In My Own Words:
Indescribable! No, that's not the adjective I was looking for. What was it again? Oh, right. Crazy. Yep, that works.

Interests
I will read pretty much anything. I'm not big into romance, scifi, or fantasy, but there have been books in these genres that I have enjoyed immensely. The same goes for music, if it isn't Nickelback, I'll give it a fair shake.

Lancaster and York: The Wars of the Roses by Alison Weir
5.0 out of 5 stars War of the Roses, Oct. 30 2013
I love the way Alison Weir interlaces her writing style with specific examples from historical documents to support her ideas. These types of books can be very dry and difficult to get through, but her books always keep me captivated.

I have tried different types of mattress protectors before, without much success. They've all been difficult to manoeuvre, especially by myself, and most have ended up with tears or strains in the fabric.

This Sleep Tite setup is extremely easy-to-use, and is very high quality. From the zippers to the fabric, I am 100% confident in the craftsmanship of this product.

I will never buy a cheapo mattress protector from Wal Mart again!
Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the&hellip by Robin McKinley

I had high expectations for this book. I thought that a retelling of this classic fairytale would surely never have awful dry spells or ridiculous, rushed endings. Boy, was I wrong!

There were many times that, while reading this book, I wanted to throw it down in disgust. There are so many errors that could easily have been caught with careful editing. But they weren't.

Really, the story had promise. But it did not deliver. It was dry, some details left unexplained, and the ending was so rushed that it totally did not make it worth persevering through the rest of the book.
