On The Daily #36

Hey everyone, I’m not feeling the best today. And there isn’t much I have to say either. Although, I did have have a nice memory come back to me yesterday. If you have a friend or family member that you’ve had great memories with, you know that looking back on them, it can make everything just a little bit nicer. For myself, it was my sister, and a song that we always used to sing together was Out of My Head by Fastball. The words themselves didn’t mean much, but the music did along with the memories.

Take some time out of your day to reminisce about past memories that you enjoyed very much. I tend to remember a lot of the bad ones, so it’s really refreshing to look at the good ones.

I hope this Tuesday is treating you right!

Much love, Chloe ❤

If you you read my first post from early this morning, you know that the book I’m reading for March is Winter by Marissa Meyer. If you haven’t read it, go over and check it out to see the book I recommended!

As for my TBR reading, I wanted to let you guys know that I will only be having one book for my TBR each month. There are various reasons and the first one is because I can be a slow reader at times. Half the time when I’m reading, I don’t always understand everything so I have to go back and read it slowly so everything processes clearly. The second reason being is that books are expensive. If you’re an avid reader, you know the struggle. And as of right now, I’ve been having a little bit of struggle with money due to book sales of my own.

All aside, I love to read, but I want to really want to enjoy what I read. And know that you don’t have to go out and buy a book. There are tons and tons of blogs that post stories everyday and it’s nice to support them as well 🙂

I hope this Monday is a nice start to your week!

Much love, Chloe

TBR and Book Recommendations # 3

With March being just around the corner, it’s the time again to talk about my TBR and book recommendations for March! It’ll be short again this month, and I’m going to be explaining on an upcoming On The Daily post as to why. Anyways, for the book I’ll be reading in March is Winter by Marissa Meyer. This is the final book in the Lunar Chronicles with characters Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter. I can’t wait to finish up this series and I think this book will really give me a good sense of what the Lunar world is like. And I think it’ll be a good book to end the series on as well.

For my recommendations, I’ve never really have read a book that was more based on space and very futuristic on the sci fi side. But I have read a handful of dystopian and girl power books. The book I’ll be recommending is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Not only is this book about a girl who is trying to start revolution, it is a trilogy. There have been a lot of book about girls taking the world in their hands in a good way for the past few years recently. I haven’t read a lot of them, but the ones I have read are pretty good. And this book is up with one of the tops. Now only is it about a girl fighting for what’s right, but it’s about royalty and powers beyond belief. It’s such a good book and I definitely recommend reading it soon, because I believe there is some talk about it being made into a movie in the near future.

I hope you guys have enjoyed my March TBR and book recommendations! And as always, keep on reading!

Dreams are crazy and a lot of the time make no sense as to why you would ever dream them. Up above I linked a small article talking about our dreams and if they do have a meaning. Lately I’ve been having really weird dreams, so I don’t know if I think they all have a meaning, but it’s definitely interesting to read up on.

Today’s post will only be an update about my writing circumstances and what’s going on. To start off with, I haven’t had the most inspiration or desire to write the story I’d began about two months ago. I’ve been trying really hard to get something out, but I just started to force myself to write the story and that’s not the key to writing well. In the future I want to make that story bigger than I could imagine it to be, thus I have to do the best on it as I can. So I am going to be taking a break from that story and working on a new one. Since the beginning of February I’ve been putting a lot of happiness and self love out to anyone who’s willing to take it. I would love to incorporate that into something bigger and better, and the only place I can think is in book form.

I’m not going to give away too much because I want it to be a surprise for everyone. I never ever imagined myself writing something like this, but I think it’s going to turn out well. So look out for some updates here and there about it!

I hope everyone’s Friday is as good as ever!

Much love, Chloe ❤

Life Talk #8

Happy Friday, ya’ll! For some reason when I sat down at my desk this morning, I wanted nothing but to blast my music and drink my juice – and that’s just what I did! Of course I jumped into work after a couple of songs.

