More Books

Posted in Book Reviews with tags , on 10/22/2018 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

So I have been reading a shitload of books, but they have been on my kindle or my kindle app on my phone. What I think I will do is just go ahead and write a quick blog about the books that I have read and then when I get the book do a video on it.

Now I am not good on doing these in-depth readings and deep analyzing of the books that I read. I just pretty much share how I feel about the book. SO I will try to get a review out once a week or so. No promises though lol.

Not pretty bad huh? I had a really good time reading these books, they took my out my comfort zone and had me crying and feeling all types of emotions. I swear these books I picked out the blue where amazing.

I am going to make sure that I do small challenges like this more often, it gives me a fresh of breath air and allows me to expand my horizon. I am proud of myself 🙂

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

In addition to my occult reads I do have a wide array of other genres that I read.

This is part of the contemporary read-a-thon for the week. This book is 3 of 7 that I have read. The other 2 will be posted on my Goodreads.

This book is about a 16 year old girl (guessing her age, maybe 17) that has a serious mental illness. It follows her thoughts and how she interacts with her family and friends, the anxiety that she deals with through out her days. A boy from her past that has shown her so much, and it is a tear jerker.

I shed some tears at the end of the book, and I really felt and wanted to see more of the characters, like how has their life changed after this set of occurrences. It was a really good book. I borrowed it from my library, but now I have to purchase it.

I like his writing style, and how you empathize with the characters. I think this author will be on my radar. I really want to see what else he has written.

This past month I have been dropping a book review video every day of the month, and I have a few more to do. Here is the latest video so you can backtrack :Occult reference books.

What I do and have noticed actually, is that people read the same fucking books and they read them because everyone else does, but never did shit with the book. At least I went through majority of my books or have them scheduled to be performed in the next few months.

I will keep up with the book review videos since I got some many down this month. I have read majority of these books years ago, and I have so many that I want to get up and out. Even moving into the next month I will be dropping more videos maybe 2 times a week.

All in all, I really hate that phrase lol, I am feeling good in sharing the books that  I love and like with others. I tend to keep it pretty true to form with my colorful language in tack lol. I mean I really am not changing for anyone. I share what I love with people who want to listen, can’t get any better than that.

Read Books Update

So far I have read 5 Occult books. Not very happy about that. I am just not happy at that total at all. But I have 6 months to change it around and really knock out my Occult TBR list. So I have read 19 books total out of my Goodreads challenge of 52. I know that I will actually finish all 52 this year, but next year I have a better handle and idea on what I will be reading and keeping on track.

I will be getting audio book finally this year, so I can really get some books in. I really look forward to knocking out some books that I have always wanted to read. I will have reviews up on the following books on my YouTube Channel (Keona Esh). There are two that are already on the channel.

Walking the Twilight Path A Gothic Book of the Dead by Michelle Belanger

Magical States of Consciousness: Pathworking on the Tree of Life by Melita Denning

Karma-Yoga & Bhakti-Yoga by Swami Vivekananda

 

This month I will read 3-5 Occult books. They are the ones I want to knock out the most. Mainly because I told myself I will not buy any more books until I read the ones I have. Which I know is a lie lol. There a few new occult books that have came out that I will get lol. So there goes that promise.
