Like a Caveman

Pardon the dust and cobwebs settling on my blog. Life's been a bit hectic for me lately and some personal real life things have gotten in the way of my internet life. Tomorrow's my last day of school before summer break, so expect to see me more often. ;D I'll have a lot of free time to read and write reviews.

I don't really have that much time right now, but I thought I'd like to share with you a few of the books I've read recently. Because I'm lazy and in a writerly burnout, I'll only use three words to describe each book. The words may be emotions the book made me feel, (non-spoiler) events in the book, or some kind of summary or theme I felt was there. The words probably won't have anything to do with each other so don't try to piece together anything from putting them all together. I'm not clever enough to do something like that. Basically, I'll revert into Caveman Julie. Three words. Three books. This'll be fun! You can quit out of this window now, because I'm sure it'll make no sense to anyone but me. But hey, it's okay to have inside jokes with yourself, right?

Keep in mind that I may or may not write actual reviews about these books in the future.

Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Kaleb. Birds. WHY!?

Gilt by Katherine Longshore

Bitch, please. Tears.

The Story of Us by Deb Caletti

Lola. Latin Roots.
So after reading over this post, I've decided to explain my caveman musings. Mostly because I make a way too ADD a caveman.

TIMEPIECE: This isn't a spoiler because it's already been leaked a long time ago. Kaleb's the narrator in this book. Birds...well...technically this is spoiler information, even if it's unimportant. So I'll put it in white and just highlight it if you really want to see it. It doesn't really matter either way but I don't want to ruin your day. The town they're is obsessed with birds. Yeah, I went there. The last one is spoiler info, so I can't tell you about it until you've read the book. If you've read the book, email me. We need to talk.

GILT: Cat is so mean to the main character. I never really understood why they were friends. This is about King Henry VIII's 5th wife, Catherine Howard. We all know how the story ends, right? That's what the tears are for.

THE STORY OF US: This is where the ADD comes in. The main character's name is Cricket (she's a girl), which reminds me of another Cricket from another story. The sweet, shy guy Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. That Cricket's my future husband. This one character in this book smokes a lot of weed, which reminded me of the Latin Roots we learned earlier in the spring. Pot = Power. 

Finals have messed with my mind, thank you very much. I'll spend the summer recharging. Love me? Please don't judge me.


  1. Ha! Julie, or Caveman Julie as I should probably call you, I understand what it's like when real life gets in the way. I hope you'll feel less swamped once school's over. :)

    And hey, I love your sort-of reviews, especially for Timepiece. ;)

  2. I can of luck with everything!
