  1. What have I finished reading?

Unfortunately with my Grandpa being in the hospital and him passing away, I entered a reading slump. I had a hard focusing on reading any books, so I didn’t finish reading anything.

The beginning of the book is a little bit sad, it reminded me of my Grandpa. He was the youngest of six siblings, so he saw all of his siblings leave their family home when he was young. And in the book, Kya she sees her siblings leave their house, too. And it took me awhile to read it, since I kept on thinking about my Grandpa.

Day 75

This lesson is from Tuesday March 16th.

I recommend that everyone spends some time in nature. Getting fresh air, and letting the sun embrace you is so good for our health. The sun gives us a lot of vitamins that helps improve our immune system. It also helps lift our spirits, and helps us feel better. I love spending time outside. I am so happy that warmer weather is almost here. I enjoy reading on our front porch with a cup of tea. I feel like it calms me down, and helps me feel better.

The best part is if you are busy, and don’t have a lot of spare time, that’s okay, because you don’t need to spend a lot of time outside in order to gain all of the benefits. In fact, spending too much in the sun, especially without sunscreen, can increase your risk of developing skin cancer. So if you plan on spending a lot of time outside, I suggest that you wear a hat, and that you continue to reapply sunscreen that way you are protected from the sun rays.

Today, I will ensure that I spend some time outside to allow the sun to give me many healthy vitamins. Spending a bit of time outside will help me feel better and healthy.

I am currently working through this book. So far it is really amazing. Although the beginning is a bit heartbreaking, so much so, that I kept on having to put it down.

This week is all about Spring Cleaning Freebie. This can be about books that you plan on donating, books you want to remove from your To Be Read List either by reading them, or removing their list due to lack of interest, or time.

I plan to talk about books I would like to read by the end of the year. I would like to read more classical books. Mind you, I know not everyone of these books are classical books.

What are some of the books that you plan on reading this year?

WWW Wednesdays – March 3rd, 2021

Let’s talk about books! This is a post where I discuss all the books that I have been reading, by answering the following questions…

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I read next?

I would love to know what everyone has read, or is reading! Feel free to post yours in the comments below.

  1. What have I finished reading?

It was a morning in June, when a woman took her dog for a walk, and she thought her dog came up to her with a stick, but it turns out to something much worst. The story is about how four close friends from boarding school, who thought were inseparable, play a game — The Lying Game. The rules are simple, lie, and never tell the truth to fellow students, and teachers. Although never lie to each other. Unfortunately the girls get expelled in their final year of boarding school. Which is how the girls start separating and going on their own journeys. Until one morning, Kate messages them with a three word text, “I need you”. This text message brings all four girls together. What the girls are about to find out is that their Lying Game has consequences.

I love reading Ruth Ware books, I think she is an amazing author. She writes thrillers. The first book I read of hers was The Turn of the Key, which is also amazing. What I like about her is she begins her books slowly, and providing a lot of details in the beginning of the book. She then picks up the pace, with thrilling details, so things start to get scary pretty fast. I really enjoyed this book a lot. I would recommend this if you like reading thrillers.

My rating: 4 stars out of 5

2. What am I currently reading?

So I switched this The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, because I found out other people are waiting for this book, so I have to return it to the library faster than The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I have read great reviews about this book. I am really fascinated and intrigued to read this book. All I know that it is really popular now, because people are able to relate to it to today’s world about being in insolation because of the pandemic lockdowns.

3. What will I be reading next?

I am intrigued to read these stories, and watch the movies. I feel like I am missing out on so much. I can’t wait to find out what happens in this series.

This week is about characters’ jobs you wish you could have. Mind you I mostly have been reading a lot of self help books, and I guess a lot of books I read have been Young Adults, so they didn’t have any jobs, yet.

  1. Sisterhood Everlasting

In this book Carmen is an actress, and I always thought it would be so cool to be an actress, and star in a movie, or a TV show.

2. The Happiness Project

I am very envious, because Gretchen is a successful author, and blogger. That is something that I inspire to do.

3. The Outlander

Claire is a combat nurse. When I was 10, I thought I wanted to be a nurse, but the whole Covid pandemic made me eerie, so I decided not to.

4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

I would love to work at a chocolate factory, so I was jealous of Willy Wonka

5. White Oleander

In this story her mother was a writer, and I always admired whatever she had written.

6. The Turn of the Key

When I was in middle school, I thought it would be fun to take care of children. In this story, the main character is a nanny.

7. Safe Haven

The main character is a waitress, and I always thought that it would be fun job when I was younger. I have never really been a waitress before, but I have worked a lot in the food industry.

8. The Year of Yes

Shonda Rhimes is a successful TV show creator and writer. I can only hope that my writing is that influential and amazing.

9. The Longest Ride

In the book, Sophia is an inspiring artist, and I wish I had those talents to become a good artist.

10. The Cuckoo’s Calling

I think it would be interesting to solve crimes. I watch a lot of crime dramas, and I enjoy solving and trying to figure why they’ve committed these crimes. I find it interesting, and I know that it’s totally different in real life.

Goodreads Mondays #20 – March 1st, 2021

This is the post where we discuss what is on our To Be Read List, and why we want to read these books. I have over 1,400 books on my To Be Read List. I have so much reading to do. What are some of the books on your To Be Read List?

This week I am going to talk about The Queen’s Gambit. It has become super popular, thanks to the Netflix series. The book was first published back in 1983. I haven’t seen the Netflix series yet, since I’ve been waiting to get it from my library. I have heard great things about the show, and the book. I am really excited to watch it and read it.

It is about an eight year old orphan. She is seen as a coy little girl, that is until she plays her first her game of chess. She begins to think more clearly, and finally feeling like she is in control of her life. At the age of 16, she begins to participate in competitions.

Goodreads Rating: 4.23 stars out of 5

I am so excited to read this one! I have had this book on my To Be Read for about 10 years now. I have been meaning to read this book. I’m going to order the next books in the series when I finish this one. Then I am also going to watch the movies as I finish the books. I love watching the series, or movies after I finish reading the book.
