Reading Slumps and Life Update

Hey friends! I just wanted to hop on here today and say hello. I was doing so well with posting at the beginning of October then I started reading a book I wasn’t feeling. Now I believe I am again in a reading slump. They have been hitting me really hard this year, maybe it’s that my reading taste have changed and I’m not ready to admit that to myself. This year I’ve found myself gravitating more towards romance books when I am primarily a fantasy reader, however looking back I’ve barely read any fantasy books this year, and that makes me so sad.

Another reason for my book slump, since August I’ve been really getting into k-pop specifically BTS. I’ve fallen in so deep with this band, it’s honestly all I can think about. I’ve been really liking them since I started listening to them but I fell in love with them when I watched the Saudi Arabia concert. Man can these boys perform! Seriously this concert was mind glowingly good, Hobi and Jungkook were really coming for me. Of course the others were fantastic too. I really want to write a whole post about my love for them soon.

I’m really bummed out that I wasn’t able to get to the Apple orchard but work schedules kinda messed that up. Fall is my favorite time of year and this year it seems to be falling a little flat. I haven’t really done anything that I normally like to do. However,next weekend I want to carve pumpkins, and I’m taking the kids to a Halloween themed fundraiser and then to the zoo, so I’m hoping that will be a good weekend. Maybe I’ll throw in some horror movies.

My son turned 13 years old on the 18, and it blows my mind how much he’s grown. He’s almost taller than me, not that I’m that tall anyways but still. I’ve also been having a difficult time with him and his behaviour the past few months and I’m not sure how to improve that. I knew moody teenage years were coming but I wasn’t expecting it to hot so hard.

Back to reading, I’ve only read 4 books this month and I might be able to finish the two I’m currently reading but I can’t see it being more than that. Which bums me out because I had a 12 book tbr. I’m trying not to be to hard on myself there’s still two more months left of the year. I have a bunch of Christmas/holidays books I’ve been saving so maybe I’ll start some of those in November.

How do you deal with reading slumps ?

Are You Ready For Sweater Weather? The Autumn Tag

Hello Friends! I hope your all having a wonderful week. Today I am doing an autumn book tag. I’ve been trying to post more consistently and I fell behind a little last week. But this week I’m thriving, I am so happy it’s October. I am out of my reading slump and I feel more like myself.


Rules: Answer the questions, link back to the creator and tag other people! Tag created by Jennily


1. Hot Chocolate – what is your comfort book?

I’m going to sound so basic but, any of the Harry Potter books. When I read these books it feels like coming home, if I’m in a bad mood reading about my favorites always makes me feel comforted and happy.

2. Pumpkin Carving – what is your favorite creative outlet?

I really love my blog, on wordpress. I mostly post about books, but sometimes I get an idea for something non-bookish and it’s great to have a place to post. I also really love Instagram, even though it can be frustrating at times, there are just so many amazing creative people.

3. Falling Leaves – changes that appear bad but you secretly love?

I hate how big my children are getting, but I love watching them grow and discover the world. My son just turned 13 and he already thinks he’s grown up, there’s some challenges for every age but I’m struggling with his attitude lately. However I love how he tries to figure things out for himself. Emmy is almost 2! She is acting so much more like a kid than a baby, it’s incredible.

4. Pumpkin Spiced Latte – something you love that others tend to judge.

I guess I’ll say reading, a lot of people I meet frown upon reading, which I honestly have never understood. Especially if the book has been made into a movie, people will ask why I’m reading the book when I could just watch the movie.

5. Bonfire Night – what makes you explode with joy?

BTS, I just love this band with my whole heart. I haven’t loved a band like this since One Direction. There music makes me so happy and each member is so talented. Especially Hobi! He is a ray of sunshine ☀️

6. Fright Night – favorite scary book or film

My favorite scary movie will forever be Halloween the 1978 version. And if I had to pick a more recent one it would be The Conjuring. My favorite spooky book is The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager.

