    How Do You Decide What To Read Next?

    I’m still trying to keep my mind busy. With losing Pascal, I’ve been in a depressed state and I’m trying to get out of that. I hate having my son see me not want to interact with the world. I hate him seeing me cry. I’m trying to feel better for him. Ever since losing my fur baby, I’ve been keeping my nose in books. I have finished two books. Escaping this world for a bit has definitely helped me out. I had a constant thought yesterday about how people decide what they’re going to read next. I have all of my unread books in an app called “Randomizer”. I…

    Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish Would Be Adapted Into A Movie Or Show

    I was going to just not do anything today. I honestly just want to sleep for about a week and ignore everything. If you don’t follow me on Twitter, you won’t know that I had to say goodbye to my cat yesterday. I’m not okay and I miss him so much already. I had him since the day he was born. I took care of him since day one and I was with him until the end. I promise I’m not trying to make you sad or depressed. I just like to talk about him because he was my baby. I’m trying to keep my mind occupied while I’m mourning.…

    Top Ten Tuesday // Favorite Quotes

    I’m changing up the original topic for this week. The topic was “Inspirational/Though-Provoking Quotes From Books”. I honestly do not have the time to try and find quotes that have inspired me. I honestly don’t keep track of those kind of quotes. Now quotes that catch my eye, that’s a different story. I’ve seen so many quotes that just make me fall in love with a story. These are all basically my favorite quotes from some of my favorite books. “Fine, make me your villain” -Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. This quote made me fall in love with The Darkling. He’s still by far my favorite villain ever. I…
