Merry Christmas

Well I've completed 1 quarter at BYU-I through the Pathway's and I loved it so far. Next up is math and the Book Of Mormon class. I enjoyed so much doing the Becoming project. I've been working at Macy's lately. I've also been working on the Family Reunion with my cousin. We also lost my Grandpa Bradshaw this past year.
Kids are all doing well and getting bigger every day. My daughter finished up her Personal Progress for Young Women and will be getting that award soon. I will be having 2 girls going to Girls Camp this next year.

We have all been busy with church, school and life.

Wishing your family a very merry Christmas

Mini reviews- Dumplin, What we saw, Uprooted , Invasion of the Tearling, Dreamland

The feelings and best book I have read so far. I loved slight romance and the girls friendship with the other outcasts and doing a pageant. She grows up during this book and has even more confidence.

Book Review= A
There is a party and Kate gets a ride home from Ben, who happens to have had a crush on her . She is also pretty drunk and she left the party early. This is the after math of a rape of someone she knows and the video from the party. I loved the Geology references and how there was good discussion about consent and dress & alcohol. I loved that Kate had issues and even discussed this with her brother about slut shaming girls. Seriously this book was amazing. It was a small town so this also brings up the football team members & girl involved and their reactions to school & town. Amazing book

Book Review = B+
OMG this book had a strong female who didn't always fit in and got dirty. She was picked by the dragon, and when danger happens to her town. She does all that she can. I even adored the girls friendship and there was some romance. This book lived up to the hype and easily my favorite book of 2015. I will recommend this book and I could see the Beauty/Beast aspect :) This is one book to reread again.

um nope. present day mixed in with keslea world. issues with red queen. hardly any fetch in book. more history of how this new world came to be. but there seemed to issues brought up ie beauty, cutting, pregnancy , utopia, socialism, books. I also didn't like her-- she has changed so much over this book and this isn't all of it. She gets pretty. UGH I wished that I liked it more or even her at all. I am done with this series.

I wanted to like this story and romance but this book seemed to be more about revenge and very hate filled. I do think that this book was different in that the narrator   talked to the reader. I did enjoy the romance between both people and at separate times. I just wished that I loved it more , but it was hate filled for me.
