Book! - Let's talk about books and reading 2021

 Hey everyone!


It's been awhile since my last blog post....

But here I am again! 

So today I'm going to be listing off some good and not so good books I've been reading so far into 2021. If you're interested, just keep on reading 


Some books I've read so far this year worth missing:


Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire    *** - 3 stars out of 5



The most recent book I have finished, this book explores what happens to those students who find doorways to other worlds, and what really happens when they come back to the "real" world. A very interesting concept, I enjoyed most of the characters and the writing, but felt the story to be a bit incomplete, but still think it's worth checking out, which is why it gets a 3 out of 5 rating. 


The Maze Runner series - The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trails, and The Death Cure by James Dashner

**** 4 stars out of 5



I'm glad I read this series this year. I finished all three books in February and I really enjoyed this series. The trilogy I feel is quite well done and wrapped up well in the final book. This dystopian series follows a group of young boys who find themselves in a maze in the first book and they are trying to figure out the mystery of why they are there since no of them have memories. Again, another good concept, and as we get more clues revealed throughout the books, I enjoyed how the author revealed what was really going on. 

Winter World - by A.G. Riddle  ****4 out of 5 stars



I enjoyed this sci-fi novel a lot and surprisingly, since I don't really read a lot of sci-fi. Sci-fi books aren't my usual cup of tea, but this one was intriguing and kept my attention until the final pages. This book is set in the near future in which the entire earth is now in an ice age. No one knows why the entire earth is getting colder and freezing but it's soon discovered that it isn't by natural means. Overall, this story was pretty good even with all the science-y, technical terms thrown around, I greatly enjoyed this one.

Million Yen Women - Japanese Drama Review

Hey! In this post I'm going to be reviewing a Japanese Drama called Million Yen Women, that I watched on Netflix. First a little background. One of my favorite things to do is watch TV. I love finding a good show and binge watching. I started watching Asian dramas my sophomore year of college and since then I've been hooked. I've watched dramas from Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Pakistan, Philippines, and India. Now I don't exclusively like shows from these Asian countries, I still watch American shows as well, but I do find myself binge watching these more often because they are usually one season with anywhere between 10-30 episodes. Short and to the point. Now there are shows that are longer but generally that is the episode range. In addition, I also watch telenovelas occasionally, but let's save that for another post. Through my blog I want to review and recommend some TV shows that I truly enjoyed and I hope you will too! Anyway lets get

Review of Colourpop Garden Variety Palette

Many makeup brands have been going crazy with so many new makeup release and today I'm giving my quick opinion on the newish Colourpop Garden Variety palette. Since this palette released a few weeks ago, Colourpop has already released two other collections, so I'm a little behind, but I wanted to share my opinion on the Garden Variety palette since I actually bought this palette myself and wanted to review it. So let's get into my opinion and quick review: First some.... Basic Information: Price - $20 Pans - 15 eyeshadows Formulas - mattes, metallics, and Colourpop's super shock formula Net Weight - 17g (.6 oz) Shades: neutrals, oranges, corals, golds, purples, greens, and browns My Opinion: Quality - The quality is the usual quality for Colourpop. Colourpop is one of my favorite brands and has a very good formula. On top of being affordable, they also have a very good formula. This palette is no exception, it has a good formula and I had no issues blending the shadows.

Ways Teachers Can Handle Stress!

As a teacher that is in my second (and a half) year of teaching, I can attest to the very true fact that teaching is not only difficult, it is also very stressful. Many may not understand, or may think that teachers just complain, but the truth is that teachers work really hard, long hours, and they often neglect their own health or families to make sure students have everything they need. Now this isn't going to be every teacher but most teachers I've met and worked with so far are very dedicated and work to give their students the best. So... That being said, how can teachers relieve some of the stress that comes with the pressure to provide the best for students. Here are some tips that hopefully can help someone, including myself. I need to take my own advice, because this being only my second (and a half) year of teaching, I already feel worn out and I had a health scare not to long ago. Teachers everywhere, please remember to take some time for yourself and relieve so
