52 Week Blog Challenge- Week 14

My Favorite Book……..

  Not many people know this about me but I love murder mysteries!!  I am a big fan of reading about murders, watching shows about murders and being apart of even fake murder mysteries.  I have never been on a murder mystery weekend but someday I hope too.  Some of the murder shows you see on television already let you see who the killer is and they spend the hour figuring out why they did it like Columbo, Monk and even Law and Order sometimes.  I would rather try and figure out who did it like on Scooby-Doo, CSI and other crime shows like on Lifetime.

Somy favorite book as a child was Poky Little Puppy but as an adult it was a book I read a year ago called “What Happened to Flynn” by Pat Muir

This book was about a missing man named Flynn who the cops could not find a body for and they enlisted the help of an African-American detective who worked day after day to try and solve the case.  This book was definitely a page turner and one of the greatest mysteries I’ve read so far.  You can purchase this book on Amazon.

That’s all I got for you today. Thank you for reading my blog posts and don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe!!

Book Review #1:Rachel Hollis

Hey hey guys, I am doing something a little bit different these coming months where I am going to introduce you to my world of reading. Now, I will admit, I have not read a book all the way through since 50 Shades of Grey Part 1 came out but I have always wanted to read interesting works by other writers. The book I am going to review this month is a book written by a great women who loves to help other women get out of their way and see what the potential that they already have. Growing from tragedy and being able to be successful in life with some bumps along the way is real-life for her and she wants you to know-ITs Normal! Introducing a lady I highly respect for her courage and empowerment of other: Rachel Hollis

I read this book from cover to cover and was amazed at the similiarities we have. I thought I was the only one thinking and going through it. For those of you who do not know who Rachel Hollis is, she is a Mom of 3 boys and a 1 girl, wife to Dave Hollis and founder of a lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and Ceo of her own Media company. She has alot of followers online via instagram, facebook, youtube etc. She is a woman who likes to tell it like it is, she encourages, enlightens and works to help others acheive the same sense of confidence she exudes throughout everything she does with the help of God.

I am going to review this book in 4 parts:

  • Why did I pick this book to read?
  • What part of the book, really hit home for me: (ex. made me cry or have a aha moment)?
  • What is one thing I took away from the book that I will change in my life?
  • How would I rate this book out of 5 stars?

Rachel Hollis: Girl, Wash Your Face

  • I picked this book because it came highly recommended online. I was curious as to what washing my face meant so I said this might be a great book just by the title, so I bought it. I never realized when I opened it, I would never be able to put it down. It spoke to me so well. Everything, well almost everything, was so similiar to my life I couldn’t believe that this nice young lady had gone through all that and still managed to be a great women waking up everyday helping people with her wisdom and lending a helping hand.
  • A part in the book that really hit home for me was Chapter 15: I Will Never Get Past This- when she talked about her family. Not being as close as she wanted to be after the tragedy just trying to salvage what was left of her relationships and picking up the peices and moving forward in church and counseling, which is always the best medicine. I cried through the whole chapter.
  • One thing she stressed so much in her book about is being happy with who you are. It doesnt matter what you didnt accomplish or who hurt you in your past, you are responsible for your own happiness. Never let others believe you are never good enough to try new things or pick up where you left off with years ago. Always try to be you and be happy for you not anyone else. I realized that in trying to make others happy all at once, I have made myself unhappy. I have decided to run away from toxic or negative things and let others be unhappy by themselves and take care of me first. Be there after I am taken care of then console others.
  • 5- star rating from me for original content, very personable and uplifting!

Looking forward to reading her other book:

Girl, Stop Apoligizing

Flat Stanley….visits Florida 2019

  Hey everyone, so for the last couple of weeks, I have been working on a project called Stanley.  Stanley was introduced to me by my niece who is 7 years old.  Her class was given the assignment to send one of their family members in another state Stanley to visit them and participate in activities.  Meet Flat Stanley….
  Yes, he is Flat! Some of you may remember the story of Flat Stanley and how he became flat.  He has done so many adventures in his series of books. Check out his books at Flat Stanley Books.
  I decided for this project to make his adventure into a PowerPoint Presentation…which was such a great way to put everything together.  Below Flat Stanley can tell you about his trip to Florida!!
