CURRENTLY READING!

Hello, wonderlandians. Welcome back to wonderland. I know today is Thursday and this should have gone up yesterday. I have been busy with life things. So this is what I am currently reading. I really don’t know how I feel about this book so far.

Neptune is home to both Syrena and Half Breeds alike. But Emma and Galen didn’t sign up to be peacemakers between the ocean and land-dwelling, freshwater Syrena. They didn’t bargain for meeting a charming Half Breed named Reed, who can barely disguise his feelings for Emma. An

In this stunning conclusion to her bestselling Syrena Legacy, Anna Banks thrills fans with more action and romance than ever.

Amazon  – This is book three. Just keep that in mind.

What I’m Reading Wednesday

Hello, wonderlandians. So last night my computer cord broke. This sucks so much. I hope your Wednesday is off to a great start unlike mine.

What I really want to do to my computer right now. Anyway so the book that I am currently reading also almost done with is called Driver by K. Bromberg. This one really baffles me because it has three different covers. They are all different variations of each other.

Like I am sorry what? Why do we need so many different covers. I do have to say that the last cover is probably my favorite.

That is all I have for you in this post.

I am listening to this awesome book by Emma Blackery. She is a British singer/YouTuber. She wrote a book called Feel Good 101. This is about her life. She clearly states that this book will not change your life and how it is a not a self-help book. I love reading about what other people go through. I want to be inspired by other people. She goes in detail about her life and her depression. She also deals with anxiety. It’s brilliant so far.

With every books that I consume on this topic I feel less alone and there are other people out there that know what I am going through.

So I hope you all are having a great day so far. Me I am having a wonderful. I have been up since five am. I feel like today so far has been a very productive day. I got some reading done early this morning before I had to go to work. I got some reading done while I was filing today. I was listening to my audiobook. It makes it go by so fast. I answered some emails and hey I got this blog post written. The earlier you get up the more you get done. Tonight I am hoping to get some writing done on one of the books that I mentioned in yesterdays post.  I think I might make a Monday Madness post about it. I am not sure yet.

So here is what I am reading as of today.

Synopsis

A frank, funny, no-holds-barred memoir that reveals the Deal or No Deal host’s ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD–and how it has shaped his life and career.

Howie Mandel is one of the most recognizable names in entertainment–respected by his peers and beloved by audiences as the host of the enormously popular prime-time game show Deal or No Deal. With a career that spans three decades and many different show-business platforms–he’s a renowned stand-up comedian who continues to perform more than 150 sold-out shows a year, he created the award-winning TV show Bobby’s World, he’s starred in feature films and the hit TV series St. Elsewhere, and he’s also hosted his own daytime talk show–he’s one of the most versatile performers anywhere. But there are aspects of his personal and professional life he’s never talked about publicly–until now.

Eleven years ago, Mandel first told the world about his “germophobia.” He’s recently started discussing his adult ADHD as well. Now, for the first time, he reveals the details of his struggle with these challenging disorders. He catalogs his numerous fears and neuroses and shares entertaining stories about how he has tried to integrate them into his act. “If I’m making myself laugh,” he writes, “then I’m distracted from all the other things going on in my head that are, at times, torturous.” And he speaks frankly and honestly about the ways his condition has affected his personal life–as a son, husband, and father of three.

Fans who’ve been dying to know “the deal” behind Mandel’s remarkable rise through the show-business ranks will be rewarded with many never-before-told anecdotes, each one generously leavened with Mandel’s trademark humor. There are tales from every phase of his colorful career–from his early days as a teenage carpet salesman and aspiring stand-up comic to his stint opening for Diana Ross, his six years on St. Elsewhere, and beyond.

As heartfelt as it is hilarious, Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me is the story of one man’s effort to draw comic inspiration out of his darkest, most vulnerable places. It’s sure to please Howie Mandel’s legion of fans–and provide hope to the millions who strive to succeed in spite of OCD and ADHD.

I am really liking this book. Howie is really easy to listen to. I find myself laughing and crying while listening to this book. When it comes to OCD I try to learn as much as I can because I to have OCD. This book is great. Howie and I kind of have the same kind of OCD. I hate germs. So I have to contamination OCD. Howie also has checking OCD that one I am not to familiar with as I do not have it.

What I’m Reading Wednesday

Hello, my wonderlandians! How is your Wednesday? Today I am reading the book Severed Hearts by Kelly Carrero. Now I found this author a few years ago. I love her books. They are a really quick read and usually, I can finish her books in one sitting.  The way she writes her characters they are so relatable.

