A Sneak Peek

I’ve been taking the time I haven’t been writing for my blog to focus on writing a novel I’ve been working on for a bit. I finally got my outline for it written so now all there is to do is write the damn thing. It’s been going slowly but I thought I would show…

Book Challenge of the Month! (August 2019)

This is a busy month for me and mine. 3 out of the 4 of us are all attending school this semester! Little Felix is the only one free of the obligation but his time will come. This month’s challenge is: A book that is over 10 years old. My challenge book is The Firm…

July Book Reviews

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan I had mixed feelings about this book. It was definitely interesting but so hateful too. The women in this book were all brought up in ways I can’t really identify with so it was all really strange to me. The mothers in the book talk about their childhoods growing…

Why I Haven’t Been Writing

It has been a tough time the past couple months. I have been so uninspired, so unmotivated in my writing and I just had to take some time away. I want to explain what has caused this feeling of not wanting to write. First off, I have a lot going on in my personal life….

Bonus Books I’ve read So Far This Year

So I’ve been a little sneaky, I’ve been reading more than what I talk about on my book challenge of the month posts. I know, whatever. I like to read. As we all know. Since we’re at the halfway point for the year I thought I’d talk about all the ones I’ve read so far….

Book Challenge of the Month (July 2019)

Hello all! Another month, another reading challenge! This month’s challenge brings with it a bit of nostalgia: A book you were supposed to read in high school but didn’t. My challenge book this month will be Lord of the Flies by William Golding. When I was in high school this book was on the assigned reading list…

June Book Reviews

The Witches of New York By Amy McKay I wanted to love this book, I really did. But it just wasn’t as good as I had hoped it would be. It’s full of all kinds of nice, witchy aesthetics but it wasn’t enough to save the story. The story was so basic, it’s definitely been done…

It’s Been Rough…

I don’t know what has been going on with me but mentally I have been feeling so unmotivated. I seem to have these moments a lot lately and it takes a while to shake it off. I especially haven’t been feeling much like writing. I look at my list of topics and none of them…

My Favorite Serial Killers: “The Co-Ed Killer”

It may sound morbid to say I have favorite serial killers, but I don’t mean it in the sense that I like the way they killed or that they exist at all. I just find them fascinating. We as humans have rules that we like to keep in order to feel safe, rules that respect…

Six Years of Marriage

Today is our six year anniversary. It does and it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. It does because we have children. It doesn’t because I’m just really happy with him. Let me just tell y’all. I was in a really unhappy relationship when I met Marc. I had never been with someone that…