As I have mentioned that music is therapy for me before, but if you want to get into a super positive mood, definitely listen to music that really gets you going.

To get onto it, this week has been an up and down kind of week. In the morning I would be feeling on the groggy side and then at nine at night, I would want to go out into town. In return, I had to pay for that in my sleeping schedule. And for some odd reason I’ve been feeling sick in the afternoons and I came to the conclusion that it was from stress. The stress is from a number of things, but no more talk about that. A little tip from me to you: if you want to not stress over something even more, forget about it. There’s use in overworking your brain when you could be using it for other ambitions. If I’ve learned anything from this week, it’s for sure that. I find myself almost everyday worrying about something new that’s impractical. So I replace the nonsense with joy, and my joy for this week was journaling. I had forgotten about journaling for a hot minute, but I’m right back into it. If you are creative and find peace in crafts, I highly suggest doing it. For myself, it really calms down the nerves.

I hope your week was well and you found your silver lining that was waiting for you on this beautiful Friday!

As always, much love, Chloe

Wisdom means to choose now what will make sense later. I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be, to inspire me and not terrify me.”

  • Tracee Ellis Ross

 

I hope that quote brightened your thinking process up as much as it did for me!

Last night was a little rough for myself. To begin with, I tried again and again to fall asleep at a decent time, but ended up going to sleep around 11:30 – 12:00. I used to always take pm medicine to help with that but I haven’t remembered to grab any for a while. It’s probably good for me not to in the long run anyways. After that came one of the worst nightmares I have ever had. It had to deal with something that was in my past a long time ago. And for the first time I think I knew what being scared and afraid of a real life situation felt like. Sure here and there I may feel like I’m scared, but I think that’s just a pit in my stomach worrying. My situation isn’t even that bad, so for those who are in danger  and feel scared for their life on a regular basis, I feel so bad for you. And the ones who are, probably will never see this and never truly know that there are people out there that sympathise for you.

As usual, I’m rambling again. But if you ever do feel scared, please make sure to have someone or something there that you know will calm you down to let your know that everything will be alright in the end. I’ve said this in many previous posts, but I’ll always say it – in every bad situation comes a silver lining. To me, in order to live happy, you have to remind yourself of that.

Much love, Chloe ❤

Being a writer, I need to have some sort of my own inspiration. And for me, it’s to look at something, specifically pictures of all sorts. For the past few years I’ve been collecting many pictures that give me that inspiration needed in the right places.

I have linked down below to a special place I keep all of those pictures. Feel free to take a long look at them and maybe you’ll find your own inspiration from there on as well!

Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Synopsis:

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

 

Red Queen is one of those books that I will fall in love with the characters again and again. This sci-fi fantasy included main characters Mare, Princes Cal and Marven, and Queen Elara.

This is a total rags to riches kind of story, but not the way you may think. Like in my last book review, I don’t want to give away a whole lot, but Mare is much much more powerful than everyone believes her to be. She is living a lie yet not a lie at the same time.

This book is another one of the most recent popular dystopian sci-fi fantasies where our hero/heroine is the world’s leader, hope, and all they have left. And even though each time the main character does not think of himself/herself as this life savior, they end of being the best they can be because that’s all they have left in them. Even though, I read a handful of these types of books, they’re my favorite nonetheless. And this book hit the spot! I like it because of the action, numerous ups and downs, and the fact that it’s a constant page turner.

As per usual, this book made me love and hate the characters again and again and again. It made me feel how powerful certain characters are and they’re personalitlies really hit me in the face, but in a good way. But there was one thing that I loved throughout the book. There was a character who said, “Anyone can betray anyone.” I love this quote so much! It’s one of the most true things I’ve ever read. Even though the book is fiction, it applies to our world and people so much, especially now.

If you’re a lover of the dystopian worlds, I definitely recommend this book! I haven’t yet to read the sequel, but I’m sure I will in the next few months. Comment down below if you read this book and your thoughts. Keep on reading!
