Late Night Thoughts…It’s not what you think

It’s been a while since I have posted because I have been too ‘busy’ for a lot of things these days. I put my quotations there because I truly believe that we make time for the things that really matter to us. Even if it’s just a few minutes or an hour out of the precious time we have been blessed with.

But on to why I’m here…

I have been working on a blog that I hoped to have published in less than a week but that may not happen. It’s requiring a lot more research than anticipated as well as I have to figure out a way to disclose without offending anyone mentioned. That’s always a hard task!

So I took to reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth again because I got too ‘busy’ and sort of forgot about my book reading goal. Now let me tell you, I loved Divergent and Insurgent! They were absolutely well written and had me on an emotional roller coaster that didn’t leave me damaged, just wanting more. I have been getting a similar feeling from Allegiant, though I’m more concerned about where it’s going since it’s the last book. I’m going to avoid any spoilers just in case someone who reads this haven’t read it as yet. I am going to discuss though the sentiments I have been getting so far.

First let me tell you, my sister introduced me to this series. She sent me the PDF version for Divergent and Insurgent and though I am not a lover of e-books I read it and really enjoyed it. When she sent me Allegiant she gave a pretty clear disclaimer.  She said, and I quote, ‘I am upset! I don’t like the ending.’ That put me off for a while and I even lost the PDF version she sent me. After watching Insurgent, I decided to buy the hard copy and enhance my reading experience.  This way if I don’t necessarily enjoy it, I won’t have the added frustration of my eyes and head hurting because of the light from my tablet or computer. It’s been working out great so far but I am telling you, I am seriously concerned about where this is going and what this means for Tris, Four and all the other characters.

I love the fact that more has been revealed about her mother and other characters such as her father, but there are some things I don’t really understand. I won’t get to antsy because I am only at page 262 *covers face*.  I really think I did the right thing when I decided to read tonight, because my head space has been so clouded and it is great to be able to step out of it for a while. Though the life and stories in the book are complicated, I welcome the drama and complication it gives me rather than the ones I am dealing with in reality.

So really, this post was not a lot of anything but I feel safe sharing in this space. I’m going to publish this and go back to reading more of Allegiant before I go to bed.

P.S. Someone on Twitter also told me the book and Tris would annoy me, but I am trying not to let that alter my feelings towards the content of this book. I will read it to the end and form my own opinion, even if this is similar to the opinions of others. 

Good Night!! You’ll be hearing from me soon.

The Gifts of Imperfection: Your Guide to a Wholehearted Life – Brene Brown (Part 1)

“The universe isn’t short on wake up calls. We’re just too quick to hit the snooze button.” – Brene Brown

I am a GoodReads girl, I go there to find quotes that speak to me and ultimately books I can read to help with making my life feel more fulfilling. So when I came across Brene Brown’s quote I made a promise to get her book. I totally forgot the promise I made to myself, until a friend of mine Perrisha, sent me a link to her (Brene) TedTalk: Listening To Shame. I listened and I couldn’t help but to think “You have to get her book.” but again, that though got lost in all the madness.

It got lost until I was on Amazon looking for The Four Agreements and like a light bulb, her name appeared in my head so I ordered her book. I got it on Wednesday and I started to read this morning. After the preface, I am sure I will be enjoying this book. She writes with honesty and that is something I adore in a writer.

It is safe to say that I will be diving heart first into this book, and I will be sharing bits of it with you. I don’t usually do this, but I really believe this book will be worth sharing.I also believe that it will help me to put to paper my thoughts on it and how it makes me feel.

So let’s get ready for a great literary journey!
