TOSS A COIN TO YOUR OUTLIER

The Witcher appeared everywhere on social media and real-life: Geralt's bath scene, toss your coin to your witcher song, Jaskier and Geralt's bromance, and conversations with people. I avoided watching this show mainly because I am not a fan of shows; I prefer movies because they're shorter and less of a commitment. Also, this show kept being compared to Game of Thrones; I don't hate the show, but I'm not a die-hard fan. 

QUARANTINE MUSIC MONDAY

Hi everyone! I've been cross-stitching my biggest project to date, so I've been listening to a lot of music and watching videos to keep me entertained as I stitch. 

QUARANTINE 2 | WHAT I AM READING & BOOK HAUL

Hello everybody! How are you? I hope you are well. I'm not gonna repeat all the descriptions and instructions people have written and said. I want y'all to know I moved my desk chair somewhere, so I am sitting on top of a trashcan while typing this post on my desk. All about them cold openings here on my blog!

QUARANTINE | POST I

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is well. A long time has passed since my last post. Now that classes are online, I have a little more time to pursue hobbies and read. Hopefully, there will be a book review soon; I recently placed an order for some new books! My spending has been out of control because of social-distancing. What are you guys doing? What are you watching? Drop some recommendations in the comments. I'd love to catch up with you guys. 

MY ENGLISH COURSE HAS THE BEST READING, SO FAR

In college, you're bound to read some the most boring, asinine, and confounding pieces within the few hours you have left in the day, understand it, and discuss it in class. On a rare occasion, you read something enjoyable. I am thrilled with the turn of events that landed me in my current English course because the readings are riveting! The syllabus, so far, required me to read some short stories; in the future, I will finally be reading Macbeth, despite my abhorrence for Shakespeare, and I will finish Lolita. I need to buy a bucket and keep it within reach when reading!

LATE TO THE MOVIES and to finishing this post

Bohemian Rhapsody
I didn't watch BR in theaters when it came out because I wanted to cry in the privacy of my own home, which I did, twice. I like Queen, I am not familiar with their entire discography, only their famous hits, but I do love what I've heard. Unfortunately, I didn't have the opportunity to listen to them while Freddie was alive, like how I had a chance to listen to Bowie while he was alive. Their music left an impact on my life that I was unaware of. When I was in elementary school, I would do the stomp-clap rhythm from We Will Rock You in the cafeteria, I would sing "we are the champions," and I didn't find out that was Queen until a while later. 

I LOVE PRIDE AND PREJUDICE MOST ARDENTLY

My love for Mr. Darcy the series was reignited after watching the television series (a.k.a the best adaptation.) This is my justification. 

THE MOST IMPORTANT REVIEW OF 2020



The Queen of Nothing
by Holly Black
Little, Brown and Company | November 19, 2019

     He will be the destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne.
     Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to. Jude learned that lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.
      Now, as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is left reeling from Cardan's betrayal. She bides her time, determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.
      Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines, she becomes ensnared in the conflict's bloody politics.
     And when a terrible curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity...
