For Review

The Assassin Game looks amazing and sounds creepy. Plus, I love any title with the word assassin in it. Defending Taylor was an automatic click. I love Miranda’s stories.

What books did you get this week? Have you read any of the ones I got?

My Week

I will be at a casino with friends when this posts. I vow to actually win this time. I love Craps but most California casino’s don’t have craps tables. Ugh! So I am going to stick with Blackjack. I love me some Texas Hold’em but I am not feeling it right now.

So, I watched The Hateful Eight. Wow, that was intense. Super rough and graphic but that’s to be expected with Quentin. I would recommend it but beware, it’s depressing as frick.

That is all.

      Ugh, Blackjack was too expensive. I did good on the Roulette table thought!

    I’m planning to start getting some films watched. Mid February and not a single film review done this year! I have a TON to get through! Tomorrow night I’ll get something watched…I hope! Enjoy your books!

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      I usually don’t review movies but I like to mention the ones I watch. 😀

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Oh my god I have to look up the Assassin Game on Edelweiss now. It looks so creepy! I don’t know what it’s about, but I assume it’s about assassin’s so I’m in. I also love creepy books every now and then. And I haven’t read any books by Miranda Kenneally yet, I’m ashamed to say. Should fix that this year.

    These books are new to me, but sound good. I wonder what the assassin’s game is about and I hope you find them good reads.

    Sending you good gambling mojo….

    Holy creepy book cover! Assassin Game has one of THOSE masks – I think I’m traumatized by the movie Halloween so if I see a white mask, it gives me heebie jeebies.

    And duh on Miranda! I still need to start that no-brainer series 🙁

    Happy Valentines Day!!

    So did you win? I’m not big on casinos, but I like going and playing bingo. Yes, I’m and old lady at heart. They take that shit seriously though. lol. Yay for Defending Taylor.

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      LOL, bingo is awesome. I love Keno. I did win, not much but I love being up.

  7. Melissa (My words and pages)

    So I’m curious, did you win? lol Hope you at least broke even. 🙂 Have a great week!

    Oh wow The Assassin Game looks incredibly creepy. I mean, just look at that cover! I definitely want to try that one of myself now and I haven’t even read a review yet, ahaha. I hope you do enjoy it :3

      I love blackjack. But the tables started at $20. Too rich for my blood.
