 The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet by Rachel Rorick and Rachel Kiley 
                                The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet
Before her older sister, Lizzie, started her wildly popular vlog, Lydia was just a normal twenty-year-old plotting the many ways she could get away with skipping her community college classes and finding the perfect fake ID. She may not have had much direction, but she loved her family and had plenty of fun. Then Lizzie’s vlog turned the Bennet sisters into Internet sensations, and Lydia basked in the attention as people watched, debated, tweeted, tumblr’d, and blogged about her life. But not all attention is good…

After her ex-boyfriend, George Wickham took advantage of Lydia’s newfound web-fame, betrayed her trust, and destroyed her online reputation, she’s no longer a na├»ve, carefree girl. Now, Lydia must work to win back her family’s trust and respect and find her place in a far more judgmental world.

That's what on my wishlist wednesday
What's on yours?
Have you read The Diary Of Lizzie Bennet?
Do you want this book too?

Top Ten Tuesday # 3

Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and consists of them picking a topic each week for us bloggers to list our Top Ten.
1. Queen of Shadows By Sarah J Mass
 I love the Throne of Glass series, so I can't wait to read the 4th book in the series! :)
2. The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J Mass
 i know, i know, i should have read it first. but i'm making it a priority to read it this fall.
3. The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet by Bernie Su
As you all know, I love the Lizzie Bennet diaries so of course i have to want to read about Lydia! she's one of my favorite characters in the series.
4. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
 I really liked her first book and i'm looking forward to see how she develops as a writer.
5. What We Left Behind by Talley Robin
This book touches on LGBTQ and I'm a very big supporter of it. The premise of this book hooked me.
6. Ella, The Slayer by A.W Exley
 Cinderella as a zombie slayer? Yes please. :)
7. Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abbie McDonald
 Not many contemporaries are written about getting over someone, so when i found out about this book, i loved it.
looking forward to hopefully getting a chance to read it
8.Conversion by Katherine Howe 
  Remember in English class, when you were forced to read books like The Crucible. Well, this is a modern day version of it somewhat. I didn't like The Crucible at all when i was in school. But, this premise sounds interesting.
9. Mirrored by Alex Flinn
 I loved Beastly by Alex Flinn so i'm looking forward to a Snow White retelling.
10. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Library Book Haul/Sick

Although, I am sick today, I still got up and went to the library and picked up both Heir of Fire and A Court of Thorns and Roses. Along with printing out my report for one of my classes. If that's not determination, I don't know what is.  I'm excited to be reading both books because they are both from queen Sarah J, Mass. Her writing and characters are brilliant in each and every way possible. Though they each have their own flaws, they're not afraid to accept them. It is one of the things that I admire from them. Sorry this is turning into a really long ramble. I thought I would discuss today those mental health days that i wrote about at the beginning of the month. I took one today, and it felt good. I had two classes today, one at 8 in the morning and another one at 10:30. now, I had done my homework the previous night so I felt good. Until, when I woke up, I could barley speak.Granted, i'm getting over a cold so I thought, I'll manage. But then i wasn't my throat hurt and i was coughing a lot. So I decided to stay home from school. Do I regret it? No I don't because to have to go to school despite how terrible you are feeling is not something I would wish on anyone. I'm sorry but my health comes first before anything.  As long as you do the homework that was assigned that day and get the missed work. Then you will be fine.
 Anyways, that's all I wanted to share with you guys. :)

Fall TV shows

Thought  I would switch things around by talking about the shows that I am into this fall.As most of you know, fall means shows are coming back and I have a lot of favorites along with new ones. This list is in no particular order whatsoever.
 1. Brooklyn Nine-Nine- it's a really funny show, i binge-watched the first two seasons on Hulu, it's amazing if you haven't checked it out please do, it's worth it.
2. Once Upon A Time- I love this show, watched the first two seasons on Netflix, can't wait for the 5th season. I am a Captain Swan fan, along with multiple other ships
2. The Vampire Diaries- Steroline is finally going to be canon
3. Dancing with the stars. I did not start watching the show since the first season, but i have recently got into it, my favorite season would have to be season 18. i am excited for season 21 because i'm familar with some of the cast. I'm rooting for Alexa & Mark, Carlos& Whitney, and Derek& Bindi, 
4.Scream Queens- i'm excited for this one because it has some of my favorite actresses and Jamie lee Curtis who is queen. 
5.Supergirl- I somewhat liked Melissa Benoist as Marley on Glee, she had her moments. I really want to see how she has evolved since Glee, also i have this headcannon that after Glee Marley wanted a new life, changed her name and moved to new city.

Mini- Haul/update

Bonjour!, my friends, i'm in my second semester at college.  I'm taking French, Comunications, Math, and Literature, so I figured speaking french will help me better memorizing the pronounciations, Also, if you guys can recommend any french books, music, or movies, I would really appreciate it. Now, I'm a beginner so nothing too advanced. On to my book mini-haul, as you all know, i pre-ordered The Next Together by Lauren James and it arrived today!



Next up, is Very Good Lives by J.K Rowling
I got this book today while I was looking to buy my textbooks for my classes. This book is basically the speech to Ms. J.K Rowling gave at Harvard that deal with the benefits of  failure and the important of imagination. I started reading this on my way home , 20 pages into it. Really enjoying it
Finally, it's the life- changing magical art of tidying up by Marie Kondo. I have heard many people rave about this book on through youtube, tumblr and goodreads. plus I feel that it's the type of book you read while it's a rainy day.
On library new, both my books Heir of Fire and A Court Of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas are on in transit, i'm excited to finally read those books.
That's all for today guys
Au revoir!

Webseries and School

As you guys all know by now, I love webserie adaptions a lot I'm like obsessed with them. So I thought that I would share some that I am currently watching.
1. Green Gables Fables, Season 2 came out two weeks ago and I'm very excited
2. Project Green Gables, another modern version of Anne of Green Gables with Anne as an African American girl and it's really good, I like this version's interpretation, Anne's accent is beautiful.
3. Project  Dashwood, this is a modern adaption of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility told through Margret"s POV who is the youngest sister of the Dashwood sisters. I thought this is interesting because in most of the adaptions that I've seen, the youngest sister isn't present in the story. It's nice to see the story from her perspective even if she's not one of the main characters.
4. Lovely Little Losers, Sequel to Nothing Much To Do
5.From Mansfield with Love- Adaption of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
6. In Earnest - Adaption of Shakesspeare
7. Northbound- Adaption of  Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey
These webseries are great to watch after a long day of school and to just relax and fall in love with the characters in the story.

Now on to school, :( the dreaded day is upon us, I start school tomorrow and i'm both excited and nervous. Excited because i'm taking French and I love learning new languages. I can speak English and Spanish, but that doesn't cut it anymore for jobs so I figured learning French will allow me to expand my horizens more. I'm nervous because I don't know how my professors will be. Anyways, that's all for today, wish me luck first day back to school tomorrow Also, because school will be taking most of my time, I may not post as much but I will make time for it over the weekend
and when I get home from school.  Thanks and good luck to anyone who's started school! :)

Wishlist Wednesday # 4



Wishlist Wednesday # 4
Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Pen to Paper. This meme is where you showcase one book that is on your wishlist and that you can't wait to get off your wishlist and into your hands.

On my Wishlist Wednesday list is





            

              The Rose Society by Marie Lu
               The Rose Society (The Young Elites #2)
Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.

Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?

I chose this book because, I really liked The Young Elites, and I need to know what happens with Adelina and her sister next along with the rebels against the government.
