Book Reviews

I’ve always done book reviews, but never really for a group or anything. Well last year, I set an intention on joining a book club. You see I have always and I mean always loved reading. My amazon kindle has hoards of books that I need to read. My average book reads a year is 15-25. So you can say ,it was natural I wanted to find a place to discuss my book readings.

I secretly would follow the Oprah Book club. That led me to the B&N book club, which led me to Hello Sunshine Reads. These are all phenomenal read groups btw, and I still mostly follow a few of them. But I wanted a more melanated feel for my books, and I found Mocha Girls Read. AH! A place that not only read a vast genre of books like myself, but also readers looked like me! SUCESS! You guys know that wasn’t enough, I wanted a book club I could go to in Houston, and the ones that are out there were there, I just did not know how to find them. So alas! Mocha Girls Read created an online chapter! I am so happy I joined, not only have I found a home, I have found a place to do my reviews! I now have an Instagram page dedicated to my reads called @shoedooo.reads ! Feel free to follow me, I will use it to post reviews what I am reading and follow various readers/authors/lovers of books (not just the melanated ones). I also post my reviews on Goodreads as well. So stay tuned to me posting my reviews here!

Bookclubs I secretly and not so secretly follow:

  • Reese’s Book Club

If you read, what are some club or groups that you know of? Comment below!

It’s My Birthday!

It’s My Birthday! It’s my birthday. 28 today I’m in 1st place. I have received tons of well wishes and Instagram posts from my friends. I feel loved. Thanks to everyone I appreciate you all! I made it to 28! I am happy with where I am at in my present life and I am looking forward to the new experiences I will embark on. I have a career, I have ambition, I have a 401k! I am blessed to take vacations! I love to workout! I enjoy being a pet owner! I love the Lord! I am just grateful. Thursday I will be going to Vegas  and as they say these days I’m going to TURN UP! Hopefully, I won’t wake up in a new Bugatti, because the way my bank account is set up….. I owe Sallie Mae. LOL.

 

On a fitness note. I tried a new workout yesterday and got my heart rate all the way up to 185! Wow! I also broke the machine but that didn’t stop me! lol try it out if you dare!
