Review: A Secret History of Witches

A Secret History of Witches A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! The writing is amazing and the story really drew me in. I didn't want to put it down.

I do tend to fall in love with books that have a witchcraft/magic theme in it. I'm not entirely too sure why. (Maybe my love of Harry Potter has something to do with it.) But I found myself not wanting to stop reading this book.

I love how the story continued with each generation, normal that is a turn off for me but I found that it works for this book. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves historical fiction and paranormal fiction.

This is definitely one I want to add to my personal library sometime in the future.

Review: Illuminate

Illuminate Illuminate by Aimee Agresti
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

If you enjoy books following the main character on a journey on finding out who they really are and what they are capable of, then you will enjoy this book.

This is another book where I think if I had found it when I was in high school, I would have probably loved it. It has a great plot but the way everything was leading up to the climax was a bit disappointing for me. The ending was great however, it was hard to put it down when it got to the last 10% of the book.

This is one series that I'm going to have to pass up, even though I believe it has a great storyline. It didn't hook me into as much as I wished it did.

Just Not Feeling It...

This week has been another uneventful week. There have been some weeks where I felt like I have nothing to say at all. Nothing to share really. I'm trying to not have blogging feel like a chore that needs to be done and lately it has been. I'm not the most active person when it comes to being present on social media and I'm not going to feel guilty about that. I always feel bad when it comes to this stuff and I really need to stop and do what makes me happy. There will be weeks where I will have some posts and there will be weeks where I won't have one at all. And it's ok. I don't need to put this stress on myself. I just need to be happy with what I actually do get posted. 

I hope you understand my ramblings and thank you for putting up with my ups and downs. It's ok for me to admit that I'm human and sometimes just don't have anything to share.

Dealing With Disappointment

I've been dealing with a hard week. My anxiety has been on the breaking point all week and have been barely hanging on by a thread. I was dreading leaving the house all week and just wanted to hide from the world. More so since Thursday. Our trying to conceive journey has been extended once again and the sadness had set in full force. I've been kind of in a depression fog ever since then. Well, I'm not sure if you could call in depression. I'm more heartbroken than depressed. Yes, I cried the first day or two but now I'm just numb. I'm trying to keep my mind and hands busy. 

I've put some work into all of my projects, even started a new crochet project. I had also finished a project today too! I got one of the three Jolly Stockings finished. The first being for Jordan.


The yarn is Red Heart Super Saver in Camo, Tea Leaf, and Coffee. The hook size is US H- 5.00mm. I've also been reading Illiumate by Amiee Agresti, an ebook loan from my local library. It's a Young Adult, fiction novel about a sixteen-year-old girl who starts working at a special hotel that has some quirks. It's ok so far, but I may not finish the rest of the series. It's not hooking me into it.
