1/12 of the way into 2018 everybody!
And people are eating tide pods and the government shut down. What an amazing start to the year!
But who cares about that part of the month? How about MY month? Let’s talk about me! After all the title is, “The month of a redhead,” so what redhead did you expect to be here? Gerard way circa 2011? Emma Stone?
the HIGHLIGHTS of my month
hehehe look at the picture ^^^
LET US BEGIN WITH MY BEST HARRY POTTER HIGHLIGHTS
My birthday was on December 31st! Not in January, but it’s in here because we celebrated by going to the one place in a 4 hour radius that is possible to go to that I’ve always wanted to go to…
You guessed it!
(k maybe you didn’t, and then you’ll feel like a toddler when Dora asks, “What color is the banana?” and you say, “Blue!” and she says “You guessed it!”)
I went to Harry Potter world??
It was SNOWING… not actually but like the roofs of the buildings did a pretty good job of convincing me that it was so…
We got no melt ice cream but it was frosting, so it was a rip off but I’m not complaining because I got a cup of chocolate frosting. BUTEERBEER was iconic and it tasted like everything amazing in the world. Also Pumpkin Juice is very pumpkin-y, and I spilled it all over my white shirt on the way home so that’s great.
I’m not doing so well in Hogwarts so this awfully nice wizard taught me how to cast my spell on the chocolate frogs. I aspire to be him, tbh. I was smiling ridiculously as I was walking down the place, some muggles gave me some strange stares, but we don’t speak of them.
But OMG the forbidden journey was… okay I have to take a deep breath every time I speak of it because it was FRICKIN AWESOME.
Here is me standing awkwardly after the the studio tour, still probably dreaming of Dumbledore. The rest of the park was mediocre comparing to HP world, but still loads of fun!!! My second fave ride was probably the transformers one even though it had no meaning to me because I haven’t seen a single movie of it so all it was was just a bunch of huge robots crashing into each other. It sucked for my little brother (YES I’m aware that he’s only 10 and taller than me) because the Jurassic Park ride was closed and it was quite tragic, but he cheered up after we fed him some sugary butterbeer.
I read five books this month, all of which were quite good for my first round of newly acquired books!
BTW I got a GOODREADS a few days ago. So yeah, go friend me please! HOORAY for bookish friends
|wowza. The voice of Hannah is one of the voices you can hear in your mind (im not schizophrenic I promise) and it’s full of all her tragic stories. Justification is all she’s trying for, for herself and the people on the tapes. It was wonderfully written, but I felt like the end was very abrupt… It had some sexual content that I was not expecting as well.|
Dumplin//Julie Murphy ★★★★★
|GEEZ I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS!!!
this book is literally everything. Willowdean is my new role model because of the confidence she grew in this. Every character was so well developed and I squealed several times while reading it. Now I want a cherry flavored sucker…
|the pages of this book are tear stained bc it made me cry so much… it was so quietly beautiful also the cover is gorgeous I’m gonna have to borrow that dress from tiger lily. As for one of my first fairy tale retellings, I am going to have some SERIOUS thinking to do when I watch the Disney Peter Pan next time.|
Andd I haven’t had time yet to Review Daughter Of Smoke and Bone, When Dimple Met Rishi, and Turtles All The Way Down. I’ll get to it. Or I’ll procrastinate. We shall SEE.
Idk, I feel like I’m rating the books I read wayyy too high?? Maybe I should raise my standards?? But I also feel like I JUST got out of a reading slump and every book I have read this month was pretty dang decent. XD OR I’m just a fluffy unicorn and I’m way too nice to my books.
I actually lied and said I read all 5 books, but I’m really close to finishing When Dimple Met Rishi but I CAN’T there’s too much cheese. Ohh the cheesiness. It’s KILLIN ME.
Fave book of the month?
For sure Dumplin’. I sometimes struggle with body image, but don’t we all? I feel like it really gives an important message. It broke my heart to be honest, and uggh I wish I could put it into the hands of every girl/boy who thinks they’re body isn’t good enough.
(also, did you see the cracked spine?? If my book has a cracked spine, then it either means I was reading on a table and too lazy to hold the pages down, or carried it with me everywhere because it was so supremely fabulous)
I also felt like the main reason why I didn’t finish so many books is because I spent so much time STARTING books and peaking in between pages (cmon people you do it too) that I got really picky and started like 2 chapters of 20 books and ultimately decided on like one. So that took up a ton of time. xD
I also baked COOKIES! To match my book?? To take an artsy pic of??
But not going to lie I also made them to eat…
You guys can use my handy dandy charts to make your own unique pen name?? how cool is that??
I showed you some ridiculously easy peasy as apple pie bookmarks. The last part of the title was a result of waking up at 5 in the morning, but I forgot to delete it xD
Copying Bookish Tumblr Photography No. 2: In Which I Copy People Because Original Content is Overrated
I recreated a ton (3) of tumblr photos and they turned out either decent of mediocre.
After being just plain lazy and not posting since Christmas, I decided it was about time to make this post.

Honestly, the reason I’m breathing and actively functioning as a live human being is because of my DSLR camera. And my editing software. 😛
BUT LOOK AT THE WITTLE BALL OF FLUFF IN THE LIGHT SHE’S AN ANGEL AMIRIGHT?
Twila likes the camera I think??? I was setting up the fairy lights for this shot and without me even (gently) forcing her, she plopped herself right in the position I needed her in. SHE’S SO CUTE I CAN’T
We took a G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S drive down the ranch and had to stop the jeep to get a pic of this glowing moss.
The best part was that my grandpa took us all the way up LITERALLY above the clouds.
And OH MY it made for a perfect photo op. I love. ❤ ❤
