Wrap up of Dewey’s readathon

24 hours of reading is completed! Even with all the interruptions of life I still managed to read 789 pages off four books. Feeling beyond accomplished even though I didn’t think it was going to be possible.

In the first half, I managed to complete Purple Orchids and The Neon Lawyer. The neon lawyer wasnt something I was very much interested in, it dragged a lot and the plot was a bit typical. It isn’t a recommended read but if you do manage to snag it for free with the audio then go for it. 

Purple Orchids had so many steamy scenes and it kept me very much interested because just when you thought you had it figured out, something else would happen and throw you for a crazy loop.  Can you believe it was a romance novel? Yup, my reading a romance novel is beyond rare, like finding a four leaf clover. 

Now as the readathon was winding down, I did snag in about  3 hours of sleep that I needed oh so badly. I did wake up and began to read Good as Gone by Amy Gentry which started off really good and I am hoping to continue reading it. Who doesn’t like a good kidnapping, survival, thriller book? 

Then, I began listening to The Color Of Secrets which is a world war 2 novel and anything based in that era always gets my attention so that one I managed to read close to half of it.  

Out of all the books I read during the readathon Purple Orchids was my favorite. I am shocked that I enjoyed a romance novel because I tend to steer clear of those but it was nice to step out of my comfort zone which is what I had intended to do for this readathon. 

I am so excited for the next one in October and even joined another group that holds monthly readathons! I think I have rediscovered my inner bookworm. 

Which book did you enjoy reading during the readathon? If you didn’t participate,  will you consider joining the dewey’s 24 hour readathon in october? 

Stay blessed! 


We went to…


Jurassic world was on my top summer movies to see and Thursday, Steven wanted to take a trip to see it and so off we went all six of us. 

The kids got to play in the arcade a bit and we walked around the whole mall until it was time for the movie to start. It was Kay’s first time at the movies and I was a bit skeptical because she has never been to the movies and let’s just say she was a bit fussy because it was  almost time for her to go down for bed so he had to remove himself with her for a few. He still was able to come back for the good parts and it was very good to say the least. 

We choose to just pig out and have a eat out day to make my day a bit easier. With Kay it has been a few difficult and very exhausting days. She has been getting over the slight cold she got from the change of temperature and she has super hyper and getting into everything. 

I really do wonder if she has hit her terrible twos early! Is that even possible? I have never experienced this with my other 3 so this is all very much new territory for me. I’m trying very hard and catch myself slipping into the bathroom to cry when she gets too much to handle.

I will be looking up methods to try to see how I can get her cope with her feelings and also how I can cope as well because it is getting overwhelming. Let’s just hope she outgrows it soon because she hasn’t even hit the age of two yet. 

If your a mother, has your child experienced the terrible twos early?
