Once again we seem to be having a horrible news week. From the Parsons Green tube bombing, to the devastation from Hurricane Maria, and Mexico’s second earthquake in two weeks, which has killed hundreds of people including children. There’s Mr. Trump’s threat in front of the General Assembly of the UN to completely destroy North Korea. And finally, the continued ethnic cleansing of the Rohingyas a group of minority Muslims, by the government of Myanmar. To say that I’m saddened, angry and frustrated is an understatement and as always, my thoughts and prayers are with everyone who’s been affected.

I thought we could all use a bit of a break, so I hope the following give you a respite and maybe even a laugh or two.

*Bookish Shenanigans*

Just sharing some book love💖📚🤗😗! I hope everyone has a great weekend! I love all your faces and hope you find a great book to put your face in! What book(s) are you currently enjoying? I am reading The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware currently and really enjoy the modernized whodunit! I’ve also unfortunately been battling some pretty wicked depression lately so am reading Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson! Love both books so far! Furiously Happy has me cracking up from page one! So share with me what you guys are reading! I love recommendations and hearing about current reads!!!

*Review: Time Wasters, Book 1, Super Short Preludes by Didi Oviatt*

Hello lovelies! I got this book on my kindle because I’ve read two books recently of Didi Oviatt‘s and fell in love with her writing. I also love novellas and short stories from time to time. I love the thrill of hitting it and quitting it!😉 I’m glad I downloaded more of Didi’s work!

This book is compiled of three short stories: Love or Low Places, Sabatoge by Hook & Dog and Trampling Beast. These short stories are based off real life events and are made for when your looking for something to fit in to fulfill some time and read a good little story.

I give Didi 5 out of 5 stars for these stories. I really devoured these short stories and felt like I could connect with the characters even for the short time we spent together. I’ve had similar experiences and fears as the characters so I could relate. I just generally love how this author writes. She has become one of my favorite authors. I also enjoy her blog! I recommend this book if you enjoy short and sweet little stories! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Every book you pick up has its own lesson or lessons, and quite often the bad books have more to teach than the good ones.


I was built with a love of the night and the unquiet coffin, that’s all.

Stephen King, On Writing: Memoir of the Craft


The glory of a good tale is that it is limitless and fluid; a good tale belongs to each reader in its own particular way.

*Lesbian Girlfriend Debates*

Hey lovelies!!!! So today I asked my girlfriend to go to the corner store and buy me some boiled peanuts. This turns into a debate that she says I can’t say boiled peanuts right and I think she can’t hear! We even go into the hooked on phonics discussion. So please guys give us your feedback Peanuts vs Penis?! I need to know if shes right I’ve been saying penis too many times to random people. Thanks for watching!!!

P.S. Excuse my hair and all I know I look like a hot mess. Lol.
