The Finn Factor by Rachel Bailey REVIEW 

Title: The Finn Factor by Rachel Bailey

Rate: 4/5 🌟’s

Review: I really enjoyed reading The Finn Factor. It was really cute at times and yes a little frustrating but not much. It was frustrating because of the situations that kept setting the characters apart. It has nothing to do with the characters at all which is beautiful.

I love all the characters in this story, especially Harvey, he’s funny and adorable. Not once did I want any of the characters to leave. This book is 206 pages long (in the ebook at least) and it didn’t feel like it dragged at all. Of all the books I’ve been trying to finish lately, this is the book to finally break that streak (thank God!!). Every time I put the book down because work or acting got in the way, I found that when I had nothing to do I was actually reaching for my nook, which hasn’t happened in a while. This book actually drew me in and I couldn’t stop reading.

It’s sort of a quick read, really cute, and I just love everything about it. I purchased it for nook not too long ago and I think I got it discounted thru bookbub, so if you guys follow BookBub or are subscribed, hopefully this book is still available for the cheap price of $0.99.

This is a short post but just wanted to get this review in before I forget haha. Have a great day, or night, depending on where you live. Hope you enjoyed these thoughts and such.

Hello everyone!!

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything but I am happy to announce I am back!!

I have been busy with acting lately but I have finally found a window to write another post. And what an exciting post this is. Now, considering I’m behind on social media and feel like I’m the first to know about things when really I’m the last to know, you guys might have already heard about this but eff it. I’m announcing it anyway in case any of you are like me and haven’t heard anything about it yet.

First news I would love to bring up is…drumroll… The Shatter Me Series!!! Yes I know the book series ended a while ago but it has just been announced that Tahereh Mafi (the author of the series for those of you who don’t know) has 3 NEW books to add to the series. That’s right people, the Shatter Me series will no longer be a trilogy but a…hexology?? A 6-book series, let’s just say that. It is said that the next books coming out will be continuing off from book 3 (Ignite Me). So it is not a spin-off but a continuing-off…I should stop inventing words…a sequel as some may say.

The book will come in 2 different POV’s which are Juliette’s POV and Warner’s (😍) POV. I cannot wait for the series to continue but unfortunately we have to wait until 2018 for the next book to come out. But I do have to be grateful to the writers of the TV series for asking Tahereh Mafi a question even she didn’t know the answer to which led her to reread her series and realize that Juliette’s journey had just begun. And thus people, the continuation of the Shatter Me series is born!! (\^_^/) 🌈

For more info on this amazing news, here is the link:

Also, for those of you who aren’t aware either, yes, you have read correctly, Shatter Me is becoming a TV series so all you actresses out there, my claws are out and may the odds be ever in your favor ✌🏻👆🏻 (pretend that’s one hand holding up 3 fingers). My heart may belong to Celaena Sardothien so you girls still may have a chance with Juliette because I’m not giving up Celaena for anything (even tho I’m not blonde, I will fight).

Here is a link to more info on the Shatter Me TV series for those of you who are interested in that info:


Yes I had to write it in all caps because it’s so exciting!!! Here is the link to the exercpt. If you don’t care about the questionare, like me, because you’re too excited for the excerpt then scroll to the bottom of the article and you will find what we have been waiting for. Well part of what we’ve all been waiting for.

That’s all for now folks. Comment and subscribe (or follow, I still don’t know how this thing works) and have a precious day!! ☀️

“The Witches Of The Glass Castle” [Book Review]

Title: “The Witches Of The Glass Castle” by Gabriella Lepore

Rating: ☆☆☆☆.4/5☆’s

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Romance 

Published: April 18th 2017 


Mia’s life is thrown through a loop when she discovers her family secret — that she and her brother Dino are witches. After they are sent away to study their craft, they begin down a path that will change their lives forever.

Suddenly thrust into a world where handsome warriors command the power of nature and people’s thoughts and actions can be manipulated at will, Mia and Dino struggle to navigate their own allegiances and do what they know to be right when everything around them seems beyond their control.

My Thoughts and Review:

           “The Witches Of The Glass Castle” is actually the first book I read this month. With so much going on I am SO GLAD I PICKED IT UP!! The cover you guys is GORGEOUS!!! love the design and color. You are pulled in buy it. So A+ on the cover!! I didn’t even know I needed a witch fix. Gabriella Lepore loves to write witch theme books and I LOVE IT! Her writing is so easy to get into. I love the way she writes when it comes to the bonds of family. The relationship between Dino and her Aunt may seem a little harsh at times but they understand each other and they love each other and they know it. I thought it was beautiful. Her aunt would kill for her boy. LITERALLY!

