Two Girls One Book Presents: Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer

Hello out there!! This week’s review is another stunning collaboration with my Bestie @Sarindre, of the fabulously awesome Geeks and Geeklets (http://geeksandgeeklets.com/).

After a fairly extensive discussion, Trey and I determined that the only thing worth discussing in regards to Life and Death is the cover art.

2 Girls 1 Show Presents – AHS: Hotel Episodes 6 & 7

Oh American Horror Story… Trey (@Sarindre) and I watch it so you don’t have to. Take a look at our findings for the past two episodes.

 

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

I am so over kidnap-and-torture-women books. Seriously. Why can’t anyone ever kidnap a guy and lock him in the basement or a barn or [insert scary isolated place here].Karin Slaughter’s Pretty Girls doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Actually, it doesn’t bring anything to the table other than gory descriptions of captive women being abused and humiliated, all the while being recorded for a snuff tape site.

Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain

Diane Chamberlain novels are my guilty pleasure. There. I’ve said it. I discovered her about two years ago with Necessary Lies and I have been shamelessly devouring her books ever since. It’s chick-lit, it’s reasonably sappy, and it’s nothing I would ever picture myself enjoying. But, for some reason, I do. Pretending to Dance is Chamberlain’s latest effort, and while it’s not my favorite, it doesn’t disappoint. Continue reading “Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain”

American Horror Story Hotel, 5:5 – “Room Service”

Check out our review of episode 4 & 5 of American Horror Story: Hotel! We had a great chat this week, especially about episode 5!

Some important points:

  • Lady Gaga’s eyebrows and how they dictate her humanity
  • Liz is by far the best character on the show
  • Where was Evan?!
  • We are going to make a top ten list of things we want to see (but probably will not) in Hotel

The Mystery of the Lost Cézanne b M.L. Longworth

Embarrassing confession time: the title of this book, The Mystery of the Lost Cézanne, led me to the assumption that this would be a story about a missing lady named Cézanne. Yes, I took Art History in college. Yes, I am reasonably educated. Alas, it took me about 30 pages to get beyond my mild confusion and realize that the title refers to the French artist, Paul Cézanne. One of his paintings is “lost.” Whoops.

The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young

One of these dreams prompts her to accept a job researching a Louisiana family in order to write a book about the mystery that has plagued them for the past thirty years. This is interesting, because it feels like it takes at least another thirty years to make it through Hester Young’s snorefest here. Continue reading “The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young”
