Spelling It Like It Is by Tori Spellingspelling

From Amazon.com: Tori Spelling is the first to admit that the “real­ity” behind her popular television show, Tori & Dean, isn’t always real. Not even Star magazine could invent the true chaos that happens behind the scenes. Luckily, Tori is famously honest and self-deprecatingly funny when it comes to her personal life. She’s always Spelling It Like It Is. . . .

Yes, Tori Spelling. I love her. I watched her shows and I own all of her books. I enjoyed this one most, I think.

Invisible Man by H. G Wellsinvisible

From Amazon.com: The Invisible Man of the title is Griffin, a scientist who has devoted himself to research into optics and invents a way to change a body’s refractive index to that of air so that it absorbs and reflects no light and thus becomes invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but fails in his attempt to reverse the procedure. When he attempts to enlist the aid of former acquaintance, he is betrayed. So Griffin decides to murder his betrayer and begin a “Reign of Terror”. 

I read this one for my Facebook book club. We decided to read one of those old stories that you think you know, but never actually ready. I knew the invisible man was a bad guy, but I didn’t realize he was such a jerk. The book was fine, but didn’t hold a candle to my favorite book by Wells, War of the Worlds.

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Broshhyperbole

From Amazon.com: Every time Allie Brosh posts something new on her hugely popular blog Hyperbole and a Half the internet rejoices. Touching, absurd, and darkly comic, Allie Brosh’s highly anticipated book Hyperbole and a Half showcases her unique voice, leaping wit, and her ability to capture complex emotions with deceptively simple illustrations.

I love the Hyperbole and a Half blog, so I had been waiting for this book for while. Then I suddenly forgot all about it and was quite surprised that it had been released. My loving husband bought it for me and I caught up quick. Best quote from the book = “I am incensed that reality has the audacity to do some of the things it does when I CLEARLY don’t want those things to happen.”
