Usually Friday the 13th is a great day for me… but…
I had this whole video made for my Friday Reads. Hell, I even had a thumbnail:
But… due to a really bad angle in the video, I have to re-shoot it… or wait until next week. I might do one early in the morning. I really liked this picture too. 😥
Anyways, out with the bad and in with the new…format!
THIS FRIDAYS/UPCOMING WEEKS TBR:
PS: You won’t be seeing Rebel Belle this week. It’s not that I don’t like it… I do! I just can’t focus on it.
On to the books!
- The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
I started this after I finished Little Peach by Peggy Kern. I am flipping loving it. It has my dearest dream in the beginning. I hope to have this finished by Sunday. 😀
2. The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
I reeaallllyyyy want to start this soon. I have been staring at this for a New York Minute, and I just cannot see why I haven’t! A lot of people are comparing it to X-Men. I like X-Men. I really want X-Men books. I justsiujdf;kajhsdf;asdfalkd
Also, I got this for review the day after it released so, I feel like I should. Plus X-Men.
3. The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski
I have actually already started this. I am reaaaalllllyy liking it. I would be reading this now, if it wasn’t for the fact I was reading TGAM. I am almost scared to finish it though… the wait for this was pure torture!
4. Material Girls by Elaine Dimopoulos
This is another for review, but it is one I am very intrigued by. It’s said to be like Divergent/The Selection/High fashion… I like the ideas behind it. =) It seems like it will be a really adventurous read… plus it’s a one shot.
5. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
I own like… a lot of Colleen Hoover on my kindle. I now own one in physical. I need to get onto this. Like, now. Plus it’s becoming a movie and I need a good contemporary.
SO ONTO THE UPDATES!
You see this tumbler?
Yeah. This magnificent beast is actually my 3rd one. Let me tell you WHY.
1st one: I won it in a twitter giveaway; heres the video;
. It came with this wonderful cup… but it was warped. Warped to the point of cracking after a few uses. D: I blame the Texas heat, so they very kindly sent a new cup. It quickly became my everything but hot coffee and hot tea cup. I had that cup for a good long time… until it dropped, cracked and seeped liquid…
I was VERY sad. It was my favorite cup… so I asked I think around January if there was a chance I could purchase a new one… they said ” No, but we can send you a replacement. ”
This was me:
CAUSE SOMEONE UP THERE LOVES ME.
So now I have a new tumbler and commence drinking.
” But Reisa, why do you have some random tea thing in your now useless thumbnail? “
Let me tell you, my non empathetic friend!
I contacted TeaVivre about doing a few reviews on their teas! I was expecting maybe a small sample bag of maybe 2, 3… NO. THEY SENT ME A HUGE SAMPLE BAG WITH MANY.
So! Starting next week (hopefully), I will be starting a video blog over the next few weeks called ” Tea Party Tuesdays “, where I will review one tea a week, and possibly update you on things in my life as I review. 😀
Of course there will be footage of the steeping as well!
Other than that, tomorrow is a big ol’ day for lil’ ol’ introvert me, because I am having a new friend over!
And this is basically me:
I SUCK at this kind of thing. I am not used to asking people to hang out or even talking much in public. Or even wanting to be in public. I rather be inside.
I actually reached out, cause well… I don’t have many friends. I have my fiance, his best friend (and one of mine), our friends who are a couple, one of their sisters, and that is it.
I did have one before, but she moved away after she got married. Don’t get me wrong, I love that she did, but I really do miss her; even if we did drift apart in the last year.
I don’t know what to do. We are going to be Netflixing a movie, but other than that!? I have no idea how to friend.
Oh well. :S
Anyways, I am gonna go now, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
Over & Out,
Rei’sa al Ghul
