Yes, I am aware that I have already posted (the tag below) today, but! I wanted to share something real quick!

Been busy with school and whatnot during the week (of course), but for those of you who haven't checked out my book review blog Randomly Reading, you should consider heading on over and taking a look!

I have a new book review up this week, Wondrous Strange by Leslie Livingston.

What are you waiting for? Read on! haha

PS Next week a special review on Beastly by Alex Flinn...some of you may have seen the preview for the movie starring Vanessa Hudgens (hoping this is a role she might actually do well in...) which was supposed to come out this summer but was pushed back 'til next year. Its a modern day Beauty & the Beast tale. Anyways, here's the movie trailer and a special preview of the book review!

 ***Viewer Disgretion Advised for short flashes of violence and cussing (though definitely nothing worse than IS a preview)***

(from the inside flap)
       A beast. Not quite a wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore.
       I am a monster.
       You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. Its no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.
       Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I’ll tell you how I became perfectly…beastly.
