The Push by Ashley Audrian - Book Review | Worth the read?

 



The Push by Ashley Audrian is a story about and mother and her daughter. It is a story about nature vs nurture. It is a story about one little bad seed! In this story we are following a mother, who try as she might cannot connect with her daughter, who might be a monster, or is it all in the mother's head?

This book surprised me!

At first I could not get into the writing style or the constant back and forth in time jumps, but I told myself to just push on and try a few more chapters. I'm very glad I did. My rating would be a 4.5 or A-/B+ but I went ahead and put 5 stars because this book surprised me with how much I like it. I mean, I even finished it in one day! So let's get into the positives and negatives...

Let's get into the positives:
-I find that it gives us a look into some of the thoughts of motherhood. (Which I personally have not experienced myself, but as a woman, and someone who does want children in the future, I was interesting to read.)
-It kept me on my feet as I was reading wondering if this woman's child was really evil or not.
-It really evoked a lot of emotion and feeling throughout the story.
-The characters compelled me.


Mixed/Negatives:
- It took a while to get use to the writing style, and the back and forth of the time jumps.

Overall though I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it. Though I would say it deals with some tough topics, it is very interesting and entertaining.

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.

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
