 Blog Update Number 2

I hope you all are having a great week so far. We don't have that much left to go. Friday is almost upon us....just hold on a little longer.

This past week I have stumbled upon something very addicting. BOOKSTAGRAM. I know I'm very late about it but I have fallen in love with it. I found some really great bookstagrammers and some awesome blogs as well. I have a regular instagram but for the life of me, I don't know why I didn't start a bookstagram.
I am nowhere near a professional photographer but I try to add some really nice touches to it.

 My family and I had a great time this pass weekend. It was a last minute trip but it was very needed. The water was great. I didn't swim much but the point of it was

I purchased four books(early birthday present to myself). My favoirte book series is Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. I ship Warner so very much! I loved him way more than I did Adam. But, I love bad guys in most stories anyway. I also got the Young Elites by Marie Lu. I haven't read this one yet but I can't wait. I heard some really great things about it.

That is all with bookish things.

My birthday is this weekend and I have plans to go to dinner with friends. I'm going to a restaurant that I haven't been to before so that will be fun. I love any excuse to put on a nice dress, heels, and makeup.

That is all for this week. 
What do you guys have coming up?

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.








This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…