          The romance was not rushed and I love when the romance is not instant but it grows and that is what we have here. I will say it gets cheesy sometimes but it goes with our characters. The sibling relationship between Dino and Mia is a little wacky but there is a scene that I loved between them that showed how much Dino cared for his sister. Then we had surprises that I honestly did not see coming. I enjoyed the characters and the magic. I LOVED the HUNTERS! one in particular and I need more! The way it ended was not enough cause things were verly getting started!!!

        Really enjoyed this read. The magic and romance were my favorite parts and need to know what happens next!!

       Both books are out! So go get your witch fix cause TRUST ME you need it! Gabriella Lepore knows her craft.

No Sleep Podcast

Hey everyone, 

With school and life and everything my reading time has been cut down to a minimum. I know there are audiobooks but its not the same and at times I can’t connect with the book. Only one book has been a success in audiobook and that is “The Call” which I will post later on about that experience. 

Todays post is about a podcast called ” No Sleep” I have been addicted listening to them!! I love their stories. All the stories are from this site called RedIt. I had read one from there once and it gave me goosebumps but I LOVED IT! Now I listen to them as well and it is creepy good!! 

Different stories each time. Of course not all of them are good but MOST are. These are stories created by people and they post them on Redit and some have even been published. I personally, love how the run the podcast. They have different people each time telling the story. They put eerie music and sound effects that you feel you are watching a movie. They really go all out to make you feel the feeling of “No Sleep”. One really gets pulled in. I have been listening to them and started from their very first episode.

I HIGHLY recommend you guys listen them. Especially if you are like me and want to read but can’t cause life and all and you can’t quite connect to audio books at times, then this is the next best thing. If you have and Ipod/Iphone/Ipad just search them up in your podcast app. You’ll find them there! or for people w/ samsung or other devices you can check them out here:

No sleep Site: 


This are scary/creepy/horror type stories. So no lovey dovey and sometimes NO happy endings. So if you into that and are okay with that then GO CHECK THEM OUT CAUSE ITS AWESSOME!! 

Thank You for reading guys

Until next Time (^^)/ 


Bookish Themed VI

Hi guys,

Sorry I skipped last weeks Bookish merch. Midterms, tests and studying. Just so much and its still not over 😫….but I can manage to post today😜! So with nothing more to add here is today’s shop!!

Shop: Wick and Fable 

This is an Etsy shop as well and guess what it has bookish candles and wait for it……TEA!!! I have always been a tea person not much coffee. Don’t get me wrong I do take my now and then much needed caffeine jist but will always turn for tea. More my style. 🍵

Wick and fable was having a sale and I might of gone just a little crazy……..(^^)>. Just a little. I bought a couple of bookish candles and got a bonus. 💙

It came in there own custom made box. Which I think looks amazing and adds personality to their company. Just look at it.👀

My order was done during a horrible weather time and was delayed because of a snow storm. The good thing is the owner would update us in our packages and would help us out if we needed it.

Great service all the way! I recommend you guys go check her stuff. You will fall in love with her products.   


As 8oz candles I had wanted “Hello, Witchling” and “Rowan” which are bookish candles inspired by the TOG( Throne Of Glass Series). As a bonus for the March Special I got a “Ever After” 4oz. in honor of Beauty and The Beast. Don’t they all look so pretty together!! My favorite though from the three is “Hello, Witchling” cause it literally smells like berries and wine. IT SMELL SOOO GOOD!!! 💗

As for my 4oz. The tins were on special which I am sad to say they don’t sell the tins no more only jars now. I got all of these!!! Currently burning the “Stars Hallow” candle, inspired by my all time favorite show Gilmore Girls.

I do not regret buying none. I do regret though not buying more when the special was in place.


(Pictures above are mine. The tea picture I got from her etsy shop. I chose a Ravenclaw tea cause I’M A REAVENCLAW!!! CAW CAW🖤💙🦅….I know geeky🤓 lol)

Ravenclaw Loose Tea Blend - Earl Grey, Vanilla, Bergamot, Cornflower Petals | Harry Potter Inspired

This is a new edition to her shop or at least it use to be there but then she took it off but now it is back there again. I have not bought any teas from her but I plan to get some soon a long w/some Wintersong inspired candles. I am happy customer and share with you guys my buys. 

Go check out her shop. I have her link above. Hope you guys like this post. Next time I might actually talk about Supernatural and it won’t be candles (>.<).

Thank You for reading guys! Until next time (^^)/