7. Halloween candy – favorite thing to eat

I really love turkey dinner! It is my absolute favourite meal. I also love cheesecake, pizza and tacos.

8. Scarves – your autumn ‘must have’ accessory

I love me some good boots and flannels, they are an autumn must!

9. Fire – a book or film that burns your soul

A Court of Mist and Fury will forever be my favourite book, I recommend it to everyone. As for a movie, honestly I would have to say the original Halloween, it just has a special place in my heart.

10. Toffee apples – a book or film that seems one thing but really has a different inside

Red white and royal blue- looks like a cute contemporary but it is so much more than that. It’s about acceptance , love and friendship. It is the perfect book.

The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

 I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

I have read two of Ruth Ware’s books previously and I have to say I did not love them. I found them to be just okay, but this book oh boy it hooked me right from the start. This has got to be one of my new favorite thrillers. This book had all the scary and creepy vibes I wanted.

From the very beginning, we are hearing the story of a nanny who has been found guilty of murdering one of the children in her care. She is writing letters to a lawyer she believes will help her case and prove her innocent. She says she was never given a chance by the police to tell them the whole story.  The entire book is her writing Mr. Wexham about the events that took place at the Heatherbrae House.

‘”I didn’t kill that child. Which means someone else did. And they are out there. While I’m in here, rotting.”’

When Rowan stumbles across the ad, it is too good an opportunity to pass up—a live-in nannying post with a generous salary. From the moment Rowan arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is intrigued. It is an old Victorian house in the Scottish highlands, but upgraded to a “smart” home where nearly everything in the house is controlled by an app. I love the idea of the whole house being controlled by technology, it adds so much to the story. And just like Rowan I believe I would have some trouble learning how to use the app properly. This book is so atmospheric,  it has a modern Gothic feel to it. After meeting the children, she quickly realizes that they very much dislike her.

Her first night in the house, Rowan  is woken up in the middle of the night with walking above her, or she thinks walking, but there is no attic above her and she is on the top floor. The nights at the house were my favorite parts! I listened to this book on audio at night  and it was perfect, it definitely creeped out.

I highly recommend this book, and I have high hopes for Ruth Ware in the future, as her writing gets better with each book. One of my favorite thrillers of the year for sure!

September Wrap Up

Hello spooky friends! September has been a whirlwind of a month. Noah started grade 8, I can’t believe in a years time he will be starting high school. It just blows my mind, how much he’s grown. September in my mind is the first month of fall, so I’ve been doing some fall crafts with Emmy. We made some pinecone bird feeders, which was a lot of fun. Emmy very much enjoyed eating the peanut butter. The leaves are starting to change here and I’m living for it. Anyways, it was a really good reading month. In August I was in a bad BTS induced reading slump, and I’m glad to say I read a lot more in September. I’m still wrapped up in BTS content but I was able to read thanks to audiobooks.

Books Read in September

1. Queen takes knight – Joely Sue Burkhart

This is a smutty vampire book and honestly that’s all I needed to know. This was really short only 200 pages, and I was honestly so happy when I found out there are more books in the series. It’s not the greatest book of all time but I really enjoyed it. It follows Shara who is on the run from monsters that killed her parents. One night she is surrounded by the monsters when two giant men show up and fends them off, turns out she is there vampire queen. This book is so steamy and she literally is covered in blood.

2. Pumpkinheads – Rainbow Rowell

This graphic novel is so stinking cute, and it just screams fall vibes. The whole atmosphere of the pumpkin patch was very well done, I wanted to jump in and be a part of it. The art is gorgeous and the story is adorable. Deja and Josiah are great characters, and I loved them so much! If your looking for the perfect book to get you in the autumn feels, then you need to pick this up immediately.

3. A Curse so Dark and Lonely –  Bridgid Kremmerer

A Curse So Dark and Lonely is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast but it is much darker. I’ve seen this book everywhere and I’ve been really intrigued by it, but also intimidated as it’s very large. This book is so good, I flew through it in just two days, and this boy is quite chunky. I loved every moment. Beauty and the Beast if my favorite fairy tale,and I am so in love with this book. 

