Black Friday

Happy black Friday! I hope everyone got some good deals today!

I am sorry for being MIA this week. I had tons of goals to read and write on my blog and then I got sick. And after I was doing being sick I got lazy and have done nothing expect shop, eat, wrap presents and play Pokemon. :/

What should you expect from me now? Tomorrow I have a busy day of decorating but I plan on writing my Mockingjay review. I have seen the movie twice now and have a good idea of what I want to tell you guys about it so look forward to that.

Next week I shall be back on my normal schedule of posting everyday expect Sunday’s. You can look forward to at the very least one more book review for this month, my wrap up, my December TBR and a Pokemon omega ruby review.

I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving and a happy shopping on Black Friday! ๐Ÿ˜€

Music Mondays: Bands to be Thankful for.

Thanksgiving is this week and so for this music monday I have made a playlist for a few bands that have impacted my life in a manger way. Now I know that not everyone will love the bands that I love so here is what I want us to do. In the comments send a link of a playlist or a youtube video of your favorite bands that you are thankful for. Music has shaped and changed my life. It has been there for me when I needed someone to listen to, when I needed someone to have the same feelings that I have. I am thankful that this life has so many great bands that not only to help me, but to help others as well.

This is Gospel – Panic! At the Disco
Car Radio-Twenty One Pilots
Centuries – Fall Out Boy
Flaws – Bastille

A Message from District 13

If you are reading this THE MOCKINGJAY LIVES!

No but really if you are reading this that means it is Thursday the 20th and I am to busy to post today. Why? Because after my full day of college I will being heading to din din with my BFF and then we will go to the 8 p.m showing of Mockingjay Part 1 followed by the midnight release of Pokรฉmon and after having shenanigans at my BFF’s house accompanied by alcohol.

As I sit here I have no idea what to say. I thought about making a book review but this week I have drowned in essays and so have not been able to finish the Shatter Me trilogy to give a review nor I have finished Branded which both I am so close to finishing and it kills me not to and have to write icky yucky math essays all freaking night long.

So I decide to share my top 3 books read so far this month.

Coming in at 3 I enjoyed Shatter Me by Tehereh Mafi.

In the 2nd spot is Dark Days by Kate Ormand which you can find a review for here.

And my number 1 book of this month so far is The Young Elites by Marie Lu.

I hope everyone stays safe tonight when going to the release of Mockingjay and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Review: The Invention of Hugo Cabret

This book was huge when I got it. It is over 500 pages but don’t let it scare you! There are beatuiful illustrations in the story which makes up over half the book.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. I did see the movie a long time ago before I read this book and I honestly could not remeber exactly what had happened but after reading the book it acutally made more sense to me.

We follow the mystery of Hugo Cabret, a orphaned boy who fixes clocks in a Paris train station. He is trying to solve the myster of how his father passed when he comes across a mechanical man that his father was fixing up before he passed. Hugo is sure this machine will guide him in the right direction and send him a message from his father. If only he could fix it.

I really enjoyed this story of Hugo. Even though this was a kids book I feel we see Hugo grown in a big way as he tries to figure out the secret of the mechanical man. It was a very fast read and I finished this book in under 2 hours but that doesn’t mean it was a bad book. I loved the way it was written and the way the book was laid out. I can’t wait to read this book to my own kids one day and fill their heads with dreams as big as the moon!
