Water for Elephants
Listen as an old man unfolds a love story spanning several decades. Sprinkle in colorful circus folk. Then wonder if the author had a sudden deadline change when the ending is so abrupt.
Fifty Shades of Grey
Embarrassed that I read this, but to be fair I skimmed more than 80% of it. Curious why it’s socially acceptable to read porn, but not watch it — they’ve got the same terrible plots and dirty smut. Honestly, for a real review, read Steph’s, and learn what Mr. Grey and Oreos have in common.
First forty pages were a chore. Plot twist kept me reading. Wait what — that was the end?
Interesting at first, then slightly repetitive. Mr. Sacks enjoys talking about all the other books he’s written. My hallucinations and I now know why things go bump in the night.
Mark reminded me that I had picked up the first book of the Song of Ice and Fire series (did I get that name right? I, to the dismay of fans I’m sure, have been calling the whole series “game of thrones” — I can hear cringing).
Game of Thrones
Slow-moving plot. Too many characters. TLDR.
Read any good books lately?
Currently reading: The Night Circus, Intuitive Eating, and World War Z. Going to start Mockingjay soon.

Hi there. I'm Calee (pronounced CAL-e). If that's too hard, just call me Cal. Also known as chimes or the chimes. I'm 28ish, a designer, a runner, a self-proclaimed fitness queen, a craftster, a foodie, a music snob — some might call me a hipster. Here's the unabridged version.
