Book Review: The Never List


Sarah and Jennifer are really careful, trusting their never list to keep them safe. A list they created after a horrible accident, one that made them more like sisters than friends. But one night they accidently break the worst possible rule they could on the never list and it costs them their freedom. Ten years later, Sarah is still trying to cope with the fact that Jennifer didn’t make it out of the cellar with her, and that the man who kidnapped them might be getting out for parole. Sarah decides she needs to find more evidence to keep that horrible man locked away.

The Never List by Koethi Zan was released early this year and I grabbed it while I was in a hurry at the library solely based on it’s title and the cover. I had absolutely no clue what it was about when I checked it out. I enjoyed this book. It’s dark and twisted, with plenty of things that you absolutely do not expect to happen. I think what made this book a bit darker for me, is that I have my own Never List of sorts. I grew up being very aware of the terrible horrible things that could happen to me. I still follow some of those rules I made up for myself, while others have proved to be unnecessary. However, reading this book, where these girls did everything they possibly could to keep themselves safe and they still ended up in this situation, absolutely horrified me. They were so careful, and they didn’t even mean to break the rule, it just happened.

Final Verdict: I fully recommend this book, I adored it and it’s going on my books I’ve read but want to buy and read again list.

Today’s outfit is actually a variation of one that I made a wishboard for last year.


I’m wearing a sweater from Gap, and the Victoria’s Secret Most Loved Leggings, my socks are from Target’s $1 section last Valentines Day.


On My Face: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia, Nars Blush in Deep Throat, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla and YSL Babydoll Mascara. Hair tie: Emi-jay. Glasses: Kate Spade


This is definitely an outfit that is cozy and comfortable, which was necessary because I sat down with this book and finished it all in one go. I like to be really cozy and comfortable when I read thrillers or horror novels, because it’s much easier to deal with the horrors of the world if you’re safe and cozy at home. I mean that’s so obvious that even Tool has a song about it.




I’ve needed reading glasses since I was in 7th grade.  That’s 13 years people.  I have never once loved my glasses, or even liked them.  It’s always been a case of “that’ll do, lets get out of here”.  But one of my lessons from Stacy and Clinton, was also a lesson reinforced by my husband (in an utterly separate circumstance, he generally does not watch WNTW) which is if you don’t love it don’t buy it.  So since it’s time for my annual eye exam, I’ve decided to replace my glasses this year (my prescription usually doesn’t change and I only need them for reading, computer, and sometimes laptop work) and had been hunting online for glasses I wanted.  Surprise, Surprise, it was my husband who found them.  This happens a lot actually people, and he’s usually my tie-breaker when I don’t know which color to buy. It’s because he knows me really well, and I often get overwhelmed when making a big purchase and suddenly even if I was super sure before, don’t know which one to get.  He usually has me go with my first choice, and it’s always right.  But back to the glasses.  The glasses are the Kate Spade Edie glasses.  I am in love with the way they look, and all the reviews say that they’re really lightweight, which is absolutely necessary since my current glasses give me terrible headaches behind my ears.  They’ve actually always done this and it’s horrible, since I wear glasses so I don’t get headaches when I read. Now I just have to find an optometrist that stocks them or is willing to order them

What I’ve learned today is to look at my glasses as an accessory since I do sometimes have to wear them in public, and when my sinuses are messed up I can’t read a thing without them (it’s really weird I swear).  I’m never going to be that girl who wears contacts, mostly because I’ll never be that girl that needs to wear her glasses all the time.  Even still, I probably wouldn’t do contacts full time, glasses are 100% important.  I had been putting more thought into what I would wear to bed than I was my glasses in the past, and it has caused me to end up with some really stupid looking glasses. Even if you hate that you have to have glasses, get gorgeous ones, they’ll make you feel better about them.  Realize they’re another accessory, and can be fun or colorful, but still shoot for a bit practical people, else they won’t go with everything and you’ll look a bit silly.
