Whoops, it's been a crazy month, hasnit?

I'm going to be doubling up on some posts that I've been working on to fill in the gaps, so you should be seeing a couple this week! For now, I thought I'd do one of my favorite things to post about and let you know what I've been digging my nose into!

For the last couple of weeks, I've been tackling my to-read list on Goodreads. I have a stockpile of books sitting in my room, waiting for me to go through them. But I have a habit of getting more from the library anyway. Does anyone else have problem? You have something on hand to read, but you get something else? It's not really helping, but I guess I can't complain, seeing that the books are still there waiting for me.

Anyway, I drove through Lauren Grahams' Someday, Someday, Maybe. A really cute novel about a girl going to school for acting and finding her footing in the crazy career of show business, set in New York. It was quirky and fun in all the right places.

I've also been going through some Disney reads. Books that have twists and backstories on some of our favorite villains and tales. First are the Twisted Tales collection by Liz Braswell. There are three and include Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast. The purpose is to reimagine the story we know into something completely different. I read the Aladdin one sometime last year and the plot was what if Jafar had gotten to the lamp first? Sleeping Beauty's is what if she never woke up. And lastly, Beauty and the Beast is what if Belle's mother cursed the beast? I love the concept and they have been fun to read.

There are three other Disney books I have on hand by Serena Valentino, who delves into the pasts and presents of three well known villains; Ursula, Maleficent, and the Beast. (I don't consider the Beast a villain, personally, but I suppose some would.) I've already read Ursula's story and it was crazy interesting. I won't give anything away, but it really goes into detail about her relationship with King Trident and how deep her hatred is for most of the people around her.

What books have you been into lately?
