History of the Void Garden: The Princess of the Infinite. #bookreview

Histories of the Void Garden: Princess of the Infinite is the sequel to Histories of the Void Garden: Pyre of Dreams.  I thought that I would enjoy this book more than I actually did. There are so many questions left unanswered: Why Stephanie had special powers or what she was capable of doing? Is the waitress special? Why can’t I stay awake while reading books anymore?

This book introduced a few new characters. Normally, I wouldn’t mind but I felt like there was too much going on with several storylines.

At the end of the book, I still didn’t know what was going on at all. The ending left it open for a third book in the series.

So this book has potential but I think all of the characters and their purpose can get confusing. The story could have been written from the perspective of Stephanie, the Princess of the Infinite, and it would have been almost perfect. She is such an interesting character. I’m not sure about Sam Cushing . He’s kind of a douchebag and not especially interesting to me.

In my opinion, it’s called Princess of the Infinite and more should be written about her instead of making more characters that are not as captivating.

I think I gave the book 3 stars on Amazon. If you’re interested in reading the book, you can also find the book on Amazon.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: Hug in a Mug

#WeekendCoffeeShare: Hug in a Mug
If we were having coffee, I would tell you . . .
  • I need an extra cup today. I need it so I can motivate myself to motivate my children.
  • Hopefully, we’ll find a decent nature trail.
  • I won’t be able to wear anything fancy like the things you find on Polyvore.
  • I’ve been journaling. Maybe it will help with my case of the bitchies.
  • Last week, Eva and I went on the bike trail. It was pretty nice. I also realized that I need a bike rack. It takes a lot of energy to put the bikes in the back of a minivan.
  • I’m like the rest of the you and watching Hurricane Irma. Hope that everyone stays safe!

The Taste of Air: #bookreview

 

Can you imagine finding out that your mother has another life that you didn’t know anything about at all?

If you’re looking for a good book about secrets, dealing with life and family, a good  choice would be “Taste of Air” by Gail Cleare.

So Nell travels to take care of her mother, who is in the hospital in a different state. Her mother isn’t supposed to be in a different state. She’s supposed to be living at an assisted living community.

It is the first of many secrets that Nell and her sister, Bridget, uncover.

I liked the main characters, Nell and Bridget. The neighbor guy seems a little weird. He has some secrets too.

This book made me think about the sacrifices that spouses make in order to make other people happy. Nell’s mother, Mary, made some huge sacrifices for her husband. Right or wrong, I don’t think I could make sacrifices like that for anybody. Especially not if Mary’s husband was my husband. He’s deceased but from the way people talk about him, he seems less than pleasant.

I enjoyed reading this book. It only took a day or two to read it because I wanted to know all of the secrets and to understand why Mary led two lives.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: birthday wish list

Birthday Wish List
If we were having coffee, I would tell you
  • that it’s my birthday today.
  • I hate and love my birthday. It’s complicated.
  • I keep waiting for someone to plan something amazing for my birthday.
  • It NEVER happens. Like NEVER.
  • Sure, I get taken out to dinner and probably a cake or some birthday pancakes.
  • You’re probably saying, “What’s wrong with that? Why are you whining so much?”
  • Nothing is wrong with it.
  • This year, I got nothing. No birthday pancakes. No dinner. No cake. For damn sure no amazing special presents.
  • I had to make my own damn bagel.
  • My mom is the only one that even comes close to making my birthday special. Thank God for my mom.
  • I was supposed to do something that I signed up to do. I didn’t do it for several reasons. That’s disappointing.
  • So I guess that means I really, really have to start figuring out all of that self-care bullshit about making my own happiness a priority. I do not want to have another shitty birthday like this year.
  • Obviously no one else is going to plan anything so I will have to do it.
  • The picture is just a bunch of stuff that I would like to wear. I need somewhere to wear nice things.
  • I’m thinking about running away next year. (Seriously. I’m thinking about doing it now but I have babysitting issues. Also, I have a job and responsibilities. What a bunch of shit.)
  • Hope your weekend has been better than mine.
Happy Fucking Birthday to me!
P.S. Misha Collins was the first one to send me birthday wishes. I don’t care if it was a generated mass produced email. It’s all I have right now.
