Hello lovely readers!
I have been MIA since last week but in all honesty my life has been pretty blah. I started school on Wednesday and so far It seems like I’m going to enjoy all my classes, but we shall see.
It’s MIMM, so I figured its the perfect opportunity to share an update on the most marvelous thing happening in my life currently.
Yesterday, the hubby and I went by our house to check out the progress and I wanted to share those pictures with you.
My bathtub! It looks gross right now, but this is going to be an awesome master bathroom, I’m stoked.
This was taken inside the masterbath, and that big space through the frame is our master closet. Yay!
The living room, they have installed our fireplace, sweet.
This is something I’m pretty excited about, our living room ceiling is going to have a really cool design.
This is what our backyard currently looks like. Lovely right?
The last picture I snapped is from in the living room. That wood frame is the makings of our kitchen bar and the windows are at our dining room facing the backyard.
So that’s progress! I am getting more excited each week that passes. I can’t wait to move in.
Over the weekend I also finished Beautiful Creatures.
I really enjoyed this book although it was on the long side, 563 pages.
I was able to pick up the second book, Beautiful Darknes at the library on Saturday, but when I started reading it I just wasn’t feeling it. I really like Beautiful Creatures as a stand alone novel. The story in my opinion isn’t strong enough for multiple novels. I’m not saying I wont read the other ones, but I just wasn’t sooo into it that I just had to read the next one to see what happens next. I felt more compelled to read a book about different characters rather then read another book right away about Lena and Ethan, which are the main characters in Beautiful Creatures.
I still want to see the movie on Valentine’s Day because like I said I did in fact enjoy the book. I just needed a change in pace for a bit.
So instead I found myself picking up the other book I got from the library on Saturday. Omg, this book sucked me in! I read sooo much yesterday its crazy. I will most definitely finish this book today and its 435 pages long.
Oh yes, the title? Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. It’s a bit different then other books I’ve read, that’s probably why I’m enjoying it so much.
The story centers around Clara, who is an angel-blood, meaning she is part angel. The novel follows her life as she discovers her purpose and what she as an angel must fufill. It’s not a religious book in anyway. It’s a young adult novel and just has a story that intrigued me. I found out there are two more books and I definitely want them! The library doesn’t carry either of them so I’ll have to buy. No worries, this book is definitely worth it. Highly recommend!
Well I hope you all have a fabulous week if I fail to write again.
-Anyone read a good book lately?
