This month has been soo busy. And it flew by in no time at all. I took a week long vacation to Ventura, California. And it was amazing. I got to visit the little island of Santa Rosa, eat some incredible Italian food.After coming back from Ventura, my birthday was right around the corner. I can officially say I have been alive for 24 amazing years. This month I discovered a new book called, “The Japanese Art of Tidying Up”, and such an amazing read. Which leads me to say, I have been getting rid of my shit. There you go I said. After discovering this book and reading a little of it, I couldn’t wait to start decluttering. And its been amazing so far. Lastly, I have applied to colleges. You heard it right here, this girl is putting her big girl pants on and going to a University. ( Which one is to be determined, but the important part is that I applied right?)
On too the books… This wasn’t the hottest reading month for me. But, the highlight that I have been the most proud of is that I have been keeping up to date with my “Research Methods,” textbook readings. WHOOP WHOOP!!! Textbooks are always the most hardest things for me to read and I tend to have the habit of procrastinating my text readings but, this semester things are going according to plan.
As far as all other books go, I only read 2 books at the very,very,very beginning of the month.
Safe Haven By Nicholas Sparks, I gave it a 3.75/5 . I wanted to love this book. However, I felt like it dragged on in places. The main character Katy, was well developed and had quite a deep story line to her. The male protagonist, Alex was a heart throb. He was a very attentive father and put his kids before everyone and everything. I enjoyed how the story developed around their relationship. There was a dark side to their relationship as Katie was running away from her demons that weren’t far behind. I enjoyed this book and the complexity that it brought with it. My one complain is that the story just dragged in some spots and I wish there was a little more action scenes because there was a lot of potential for that .
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, I gave it 2/5. This book held absolutely no meaning for me. It was fun to read, it had a little of the 90’s Rosswell vibe to it. However, it didn’t grasp my attention from the start. One day, I’ll pick up the rest of the series until then I have other things to read.
There were a total of 2 blog posts this month.
Lastly, there were ZERO videos posted this month. I did film, just haven’t been inspired to edit. There is hope September will be a better filming month.
Until Next Time…..
With warm cups of tea and just a few more chapters,
