2017:Intellectual Growth and Reading Expansion

​According to Neil deGrasse Tyson, these are the 8 essentials that every intelligent person should read. These books were my Christmas gift.

I’ve been getting my 2017 reading challenge list together. I want to expand my reading culture 🙃. Meaning try new things, learn new things, read different perspectives, so on and so forth. Looks like I’ll be adding these to my list! Geez, its going to be a long list!  Coming soon! I think I might add a writing challenge too!! Avid readers tend to be great writers….or so they say 😕….I guess we’ll see about that….

Cop a Feel: Silver Flame

Just finished reading Silver Flame by Karpov Kinrade as promised here are my “feels”.

Intoxicated~ For the love shown, for feeling like home  (check out my quote of the day!)

Confused~ A love triangle for the reader much more than the character. No one is as they seem.

Frustrated~ Things don’t always go my way 😉

Vengeful~  For the piece of  **** (crap)  vampire that needs to be SHUT DOWN

Jaw Dropped~ As the ending once again caught me off guard.

Have you read it? How did you feel? Reading something else? Tell me about it!


Something New…..

Ok guys. A while back I told you I wasn’t a fan of book reviews. Still not 😉 However, I want to share my reading adventures with you! So instead, I’ll “review” a book by sharing of few words on how it made me feel. I don’t remember details about books, sometimes I forget the plot. I’ve NEVER forgotten how a book made me feel. Sometimes, I even associate memories and music with books. For instance, I remember sitting in my bedroom listening to Harry Potter books on tape my mother bought me for Christmas. I remember how much I hated middle school and high school and books got me through those times. I remember listening to “Talking Body” by Tove Lo when I read Sustain by Tijan ;).  I remember how much I loved Night Circus. I remember the OMG factor when I read Hunger Games, a book I refused to read for the longest time. I remember. I love the feelings I get when I read. So I’ll share them and hopefully you share with me as well. 🙂

I’ll call this series…. “Cop a feel” LOL And if I think of something more sophisticated (or not) maybe I’ll change the name.

Post coming soon!
