🤷🏾♀️ That‘s really all I got. You can catch my thoughts on this book at https://aspiringwriternicolegbrent.wordpress.com/2019/07/11/is-july-going-to-be-...
So I just downloaded the new app called bookmeet; which is supposed to not only help you connect with friends that are readers but possibly find love in the bookish community as well. Honestly traditional dating sites suck...but I do like this this thing has a book club feature. Anyone else using it? It might be a good hangout app for bookclubs! #bookmeet
What am I doing on my Sunday night: Reading of course. I‘m back to my one sit reads. I had a 3$ Verizon up reward for Barnes and Noble so I used it on the nooks ebook edition of The Handmaid‘s Tale Graphic novel. I watch the show, I own the book (and no I haven‘t read it) and honestly while I find this adaptions art to be pretty I‘m still not inspired to read the book. #onesitreads #feministreading
After being so disappointed in my last read I decided that maybe getting back to my comfort zone would be best. So I dusted off Mayhem. It‘s been on my shelves for about 8 months or so....
First reaction: THIS IS GOOD. I hope the author keeps up the pace and tension throughout. I‘m only three chapters in but I like it. #books #murder #london
I usually never give up on a book but....I had to bail. This bored me to death. I appreciate dry, British humor....but this wasn‘t that. It was just underwhelming. Which sucks because I so wanted to love it. #goodomens #books #booklover #Ibailed
Let‘s talk about these reads lol....so I got caught up trying to complete a series. I still have one book to go in the Sookie Stackhouse series and I hope to start and finish it this weekend. Also, Ghosts of the Shadow Market 😍....soooooo gooooooddddd! I can not wait to get my hands on the first book in the Last Hours series (TBR March of 2020). #books #sookiestackhouse #bookaddict #reader
I‘m really sadden to read of the passing of civil rights icon and real life Disney Princess, Leah Chase, today at the young age of 96. She walks with the ancestors now. I hope the restaurant goes on in her memory...I can‘t wait to eat there next summer ♥️. #NOLA #OntoherGreatReward #LeahChase #Disney
Sooooo......I thought I was happy with the first three stories from the Shadow Market collection but this one was wonderful. So much to love about this entire short story. I‘m super happy to see the introduction of a lesbian Shadowhunter to the mix. And for it to be happening in a very Victorian setting. I really can not wait to see what Anna Lightwood gets up to in The Last Hours. Anna has so much swag y‘all...you don‘t even know.
Another blast from the past.....Spice world. It‘s hard to believe that I was 13 when this movie came out?! Is it bad that this movie is now 22 years old and I still love it! 😂🤣. Also, this album was everything! (“Never Give up on the good times” is still my jam)! BTW Scary and Ginger where my favorite Spice Girls! #thespicegirls #bookbabe35 #memorylane #melb #scaryspice #gerihalliwell #gingerspice
@backstreetboys where literally one of the many reasons my family teased me in my pre-teen and teen years. I was a girl obsessed. Posters on every wall and the ceiling to. I was no joke when it came to my guys. I‘m 35 and I still have the first @nickcarter poster I ever taped on my wall 🥰. #bookbabe35 #backstreetboys #celebrating35yrsofMe
One of my favorite moments of the past few years was the completion of my Masters degree. It was a full circle moment for me. A moment I‘ve never regretted. If only I had a nice cushy job in my field....kicking ass and taking names. Even without the job I don‘t regret one moment of my Grad education. #bookbabe35 #masters #bloggerlife
Next up...the Shows that got me through college. Both times. Grey‘s was everything for YEARS. I sadly gave it up after Cristina‘s exit. And really stopped watching after Derek‘s death. Torchwood started my obsession with BBC America. And lead to my love of Doctor Who. I‘m still a Huge Supernatural Fan; Dean is Bae. All the rest are bad ass...if you get a chance to watch Sanctuary you should it‘s sooooo goood! #syfy #bookbabe35 #reading
90‘s tv had to be some of the best stuff ever. It‘s kind of weird to think that most of my favorite shows aren‘t something most of those younger than me have ever seen. #bookbabe35 #clarissaexplainsitall #blossom #thenanny #dinosaurs #fullhouse #familymatters #disney #bookbabe35
Of course my countdown really begins with a quote..this one remains the one that is closest to my heart. I have always believed in the goodness of all. I‘ve always believed that everyone deserves a chance to let their goodness shine; even when they‘ve shown me their worse. Some people close to me see this as one of my weaknesses. I think it‘s a strength of mine. #annefrank #bookbabe35 #annefrank #livingwithpurpose
Today marks the 40th day until my 35th Birthday. I want to take these forty days to re-introduce myself. Share all the things I‘ve loved along the way; everything from books, to music, to people. I believe my 35th year will be a magical and beautiful one. I‘m so ready to hit my mid-30‘s.....I‘m leaning into them hard and with as much poise and grace as God will allow. I‘ll be using #Bookbabe35 on these posts. #livingwithpurpose
