Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Because I watch sports shows and documentaries on Netflix, the algorithm suggested the show Friday Night Lights to me. When I read the description I saw that it was a show based on of a book. After looking more into it I found out that their is also a movie based on the book. I put the book on my to read list for a while. When it came time to pick the next book I was going to read I looked at a blog post about Fall Book Recommendations.

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: I have two main reasons for reading Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll . The first is because I listen to The Toast and both Jackie and Claudia loved this book and recommend it. After listening to them talk about it I became interested in reading it. While they were talking about it they also said that the movie about the book is coming to Netflix and stared Mila Kunis. I love her and would love to watch her in a movie. So I read the book and then watched the movie the night I finished the book. At first I had no idea what the book was about and was not going to read any thing about it until I was talking to my mom about it and she looked it up and read what it was about. Going in I had some idea what it was about, but really had no expectations because I do not love every book recommended by Jackie and Claudia.  Content of the Book: Ani FaNelli is living the life. She lives in a glamorous New York City apartment with her handsome and successful fiancĂ©.
