This book is based on the character Colin and his infinite love for all named Katherine.
by page 19, i was in love.
you also get to meet his friend Hassan which you can't help but to fall in love with.
as soon as i started reading this book i was reminded of two of his other books. Paper Towns (first book of his i read. will re-read and post) and Will Grayson Will Grayson. mostly because of the location and the friendship.
after his 19th dump, Colin is beyond depressed so its Hassan's idea that they head out on a road trip to help clear his mind.
once on the road, they drive aimlessly. that is, until Colin see's a sign that says that you can visit the grave of the great Franz Ferdinand.
They end up in a town called Gutshot where they meet Lindsey. The daughter of Hollis who happens to hire them to interview all those who live in Gutshot TN to create a movie about what once was.
together all three form a friendship and discover things about each other that they didnt expect too.
i read comments over at goodreads and man people were brutal!
i do kind of agree that this was somewhat not my favorite book of his (even though i did fall in love at some parts). maybe this one would be last place but some people on there are straight tearing him one! (and i say would be because i have yet to read Looking for Alaska...i just bouuuught it!)
as always, here are spoilers so stooop reading now!!!
my ankle is still all blaaah! but any who, these are (were) my favorite shoes!!! i got them at H&M a while ago. however i wore them soooo much that basically, even though they are very uhm, air accessible, they stunk!!! i had left them alone and hadn't worn them in a few months and man they were still bad. i mean i wore these shoes EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME!!!!! to work, to Coachella, just because....i had to throw them away. it was hard.
i know kind've of a gross-ish story but still. i loved them that much! :(
if you guys EVER come across them at H&M, please let me know. i know to buy at least 5 pairs next time!
you see that little pin!? you cant really read it buuuuuut its a 5 year pin for my job! ive been at my job for 5 1/2 freakin years! ahhh!!!! where did the time go!!!? anywho, i became aware that these were a thing so i fought everyone to get one for me and my coworker. Ive been there 5 years!!! that's the least i deserve!!!!!!!
the tacos. i hate jacks tacos. with a passion. i don't think id even eat them as a last resort. the HR manager started talking something about the monster tacos and how they were delicious and how he was guna buy us some to celebrate (there are several of us that have been there a while. i think the most recent is 4 years besides the receptionist who just got hired 3 weeks ago!) so he got us jacks
sorry about the messy pics but you know....i went to target with my sis the other day and while browsing the beauty clearance section, i found this matte top coat by NYC. it turned out to be $1.82 (reg price) so i bought it!
I'm in loooove!!! its safe to say it works!!!!
(the grey color is called sidewalkers...i found that fanny!)
side note: i later on went to sephora and saw the matte version they sale for like $30....lets say, i prefer the target one (and not solely based on the price!) also, I'm glad i found this because I've seen some crazy "DIY your nails matte" online and they're crazy! (boil water AND THEN put your hand over the heat!?...uh, no thanks!"
Happy birthday Jay! ♥
