What I’ve Been Watching Lately

Hi Everyone! I haven’t really been with watching many movies this year. Going to the theater is one of my favorite activities but with a toddler at home it’s hard to get out. The same thing goes for digital releases, it’s so hard to pay attention to a movie. I wanted to share with you everything I’ve been watching lately.

Movies

A Star is Born

This movie was so incredibly beautiful and so so SAD. Lady Gaga is extremely talented, her voice is truly amazing. Bradley Cooper completely amazes me. He directed A Star is Born which was also the first movie that he directed. This movie deals with some hard hitting issues so make sure you check out the content warnings before watching, one of them being alcoholism.

Captain Marvel

This movie was amazing, and an excellent addition to the MCU. Bri Larson is fantastic, I love her with my whole heart and soul! Her acting is exceptional, she really brought the character to life. I loved this movie so much! I’m not going to go into to many details because I have a full review, I have linked it in the title.

Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald

This second installment was a little disappointing. I was hoping it would have been as good as the first one, but the magic was just not there. Of course I loved all the creatures and Newt. But the plot was lacking and I found myself bored at times, don’t get me wrong it was still a good movie but I didn’t love it.

The Perfect Date

This is Netflix newest Original movie, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. This movie stars Noah Centineo, Laura Marano and Camilla Mendes. Noah plays Davis a senior in high school who desperately want to go to Yale, but doesn’t have the fiances. After he gets paid to take a girl (Laura Marano) to a dance at her school, he comes up with an app to go on other dates for pay. This movie was hilarious, I love Noah he’s great as always, he is the perfect cast for Rom-Coms. The real star of the movie though was Laura, she is fantastic and super cute!

TV Shows

Queer Eye Season 3

This show has become one of my all time favorites, I love the positive attitude the guys bring to every situation. I don’t think there has been an episode yet where I haven’t shed a few tears. I love Tan and JVN so much, they have such amazing personalities and I just feel really connected with them. My son Noah who is 12 also loves the show, his favorite being Antoni.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2

Season 2 was a lot darker than its first season, Sabrina is an amazing protagonist with a fierce feminist outlook. She stands up for her fellow witches and fights for opportunities offered to the warlocks. With the help of her friends she might fight the dark lord and the situations they get themselves into. This season had amazing representation, especially with Theo’s story line it was so well done. Also Nick Scratch is freaking amazing and I hope he and Sabrina are endgame!

I have also been watching the new episode’s of Jane the Virgin and absolutely loving them, this show has everything. As of last week Game of thrones has also started, at the end of the season I will have a post about every episode and how I feel about them and the season as a whole, but I’m so freaking excited.


Well that’s all for this post, let me know what movies/Tv Shows you have been loving.

The Risk by Elle Kennedy

Content and trigger warnings: Explicit sex scenes,drug use,alcohol, talk of past miscarrying, and a panic attack.

This book COMPLETELY lived up to all my expectations. Elle Kennedy is my favorite romance author, I do not like sports so for me to love these books says something about her writing. The Risk is the second book in the Briar U series by Elle Kennedy. We first met Brenna in The Chase, when she became close friends with Summer. I’ve been looking forward to Brenna’s book since we first met her, she is fierce,sassy and sexy.

Brenna Jensen:  Daughter of the Briar U hockey coach, her life has always revolved around hockey and she loves the game. That is why she is majoring in sports journalism, and desperately trying to get an internship at HockeyNet.

Jake Connelly: Captain of Harvard’s hockey team, he is in his senior and has already signed on to play for the Oilers, in Edmonton. His main focus in life has always been hockey, the game comes before anything else. But he can’t seem to stay away from Brenna.

While Brenna is at her interview to intern for HockeyNet, the man interviewing her is a total ass and is overlooking her because she is female. He only wants to talk about Jake as he is a huge Oilers fan, in a desperate moment Brenna tells him that Jake is her boyfriend. This is when the story really starts, the banter between Brenna and Jake is smart and witty. Being a part of rival teams they keep there “relationship” a secret from there friends. She is not shy about anything but she does not want to cause any problems with her friends, as Briar U gets ready to play against Harvard.

