πŸ“šπŸŽƒπŸ’– Books I’m Currently Reading in October πŸ“šπŸŽƒπŸ’–

Hey XO Gang. If you’re new here on my blog, hi I’m Shabria and thank you for stopping by. I blog about beauty, books, and whatever my heart desires. I hope you stick around by following my blog. And, if you’re returning thank you so much for coming back to another blog post I do really appreciate the love.

On todays blog post, I want to share with you on what I’m currently reading in the month of October. I’m reading just two books, so I was approved on Netgalley (website for e-arcs) to read Killing Me by Michelle Gagnon. So, I’m still in the beginning of the book like about 26% of the book but, it’s a comedy-thriller novel and I think it’s pretty funny in my opinion. And, my last book I’m reading The Perfect Roommate by Minka Kent. I won a Bookstagram giveaway from IndieSpines and I’m part of their October bookclub, so far the book is pretty good but I’m still also in the beginning of that book as well like on page 57 out of 219. I can’t wait to get finished reading these two books by the end of this month so I can do a book review on them (hopefully because I’m a slow reader). I would like to know what in the comments on book or books you’re reading this month?

Well, thank you for reading this blog post and I write to you next time, XOXO take care πŸ’–

Lakeside Morning single wick candle // fragrance notes: crisp morning air, white driftwood, and a hint of green apple.

Frozen Lake single wick candle // fragrance notes: lavender leaves, cool eucalyptus, and juniper berries.

Enchanted Candy Potion gentle foaming hand soap // fragrance notes: spellbinding sugar, bewitched berries, and whipped pixie dust (Halloween scent)

πŸ’–πŸŽΈπŸ“– How to Kill a Rockstar by Tiffanie DeBartolo πŸ’–πŸŽΈπŸ“– || BOOK REVIEW

Hey book babes, welcome back to my blog. If you are new here I’m Shabria and I blog about beauty and books. If that’s something you’re interested in, please follow and support and if you’re a day one reader thank you so much for your continues support. So, before I forget like always, here’s that book review that I was supposed to do ages ago (LOL) and be patient with me, I’m that type of reader that has a hard time remembering things after finishing it (LOL).

So, I finished reading How to Kill a Rockstar by Tiffanie DeBartolo and this book was about a young woman named Eliza who moved to New York City to work as an music journalist. She moved in with her brother who had a rock band and shared an apartment with his band mate and the lead singer and songwriter of Bananafish, Paul. Both Paul and Eliza do hit it off well and their relationship does blossom while both of them try to balance their careers. I’ll admit that this book was funny and I didn’t expect two plot twists, both of them were shocking and surprising in my opinion.

I definitely enjoyed reading this book and it was very well written, I rated this book 5/5 stars ⭐️ (categories: contemporary romance, music, and new adult romance)

❀️ Father’s Day Poem ❀️| 2022

Happy Father’s Day!

A Special Father

“A special father,
In my heart,
Is someone who,
Would never part.

A special father,
In my life,
Sits at the head of the table,
With a carving knife.

A special father,
I adore,
Is always there,
To keep the score.

A special father,
I must say,
Is you, my father,
In every way.”

β€”Julie Hebert
