Love, Life and the List Book Review
Love, Life, and the List - Kasie West

Cute, fluffy but very predictable. I really enjoyed this. Its a typical YA fluff but I knew that going in. Its the whole best friend loves each other type story---but I am a total sucker for those. Kasie West seems to be hit or miss for me. I either love or hate her books. So I'm really happy that I enjoyed this one since I was definitely looking forward to it.

Facts About Me: Photography

I used to be a really keen photographer, and, if I say so myself, I was pretty good at it. But, over the years, I began having trouble getting decent pictures. I have a nerve condition that makes it hard for me to hold a camera still, plus a balance problem that means I often sway when standing still, so the combination really makes getting pictures nearly impossible.

 

However, I do love some of the old pictures I took, when I was able to, so I thought I'd share some of my favourites. I still try, now and then, to get a good picture when I'm having a good day, but none of them come out as well as these lot did.

Galentine's Day with my Favorite Heroines | Top Ten Tuesday

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a list-based meme hosted by the amazing Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. If the meme sounds familiar, it was formerly hosted by The Broke and Bookish.


Happy Galentine's Day!  Since I am a rebel (and by that I mean single and slightly bitter), my Top Ten Tuesday is not going to focus on love and other sappy stuff as it was supposed to. Instead I am going to celebrate a much more important holiday, Galentine's Day.


For those who have not had the enlightening experience of watching Leslie Knope celebrate this holiday on Parks and Recreation, let me educate you. The day before the mushy gushy holiday on February 14 is dedicated to the power of female friendship and the awesomeness that is being a woman, regardless of whether or not you have a significant other. Galentine's Day is about girl-power and self-love, not about crying while watching The Notebook with a pint of Ben and Jerry's as your only companion.


To celebrate this wonderful day, I am sharing with you some of my favorite, kick-butt heroines from YA lit.

Review: The Englisher
The Englisher - Beverly Lewis

The Englisher appear the focus of this story or mostly part of the story. Beverly does do this gradually. Annie Zook has some struggles to keep the promises that she made with her father who by the way is the preachers.

 

We go through the struggles with Annie. There another struggle that going on as well. Zeke is struggling with something and it does take the whole book to figure it out. There are surprises and twists throughout the book.

 

Ben Martin as come to Amish county and has his own secrets. He comes to work in the tack shop. He keeps his secret of what brought him there. He seems to run into Annie. Lou had come and is staying with her pen pal Annie. Lou is embracing the Amish and their ways. Will Lou be back or will she leave.

Facts About Me: Lifetime Bucket List

 

So, we all have one. A list of stuff we want to do in our lives. A list of places we'd like to go. A list of things we'd like to learn how to do. It's good to have goals and aim for something, even if it feels unrealistic at the time you want it. Here's my list of "one day" things I'd like to do and places I'd like to go.

 

* Go to Egypt. It's been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.

 

* Have one of my books made into a TV show/movie. Because, really, it's the dream of every author. It had to be on here.

 

* I'd love to attend a Comic Con one day. For the geek in me, that would be heaven.

 

* I'd love to be healthy and fit enough to do a bit of travelling. Nothing as extravagant as Egypt, at first, but something like going around Europe. I've been to Spain, cutting through France and England, but I'd love to go to Italy one day and maybe go back to all the places I've been before, to really do the 'tourist' thing. Then maybe America.

 

* I would love to do a book signing at a proper Book Con. Right now, that's not medically or financially possible, but it would be the dream. To do one, at least, but maybe even to do a few of them and really get to meet my readers and other authors.

 

* It might sound silly, but I'd also love to catch up on my TBR list. It's ridiculously long. Maybe if I won a ridiculous amount on the lottery I could kick back in some sunshine place, feet up, food and drink prepared and delivered to me, with nothing to do but read and enjoy myself. That would be idyllic.

 

* I want a library. A real one. Like...Beauty and the Beast real. For all those TBR books that I'll be working my way through when I'm super-rich.

 

* Something logically achievable → I'd love to learn to cook. I watch Food Network like an addict, but I can't cook to save myself. Or feed myself. It's shocking and I'd love to fix that.

 

* I want to go to a concert. I've only ever been to one and it wasn't my choice. I went with my sister to a Boyzone concert and was the only one who knew the opening act! I'd love to go see someone of my choosing, without worrying about how to get there, how to pay for it and whether I had an escape route if I wasn't feeling well. Being disabled sucks when it comes to big venues, but other people can do it and I want to...eventually.

 

* Of course, I'd love to hit #1 on Amazon at some point. Not just as a 'free' price, which I've done, but at full cost and maybe even making it into the harder spots of NYTimes and such. That would be a dream come true!
