I know guys….I’m three days late. What else is new? But let’s get to the new blog shall we?

Now I know I said I was going to try to be a better blogger and I know that I am sucking at it! I’m sorry! But I promise I am going to be better at it! I have a ton of things that I need to blog about! Such as books that I’ve read and in June I am going to New Orleans! I am sooo excited!

Also I am going to try to write short stories again. I have been in a kind of writers block/ funk and I am ready to get out of it!

Okay well I thought I would just update you guys a little bit. I hope everyone has a good day and I hope that May brings you happiness!

‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ by Morgan Matson book review!

‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ by Morgan Matson book review!

18189606

Hey guys! I’m back with another book review; so let’s get started!

‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ by Morgan Matson is a discover yourself, adventure type book. So if you’re into that kind of stuff then this book is for you! Now I chose this book because of the cover to be honest and plus I like reading about adventures! I think the cover is awesome and beautiful and the girls look so real, which the girls who posed for the pictures probably are, and I just love it!

Now about the book itself: It’s about these two best friends named Emily and Sloane. They spent practically everyday together for the last two years. Emily is more introverted and not out there and Sloane was the complete opposite. Right before they were supposed to have an epic summer, Sloane just disappears. All she leaves behind for Emily is a to do list of thirteen things that Emily would never ever do!

But Emily hopes that by doing these things on the list she can maybe find Sloane. She also meets people along the way who help her out.

I love this book because I relate to the main character Emily because I am introverted. Also I love the adventures she has while filling out the list. So if you want to check this book out it’s available wherever books are sold. And if you want to check out the author she has an instagram and twitter! Morgamat Insta Twitter

Alright guys that’s all I got for tonight! I hope you enjoyed this review! I hope you guys have a great night/morning/afternoon wherever you’re from! Leave a comment about your favorite book and I’ll check it out! 🙂

Hey Guys! Well it’s the last day of February and almost the end of winter, although where I live we didn’t get much of a winter anyways. So let me catch you up on some things.

Our weather has been crazy here this winter. We have had snow, seventy degree weather, thunderstorms, and just about everything in between! I live in “tornado valley” and I’m surprised we haven’t had one yet. But tornado season is almost here. Tell me in the comments how the weather has been like in your area! 🙂

Book Review: Children of Eden by Joey Graceffa

m4pgc5trr6orc18o4y3o_children-of-eden-book-cover

Here is my review of Joey Graceffa’s book that came out Oct. 4th, 2016: 

In my personal opinion I loved it. Basically it’s about a girl named Rowan and how she has lived her life as a “second child” in a post apocalyptic world. Eden was created to help save what was left of the human population and to help Earth get better again because humans were destroying it. So a guy named Al-Paz came up with Eden, a sanctuary where the rest of the human population could live, while Earth could try to “repair” itself.

Now because there were very limited resources they had to come up with a law that there could only be one child per family. If a second child is caught they are either put to death or become slaves. Rowan was born as a twin. Her brother Ash was born first. But her parents didn’t want to give her up so they hid her in their home. They had a wall so she could go outside but not be seen. Ash would come home from school and tell Rowan everything she wanted to know.

That’s all the “spoilers’ you’re going to get from me! 😉

The book is really well written and you do get into the characters. I believe anyone who reads this will enjoy it. Especially if you are into post-apocalyptic books. I really want to se this made into a movie.

If you want to check out this book you can go to Walmart, Target, Barnes and Noble, or wherever books are sold! Also if you want to check out the author you can go to his Youtube channel here: Joey Graceffa  ❤

Alright guys that’s it for today! Have a great day and I’ll see you soon! 🙂

Future Plans…

Hey guys! Lately I have really been thinking about my future. I am 24 years old and I barely do anything besides work and come home. I really do want to pursue my dreams, but I can’t do that where I live now.

I really want to become a writer or a marriage and family therapist. I have went to college, but it lasted a year due to my math grades. I am planning on getting my drivers permit and then license soon, but first I have to learn to drive.

I know a lot of you will think “Well that’s easy, just learn to drive, it isn’t that hard.” but you see I am 4’7″ and, as funny as this may sound, my feet can just barely touch the pedals. So if I learn to drive I still need to get pedal extenders and they can be expensive.

But anyways I’m here to talk about my future plans. Once I do get my license, I want to move to Los Angeles, CA and go to a community college there so I can either be a better writer and someday an author or a marriage and family therapist. And also I would need to save money obviously.

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Everyone moves to L.A. to pursue their dreams and most of them don’t work out.” Well I believe if I tried hard enough I could pursue those dreams. The only obstacle is myself. I believe L.A. is my type of city and atmosphere. No I have never been, but I’ve watched a lot of youtubers who live there and a lot of them I relate to. L.A. just seems to work for them and I hope it will for me.

Anyways just thought I would let you all in on this thought I had. Hope everyone has a great day and a great weekend! 🙂

Stay Humble and Beautiful
