Updates

Why I Haven’t Posted As Much!

So guys I wanted to just give a little update!

I realized I haven’t been posting as much, not because I don’t love blogging anymore, but because I am in a reading slump. So book reviews are not happening because I am not finishing books. My goal is to finish Lord of Shadows this weekend or like next Monday and have a book review up on Tuesday.

It’s just my reading has been so great this year! And I’ve been reading so many books, but I’m just in a little mini reading slump. So hoping that I’ll finish LoS and it’ll kick me out of   this reading slump so I can bring you guys more book reviews and content!

I would like you guys to comment some stuff that you might like to see so I can bring you the best!

Until Next Time,

Alex

Isla and the Happily Ever After

“Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

So I read this immediately after I finished Lola and the Boy Next Door. I loved this book and the romance (again).I loved how at the end we see all of the main couples together because they are all goals. Josh and Isla are such a cute couple, but I gotta say Isla is my least favorite. She just wasn’t as inviting as Anna and Lola. I mean she was very rude and kind of jealous. But I still really enjoyed the book.

I gave this book a 5 out of 5 stars! I think honestly Josh and the romance made up for Isla’s character. They do some *naughty* things in this book so I would recommend to at least 14. Don’t those kids to be corrupted.

Until Next Time,

18 Things I Learned in 18 Years!

So since it is my 18th birthday today I thought it would be fun to do something different! And yes I know April Fool’s Day is so funny.

  1. Cherish your childhood because it will be gone.
  2. Don’t wish your life away.
  3. All the bad things that happen to you, will make you stronger. And it will get better!
  4. Do what you love and be who you are because in the end those things will make you more successful.
  5. The people that bully you, won’t matter in 10 years besides the fact you are stronger.
  6. People wil leave your life and that’s okay. Sometimes they’re only meant to be their for parts of your life.
  7. Don’t settle. Just don’t do it.
  8. Follow your heart and learn what your passion is and go for it.
  9. Be kind. Cause you don’t want to be a bad person.
  10. Eat what you want when you’re young because when you’re older you’ll have to watch out for what you eat.
  11. Love yourself because guess what hating yourself isn’t worth it. Don’t listen to what society says. Society is stupid.
  12. Take chances because life is more fun when you do.
  13. If a guy breaks your heart, well it’s just a guy. It will get better. He’s not worth it and you will find someone better.  Or girl, whatever your preference is.
  14. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Some of the best people in my life are not people I would’ve expected to make such  an impact. 
  15.  Love on your family because you never know when they are gonna be gone. I lost my dad last year and I wish that I could’ve spent more time with him and loved on him more than I did.
  16. The people you meet in high school will not always be the people you leave high school with. Or college with. Or life with.
  17. Always be true to who you are because you will attract the best people that way.
  18. Adulting is really hard. So please don’t take your family for granted or any adults because it’s really difficult.

Okay guys! I thought this would be super fun to do! I might start doing more things like this to add variety. Let me know what you think!
Until Next Time,

Alex

King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

“In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Hey guys! So I meant to post this review last week, but I was on vacation so I didn’t get around to it. So get ready for a little overload of posts this weekend (and on to next week)

So, I finished this book last Thursday and I was very happy about it. The entire book was so good and captivating and it felt so good to read. Until about 100 pages left in the book….. Then it just felt like it wasn’t needed. I mean it made sense with the ending of the book. I just wish it easier to get to the conclusion.

ALSO that ending though. Like, Victoria excuse me who gave you the right??? Just when I thought my OTP was gonna work out you throw that in there. They better work out in the next book. Wait, there is a next book, right? Cause it can’t end like that.

Anyways, I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars. It was really engaging, but I can’t get over those last 100 or so pages. I recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy/ dystopian whatever this book is categorized as. It does have some mature stuff in it, just not like overly mature if that makes any sense (does it?) So I recommend it to like 14 and up.

Until Next Time,

Alex

Family!

So, I’m super sorry I have not gotten a book review up yet, but I’ve been in a reading slump all week. School is starting back up again on Tuesday and my goal is to have the book I’m reading right now done by then. And I might have two book reviews up later this week since I read fast.

But since I haven’t gotten a book review up yet, I thought I would do something else that was on my mind since yesterday: Family.

So yesterday I celebrated my little cousin’s birthday and let me tell you in my family, birthdays are a big deal. Anyway, I was riding in the car with my mom to my aunt’s and we had a conversation about family. And like any family, it’s dysfunctional. It’s crazy and sometimes you wonder why or how you were born into it.

And my aunt and older cousin said something very smart and very true. They said that anyone who thinks they’re family is normal, is crazy. All family is dysfunctional in some way. It just so happens my family is quirky, weird, and very annoying sometimes.

But when you get the crazy family together no matter which side it’s on and you start to tell stories and laugh, you kind of realize that family is family. You can’t help that you were born into it. It may be dysfunctional, but there was a reason you were born into the family you were born into or ended up in. And family doesn’t have to be actual family, it can be close friends or mentors too. I mean honestly my best friend, youth group, and certain other people are just like family to me because they support me. The point is, family is whoever supports you and loves you unconditionally whether or not they are dysfunctional.

As Stitch said-

“This is my family. I found it all on my own. It’s little and broken, but still good. Yeah, still good.”

Love,

Alex.
