Recently I read Jonathan Stroud Lockwood&Co books series and thinking how I started to like Little Lucy more than Anthony after three books. I have to admit I was fallin in love with the crazy djini Bartimaeus first and that's the beginning story where I started collecting his books. I re-read The Creeping Shadow this week while my sister watching all Marvel's movies. But both of us have one common, curled up in our old pajamas and enjoying chocolate and hot tea
What is your recently books to read?
I like stories where womens save themselves
I don't know about, but I'm feeling 22 I just had to sneak that one in lol. Morning friends! As you can tell, today I turn 22,yaaay? I woke up with a new bust of energy and it has put me in a really good mood. There is a reflective post, where I take stock up on the blog (link in bio)
Happy Birthday to me!
After a full day of travel, we made it from snowy Minnesota to (also snowy) Arizona. Of course it would snow the day we arrive. It's really pretty here though and the weather is supposed to clear up tomorrow, so we're hoping to get out and explore a bit!
Gorgeous bookmark from my amazing friend Meghan @bookloverinblue. It's so pretty and I love this quote!
I originally saw this book at the library, liked the title, and borrowed it. When I started reading the authors’s bio, I realized he had also written the “Motivation Manifesto” and was prepared to not like this book. After reading the section about who should read this book, I decided I would give him another chance.
There were some sections that resonated well for me such as courage and the 3 traps. Otherwise, I would suggest people read the last section of the book which is the summary and then dive deeper into the sections that interests you.
Out of curiosity, I checked out some of his talks and the best way to summarize his personality - seen both in his talks and the book’s tone is #humblebrag
Tomorrow, we will be posting our March Challenge!!! Hope you all join us!!

"You really can't be trusted to just 'kill time' in a bookstore and come out empty handed." Truer words were never spoken, dear husband. He's certainly got my number. PS it could have been so much worse. .
I picked these up 'killing time' so to speak this evening. I'm really looking forward to starting them since these titles keep appearing across #bookstagram. They've been calling to me.
Stray by Elissa Sussman
(Book 1 of the Four Sisters Novel) Synopsis of the book- ‘I am grateful for my father, who keeps me good and sweet. I am grateful for my mother, who keeps her own heart guarded and safe. I am grateful for my adviser, who keeps me protected. I am grateful for the Path, which keeps me pure. Ever after.” Princess Aislynn has long dreamed about attending her Introduction Ball, about dancing with the handsome suitors her adviser has chosen for her, about meeting her true love and starting her happily ever after.
When the night of the ball finally arrives and Nerine Academy is awash with roses and royalty, Aislynn wants nothing more than to dance the night away, dutifully following the Path that has been laid out for her. She does not intend to stray.
But try as she might, Aislynn has never quite managed to control the magic that burns within her-magic brought on by wicked, terrible desires that threaten the Path she has vowed to take.
After all, it is wrong to want what you do not need. Isn’t it?
My Review on the book:
I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5 Stars for starters. I really enjoyed reading this book, it gave me a Harry Potter/Disney Princess with a twist kind of feel. It’s a fairytale type of book basically. I love Princess Aislynn’s personality and determination in this book. Its not a typical romance girly type book. It focuses on Aislynn and how she is trying to find her place on The Path and her struggle to follow the rules or her heart. She is portrayed very well and the author is fairly descriptive about things going on. I am excited to read the second book of the series, Burn.
