Review Rampage | Contemporary Madness, Dragons(!!), and Disappointing Time Travelling Trope

 

review-rampage1-contemporary-dragons-and-disappointing-1

Okay, I’m going to be honest here: I’ve been in a blogging slump for a while. It’s not the reading, and it’s not designing the graphics because God knows I spend way too many hours perfecting them. It’s just the dang reviewing that has me in a knot. I just can’t get in that mindset of critiquing and analyzing. I think I do that in my English class more than enough times that I’ve resulted to just wanting to enjoy the books I read for fun instead of peeling the text layer by layer. It’s not like when I review I don’t enjoy the book, I do!! And, it’s not like I don’t bring in themes, metaphors, and character development into my reviews every once in a while (I think I actually talk about character development a lot.) But school and blogging are blending together and it’s getting me more stressed than usual. BLOGGING IS MY RELEASE!! So, until things relax a bit in my English class, know that I’m forcing myself to sit down and review a book to post here, or I’ve gotten to the point where the stress is just too much and reviewing is the only way OUT of this ball of stress that I’ve become.

(How many times will I say stress in this post???)

Let’s get started shall we?

#BeforeTheFlood

beforethefloodToday is my birthday, but that’s not important. It’s relevant because when people who love and care about you wish you a happy birthday, something so small, and so simple, you tend to just appreciate life a little more. For me, today being it my birthday reminded me of the life I have, and caused me to wonder about my future, and the future of mankind. This lead me to watch this eye-opening documentary.

This is a call to everyone who reads this, watch the documentary, Before the Flood and join Leonardo DiCaprio as he explores, unearths, and addresses climate change all over the world, and how we, as human beings, have destroyed our home planet, and how we can hopefully being it back to life.

You can watch it for free on YouTube, but I’ve heard rumours it will be removed after today, whether the link I provided you above is no longer available after today; buy it, rent it, it will still be available for you to watch it.

It would be a damn shame that you don’t watch this empowering and enlightening documentary about the future of our world.

What’s so interesting about this documentary is that Leonardo DiCaprio was just as unaware of what is going on as almost every single one of us in the world. He had the means to explore and to connect with people who can tell us what is actually going on so he and us, can know more about the fate of our environment.

This is a gift. He used his resources to give us the answers, and the ability to make a difference for our future children, to our loved ones, and to our home. Take it. Appreciate it. And change from it.

I ask you to watch and to share. To be educated and to hope for change.

November 2016: Most Anticipated Releases

most-anticipated-releases-nov2016

Alas, this is one day late…HOW DARE I?! 😂 My birthday is in a few days and I’m so ready to have a book-buying spree. SO. READY. It really doesn’t take much for me to be happy. 😜 My birthday celebrations are pretty low-key; just a small meal with the family and CAKE! (Can’t have a birthday without cake!! 🙌👌❤️)

This month’s releases isn’t too bad when it comes releases but it could always be better. My TBR had no trouble increasing though, so there’s that. Why can’t books release all at the same time?? Actually, that is a horrible idea. I would be bankrupt in minutes, and I would literally be drowning in books because I need time to process and mourn before starting another book.

Anywho, these are my Most Anticipated for November!
