Moon Theory by Robert M. Drake

As someone who own’s and read(s) all of Drake’s books, I have to say that this is a beautiful collection. Now by all means, this is not my favorite Drake book. It’s not his best, but by no means does that make it a bad book either. I love the fact that he had longer pieces throughout the book.

This collection isn’t quite what I was expecting. The more I weaved my way through the pages, the more I thought he was not only considering his life, but the coming years his daughter will have. And that melted my heart.

I’ve always enjoyed Drake’s words. This book is another great add to his poetry collection, and I will likely pick it up again soon.

Rating:  4 stars!

Amazon | Goodreads

36421958This is something about self-love—something they don’t teach in school. Something that’s very hard to learn on your own. This is something about putting yourself first because it’s okay to love yourself before anyone else. This is something about doing what’s best for you, no matter what people say, because only you know what you deserve. This is something about being real, being real to who you are and accepting things as they come and change. This is something about your mistakes, about your flaws, and about how beautiful it is to get up and try again. This is something about being you, about using your voice when you’re afraid. About building enough courage when you feel like standing up to something you don’t believe in, something that’s wrong. This is about you, and every day should be about you, and that’s something you should always consider.

4. Nominate 11 other bloggers. (nominations are below)

Now, without further ado…


1. Which thing surprised you the most about blogging?

How enjoyable it can be when you’re doing it about something your passionate about. At first, I thought it’d be a lot of extra work and I wouldn’t last. But now I can’t wait to write the next review!

2. Which social media is your favorite to spread the word about your blog?


3. Favorite Movie?

I really don’t have a favorite. I like a broad range of movies the way I do with books. Basically movies like Exorcism of Emily Rose, Annabelle, The Conjuring movies, Secret Window, the Harry Potter series, Star Wars series, Jurrasic Park series, all Marvel movies. I could go on and on.

4. If you could swap places with a heroine from a book, who would it be?

This is a tough question… I can’t choose.

5. Tell me the title of a book which was a reading milestone for you. Like, the book that brought you into the reading world, or a childhood favorite.

Well, I quit reading due to my continuous struggle with dyslexia and not reading very fast. But when my roommate in college insisted I read the Twilight books and to take as much time as I needed, it opened me up to the book  world once again. Because it wasn’t for school with deadlines that were always difficult for me to make. This time, and forevermore, I read for me.

6. Top 5 book boyfriends

LOREN HALE – The Adddicted series. My forever #1.
Kaz Brekker – Six of Crows. Mike Noonan – Bag of Bones. Noah Shaw – The Mara Dyer series. The Darkling – The Grisha series.

Least Favorite: Typical romance stories with no new plot.

8. What is something weird you can do?

I sing at random. Even in the middle of conversations.

9. What is the first job you dreamed of doing when you were a kid?

Singer who writes her own songs.

Cover Reveal for Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King & Owen King

Sleeping Beauties

by Stephen King & Owen King
Publication Date: September 26th, 2017
Genres: Horror, Fiction


In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place.

The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied or a demon to be slain?

Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing father-son collaboration between Stephen King and Owen King.
