{Exclusive Guest Post} Highly Illogical Behavior by John @Corey_Whaley

Today I have John Corey Whaley, the author of Highly Illogical Behavior  at Book Briefs to share 25 facts about him that you didn’t know. Welcome Corey! 25 Random Things About John Corey Whaley: I’m a professional-grade whistler. I’m not kidding. I can whistle most anything you name and I can usually do it from hearing a song just once. I hate lettuce. Hate it.  It tastes like poison to me.  And this is very funny and confusing to most people. Adults in costumes (a la Halloween or at theme parks, etc.) really bother me. I don’t trust them.  What are they hiding? I have a love/hate relationship with politics, but still may go into them someday if the mood strikes. I minored in French in college, and I used to be partially fluent, but now I can barely understand a word unless it’s written down for me. I’m allergic to Penicillin. The miracle drug.  Of course. (Turns out, antibiotics are most likely not that great for us, so joke’s… Read more »

{Review} Like it Never Happened by Emily Adrian @adremily

{Review} Like it Never Happened by Emily Adrian @adremily

Like it Never Happened is a young adult contemporary book set featuring a high school drama troupe. A group of five friends and the story of their high school years. I really enjoyed reading Like it Never Happened. It reminded me of 90s shows like Salute your Shorts and Clarissa Explains it all, though I am not really sure why. It is set in contemporary 2014/2015, but it really felt like a 90s throw back to me, and I totally loved that.

I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us readers next. Like it never happened follows a group of 5 best friends, and their trials and tribulations in the theater at their school.