One of the things I love about this series is the old character’s still make appearances, these friendships mean so much to me. Elle Kennedy also explores how toxic the sports industry can be towards women. The men all look down on Brenna as well as another sports announcer, believing they cant possibly know as much about hockey because there girls.

Another issue that is brought up, is that what happens in our past is not our fault. Brenna went through some traumatic events when she was a teenager and this book explores that we can still feel guilty over events we have no control over.

I actually loved this one more than The Chase. I loved Brenna and Jake together. It was a perfect enemies to lovers romance with a slow burn and plenty of laughs. Elle Kennedy created the perfect chemistry with these two, my only issue with the book was all the obstacles they had to overcome before they actually got together. The third book, The Play has been announced it’s going to be Hunter’s book, and I can’t wait!

#2.) The Mistake ★★★

What I Got My Kids For Easter |2019|

Hey Loves! As I mentioned on my Instagram, I am going to start creating more lifestyle posts. I saw a few people talking about what they got there kids for Easter and I thought that would be a really fun post to write!

Most of these items were bought from the Dollarama or Jean Coutu. I wanted to buy the practical gifts, things that they would be able to use. Of course I had to get Noah some treats, Emmy not so much as she is still to young.

Noah, my 12 year old is starting to become more difficult to shop for as his style and interests are starting to become more his own. In his basket I’ve included Dove Avocado Oil shampoo, he is sensitive to a lot of soaps but Dove is really gentle. I bought him a bamboo toothbrush, I’ve heard a lot of great things about these, so I threw one in there. He’s been asking me for Becky Albertalli new book for some time now, I actually bought this for him a while ago and forgot about it. I also included some bubbles, freezies, goat milk lavender bubble bath and of course some chocolate.

Now, for my 15 month old daughter, she is still young to fully understand what the holiday is about but she still needed to have a little something to celebrate. Miss Emmy will be getting a pair of rubber boots, I had a really hard time finding some in her size. Luckily my mom was able to find a pair for me. Just like Noah I bought her a bamboo toothbrush, as she has so many teeth now. She needed some new bath toys, and she loves the little boats. I ended up re buying them as her old ones were getting a little gross. Emmy got some bubbles too, as well as a bottle of Johnson’s lavender baby wash.

I will be working on Easter Sunday which I’m very sad about but I am off Easter Monday. I’m grateful I will get still get a day to celebrate the holiday together.I hope you all have a Happy Easter !

Aurora Rising by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

Many thanks to Random House Kids for sending me an eARC via NetGalley for my honest review!

I want to start this review by saying that I was very fortunate to have been given a EARC, I swear that my neighbors could hear me cheering. With that said, this book disappointed me so much! I really wanted to love it and I really didn’t like it until the last 30% of the book. I found it to be extremely boring. I loved Jay and Amie’s Illuminae Files and I do enjoy there writing. I just wasn’t connecting with the story.

They are not the heroes we deserve. They are just the ones we could find.

Aurora Rising Follows the story of six legion cadets who make up the squad 312, they are chosen to work together during the draft,which Tyler missed. He was to busy saving a girl from a ship he found floating in the fold. He is one of the top students but he is landed with the misfits of the academy who make up his squad..

Tyler: The Alpha, Squad Leader,Scarlet’s brother and captain “hotness”. The amount of times his dimples or attractiveness was mentioned was absurd.

Aurora: An Asian human girl,who was Cryogenically frozen for the last 200 years and was supposed to wake up on Octavia III. She has some wicked powers but she also has no idea how to control them.

Scarlet: The Face, the diplomat and Tyler’s twin sister.She is described as having fiery red hair and is just as attractive as her brother.

