I warned you. Lots and lots of books :)

Here are the ones I read for my goal this month: 

Cinder: A re-told fairytale

Asylum: Scary book

I didn't read a trilogy but I did read the whole Spiderwick series.

Sadly no classic but maybe next month :)

My favorites:

The Madman's Daughter: it was very interesting and a totally unique idea. I loved the way it went into a totally different kind of mad and I loved the way it pulled me into the characters! Love.

Asylum: really loved this. It was freaky and scary but had a good plot non-the-less. The characters were like able and I enjoyed the way it slowly revealed the past.

Panic: amazing! love. love. Love! I love how she went back and forth between the two main characters and made me fall in love with them and their stories. Unlike any book I have read and beautifully written. I loved the intensity of the game and the reasons for both of them taking that risk.

Cinder: it was a bit slow at first but as the characters pulled me in and the story continued it was very interesting and I really did love it! I can't wait to read the next one. I love the way she totally changed the Cinderella story into a dystopian, robot, mystery, and so much more.

My : Not so much books:

Into The Wild: not terrible but I don't think I will be continuing this series. Although I am not really one for animal books so that might be why I didn't really love it. I enjoyed the characters and the writting was well done but it was just not my type of book.

Fly one the wall: very interesting. I mean it was a bit over the top and a little disturbing but it wasn't terrible. It was more of a funny book. But I won't be re-reading this book. It was kinda cute and silly but not amazing.

This month was full of reading :) I hope everybody else got to read tons of awesome books.

What did you guys read this month? Have you read any of these books? If so what's did you think of them?

My goal for next month:

A nonfiction

A scary book

A classic

A romance

Hope everybody had an awesome February :)

My Favorite Moments Of January

This January has been full of crazy fun, silly faces, Bojangles, dressing up in beautiful vintage dresses and more!

Here are some of my favorite moments of this past January! :)

In the very beginning of the month I got to hang out with our awesome homeschool group! We played tons of board games and ran around the woods for quite a while :)

It was tons of fun!

This past month I have gotten to spend more time with my cousin Luna and my amazing Aunt Rachel! We have gone out for Thai food, made homemade cookies and she and my Uncle Chris have taught me many new board games! :) Thanks for hanging out with me I love you guys! <3

I love this photo of me and Luna!!! Love you my little moon girl <3

And of course doing crazy face-masked monster faces! 

Our cousins Chloe and Fiona came over for a awesome two-day sleepover and we got to jump on the trampoline (and it was soaking wet so we ended up sliding all over the place :) wear crazy face masks, do a photo shoot and they even introduced us to some awesome movies!

And of course going to rollerskating with these awesome girls!

And hanging out with the Murray's practicing wheelchair wheelies! (Chloe is awesome at wheelchair wheelies by the way!  <3)

Lemme take a selfie! I think Emma was a little overwhelmed with all the kids (especially when we ate that cake out of the pan... :) but of course we had to get a picture with everybody in it :)

My lovely (crazy) family in the car headed downtown because it wasn't raining that day :) We walked around and then ended up at Tyler's and played games and ate there! 

And we can't forget Repticon! Thank you Charlotte and Chloe for joining us at Repticon it was so much fun!!! We got to hold all kinds of snakes, turtles and even a few lizards :)

I had such a great time going over to my grandparents! We girls got to hang out and talk and of course try on beautiful vintage dresses that we couldn't help having a bit of fun with! <3

I love this photo of us! Thanks Grandma (and Aunt Rachel) for taking tons (Tons :) of photos of us !! 

And this too cute photo of Luna in her Mothers and Aunts old shirt they wore when they were little :)

And too end this amazing month with a bit blurry dog-pile photo of me, my Aunt Rachel, my Grandma, and my cousins Fiona and Chloe! Love you girls so much! <3        

This month has been amazing! Thank you everybody who has been apart of it! I will always cherish these moments and the people that sadly couldn't be apart of them.

I hope everybody else had as amazing a month as I did! <3