4.The Raven Boys – Maggie Steivfater

I re read this as an audiobook, which ended up being a bad idea. I often found my mind wandering, it made me so sad. As I loved the book so much when I first read it, this time around I found myself often board. Maybe because I knew what happened or I was coming out if a slump. I did still really love the characters and the whimsical prose.

5. Eclipse – Stephanie Meyer

This of course is the third book in The Twilight series, and it’s also my favorite. There is one scene in this that always gets me, when Jacob is leaving the tent before the fight, every darn time I cry even though I’ve read this book so many times before and know it’s coming, I still cry. I have always been #teamedward, but I also love Jacob and it hits me in the feels. This book in my opinion is the best in the series,

6. The Turn of the Key – Ruth Ware

It’s not secret that Ruth Ware’s books in the past, I’ve rated them all 3 stars. I was never blown away by her writing, but oh boy this book was so good.  I loved it, it freaked me out, gave me chills, I listened to the audiobook at night and I could feel my heart racing. I absolutely loved it and I have really high hoped for her future novels now. This one is about a Nanny who is telling the story from a jail cell, after a child is found dead, this is not a spoiler as it happens in the first chapter. I love the setting, creepy Victorian house, wired as a smart house.It’s fast paced, I read it in two sittings.

7. Someone We Know – Shari Lapena

There inst to much to say about this book other than I enjoyed it, and it was entertaining. I listened to it on audio in two sittings. This book takes place in a quiet subdivision where everyone knows everyone, there has been a string of break-ins. A teenager boy  has been sneaking into houses and hacking into personal computers.A woman down the street reported missing by her husband is later found dead. The book follows the lives of the people in the subdivision, a lot of secrets are discovered as the police investigate the death.

8.To Drink Coffee with a ghost – Amanda Lovelace

Amanda is the Queen of modern poetry! If you haven’t read any of her previous collection I highly recommend you read them all. She writes with such magic, that you can feel every emotion shes poured into her words. I have been following Amanda well before she wrote The Princess Saves Herself in this One and with every new book I fall more in love with her writing.  This collection really touched me, right off the bat I was crying. The poems are powerful and raw, about her complicated relationship with her mother. I really love the artwork scattered throughout the collection,it adds a wonderful touch.There is a series of trigger warning that are provided by Amanda at the beginning of the book, I will share them down below. I adored this collection, so sit down with a cup of hot coffee and read this masterpiece of a book!

Content warnings: (provided by author) child abuse, eating disorders, sexual assault, self-harm, violence, cheating, death, gore, blood, trauma, grief.

9. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince- J.K Rowling

This is my least favorite of the books in the series, don’t get me wrong I still really love this book, but some of the content was not the best. This book is the turning point to the darkest side to Harry Potter’s world. This book picks up right after the events of Goblet of Fire, Harry just narrowly escapes death by Voldermort. The ministry is making him out to look like a fool, and the community believes that he is lying. Returning to school, the Ministry has appointed Dolores Umbridge to teach defense against the dark arts she is an absolute terror of a woman. This is an emotional book for Harry and you can really see how unhappy he is in this year,he is frustrated and angry. Yet he wants to do well in his classes as this is the year they must take the O.W.L’s. WE get to meet a handful of new characters in this novel, such as Luna Lovegood, I adore her! As well as many others; Sirius plays a big role in this book and the movies really did not do him justice.

10. No Exit – Taylor Adams

 I was in a huge thriller mood, I still am, so I decided to pick up No Exit. This was not at all what I expected when I started this book.The story follows a college art student named Darby who gets caught in s blizzard on her way him to see her mother in the hospital at Christmas. She gets stuck at a rest stop, where she finds a little girl locked in s cage in the back of a truck. Meanwhile the kid appears are inside the rest stop. What I really enjoyed while reading this was its cinematic quality. This would make an incredible movie! The amount of pain and torture shocked me, I really wasn’t expecting it at all. However I’m a wired twisted person and I loved all it.

