Currently Reading... and reading, and reading...

Books are my escapism. I love them. They are life. Except...

 

 

I've been currently reading the same book for what feels like ages, well for the whole of December, so really only a couple weeks. It isn't as if I don't like the book. I have no idea why I procrastinate something I love so much! I go through spurts of reading 20+ books in a month, and then reading like 2 and sometimes nothing at all!

 

I recently found out some of my "quirks" come down to autism. Shocker. 33 and I'm only now finding out who I really am, or at least understanding more why I do things the way I do them. The more correct term would be ASD or Asperger Syndrome Disorder.

 

People can call me a special snowflake all they want. I finally have a term, or label (if you will) that helps me understand my head a little better. I did not get it officially told to me by a doctor, either.

 

First I got advice from a friend who has it and she gently told me to look more into it, because apparently aspies are really good at recognizing each other. What she did not know was that I had already been wondering about it and when she gave me this long message talking about her experiences and relating them to what she has seen me do, I just couldn't control the melt down I had while reading it.

 

Like I feel ashamed and broken, but rationally, I know there is nothing to be ashamed of and I'm not broken. It is just another part of me. One that 90% of people won't take seriously because I'm a grown woman, and I didn't get a "Doctor's Note."

 

This hardly has anything to do with books. I was wondering if non bookish blogs are fine, considering this blog site is called "booklikes"

 

Anyone else share non bookish stuff? Is that frowned on here? I sometimes have things I want to blurt to people and nobody to blurt them to.

 

Oh, I wanted to share my current saving grace is the La La Land soundtrack. I put that music on full blast when I am having "moments" where I want to ignore the world. Go see the movie and make the music your life!! All music is my saving grace, but I really love this soundtrack. I'm really into the music I grew up with, the 90s/early 00s, plus a few more modern things. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that some people are calling the 90s the oldies now.

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season!

I love cruise ship stories...
Cruising - Cate Ashwood

Ok so this is new to me but apparently I love stories that are set on cruise ships because I seem to have a hard time saying no to them and in this case I didn't even try. 

 

So we've got a cruise ship heading for Alaska, best friend's Dylan and Jake...inseparable since college. Each having a secret...basically the same secret and boys and girls this is all wrapped up in that pretty ribbon marked 'FREE'. 

 

So in summary a friends to lovers story set on a cruise ship heading for Alaska and if you're a fan of Cate Ashwood you can grab a free copy of this to read and if you just haven't gotten around to reading this author...what are you waiting for this is the perfect time to check out a new author.

 

This was actually my second time with a story by this author and while the first time didn't go so well...this time was much more enjoyable. 'Cruising' is a short, sweet friends to lovers story without an real angst or over the top drama.

 

Dylan and Jake have been close friends since college and are nearly inseparable. Dylan and Jake head over heels in love with each other, but neither man is quite certain how to tell the other so when Jake unexpectedly 'wins' an Alaskan cruise he sees it as his chance to put his feelings out there and hopefully move their friendship in a more intimate direction. 

 

At less than 50 pages this is a short read but it's also a cute, sweet story. I found myself easily becoming enamored with both Dylan and Jake as they stumbled through their awkward efforts to put their feelings out there and still keep their friendship intact. I enjoyed this one and while the story felt complete I'd happily read more about these two men as they settle into a life together  because in case I forgot the mention it...it's a good thing these guys are surrounded by water because they're pretty hot together. 

 

If you're looking to check out a new author or just wanting to read a short, cute story I definitely recommend this one. Like I said it's short, cute and free and if you need a break from the holiday stories.

A copy of 'Cruising' was graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

A Poetry Kind of Day

It has been a long time since I have been able to write poetry. It is an art form I don't always understand. I like to read it, but it is usually hit and miss whether I like it or not. So I've been going through stuff, so I wrote some poems recently. I'm sharing them with you.

 

---

 

Agonizing, Torment, Panic

All this because the Internet went out

Bored, Lonely, Sad

All this because the Internet went out

What to do, What to do?

Why are we stuck in an age

where Wi-Fi breathes us life

defines us, controls us?

The minute it goes

we freeze and

forget how to live.

 

design, desk, display

 

---

 

too much

suffocating, surrounding,

desire owning, having

overwhelming, intoxicating

 

unable to toss it away

too many leftovers of a past

unwanted memories of a life

 

struggling

let it go, go, go

get away

 

usefulness

dried up, gone

not needed

 

trash it, give it, clean it up

 

not only physical,

in the mind

as well

 

memories with people

not things

 

go ahead

take pictures

take videos

 

try

device down

once in a while

 

enjoy moment

record everything

forget to

really live it

 

pictures and video

are things too

stock photo, broken, glass, clean, mess, stock, broken-glass, clean-up, dust-pan, minimalism, excuse-our-mess

 

 ---

 

music, loud, love

headphones, my friend,

savior, comfort me

thank you

 

scary, too crazy

ouch, pain

people

hide, be quiet,

shh

 

better to, like to,

want to, hate to

ignore the world

 

confusing, conflicting

wants, desires

 

Woman with headphones listening music