Cat: The Ace, the pilot, has been friends with Tyler and Scarlet since kindergarten. She is a strong woman and takes shit from no one. She is covered in tattoos with a Mohawk and not so secretly in love with Tyler.

Kal: The Tank, Syldrathi, he has darker skin and silver braided hair. The Syldrathi are in the midst of a civil war and also have a war history with the Terran people. This boy is full of rage, but oh can he throw down. He was hands down my favourite character.

FinianThe Gearhead, Tech Division. He is Betraskan, his skin is white.He’s bisexual and has a disability for muscle weakness, nerve damage, impaired mobility. He has to wear a exoskeleton suit to help him with his movements. His character also made this book tolerable, he’s sassy and says inappropriate things at the worst times.

Zila: The Brains, Science Division. She is described as having dark brown skin with curly black hair. She loves to wear hoop earrings and can be a little trigger happy.

The six of us? Against the whole galaxy?

The book is divided up into three different parts, I really struggled with part 1 it was incredibly boring and slow moving.Part 2 took place on the world ship, where the squad was a part of a very drawn out heist. We got a little bit of backstory to some characters,but I still wasn’t vibing with the story. It wasn’t until part three where I found myself actually invested in the plot. It was short lived though because then the book needed, just when things were getting good.

I had a really hard time picking up the book to actually read it. The action scenes were well written but because I didn’t care about the characters I was invested in there well being. Well, I did like Kal and Fin, they were the only characters with some personality.

This book was a huge miss for me, I know there is a lot of high praise already. I know I’ll probably get some hate for this but no one is more disappointed with my feelings than I am. I think this book would have been hugely improved by not having seven different POV, if they stuck with just Tyler and Aurora I think it would have been less confusing. I struggled with remembering who was talking in each chapter.

I ended up giving Aurora Rising 2.5 Stars.

Buddy Read with Amy!

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

I haven’t read to many Christina Lauren books, but these ladies sure can write a good romance. This was such a cute Rom-Com, it will make the perfect summer read. I finished it in two sitting, the pages just flew by.  This book was such a fun ride and has me aching to pick up more books from Christina Lauren.

That’s the point of luck; it happens when and where it happens.

The Unhoneymooners follows Olive Torres as she goes on her twin sister Ami’s honeymoon. During the wedding reception everyone comes down with a bad case of food poisoning, except for Olive and Ethan, Ami’s new husbands brother.Olive and Ethan have hated each other from the moment they met three years ago, now on there siblings honeymoon in Maui they must pretend to be newlyweds. They get into some pretty sticky situations, and soon the fake marriage alerts them to the fake that they have a lot of chemistry. That they may have been wrong in hating each other.

“When I signed up for this honeymoon, I had no idea it would involve so much nudity.”

This book has one a my favorite tropes , Hate to Love  and this book fueled my love for that trope.  Also includes fake dating/fake marriage and a slow burn romance .I was laughing out loud and swooning over Ethan. I was obsessed with there banter, Olive is so sassy and Ethan’s attitude was just to much, I loved them. I really love that Olive is a strong curvy woman who stands up for herself and takes no shit from Ethan. Throughout the story she starts to discover who she really is, and what is important to her. Ethan comes across as a huge jerk at first but honestly that’s what made me love him. As the book progresses we find he is actually really sweet and hilarious.

I had a few issues with the story but those are more personal opinions than the book being bad. I really didn’t like Dane, Olive’s sisters husband, he was honestly the worst! Ethan coming to his defense, I understand where he was coming from but it infuriated me that he was standing up for such a shitty person.

If you’re a fan of rom-coms, and want a funny, cute book, I highly recommend picking this one up. I just loved this so so so so much! Christina Lauren is one  quickly becoming of my favorite authors.

Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

“You can justify anything. If you’re narcissistic enough to believe that the universe conspires for and against you—which we all are, deep down—then you can convince yourself you’re getting signs about anything and everything.”

