Day off

This past month has been crazy.

I have been working a full time job, finished school, graduated with an Associates Degree, trying to find where to live when I am going to school in the fall, and trying to brain storm what to write on the blog.

Today is the one day that I have had off and I don't have classes or go to see an apartment. So today I thought that I would just write an updated post letting you know I have not fallen off the face of the Earth.

I do plan on posting a wrap up for April soon so look out for that.

Since I am off of work today and I am not obligated to go any where I am tempted to just sit outside on this beautiful day and read.


Let me know down below what book you are reading down below!

I hope you all have a great day!
Thank you for reading.

Movies of March

So I went a little crazy on the movie watching this past month...

Arrival:
Arrival is about how a linguist, played by Amy Adams, and a scientist, played by Jeremy Renner, come together to figure out what the aliens want when they land on earth.

I love the special effects and the flash backs. This is a movie that makes me want other people to watch it to see how they feel about the movie when it ended.
I questioned if I would have done the same things if I was the main character.
After I finished the movie I immediately called my mother and told her about this.
I want to know if you have watched this what you thought. Would you do the same thing as the Amy Adams character?

Letters To Juliet: This movie is adorable and I think that everyone should sit down and watch it.

Moana: This is a really cute movie. I loved the side characters, Heihei and Pua. The only thing that I wanted different was I wish that their was more of Pua with Moana and Heihei. I understand that two animals is a lot to look after but Pocahontas and Mulan looked after two animals. Other than that I recommend this movie. :)

All of these next movies are ones that I watched on HBO Go. To say that I have become slightly addicted to HBO GO would be an understatement.


The Legend of Tarzan:
The Legend of Tarzan is about how John Clayton, AKA Tarzan, goes back to Africa after being invited. On his journey back he finds out that things are worse off than when he left.

This movie had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I enjoyed the special effects, the plot, the actors who played the roles, everything. I want everyone to watch this.
Even though this is different from the cartoon version, it is still good. I believe in the cartoon version Clayton was the bad guy so that took me by surprise when Tarzan is called John Clayton.

Neighbors 2: I wasn't all that impressed with this movie. I will not be watching it again in the future. This movie is a lot like the first movie. Frat houses, parties, and neighbors trying to get rid of them.

Bridget Jones Baby: This movie, like all the Bridget Jones movies, is hilarious. You need to go watch all three and get back with me so we can talk about these movies! Probably on my top recommended romantic comedies! (One of my favorite parts of the movie is when Bridget and her friend meet Ed Sheeran.)

Embarazados (We Are Pregnant): This was the first movie that I watched that was spoken in another language.  This film is in spanish and I read the English subtitles. It was an interesting experience.
This movie didn't blow me away, it was just okay.

Sydney White: This is a modern day retelling of Snow White. This is exactly what I thought it would be, a cheesy, but cute version of Snow White.


This next one is not a movie, but I started watching The Arrangement this month guys and I am hooked. It is really interesting.
If you have not heard what The Arrangement is about I will give you a brief synopsis.

There is this movie star, Kyle West, who meets this girl on an audition for the movie he is in. They spend like a day together and then he sends over a contract to this girls agent that says that he is offering her a contract marriage. She will get 10 million dollars if she marries this guy for so many years and has kids with him. He is also involved with the group called The Institute Of The Higher Mind which is very creepy and kind of like a cult but the plot, at least in my opinion, is good.

I think I might be forgetting a movie. If I remember one later I will be sure to update you somehow. Maybe on Twitter or Instagram.

Please let me know what movies, if any, you watched this month. I love discussing movies just as much as I do books.

Thanks for reading.
I hope you have a good day/night.

5 Books I Want To Read In 5 Months

I do not stick to the TBRs (to be read list) that I make so I thought that I would give myself five months to read five books.
All of the summaries are short, sweet, and to the point. If you want to know more about the books I will leave links down below to Goodreads.

1. Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kanheman


This book is about how the brain works.

2. Heartless by Marissa Meyer



Heartless is a Queen of Hearts orgin story from Alice in Wonderland.

3. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss



This is about a wizards life and its high fantasy. I don't think that I read any high fantasy books so hopefully I enjoy this. I have heard good things.

4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey



This book is about an alien invasion.

5. The Bees by Laline Paull 



I am not sure what this is about. I just know that the main character is a bee which sounds interesting.

Well those are the five books that I want to read over the next five months.



Let me know in the comments if you have any reading goals for the next five months. Do you make TBRs or are you a mood reader? 

Thank you for reading!
I hope you have a good day.

Saga Series Review (Spoiler Free)


Are you in the mood to read a wonderfully illustrated love story about two people whose homes are at war with each other and they are trying to escape from it all to save themselves and their baby? If you said yes Saga is the series for you!

I really enjoyed this series. I love that as the reader you experience every point of view possible with this series. The reader gets the point of view from the parents, the point of view from the bounty hunters, the point of view from the robots, and it is narrated by their daughter. I don’t think that I have read a series with as many different points of view as this one. Brian K. Vaughan writes the story with such fluidity that it doesn’t seem like an abrupt change in narration when it switches from the many points of view.

I want to encourage those who have not started this series to do so. Just try it. Read the first Volume and I guarantee you will be hooked. You will want more.

I requested the first volume from the library and read it in one sitting. I was so upset when I finished it because I had to request the other volumes and wait for them to come in before I got to find out what happens next.



I am highly anticipating the seventh volume!


The art in these graphic novels is amazing!




I do want to warn you that this series is for mature audiences. If you are not prepared for mature content (sex scenes) do not pick up this series.


If you have read the series let me know what you think in the comments.

Thank you for reading.
I hope you have a great day!
