Thursday's Discussion - Diversity

So this is going to really something that has been bothering me for a while but I'm been nervous to say anything but I decided not to care anymore and I'm just going to put my thoughts out there. I am warning everyone, there might be some things that offend you, turn back now if you get easily offended. Diversity. It's a word we all know now. It's either something we are all for or hate it completely. I am one of those that are all for it. We need more diversity in books, movies, TV, and so on. Though here is where I get pissed. So many 'fans' of Sarah J Maas are getting pissed at her that her characters are all white, and straight. Or they getting angry that even though she made a bi character but he's still with a girl. I understand where people are coming from, so please don't think I don't. The world is so much more beyond white and straight.  But I think this is completely not right. We should never ever, send death threats and attack people. E

ReMade Season 1 Episode 1 (Shadows & Dreams) - Review

You live. You love. You die. Now RUN. ReMade. Every minute, 108 people die. On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. Awakened in a post-apocalyptic world and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure. ReMade will unfold across 15 episodes. "Shadows and Dreams" is the first episode. Holden Black never imagined his crush knew his name, much less that he’d suddenly be driving her to a party. But life can change in a second, especially when you’re 16. A look. A flash of headlights. A scream. What do you do when the unexpected jumps straight to the unbelievable, the dream becomes a nightmare, and waking changes everything except your heart’s desire? This episode written by Matthew Cody. Episode Breakdown This is my first time ever reading a serial and I was really

Top Ten Tuesday - Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish . So I'm taking this to mean books I want to read this fall because I don't think I could fill up a list of books just coming out in fall I want to read. I'm trying to be pickier in my tastes and which books I choose to support. So yeah, this is just going to be a list of book I want to read during the fall. Also can we just stop and take a moment to really think about how the nasty summer is over? Yes, summer is over! Bring on fall and hot cocoa, cold weather, fire places and curling up outside and not sweating your butt off! I love this time of the year, I just wish the weather out here would realize it's fall and cool down... These aren't in any order, just the books I want to read before the first snow falls. Which out here means I have a very very long time. Can you tell I hate the heat? I need to live somewhere where it's only fall and winter all year around. No joke. 10) Ink 9) Ensnared

Music Monday - Different Genres

Music Monday is weekly meme hosted by Always Me I actually heard this song in Target while I was looking at books and it reminded me of Aelin, well the course did and I had to download it on Apple Music.  This next one is the only song I like by this group. I'm not even kidding it's really weird but this song is just too good. This is the nightcored version as I like it better.

Sunny Sunday's Updates

So I've been trying to find a way to show weekly updates on my blog and I've seen a few memes that do this and I've tried one and it was just too much. I couldn't find one that worked for me. So I just decided to make my own little update. This way I can just update you guys on what is going on with me while all the other stuff. So here we go!  Currently Reading               ReMade 1.3                                                                                             Amber Smoke  I've not made any progress on Amber Smoke, I will finish this book before the end of the month! I don't know if I'll write a review as I won't really have anything good to say unless it somehow gets better. I'm almost half way done and still nothing that screams at me to finish or even read the next one. Ugh. As for ReMade, it's really cool. I'm enjoying following these teens as they try to figure out what's going on, though I still know nothing. So man

50/50 Friday Meme - Update!

So 50/50 Friday will be a weekly meme hosted by myself and the wonderful Laura from Blue Eye Books . It's going to officially kick off on the 7th of October ! I can't wait! I've been wanting a meme for so long and now not only will it come to life but I have an amazing partner. Seriously guys, you have no idea how bad I feel, Laura has done so much that I feel so badly for her. I wanted her help but it's really like she's doing all the work. I'm so sorry Laura! Work sucks and really takes up more of time than I'd like. The first ever topic for 50/50 Friday is... drum roll please! Overrated/Underrated Book This one is pretty simple, just pick a book you think is overrated and explain why and the same for underrated. I can't wait to see all your answers! Have a great weekend, when this post goes live I will be at a work, which I'm sure surprises no one anymore.

Crown of Cinders - Cover Reveal

Crown of Cinders Rebecca Ethington (Imdalind, #7) Publication date: November 28th 2016 Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult The Internationally Best-Selling Imdalind Series comes to a close in this long awaited heart-pounding conclusion. For centuries the war that has raged within magic has ripped the world apart. Fought between Skȓítek and Trpaslík; killing father and son, and destroying a fragile balance between mortal and magic. For centuries everyone has been awaiting the Silnỳ, searching for the girl who was prophesized. The girl with power strong enough to defeat the evil that plagued the world, and bring the war to an end. For centuries, everyone was wrong. The Silnỳ was not what they had been told, the promises of future distorted by a sight that was tarnished. The evil was not what they had expected, not what they had been fighting against. Instead it was hidden amongst them; plotting, waiting for their time to strike. And it did. With fire and blade the hidden evil took it’s place

You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me, everyone wins. The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read . So I have one book betrayal story. The only time I ever lent a book out to someone. It was way back in grade school for me. There was this girl who also liked to read and where I'd recently gotten into reading, so I decided to talk about the book series with her, she said they sounded really good and wanted to read them. So I let her borrow the first two so she could read them. A week went by and she said nothing about the books. I thought this was odd as she was a huge speed reader, but maybe she had to study a lot. She was top of the class after all. Two weeks, not a word and during this t

My Reading Story

So this is something I've wanted to do for a long time but I haven't had the time until down. This post has been months in the making. I guess I should start with the person who started my love of reading. My 6-8th grade teacher: Mrs Trumper.  She was such a huge role model to me when I was younger. Let me start from the very beginning, When I was to start Kindergarten at age 5, my little sister was born and so my mother didn't want me to feel like she was pushing me away or something so she kept me another year. So when I finally started school at 6 years old, I was always behind one year. So finally when I was in fifth grade and all my friends left to another room in the school. (I went to a small private school where there was three grades to one room. So when I was in 5th grade, my friends went to the next room which was for 6th-8th grade). I was so sad and lonely, also my 5th grade teacher got upset with me a lot as I knew the answer to every question and never gave th

Music Monday - Lady Gaga

Music Monday is hosted by Always Me . So I've so in love with this new song, I stayed up late listening to this song on repeat and I know all the lyrics. I'm so glad that she's back and putting out better stuff than the last album that shall never be named as it was terrible. This is such a good song and her voice is so real. She's back!!! The next one I want to share is my favorite Lady Gaga song from her second and one of her best albums in my opinion. So I hope you enjoy this next song as much as I do. So what songs are you listening to this week? Have a great day and happy reading!