TW: substance abuse/addiction, abortion

Truly one of the most remarkable stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading .Having read and absolutely LOVED The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo last year I couldn’t wait for Reid’s newest book.I tried to get an ARC but the God’s did not bless me with an opportunity. I have to say the wait was absolutely worth it,I read this book via audiobook and it was fantastic. The book is written in interview format, which worked out so well in audiobook, it’s also a full cast.

Daisy Jones & The Six is about a band formed in the 1970’s. The book is told through interviews with the band members. Our leading lady Daisy is a young beautiful teenager, she desperately wants to be seen. Her parents are never home, and don’t pay her any attention. Daisy becomes a regular at nightclubs and starts getting into being a groupie, witch includes sex, drugs and the Wild life of rock n roll. Daisy gets involved with a musician, he is struggling to write his next song so Daisy ends up writing some lyrics. This man claims them as his own,well this infuriates Daisy and from this point forward she is determined to be a songwriter.

 “I had absolutely no interest in being somebody else’s muse.
I am not a muse.
I am the somebody.

End of fucking story.”

She soon gets involved with this band The Six. It started out as a writing gig with the lead singer Billy but then one night she performed with the band. The fans absolutely adored her and it was decided she would join the band.I was obsessed with this story, I fell really hard for Daisy and needed to know her every move. Daisy was never afraid to be herself and she expressed that at every opportunity. She was raw and emotional. I couldn’t get enough of her. Taylor Jenkins writes beautiful complex characters, to a point that I actually believe they could be real people. This book has a large cast of characters, from the band members to music producers and photographers.

“It was America. It was tits. It was sex. It was drugs. It was summer. It was angst. It was rock ’n’ roll.”

This Book is all about female empowerment, supporting other women and demanding credit where it is due. Carmilla is such a well written character, she loves without asking for anything in return, she’s devoted and not jealous of the women surrounding Billy. Karen she is the only female in the band before Daisy came along, she does not take shot from anyone and stands up for what she believes. I won’t go into what I mean because of spoilers.

Speaking of Billy, he is selfish and stubborn. He is a perfectionist when it comes to his songwriting, when it comes to music he’s the boss or you can find the door and leave. Even during the rough times his love for Carmilla shines through everything he does.

“Art doesn’t owe anything to anyone.”

The atmosphere of the 70’s was captured perfectly. This book does heavily talk about alcohol and drug abuse, because that was a big scene during this time period. I cannot wait for the tv show, to see which actors will play the characters and being able to hear all the songs!

This book has been getting a lot of mixed reviews, a lot of people really don’t like it. For me this is a five star read!

With The Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

I received a copy from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

[Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links which means that if you click on a link and purchase something I’ve talked about or recommended, I’ll receive a very small percentage of the sale. ]

“Sometimes focusing on what you can control is the only way to lessen the pang in your chest when you think about the things you can’t.”

The first time I saw the cover of this book I fell in love, it is so gorgeous!! This book means so much to me! This story was very empowering. Emoni was such a strong character and full of passion. Also the amount of representation in the book was excellent. Emoni is part Puerto-Rican and Black and a  teenage mother, there is also a lesbian side character.

Emoni is told that she has a magic touch when it comes to cooking. She takes a recipe and makes her her own by adding spices she believes will enhance the flavors. I felt such a deep connection to Emoni, she is a badass single teen mom, with a beautiful little girl. Many of you probably don’t know that I had my son Noah when I was 17.  I understand her struggles, she wants to provide for her daughter. To make the right decisions so that there future will be secure. I have never felt such a connection with a character before, I cried so many tears throughout this book.

