50/50 Friday - Best/Worst Read of December 2019

What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favorite and then we have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. I'll have a new topic every Friday. If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let me know!

Topic for the Week
Best/Worst Read of December 2019
So I didn't actually have a bad month of reading in December. Did I stick to my holiday TBR? No... just like I knew I wouldn't but I still made one anyway. Story of my life! But I did read some Christmas stories and some witchy books. Around this time of the year I always fall heavily back into my Pagan and witchcraft books. I mean I read them all year but winter just seems to be the time where I have to be reading one.

So the lowest rated book I got is three stars and I still liked it pretty well. So not a bad reading month at all! So with all that out of the way, let's just get to this shall we? 

Worst Read - To Light a Sacred Flame
If you read witchy book than you've heard of Silver RavenWolf and how some people hate her freaking guts and others love her to death. I'm pretty centric in the matters... as I usually am in most matters. So I did enjoy this book but at times felt a little like I was being talked down but the author just felt so down to earth that it could've been just me as this is more a beginner kind of book and I'm more intermediate these days. 

Best Read - Obsidian 
This was a reread for the JLA Facebook Book Club that I'm a part of. It's just as great now as it was then. Love this book to death! 

So what was your favorite read of last month? How is 2020 treating you? Let me know below and have a great day little butterfly!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda
