Friday Reads & TV Shows

Last week I did my Friday reads as a video, and that was suppose to be the plan for this week as well but everything went wrong. First the sun was not working with me at all today. I said I would always do my Friday reads by the fireplace (at least there's a picture!) and Mr. sun did not like that idea today. He made it impossible to do. Since the fireplace is close to my French doors there was no blocking the sun off. Then I got a new computer yesterday and it has window's 8 which I am not use to at all and the movie maker is completely different. For some reasons my videos would not upload to movie maker to edit. Everything has been so hectic and annoying, but when I think about it maybe it worked out for the best. I feel like my YouTube channel gets more love from me then the blog does maybe this is a way to change that. So without farther explanation here is my Friday Reads:
I will be reading Of Triton which I have already started and I am enjoying it. I am about 100 page…

Of Poseidon

"Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen-literally, ouch!-both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom...Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance."

I really enjoyed Of Poseidon so much in fact that I have read it twice. Of Poseidon is the first book in the Syrena series, and this book is full of humor I was laughing from the very first page. The best part of this book was how much I laughed like a crazy person. Emma and Galen keep having strange encounters, and while Galen has an explanation for them, Emma just thinks he's a creepy stalker who wants to sue her for running i…

The Burning Sky: Spoiler Video

The Burning Sky

It all began with a ruined elixir and an accidental bolt of lightning…

Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death.

Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he's also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to avenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal.

But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his
mission and her life.

Sounds amazing right? Well it was beyond amazing and reminded me of Ha…

Divergent Trailer Reaction

I Cannot wait for the Divergent movie to come out!! In this video you will get to see my FIRST reaction to the new trailer. I love this book so much, and anytime I love a book I get frightened by the thoughts of it turning into a movie. Do you guys share that fear? If you have not read Divergent I HIGHLY recommend it. Divergent is one of my all time favorite books. It has been along time since I have read it, and I am debating on reading it again before the movie comes out. If you want me to read it again and do a review on it just comment down below =)  I hope you guys enjoy this video, and please do not forget to subscribe to the blog AND the YouTube channel as well =)

BOOK HAUL

Hey guys so here is my book haul. You will notice some books in the background that I don't talk about. The reason is, I know I will have to wait to read them and I don't know how long it will be till I do get to read them. I want to wait and read some of them with Chris and since his schedule is so busy I don't know when we will get the chance to read together. I didn't want to talk about them and some viewers get excited and wait on a review when it could take awhile =) Hope you like the haul and my ranting over people talking on cell phone in books stores lol!

Tea Of The Week

"Say Goodnight with Our Bedtime TeaTuck yourself into bed and get a restful nights sleep with a cup of our Bedtime tea. this blend is an effective combination of herbs traditionally used for centuries to promote relaxation and sleep. Valerian and Organic Chamomile can help calm nervousness and restlessness. St. John's Wort is known for its positive effects on mood, while Passion Flower, used in Native American remedies, helps reduce common anxiety to support sleep. Licorice, Cardamom and Cinnamon add a delicious, warming flavor that's just right for drinking before bedtime. So, relax and drink Bedtime tea - for a good night's sleep."

Does this not sound scrumptious? With everything going on the last couple of weeks my sleeping schedule has been awful. I have trouble sleeping and have had to go to the doctor multiple times for it. I refuse to take actual sleeping pills so my doctor and I try to find natural products to help. I drink teas to help promote sleep ofte…