When Emoni discovers she has a chance to take a culinary cooking class as an elective in school. She cannot decide if it’s the right choice to take the class,they will also be going on a trip to Spain at the end of the semester. She already has to keep up with school work, and she works part time to help cover the cost of the baby, plus actually taking care of the baby. Emoni has a lot on her plate. She dreams of becoming a chef and someday working in a restaurant. This book could have been full of stereotypes about teen mother’s, but it wasn’t. It was a beautiful story, about a girl despite her circumstances goes after her dream. Oh my Goodness, I’m crying again just typing this review.

” I want to be able to take care of my own and the only thing I would want to study is culinary arts, but why try to learn that in a school when I could learn it in a real restaurant where I’m making money instead of spending it?”” 

The side character’s were also an amazing addition to the story, Emoni’s best friend is her rock. She has been there for her all through her pregnancy and remained after the baby was born. She is also a lesbian and has the cutest relationship!

The chapters are also really short which I loved. The start of new sections also has little recopies which I thought was a nice touch.It was next to impossible to put down With the Heat on High.

Overall, I would strongly recommend this book.

 Pre-Order With the Fire on High

April Anticipated Releases of 2019

Hello Bookworms !!! April is a crazy month for new releases, it was really hard to narrow them down, so if I didn’t mention a book your excited for that doesn’t mean it isn’t on my radar, just that I didn’t want this post to go on forever.


 

img_8658The Descendent of the Crane – Joan He
April 2nd 2019

Tyrants cut out hearts. Rulers sacrifice their own.

Princess Hesina of Yan has always been eager to shirk the responsibilities of the crown, dreaming of an unremarkable life. But when her beloved father is found dead, she’s thrust into power, suddenly the queen of a surprisingly unstable kingdom. What’s more, Hesina believes that her father was murdered—and that the killer is someone close to her.

Hesina’s court is packed full of dissemblers and deceivers eager to use the king’s death for political gain, each as plausibly guilty as the next. Her advisers would like her to blame the neighboring kingdom of Kendi’a, whose ruler has been mustering for war. Determined to find her father’s actual killer, Hesina does something desperate: she enlists the aid of a soothsayer—a treasonous act, punishable by
death, since magic was outlawed centuries ago.

Using the information provided by the sooth, and uncertain if she can trust her family, Hesina turns to Akira—a brilliant investigator who’s also a convicted criminal with secrets of his own. With the future of Yan at stake, can Hesina find justice for her father? Or will the cost be too high?


36535913The Devouring Gray – Christine Lynn Herman
April 2nd 2019

On the edge of town a beast haunts the woods, trapped in the Gray, its bonds loosening…

Uprooted from the city, Violet Saunders doesn’t have much hope of fitting in at her new school in Four Paths, a town almost buried in the woodlands of rural New York. The fact that she’s descended from one of the town’s founders doesn’t help much, either—her new neighbours treat her with distant respect, and something very like fear. When she meets Justin, May, Isaac, and Harper, all children of founder families, and sees the otherworldly destruction they can wreak, she starts to wonder if the townsfolk are right to be afraid.

When bodies start to appear in the woods, the locals become downright hostile. Can the teenagers solve the mystery of Four Paths, and their own part in it, before another calamity strikes?


36118682Wicked Saints – Emily A Duncan
April 2nd 2019

A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.

A prince in danger must decide who to trust.

A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.

Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.

In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy..


38101643The Raven’s Tale – Cat Winters
April 16, 2019

Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster family—the wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at the prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Muses are frightful creatures that lead Artists down a path of ruin and disgrace, and no respectable person could possibly understand or accept them. But Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: “Let them see me!”


36511805Serious Moonlight – Jenn Bennett
April 16, 2019

After an awkward first encounter, Birdie and Daniel are forced to work together in a Seattle hotel where a famous author leads a mysterious and secluded life in this romantic contemporary novel from the author of Alex, Approximately.

Mystery-book aficionado Birdie Lindberg has an overactive imagination. Raised in isolation and homeschooled by strict grandparents, she’s cultivated a whimsical fantasy life in which she plays the heroic detective and every stranger is a suspect. But her solitary world expands when she takes a job the summer before college, working the graveyard shift at a historic Seattle hotel.

