Forever… – Judy Blume

Hey guys,

We all love Judy Blume. So many of us grew up with her books and those books made a lasting impression on us (everyone needs Double Fudge in their lives). So this book was written back in 1975, won the 1996 A.L.A. Margaret A. Edwards Award for Outstanding Literature for Young Adults and was said to be ahead of its time. It was, and for some, it might still be. I really, really adored this book. I related a lot to the story and it hurt.

Forever by Judy Blume.

The Eternity Cure (The Blood of Eden, #2)

Hey guys,

So I finished The Immortal Rules in about 24 hours (which is pretty impressive for me considering I was also working 8 of those hours) and had to find out how the story continues. Honestly, my head is still reeling with how much I am enjoying this series. To think I stumbled across the series accidentally on a Facebook YA fan page!

To recap, The Immortal Rules ended with Allison leaving Zeke and his family at Eden, the last safe haven for humans, without saying goodbye to go an search for Kanin, her sire, who was kidnapped by Sarin. Zeke, the descendant of Malakai Crosse who was one of the original scientists working on the cure for Red Lung, was tasked to bring the original research for the cure to Eden which they succeed in bringing to Eden. Kanin has been taken by Sarren, a psychotic vampire used in the vampire experiments in an attempt to develop a cure, and has been torturing Kanin along their journey together.

What To Expect When You Are Expecting

Hey guys,

There has been some radio silence on my part recently. I am alive and kicking, just struggling to find the motivation to do anything productive. I’ve been thinking about my blog a lot but can’t find the energy to start writing something. It’s a bit of a slump. I’ve even just been rereading the same books rather than delve into anything new. (As much as I love ACOTAR, I really need to find something else to read!)

It isn’t all miserable, far from it really. There are some exciting times ahead for my fiance and me- our dynamic duo is going to become a trio in May 2019. We are expecting our first baby (a lovely little girl) and we are so in love with a person we have yet to meet. A lot of exciting changes are coming about.

30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 18

Day 18 – Describe Your First Love and First Kiss (Of Significance)

This could be… interesting. Good prompt and we could probably say a lot on the matter.

I’ve definitely taught myself not to look back in anger. It is my past and we live on regardless of it.

Let’s disregard silly things we do as kids when boys were yucky and I was more interested in rolling down hills and climbing trees.

I was 14 and I was in love. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 18”

30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 12

My first writing challenge and I’ve ruined it. I’ve been working the early shift at work and by the time I’m finished I’ve just been so tired and so emotionally done that all I’m doing when I get home is sleep. I managed to wash the car yesterday which is something, at least. So now I’m three days behind. I’ll catch up, I promise.

Day 12 – Your Best Friend

Day 11 – What You Wore Today

Hey guys,

So today was a rare day off work that I didn’t have anything planned. I was thinking of doing so many things but in the end I decided to go and see my younger brother and his girlfriend who live up in Inverness. It was a beautiful day, perfect for a trip to a beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands. My fiancé was working so I headed off myself for what was rocking up to be a relaxing day out.

30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 9

Day 9 – Something You Think “What If?” About

This is one I think about quite frequently actually. It doesn’t do good to constantly dwell on a life of ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ but sometimes it is interesting to think. A big “what if?” for me revolves around my move from Glasgow to Aberdeen four years ago. I spent most of my life in the central belt of Scotland, I went to school there and its where most of my immediate family all stay. When I finished high school, due to a number of difficulties with life and my family, I made the conscious decision to move away for university. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 9”