11. Truly Devious- Maureen Johnson

I’m honestly so mad about this book. Because I expected to enjoy this so so much. All my favorite Reviewers seemed to have loved it, but I found the story to be just okay. Maybe it’s because I read a lot of messed up adult thrillers that this book left me underwhelmed.I love the concept of this book, with the murders and the academy. But the execution is disappointing.

Tv Shows Watched in September

Gilmore Girls- Seasons 1,2,3

The Politician Season 1

Right off the bat it has checked all my boxes: a warning at the beginning about mental health, an amazing cast! I really just watched the entire first season of The Politician in two days. DAY. I NEED s2 immediately. Ben Platt is incredible; I love his voice and they included an original song. Jessica Lange is actually an icon. She’s literally the baddest bitch ever!!! Is there a role she can’t do.

Albums on Repeat

BTS: Perona, BTS: Love Yourself: Tear

Not an album but I must have listened to Chicken Noodle Soup -J-Hope and Becky G at least 50 times. Becky G & Hoseok was the perfect collab! I I love this song. Hoseok looks so good in this video, overall look but his dancing was just amazing as usual! But i felt the dancing in the MV was even more special to him & he just rocked it out with all he had.He’s just doing what he loves and he shines so bright, he’s so talented so charismatic.

By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players.

Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent along with six other girls, Celine quickly becomes enamored with the vibrant city from the music to the food to the soirées and—especially—to the danger. She soon becomes embroiled in the city’s glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group’s leader, the enigmatic Sébastien Saint Germain. When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in the lair of La Cour des Lions, Celine battles her attraction to him and suspicions about Sébastien’s guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret.

When more bodies are discovered, each crime more gruesome than the last, Celine and New Orleans become gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose—one Celine is sure has set her in his sights . . . and who may even be the young man who has stolen her heart. As the murders continue to go unsolved, Celine takes matters into her own hands and soon uncovers something even more shocking: an age-old feud from the darkest creatures of the underworld reveals a truth about Celine she always suspected simmered just beneath the surface.

My Top Ten Office Episodes

Hello Friends! I’m a little late posting this, so I apologize. I’m here today to talk about one of my favorite shows, The Office. I’m going to warn you now this post will contain major spoilers so do not read if you haven’t seen the show yet. And if you haven’t watched it then go do it, right now!

To start off I’ll give a little summary, The Office follows the employees of Dunder Mifflin paper constant in Scranton. My favorite characters include Micheal,Dwight,Pam and Jim so of course most of my favorite episodes will be centered around them. Pam Beesly is honestly the most realistic character ever written and when people say they dislike her I feel personally attacked.

I’m a sucker for tv couples that start off as friends and fall in love. That’s my favorite ship, it’s slow burn but you get to see there relationship developed naturally overtime and it is just the sweetest. Also Dwight is more soft hearted then he is given credit for and I will fight you to defend him. Okay now with that all out of the way, let me tell you my favorite episodes.


10.The Dundies -Season 2, Episode 1 

This was the episode that really got me into the show.Before ever watching The Office I really disliked Steve Carell as an actor but Micheal Scott quickly became my favorite character. He is so over the top, but he also cares deeply for his staff. This episode takes place at a child’s restaurant where the annual Dundee’s are being held, these are awards Micheal hands out, such as hottest in the office etc. It’s such a funny episode, Pam who had never won before, spends all night drinking margaritas in anticipation of losing again. But this year she wins! I love Pam, she is so sweet.

9.Beach Games -Season 3, Episode 22

In this episode Michael, is taking the group to the beach for a survivor like competition. He’s recently been interviewed for a job at cooperate and believes he will get it. So in order to find a replacement manager he gets everyone to do a series of tasks and the winner will be the new manager. Dwight and Angela come up with a plan to sabotage Andy, leaving him to float up the river in a sumo suit. While, Pam is forced to sit on the sidelines and take notes on the participants. This is such a great episode, I love when Micheal has crazy ideas.