In her new job, Birdie hopes to blossom from introverted dreamer to brave pioneer, and gregarious Daniel Aoki volunteers to be her guide. The hotel’s charismatic young van driver shares the same nocturnal shift and patronizes the waterfront Moonlight Diner where she waits for the early morning ferry after work. Daniel also shares her appetite for intrigue, and he’s stumbled upon a real-life mystery: a famous reclusive writer—never before seen in public—might be secretly meeting someone at the hotel.

To uncover the writer’s puzzling identity, Birdie must come out of her shell…discovering that most confounding mystery of all may be her growing feelings for the elusive riddle that is Daniel.

March Monthly Wrap Up

It’s that time again, the end of the month and that means I get to talk about all the books I’ve read. I felt a little slumpy that’s why Harry Potter is thrown in there, but I actually managed to read 9 books in March.

Books Read

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Four Dead Queens is a a fantastic fantasy debut. This is a standalone where there are four quadrants and a queen rules each quadrant .This book is set up like a murder mystery— there are so many fantastic twists. I am absolutely blown away by this book. I devoured this book in a few days as I just couldn’t put it down.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

This is my third time reading City of Bones, I have never made it past City of Glass, but 2019 will be the year I finish all of Cassandra Clare’s books. I still really love this first installment to the series. I love Clary and I always have, I cannot wait to see her development as a character, as for Jace I really don’t like him. I continue to find him annoying, and I don’t understand how so many people love him. I’m excited to see where this series goes.

Sorcery of Thorns by Magarete Rogerson

Sorcery of Thorns has been at the top of my list when it comes to 2019 releases. Enchanted of Ravens was one of my favorite books of  .To say I loved this book would not even begin to describe how I felt about it! I really liked  the romance. It was a slow burn romance, which is one of my favorite tropes. The ending was absolutely amazing It had me on the edge of my seat, and I honestly wanted to jump up and down!

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling

I wasn’t planning on reading this book but my library hold for the audiobook came in, and I couldn’t pass that up. I’ve never listened to the audiobooks before, and its such a fun experience I would listen to it before bed, and theirs no pressure because I’ve read them so many times. This is probably my least favorite HP book, there isnt as much action as the first book, and Lockhart really annoys me.

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

The first time I saw the cover of this book I fell in love, it is so gorgeous!! This book means so much to me! This story was very empowering. Emoni was such a strong character and full of passion. Also the amount of representation in the book was excellent. Emoni is part Puerto-Rican and Black and a  teenage mother, there is also a lesbian side character.It was a beautiful story, about a girl despite her circumstances goes after her dream.

The Mermaids Voice Returns in This One by Amanda Lovelace

This is the final poetry collection in a three book series. Amanda has been my favorite poet since her Tumblr days, and I will forever support her. This collection focuses on sexual assault and her healing journey. Her writing is so raw and powerful, you can see she pours her heart and soul into each word.I really loved this collection.

The Risk by Elle Kennedy

Elle Kennedy is the queen of sports romance, and I don’t even like sports haha but I will read every book she writes. There just that good.From the very first page, I was obsessed with the banter between Brenna and Jake.I rated this book 5 stars, and I will have a full review up really soon!

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

I Buddy read this book with Amy and Amber. This book was so good that none of us stuck to the reading schedule, we just needed to know what happened next. I haven’t had much luck with thrillers lately and I’m happy to report that this one was really well done.This book is the very definition of a page-turner, the characters are not always what they seem, there complex and have lots of secrets. That ending though !!

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren 

This was such a cute Rom-Com, it will make the perfect summer read. I finished it in two sitting, the pages just flew by. .I was laughing out loud and swooning over Ethan. I was obsessed with there banter! This book was such a fun ride and has me aching to pick up more books from Christina Lauren.


How was your month of March? What were your favourite reads?