Synopsis

All my life I’ve dreamed of the man who would be the one to free me from my curse. Turns out Marcus is real, and so are the angels, demons, and witches that are trying to get their hands on me. And don’t even get me started on those Soul Scrapers.

What I didn’t realize, and neither did Marcus, was that Justin had lied. Someone wants me dead to stop an earth-shattering ancient prophecy that nobody actually believes in from coming true. Pity for them, I’m not giving up easily, and I discover something that no one saw coming.

Severed Hearts is a young adult paranormal romance that takes place in a thrilling supernatural world. Discover the amazing fantasy universe author Kelly Carrero has made fans fall for! Book 1, Severed Wings, is also available now!

Today I wanted to give you an update about how my Jan Jam Jar reading challenge is coming together. If you guys want to know that the Jan Jam Jar challenge is please click here.

So I am putting together my jar for this challenge and I have 10 books far. I think I might be adding more. I know for a fact that in the first month of the year I usually read about 10 or more books. So I really want to aim high next year to really knocking all the books from my TBR.

I have decided that I will be posting updates on Sundays. Then the last day of the month is on a Wednesday and I will be making an extra post on that to wrap up the month.

Well this is all I have for you today. Have a happy and safe day.

Thank you for taking a break from your holiday fun and joining me here in our Wonderland. Fun fact did you guys know that it is actually unicorns that fly Santa sleigh? No, because that really wanted to keep their existence away from us humans. So if you feed them a treat they will grant you a wish, but they will also take you up for a ride.

Until next time

Funny enough I have read this book about 4 times over the last four years. While I have listened to. I love the audiobook. One of the narrators is Grace Grant. She is one of my all-time favorite narrators. Sadly, for whatever reason, I do not own this audiobook.

My reaction when reading this book.

I have Pride and Prejudice and it is so beautiful! I have been wanting to read more classic books. They are just intimating I thought this would be a great way to read them. It is the actual story but there are manga installations. So this is one I am hoping to get in the near future.

What I’m Reading Wednesday

Hello, my wonderlandians. I hope you are having a great Wednesday. I am off today so I did not wake up until 1 pm. I have been very tired lately. So the sleep in was nice. In a couple of hours, I’m getting ready to go to my mom’s house to go pick up my box of ornaments so my boyfriend and I can put up our Christmas tree. I know it’s the 20th of December and still no Christmas tree…

giphy (3)

Today though we are here for another What I’m Reading Wednesday.

I am currently listening to a book called The Ninth Key. It is the second book in the Mediator series by Meg Cabot.

199786

Synopsis

Ghosts ruin everything. Especially your love life.

Everything is going great for Suze. Her new life in California is a whirlwind of parties and excellent hair days. Tad Beaumont, the hottest boy in town, has even asked Suze out on her very first date. Suze is so excited that she’s willing to ignore her misgivings about Tad… particularly the fact that he’s not Jesse, whose ghostly status – not to mention apparent disinterest in her – make him unattainable.

What Suze can’t ignore, however, is the ghost of a murdered woman whose death seems directly connected to dark secrets hidden in none other than Tad Beaumont’s past.

(After reading these books. I want to go watch the show Ghost Whisperer.) 

This book is actually going to be a reread for me I read it back when I was in high school and I recently just finished the 8th book in the series so what I wanted to do was go back and reread the entirety of the series. Unfortunately, I do not have books 1 and 2 I do have 3 through 7. So I thought I would get the audiobooks this time around and listen to them.

I thought this would be a nice way to kind of end the year. I love this book series I love the world but it takes me in to. Overall, I love the main characters, Susanna Simon. I honestly feel like when I was back in high school she felt like that friend that didn’t really give a crap. It was nice because my overall High School experience wasn’t the best. So I was able to escape into this world where I felt like I had a friend that took up for you and really didn’t take crap from anybody. And then, of course, you know you have the hot love interest. There were also times when I would put myself in Suze’s Shoes just because I wanted to cry and go see you like I was somebody else for a while. This is on a day where I was having a particularly bad day with my mental health and I just needed to escape. So this is my reading Wednesday.

As always thank you guys so much for coming here and joining me and our little part of Wonderland. On your way out do not forget to feed the unicorns. We are 5 days away from Christmas so they are definitely in the mood for granting all over the wishes.

Until next time

Much love
