Posted in Important Posts with tags , , , , on 09/17/2018 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

So I was watching a few booktubers and this challenge popped up. So I was like, hmmmm, let’s see if this can be something that can be done.

So I decided to go ahead and talk a stab at it. I will post the YT videos that I got it from and then you can go from there.

and this one

So I will go ahead and write down the challenge and the books I intend to read.

A book with an orange cover Turtles all the way down by John Green

A dark/taboo.spooky book Whisper me this by Anne King

A diverse book When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon 

Reading a book in an unconventional way (I choose audbile) X-Files Cold Cases by Joe Harris

A book that includes your initials on the cover I’ll be your blue sky by Marsa De Los Santos

A new to me author (and honestly contemporary is all freaking new to me) Ghosted by Rosie Walsh

5 star prediction Little fires everywhere by Celeste Ng

I have of course the audio book and Whisper me this on Kindle. So I will start with those first. I have 3 books on hold at the library and waiting to pick them up in a couple of days and I think I will by Ghost this week.

So we will see how well I do in my first read-a-thon. I am glad it is only a week. I thin kI can do those with no problem lol.

Next on my reading list is this series for Occult books. I am trying to read 26 Occult and 26 Fiction books this year for my Goodreads Challenge.

I have had this book for a few years now and never had the time or chance to pick it up. It took me forever to find the books since they weren’t in print (I haven’t checked to see if they are now), so I brought them used from a 3rd party seller. They all came wrapped and were brand new! I was so excited.

I am about a third of the way through the first book and I am taking notes like crazy lol. I enjoy this types of reading. I will be updating my reading list as often as I can. This book will have a complete review after I have read all three.

2018 Book Challenge 

Posted in Important Posts with tags , , , , , , , on 01/02/2018 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

I fell off last year and only logged like 4 books. So this year I’m going for 52. I mean if I can binge watch these shows, then I cam binge a book. 

I’m trying to do 26 Occult and 26 Fiction books this year. I want to clear out my kindle and my book shelf so I can purchase more books lol. 

So the first book of the year is Yoga Anatomy. It has very good reviews and I want to work on yoga and breathing techniques this month so I can incorporate it into my daily workings. 

You already know a review will be done after I am finished and I will be taking notes on it. Then after I do the practical applications I will share how they have impacted my practices.

The overall of this spread was very good. It was positive, and had a lot of confirmation for me and it pointed me where I was always going and help clarified a few issues I have been having.

From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:

Desire, Feelings, Anxiety, Disappointment, Guidance and Outcome

This ends in a tear jerker. Ugh! But it is an amazing story so far.

You have 5 parts. 80 chapters. Epilogue and the next chapter of the third book. All in 519+ pages. I mean this thing is massive and I have to stop myself from forgetting about all my duties to just sit and read the book till the end.

In part 1, you have Tom, Benny, Nix, Liliah and Chong moving out of Mountainside and into the Rot and Ruin. Part 2 you are introduced into an asshole of a character, and a few anomalies that make them all rethink what is going on. It is kind of unsettling, but there has to be an answer to them all. Part 3, it all goes to hell. The part is broken up, people are missing, new characters arrive, loyalties are tested, and people’s true feelings come out. Got to admit, I was like “you dumb son of a bitch”. I caught myself putting the book down because I was just so upset lol. I love books like that. Part 4 you start to realize how connected some of these people are and much of a bunch of dicks they are. People always have a real fucked up since of right and wrong, kind of how some people think today.It seems that the more deadly you are, the more the world should bow down to their needs. Just bullshit. Part 5 had me in tears, and had me laughing and cheering at the same time.

I  just cannot wait to start the third book, which I will do tomorrow. But so far, I wish these books where made into a movie, because that other zombie shit, is nonsense and quite annoying.