8. Fun Run – Season 4, Episode 1

Micheal accidentally hits Meredith with his car, he demands to take her to the hospital. Once there it is discovered that she has rabies. In his attempts to make amends with her, he sponsors a fun fun to raise money for rabies. Also Angela is mad at Dwight because she believes he killed her cat sprinkles. When I think of the office this is one of the episodes that always comes to mind.

7. Money season 4 episode 4

In this episode Jim and Pam discover Dwight is running a bed and breakfast at Schrute farm. They book a room for the night, they engage in a series of activities including Dwight reading a passage from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire they return to there rooms for the night. They are awoken by some strange noises coming from down the hall. Meanwhile Michael is working as a telemarketer to make some extra income to pay off his debt. I love this episode so much, Dwight is one of my favorite characters, ever, so any episode with him is okay with me.

6. The fire season 2 episode 4

This is a fantastic episode, Michael takes it upon himself to teach Ryan about business. Soon into the episode the fire alarm goes off and everyone needs to evacuate the building. Dwight and Angela take charge of the evacuation as Micheal pushes people of of the way in order to get out himself. Once in the parking lot Michael continues to hang out with Ryan, causing Dwight to become jealous.

5. Product Recall -Season 3, Episode 21

I seriously love this episode, Jim shows up at work dressed exactly like Dwight. No matter how many times I see this episode I laugh every time. Dwight isn’t impressed, so later on in the episode he shows up dressed like Jim. Who laughs it off. Again these two characters together are so funny!

4.Goodbye Michael -Season 7, Episode 20

Micheal has been telling everyone it is his second last day at the company when in fact it is his last. As the day progresses he tries to have individual goodbyes with each employee Throughout the day Micheal hopes to see Pam, who is running errands outside the office. Dwight is bitter about the fact he wasn’t recommended for manger and gives Micheal a hard time, but Micheal gives him a card challenging him to a game of paintball. Jim figures it out and they have a ready goodbye. The real tear jerker is when Micheal sees Pam at the airport. Even describing this episode is making me ready eyed.

3.Business school -season 3 episode 17

Ryan invites Micheal to speak at his business school, leaving Dwight in charge. While Micheal is gone, a bat is discovered in the ceiling. Instead of calling animal control Dwight takes it upon himself to capture it. He finally manages to trap it with a garbage bag, when it lands on Meredith’s head. Micheal gets into a heated argument with a student, about the paper company becoming obsolete and starts ripping pages out of the textbook. He blames Ryan for the mess and to punish him makes him sit at Kelly’s desk.

2.Niagara -Season 6 Episode 4/5

This is a two part episode, to celebrate Jim and Pam’s Wedding. The group all head to Niagara, once there Micheal and Dwight go on a search for women to hook up with. While Andy tries to peruse Erin.Pam is pregnant and is bidding it from everyone until after the wedding, however during a toast Jim slips up. Now her grandmother is refusing to come. Micheal sees how upset Pam is and takes it upon him self to convince grandma to come to the wedding. During the wedding ceremony the group breaks out in a flash mob, this is one of my favorite scenes in the whole show. Jim and Pam react with humor, as they have already been married alone on the ferry under the falls. I tear up during this episode too.

1.Stress Relief – Season 5, Episodes 15 and 16

Okay time for my favorite episode. Dwight stages a fire to test the office on there fire safety . Things start to go very wrong and they cannot get out, then Stanley has a heart attack. Once he is released Micheal sets up a CPR training class for the group. I work in healthcare and have gone to many of these training classes, actually I just went last week. Dwight of course has to take everything to the next level asking about organ harvesting. He pulls out a hunting knife and cuts off the dummy’s face and wear it as his own. Now every time I’m in one of these classes, I crack up when they pull out the dummy because this episode is all I can picture.
