Sometimes I wonder if any one is even reading this i guess the point isn't if some one is, but that I'm writing at all. Many times, I believe, people need a way to talk about their everyday issues to people outside of their family (isn't it weird how it seems esier to approach a subject with like a friend than a brother/sister?). The things that bother them, the highs and low's of life, all those things that seem stuck in their heads. I find myself writing sometimes on pieces of paper those random story plots that pop into my head those issues that i want to resolve mostly its just to get them out to find a release. so i decided that since this was my blog about "books, reviews and the blogger behind it all" i would also feature post about me. Anyways i haven't been blogging about books lately, not that i haven't been reading but more like i just wanna read and read nonstop and find myslef reluctant to make time to blog i wanna read the next book not talk about the last one or at least not write about it but still I'll start reviewing again a post here and there.
So what's going on with me?? lately I've been more about living a healthier lifestyle which means that I'm eating more veggies, lean meat, exercising. That doesn't mean I'm not on a "diet", mostly because i'm a firm believer that "dieting" isn't helpful at all. I mean yeah you lose weight, for a while at least but most people think "ooooh eat a little for a while, after i lose wait i can stop" and yes you can but that means that the weight you've lost will come back. "Diets" are temporary and that's why i don't like them never have, still one of the major factor to losing weight is your eating habits. It doesn't mean that you just eat salads that i think would be more of a "diet" but it does mean realizing what you're eating if there's a healthier option, either another food or a substitution to make a meal healthier, and just keeping yourself accountable. If you mess up, don't worry it happens just make sure that the next meal/day is better that you workout a little more and get at it DON"T give up!!! Motivation is key as well and i just joined the Blogilates June Dietbet i find that its a way to motivate myself and i don't feel like i'm the only person going through this journey. for now this it i'll talk more about it in another post but now i gotta run my family is waiting for me until later

Long time no see my beauties, how long has this blogging hiatus been?? Far longer than i would have wanted and expected. So whats happened in my life? I graduated from high school, Got a new Job, started a coffee business became more in-tune with my inner glamor girl and just been more out and about
That's also been the reason I've been away for so long, i haven't been reading as much as i was previously and just generally didn't have the time to blog any more not to mention how blogger was giving me so many issues. Thankfully I'm back and since android has the app for blogger i can now blog from my phone as well so that means I'll b able to update more, that also means some of my newer blog will feature not only books I'm currently reading but also things from my everyday life so stay tuned!
I hope you can bear with me as I get back into the habit of blogging and post comments with questions, book's you'd like me to review about me and stuff of that nature but for now its off to update other parts of this blog (like the about me page it still says I'm 18!!)
as always ♥, Carol
ps. what do you guys think of my little pictures? cute or not lol :)

|The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer|
By: Michelle Hodkin
Synopsis- "Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
do you hear the crickets?
because that seems to be the only thing I can hear after being shocked speechless. I just finished reading "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" and I'm still reeling from all the emotions I got while reading it. While there are many things I could say about this book, I have to first applaud Michelle Hodkin for creating such a great debut novel. It had the right amount of intrigue, romance, suspense, nail biting feeling a book should have and inspire. From the very beginning this book captivated me, I loved the fact it started so mysterious, the characters that were ever changing with out becoming completely different from the original, and of course the romance can't forget the romance.
|I'm in ♥ with ♥|
I was intrigued by the synopsis of "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" and so when I had the opportunity to read this book I took it. The whole story is told with flashbacks to an event that sets in motion various important things. Many key components are foretold yet not fully revealed and while usually that drives me insane I actually enjoyed the mystery. After I found out that there will be a sequel I was really excited and my weird feelings concerning the end of the book were laid to rest. Of course I wont tell you the ending but lets just say it definitely made me anxious to read the next book as soon as possible.
Cover Talk! - I love the cover its mysterious just like the book at first look it just seems like a girl in a dress the you notice the fact her face is obscured, there are hands holding her and shes underwater. It's one of those books covers that really fits the book in my opinion. I definitely made me want to read the book that much more. I'm not sure if there are any other book covers (have you seen any other version?) but I wouldn't change it Love it!
My Opinion Ooer! -I feel like this review has to be short because I dont want to inadvertently giveaway some thing and ruin this amazing book for you and also because most of the things I want to talk about are questions or things I want to see if others found, like I said it would ruin the book for you all. So instead I'll leave you with this quote of a quote I loved "You have to be an artist and a madman, a creature of infinite melancholy, in order to discern, at once, the little deadly demon among the wholesome children"- Vladimir Nabokov quoted by Michelle Hodkin for "The unbecoming of Mara Dyer" I love that it doesn't tell you a secret yet it kind of does. This quote, the way its said not to mention the person who says it, just took my breath away and I can't wait till you get to read it maybe you'll love it as much as I do or maybe you'll come back and tell me what your favorite quote was. I hope every one buys this book, I personally haven't bought it yet but I will and it will be going on my middle book shelf aka my favorite books shelf have a fun weekend every one.
