Some people don't really know how to take me, depending on my mood depends on how I react to things, in general, I'm pretty sarcastic, it's not often I'm emotional, it annoys me in all honesty. I read pretty much every day I squeeze it in between doing homework, cleaning and sorting the things at home. It's my hidey-hole, my refuge, my escape from the droll reality that a never ending routine sometimes gets you into, it lets me escape for an hour or so into many fantastic worlds and experience things I can only dream of. ♥ I'm free-spirited, an open-minded thinker who thrives to, be a nonconformist. So don't judge me for choosing happiness. I have an old soul and a different perspective on most things. If I get free time, I like to read and go for random outdoor activities! I like to write short stories, poetry, draw, paint, and just create stuff. I'm such a free spirited person. I will never change who I am. Only become better. Double Major in Criminal Justice: Crime Scene Investigation and Early Childhood Education With a Minor in Psychology. With these degrees, I’ll become a youth counselor, child care worker, and a CSI. I love solving crimes and mysteries, the only thing that would get me is the death of the person and the plot twist. I am interested in the mind, and I'd be so good at helping kids find their paths and realize their worth. I want to help and love what I do. I just want a career where I can help people. I'm also getting a Certificate in Event Planning. ~• Slim. ♥

Description:

In Catalyst, the follow-up to November Ellison’s breakout novel, Beacon, Pastor Jo Benally struggles to cope with the realization that the innocent are not immune to the evils of the world. Chloe, a child in her congregation, can see vampires, and Jo decides to take on the role of protector for the girl, moving with Chloe’s family to Virginia.

But Jo’s presence may be more of a liability than an asset. Contrary to their solitary nature, vampires begin to congregate around Jo, whose powers as a Beacon are growing by the day. Realizing she facilitates love and lustful inclinations in those around her, Jo finds herself at the crux of an undead love triangle.

Making matters much more complicated, the murderous, immoral agency Jo worked for before turning to God reinserts itself into her life. RAND seeks to understand—and wield—the power of vampirism as a weapon. RAND must be stopped.

As matters come to a head, Jo suddenly understands her purpose in this bloody, dark, and violent world. Assuming the role of protector once again, Jo defends the vampires from RAND and teaches them to use their powers for good.

But will it be enough to save them?

Book Review:

This book was good, omg, yes, love the story. Now, this is one of those books, that I been wanting to read but never gotten around to actually getting the book and reading it. And now, finally gotten that chance, may I say I am not disappointed. I cannot wait to read part 2 don’t know when but I will.

Definitely, an enjoyable read, funny how people assume that someone who’s not popular or a nerd cannot get someone who’s out of their league or someone who’s popular and not of their caliber. I am glad that Roman aka Romeo, didn’t care what anyone thinks.

But may I say this reminds me of the book I love I mean movie I love so much with the awkward nerd girl “another teenage movie” I think that’s the name, where the girl changes her appearance. Ha funny how it does that with someone who is not popular and wear glasses and nerdy.

May say I can relate to that because how I use to dress and stuff back when I was a teenager and in my early 20s so I can understand how Rimmel felt.

Great book though! #TeamRomMelli

Book Review:

Spoilers *****

Ha, Karmas is definitely a mother chicken hen. She thought sure she was going to get Marcus back, it’s funny how people don’t realize a good thing until it’s gone, and that person has moved on to the next person who loves them, and they love them back. Reminds of what my sister had mentioned to me about a lady she knew has cheated on her man (her husband) and left him for another man,, and now she regrets it, and wants him back. Funny people want you back, and when Marcus asked Melissa to marry him in front of Sasha, I had to laugh that mess was hilarious as it comes wow.

Book Description: 

Is it a sin to let a good man get away?

The wedding between Angela Gabriel and Brent Underwood promises to be the Birmingham event of the year–and aspiring event planner Melissa Anderson has been working feverishly to make it happen. During this hectic time, she even agrees to go out on a date with a most unlikely prospect: Marcus Peeples. When it came to Marcus, it definitely didn’t love at first sight. But after a lovely evening together of Bible study at Followers of Jesus Faith Worship Center, Melissa has a change of heart. She learns that Marcus is divorced, a fact she can’t reconcile with scripture even though she knows he’s a good man and father. But when Marcus’s diva ex-wife decides she wants him back, Melissa soon discovers love, divorce, and faith have quite a bit in common.

Book Review: 

Hoodlum 2 (Good Book) Wasn’t disappointed I need a part 3 

Hoodlum 2: Spoilers

Bruh, this book was really good, and now I see how Tech died and the reason behind it, but I am wondering why? I do know I wanted to know did he know who he was robbing though? And I also knew something was up Sikes I’m lying lol but man, I thought Monae and Shai were getting somewhere fooled me lol. But I am also itching for Shai to find out about Honey and Brunco or whatever how you spell his name. And war is definitely at its high with Clark’s family. It’s going to get a juicer, and I am itching for more omg.

Also, something is up with Shai sister boyfriend Snake, I kept saying to myself they have to watch that fool, and his sister is hard headed something going to happen, and I feel it and dude are stirring her in the wrong direction. But I do wish Swann, tell Shai about Honey and Brunso foreal because I know they smash, and she is feeling him, he be around her more than Shai is and that is not good at all.

In my mind, I am like is that even Shai baby hmmm hmmm. Man, though I just hope that part 3 will not be coming out so late because I am itching for more.

Book Description:

Justine is a public school teacher who is just barely able to afford rent in New York City. When she returns to the suburbs for her mother’s wedding, she meets a man in a bar and they bond. Although she doesn’t usually go home with men she’s just met, something about this one is different. They share the best night of sex that Justine has ever experienced – a night she hopes to remember for the rest of her life.

It doesn’t take long for her to learn, however, that the hot stranger is none other than the wealthy son of her mom’s new husband – making him Justine’s new (hot and wealthy) step-brother.

In this short story featuring a step-brother romance, Justine must decide whether her happiness is worth navigating the forbidden nature of their relationship. Can she overcome her reservations about his lavish lifestyle and their status as step-siblings? Or will she resist his temptations and suffer the loneliness of her moral high ground?

Book Review

Spoilers? Not really, since I really didn’t say much! Lol!

On the Fence, was a really good book, I should’ve been read this book. I couldn’t stop listening to it once I started on it. Charlie, and Braden, I knew they were going to end up together close or at the end. That’s how most stories end.

Also, the narrator did a good job when she was talking as both male and female.
Book Description: 
For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows—including her longtime neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn’t know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and BeDazzlers. Even stranger, she’s spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.

To cope with the stress of faking her way through this new reality, Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with Braden by the fence that separates them. But their Fence Chats can’t solve Charlie’s biggest problem: she’s falling for Braden. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.
