Personal Update: 

Work work work work….. That is what my life has become! This past week I had very long shifts that I had to get used to so those took up all my time. I have made some new coworker friends so that is making it much more fun! Other than that nothing else is new for me.

I am only on chapter 3 of this book so far but it seems very interesting! I haven’t had too much free time to read so I am slowly trying to sneak in some time.

 

 

 


Have an amazing week and keep on reading!

Personal Update:

I made it through my first week of work!!!! Ahhh what a week it was. I have been overwhelmed and an anxious mess since I started so I can only hope that lessens as time moves forward. I apologize for the lack of posts this week, I will be catching up this coming week.

I am enjoying what I am doing and everyone has been so kind, for that I am lucky. My people person persona is popping up more and more!

Thanks to Regan from PeruseProject over on Youtube I have decided to pick up this novel!

Synopsis via Goodreads: 

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals.

But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he’s willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.


I hope you all have an amazing week ahead!

Personal Update:

This week was yet another boring week for me! I had lunch with a good friend but other than that I have been enjoying the nice warm weather and getting some much needed vitamin D.

Also, tomorrow is the first day of my job!!! EEP! I’m a bundle of nerves right now since this will be my first job/day on the job. A large part of me is anxious (what’s new?) and the other, smaller, part of me is excited. I feel that I am looking forward to getting out of the house and meeting some new people.

Personal Update: 

Not too much to went on this week for me! I have started to write again which has me in better spirits. I think that having this blog had something to do with it. Writing is a passion of mine and one day I hope to pursue it as a career and this is just another step for me to achieve that goal.

This week we also reached 15 followers so thank you! It means so much to me that people read/follow/enjoy this blog. My love goes out to all of you!

Tomorrow I will embark on starting Voyager by Diana Gabaldon! I finished Dragonfly in Amber last week and it has taken all my might to take this weekend off from reading and relax!

Voyager is the continuation of Jamie and Claire’s love/story. Jamie’s memory never left Claire and now that she knows everything she ever thought about his history to be wrong she must make decisions and choose her destiny, two things that won’t only effect her but also those she loves around her.


I hope that you all have a lovely week ahead! This week I will be participating in “This or That #43” and #T5W’s topic of “Favorite Literary Fathers/Father Figures.”Stay safe and stay reading!

Personal Update: 

I am officially a high school graduate!!! This past Thursday I graduated high school and wow did the time fly. I really can’t believe that I finished writing such a large chapter of my life.

I also got my first job this week! I will be part of the working force soon. It’s crazy that all of these new things are happening in a blink of an eye. I will still be reading like crazy, job or not!

I have officially started book 2 to Outlander!! EEP! I am absolutely in love with this series so far. The first part of this book really captured my attention but the part I am at now is slow. I am powering my way through though! I am in love with Diana Gabaldon’s writing style and the narration.

I am going on week 2 of reading Outlander and I can definitely say I am hooked! I had only been reading a chapter a day to pace myself but that thinking has flown out the window. As of last night I have hit part four and it is full steam ahead on the Outlander train. I am officially 50% done with the novel and hope to complete it this week!

This was a book I was intimidated by but no longer. Sometimes it is good to take a chance and jump right into something!

 

 


I hope that you all have an amazing week ahead! This week I will be participating in “This or That #41” as well as this weeks #T5W topic “Book Theme Songs”…. You know I’m going to go all out!

Personal Update:

THIS IS MY LAST WEEK OF HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!! I can’t believe that the past 4 years have flown by and that I am finishing writing the high school chapter of my life. I have been so blessed to meet the kindest of people, a few that share a love of puns and books as well.

Not too much else to report, this past week has been pretty boring but this week will definitely pass by quickly!

I have finally jumped onto the Outlander train! A few weeks back I spoke about this being a book I am intimidated by but I decided to conquer my fear.

I am about 100 pages in and I am hooked!! I adore Claire, she is smart and strong and her narration isn’t annoying in the slightest. I’ve already caught the feelings for Jamie too. Eeep!
