April Book Haul!

Hey guys. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend. Recently I went to Barnes and Noble. I had a gift card and  went to town in there, purchasing a good number of books. Of course I also bought a few books on Amazon, so this seem like the perfect time to create a book haul video!  Let me know what books you recently purchased and enjoy the video 🙂

Lets go Down to the River to Pray

“For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.” Isaiah44:3

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way!

O sisters let’s go down
Let’s go down, come on down
O sisters let’s go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ way
And who shall wear the robe & crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O brothers let’s go down
Let’s go down, come on down
Come on brothers, let’s go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O fathers let’s go down
Let’s go down, come on down
O fathers let’s go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O mothers let’s go down
Come on down, don’t you wanna go down?
Come on mothers, let’s go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O sinners, let’s go down
Let’s go down, come on down
O sinners, let’s go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way.

13 Reason’s Why Review

First off. Holy snowballs Batman! What an amazing show! I was binge watching each episode daily. Sure I’m a little held back from writing my novel, but I was entertained beyond words. 13 Reason’s Why was a heavy, but an enlighten show, so lets get into this blog review 🙂

 

 

(Warning: this show has some major explicit content, so I’d advice not to view this show with children.)

 

Seventeen year old Hanna Baker created mix tapes going over her 13 reason’s why she committed suicide. These tapes are sort of loaned between the people who caused her the most drama which lead her to ending her life. Eventually the tapes are given to Clay an introverted boy who loved Hannah very much, yet was afraid to ask her out. Big mistake Clay! Unlike the other students who lied and do everything they can to shrug their sins under a rug, Clay tries to help defend Hannah and end the horror which goes on at their school.

 

13 Reason’s Why is basically a show dealing with suicide, rape, drugs, peer pressure and all of that jazz, yet this series was beautiful. This show brought realistic topics into view. It depicts scene’s which are  difficult to view. It gets us thinking.  The actors and actress’s were  striking in their roles.  Hannah’s struggles are easily seen, yet no one really took the time to care. We always hope for the best instead of taking the time to make things better. The students who basically ended her life hope life would go on, yet how does it after something so damaging occurs?

Stuff like this is happening all around us, yet no one really takes the time to try to end it. We may hear a local news report about some teen who committed suicide, because some awful things happen to them. We appear sadden by the news, yet what does anyone actually do to stop it? Will a bokeh  of roses set on a table with cards to a dead girl matter?  Some actually pretend it’s no big deal which is truly idiotic in my opinion.

Show’s like this make me thankful I was home-schooled, yet I’m always intrigued by them. The things that go on within those halls. If only the walls could talk. We shouldn’t hide our scars. No one is perfect. Instead we should reveal our flaws. Open up to someone who is eager to help. We also shouldn’t ignore people. The problem they’re having could have something to do with a comment we made or something even worse.

 

I encourage those who read this review to check out the series on Netflix. Also pick up a  copy of the book if you come across it( I bought my copy yesterday off Amazon.) Thank you for reading this post. Remember that someone does care about you. Rest in piece Hannah Baker.

Newbie Booktube Tag!Plus Introduction

March Wrap-Up!

Greetings,

March was an excellent month. I went on a journey to Hollywood Studios. Sometime this month I will be headed over to Magic Kingdom which is the best park of all in my opinion.  March was a pretty good month of reading. I was able to read two books and start in one, but i never got around to finishing it. Here are the three novels I read from March.

March was also a bit sad for two completely different reasons. A couple weeks ago I visited my grandparents home for the last time. The house has a new family caring for her now, so it was nice to have a little family gathering to say good bye to the ole place. My feature photo is of my grandpa’s bedroom. Duck Dynasty and Grimm have come to their conclusions. Both of those series brought me so much joy over the last few years. It’s amazing how attached we get to television, yet we do. I hope the best for the cast and crew of both shows. I have my fingers crossed Grimm will eventually have a spin off and the Robertson clan have a few holiday specials from time to time.

As April begins i have some exciting news. I have the plot for my novel figured out. I have been tweaking and have found an idea I’m comfortable with. I cannot wait to have it written and published to share with all of you. In other news I’m beginning a Booktube channel. For years I’ve thought of starting a Youtube channel, so I’m very excited to get started. It’s amazing what doors God opens for us.

 

That wraps up March. Hopefully I’m not fooled in April. Enough about me what were you up to in March? Did you read any good books? If so let me know in the comment section below. Cheers!
