I'm knee deep reading The Little Book of Heartbreak  by Meghan Laslocky, and I can't seem to think about anything else but finishing it. So, this outfit? Yeah. Skulls. Crosses. Black. Red. Done. Please excuse me while I go back to my reading devouring of this book.

I love this book because it's got a little bit of everything: Abelard and Heloise, love potions and magic, Ernest Hemingway, and even Morrissey. If you like reading stories about love throughout the ages with all its aches and pains told in the most hilarious and witty of ways, please check this gem of a book out.

Tell me: what books are you reading right now?

  1. I love it when I find a book and can't put it down. I will definitely check this out since I have been in a reading slump lately. Maybe this will recharge my batteries.

    Loving your skull and crossbones paired with the red. A perfect combo! Heather

  2. Oooh, the book sounds awesome! I'm currently reading a book called The Gates of Hell about the Franklin Arctic expedition (I'm hooked).

  3. I'm about ten years behind in some of my reading, so right now I'm reading The Time Traveler's Wife. I love reading a book that is hard to put down!

  5. I'm currently reading Returning to Earth by Jim Harrison- I found it in a thrift store, and I was intrigued. It has already made me cry, and I'm about halfway through it, but I am really enjoying it so far. That skull top is fantastic!

  7. I just finished a book called Serena about a couple living in the mountains of North Carolina in the 20s, but I did not really like it. Now I'm about to start Where'd you go Bernadette? and I'm really excited because I've heard nothing but good things!

  8. There's something timeless about skulls, black, white, and red. It just works and shouldn't be messed with. Lately I've been rifling my way through the .50 bookshelves at Goodwill searching and have been loving some of my finds. There's nothing like curling up with a good book after a long day.

  11. Right now I'm reading a book of fairytale reinterpretations called "My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me." It's... interesting. I've really enjoyed several of the stories, but there were a few that I just found confusing and/or really unnecessarily perverse.

  17. Ahhh these shoes are too cute! I love the story behind this outfit. Maybe I'll pick up the book if I can ever afford to read again-- New York is too expensive :(

  20. Hah, I love that feeling when you have a book so good you can't put it down! The last books that I couldn't out down was Bernard Cornwell's Arthur series. (It was fantastic, one of the best takes on King Arthur that I've read.) I'm really bad about reading four or more books at once, I'm trying to finish re-reading the Ender series and then I've got a collection of T.S Elliot's poems and a book about the Johnstown flood. Your book sound so interesting, I'm going to Barns and Noble later this week so I'll have to look for it, I'm always excited to hear what books other people recommend!

    Anything with skulls prints is flippin' awesome, this sweater is the best. (They're happy looking skulls!) But I think it's your adorable bow wedges that do it for me, those are so sweet and I love them paired with the sweater. :)

  21. That book looks so interesting! I might have to pick it up after I'm done reading The Trial. I'm loving the red pants! I need to get myself a pair too!

  22. You look great. I love your red pants. I really need to own a pair of red pants.

    I think I would love this book. I need to add it to my list of books to read after I finish the huge stack I purchased the last time I was in a used book store.

  23. oooh are those sparkle skulls? with a lace scarf? and ever so slightly gothy pants? love it. im reading yet another harlan coben murder mystery. suspense, drama, intrigue, but not so complicated that you cant read it sleepy before bed, yet attention grabbing enough that you want to finish it

  24. Oh I love moments like that, being so engrossed in a good book. Right now I just got Crown Duel, I've heard mixed reviews but we'll see. Love the skull and cross top.

  26. I love when you find a book (or series) that completely sucks you in! red pants, can't ever go wrong with them!

  27. Your hair is so green and fabulous! That book sounds good so it's going on the goodreads list. I just finished Set This House in Order by Matt Ruff. It's about 2 people with multiple personality and how they deal with it and live their lives. Really interesting and well written. Stayed up until 3am last night reading!

  28. I'm reading a book about griffins...The Land of Burning Sands, which is the second in a trilogy. I read Equus before that, which was intense, but such a well-crafted play. My favorite book last year was The Night Circus, and I haven't found anything recently that is as good.
