Currently Reading Always Never Yours
My reading lately has been serious and heavy and I needed a little break with something fun. So far, that’s just what I’m getting. Reminds me a bit of The Duff but better so far with less serious family drama.
P.S. Ready Player Two releases tomorrow!!! I’ve been warning my sons and husband that I love them but don’t know them tomorrow. Need help? Ask someone else. Sometimes a mama just needs a break especially during a pandemic where you’ve never spent more continuous time with your family.
The Girl in the Mirror is about two identical twin sisters named Summer and Iris. When their father died, he left behind his will that stated that the first child to bear the heir will receive hundred million dollars. The race is on. Iris is called to Thailand to help her sister and brother in law out. Summer and Iris sail the yacht and on one night Summer goes missing. Iris takes over Summer’s life and tries to get pregnant.
I was so bored with this. It talked a lot of about sailing. I really disliked Iris and her narrative. The twists were so obvious.
My first physical draft of my poetry collection?! 😳
Sellaamm. Bugün çok uzun bir aradan sonra online derslere girdim :(. İlk gün için berbattı bu yüzden konuşmak hiç istemiyorum belki yarın konuşurum. Onun dışında ne yaptın dersen yine günlük rutin.. Şu an yaklaşık 3 saattir karantina 3 ü okuduğum için hislerimi ve duygularımı kaybettim. O kadar duygu yaşadım ki ashdhslmdldhd. Her neyse öyle işte, bugünlük bu kadar seni çok seviyorum güzelim. ❤️

Can you guess the story?
I really love it when I discover a book that covers major real life events that I can easily connect with.
“Barely Functional Adult: It Will All Make Sense Eventually” by Meichi Ng is a witty and comical novel that is part memoir and part comic strip. It is a collection of illustrated short stories that depict the best and worst of adult life and the joy and fear that we face when learning to navigate it’s difficulties. These laugh out loud illustrations tackles topics such as impostor syndrome, therapy, friendship, letting go of exes, finding your purpose in life, getting older, anxiety, and the stress we encounter in finding the right job. This novel is filled with humor and honesty. It is a reminder that no matter who you are or what struggles you’re dealing with, you are not alone.
I am in complete awe of this amazing book. I mean, I literally finished it in one day and cannot stop gushing about it. While reading, I felt like the author and I were the same person. Every chapter was accurate and 100% relatable. There were moments when I had to pause and take in every detail of what I was reading. This book sure as hell hit close to home. It was scary how much of a connection I made with every topic discussed in each chapter. The stories that the author shared are insightful and full of wisdom. The graphic illustrations made the book very enjoyable. From the moment I sat down to read, I knew I was in for an exciting ride. One minute I was laughing so much and the next I was in my feelings.
Time to finally start this beauty 🌙
I can’t be the only one who loves displaying her hardback books without the dust covers? I love to see the spines and the classic beauty of a hardback book.

The Vanguard is the action-packed tale of rebellion against injustice with a whole vibe like Power or Straight Outta Compton meets Vikings or Game of Thrones!
When weapons technology is knocked back to the Dark Ages and America faces collapse & the president sends everyone but the elite…into mass incarceration and slavery! With modern weapons extinct, the bow and arrow replace the AR-15, and it’s back to swords, spears, axes and shields as modern day knights arise, but they ride for the hood with swag like Ghost, Doughboy, Bishop, and Sincere! It’s a sci-fi/fantasy book with the soul of a hood movie!
“Okay. Even though dystopians/sci-fi/fantasies aren’t my top genre, let’s just say this book gave me LIFE in many ways. Unapologetic blackness/language, scientific, nerdy hood niggas, and a revolution against white supremacy, oppression, and martial law was super interesting to read about from a fictional standpoint.”
