Hi!! Welcome to My Little Section of the Internet! I love to read cause I love to learn!
I'm a Life Coach, youtube personality, family life researcher, photographer, and of course a reader!
Follow me & tell me your favorite books!
In getting to know me, you'll find that I can easily become obsessive over things that I love.
When I first watched Titanic, I became OBSESSED with the film. Watching it EVERY Sunday for over 7 years (not even exaggerating here)-memorizing EVERY line (three hours of dialogue is A LOT to remember).
I became obsessed with Leonardo DiCaprio and then watched every movie he had been in up to Titanic (and my obsession still continues). I bought books on him and learned his middle name (Wilhelm), his date of birth (11-11-74), his parents names (Irmelin and George) and the inspiration behind his name (While his mother was pregnant with him, she visited an art gallery in Italy and she was looking at a painting of Leonardo da Vinci and it was the first time she felt him kick and thus-he chose his name! lol).
And now...since I have found Booklikes, I have visited nearly every day for the past two weeks-multiple times a day-spending hours exploring, following, commenting, shelving books, and more.
And last night....I dreamed about shelving books on BookLikes....
The obsession has begun.
Update: The radio show WILL be happening! :) I've decided to go with using BlogTalkRadio & iTunes as my hosting site to produce the book & film review radio show....I am currently choosing a name and I hope to start recording tomorrow. :) So be on the lookout! :)
Wow. I haven't finished the book but I had to write this down.
This book is definitely a MUST read for both men & women....I am not enjoying the fact that this is a reality but I am definitely enjoying being informed....
Here are a few points so far that have really hit home for me right now...

I am contemplating starting a book review channel or radio show because I REALLY want to become a bigger part of the booktube community. I LOVE watching booktubers like
Christine Riccio and I love their enthusiasm and the community they create around books. I want to join the discussion in a bigger way and share my love for books too but I can't decide if I should add book reviews to my already existing youtube channel (I'm a life coach) or if I should start an entirely new channel for my book reviews OR if I should forgo the whole video thing all together and start a radio show instead.
Radio can be easier sometimes since it's less make up & less set up...lol cause let's be honest....getting video ready takes a lot of time! lol On top of all the editing you have to do-not always fun...
Well ok I think I've kind of decided just based on that...I think radio is where it is....ahhh I don't know! :) LOL
Ok yes, I think I'm going to go with radio... :) I will do book & movie reviews because I LOVE both! :)
So...would you listen in if I invited you to? I will definitely post the links here for the show...ok yes, I'm doing this. :)
See this is why writing out your thoughts is awesome! :)
So see you guys soon!! :)
I follow Miss Reader's Reading Adventures (as many of us do cause she has a TON of followers!) and I saw this month review that she did and I really loved it! I really enjoy evaluating myself & the things I do so I think this would be really fun to do! So here goes!
I am adding my own little twist to it as well but the inspiration definitely comes from her. :)
Since I LOVE LOVE LOVE tea, I am going to use a rating system of tea cups.
5 tea cups means AWESOME and definitely worth your time
1 tea cup means it wasn't exactly...my cup of tea. :)
