Lately, I’ve Been….

Hey y’all!

I haven’t blogged on here in a long time, haven’t I? Sorry about that-been busy with trying to get into school and watching and playing new things and reading new things. So I saw this on a friend’s blog and I thought I’d do a currently as well because those look like fun.

So currently I’ve been….

WATCHING

The Ride to Hangman’s Tree

b70-5848

I never saw a western movie, ever. Not one. So when I looked through the western section of the movie part of my TV (we have on-demand), I browsed through it and found The Ride to Hangman’s Tree, and it was actually pretty damn good, though I was sad that they didn’t get the Black Rider. And on top of that they also had Wells Fargo in the movie as well so it was nice to see a bank robbery (and get the black box too)

This part was actually pretty damn funny

BEBE’S KIDS

71qhcrCpQ3L._RI_SX200_

This movie came out in the 90s, and honestly it’s still funny as it was the first time I watched it. It’s about a man (Robin Harris) who meets a woman named Jamika (at a funeral) and her son, Leon, and wanted to spend time getting to know her. So he agrees to take them to Funworld. Next day he goes over and…there’s three more kids with her! Turns out they’re called Bebe’s Kids, and that’s when the movie turns into a lot of laughs and fun, and there’s some really good songs in the movie as well.

HATFIELDS & MCCOYS

1985443

This mini series right here sparked my western reading again. I’ve always been interested in history, like way back when, back when there were kings and queens and all that…and also because of the Hatfield and McCoy dinner show I went to see in Pigeon Forge, TN (but that one’s purely for entertainment though). Even though there were some historical mistakes (that honestly I should care about, but like I just watched this for the hell of it) I actually enjoyed myself and I’m glad that I watched it.

JESSICA JONES SEASON 2

JessicaJonesS2_Horizontal-Bathroom_RGB-2000x812

HOLY CRAP THIS SEASON OF JESSICA JONES. I loved it, I can’t even put it in words. I’ve loved this show the moment it first premiered on Netflix and I binged watched the first season for two days and I loved it. This season of Jessica Jones? Can’t say enough about it, all except PLEASE GO WATCH IT. PLEASE.

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS SEASON 8

pic_rhobh_season_8_title_card

Yep…I’m a Real Housewives Fan, but I only watch Beverly Hills, NYC, and of course, my hometown of ATL (which I’ll get to in a second) I just got done watching the last ep of this season just now (thanks, XFinity) but this season was, as always, dramatic AF-mostly from Dorit’s pathological-liar ass mouth, Erika, Vanderpump, and Kyle’s closets which I would love to have this season, and getting to know Teddi more. They went to Berlin for the group trip and OMG it was so beautiful and I’m glad they had fun (I think they went to Teddi’s beach house to-and I wish I lived in it).

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA SEASON 10

rhoa-where-are-the-taglines-promote

Season 10 was a whirlwind, like really it was. Cynthia turning fifty, Kandi’s doing her thing with Xscape, NeNe’s fighting with Kim Zolciak Bierrmann, Porsha’s being…well, Porsha, Kenya got married and Sheree’s in a relationship with an ex-con while finishing up Chateau Sheree. Oh yeah Marlo and Eva was in this season too, and it was really, really fun and a whirlwind and I loved it.

LISTENING TO

Honestly…I’ve been listening to ‘I Know These Hills’ by Kevin Costner and Modern West feat. Sara Back, Kendrick Lamar’s HUMBLE., Whitey Morgan and the 78s “Waiting Round to Die” and “All the King’s Horses’ by Karmina. That’s it. And also the This Is Why You’re Single podcast

READING

  1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  2. Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
  3. Runway Vampire by Lyndsay Sands (finished it yesterday actually)

DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS

It’s going well-also May 27th at 4:30, clear yer calaenders because I’m going to be on Encounter Roleplay’s viewer-game called Trials of Bhaal and I can’t wait. Also I’ve died again in Curse of Strahd and I’M GLAD CRITICAL ROLE IS BACK halleujah.

So what have you been up to lately?

New Year, New…Me, Maybe?

(from Pintrest)

Hey y’all, and first off Happy New Years, even though it’s a few weeks late and lately I’ve been busy doing things-like reading four books into the New Year Reading Challenge and applying to colleges. Yes-I, Brittany, am applying to colleges now. I have only applied to Georgia State University in Downtown Atlanta, but I am going to do Clark Atlanta University and then maybe Kennesaw State University again when I get a chance. I’m also going to blog on here whenever I get a chance because I miss blogging on here so much, and soon I will do a book review on those four books I’ve read already this year, and already on my fifth book.

But like some (or everyone) I do have some New Year’s Resolutions that I’m not breaking (which is awesome, by the way) so here’s my Resolutions:

  1. Apply to colleges and wait and see what college I’m going to get into
  2. Learn how to drive and get my driver’s licence
  3. Go to more concerts that I will enjoy
  4. Read more classic novels that I will enjoy
  5. Write more and actually write a novel
  6. Go on a trip by myself one day or with friends
  7. Blog on here more about my life or start my own personal/lifestyle blog
  8. Play more D&D

So what are your New Years Resolutions, if you make some?

….I’m Getting on a Plane

Hey y’all!

When you read this post, I may or may not be on a flight right now coming back home because I’m on a plane. For the first time ever. Like I’m excited and also terrified because I don’t know what’s gonna happen when I get there. I don’t know if the plane’s gonna crash or what! But I all I know is that I gotta get up tomorrow morning and check in, get my Starbucks (because goddammit I’d be needin’ my Starbucks!!!) and then try to relax once we board on the plane. But to help me on this flight, here’s my buddy Dierks Bentley singing about drinking on planes (though mine isn’t gonna be that long of a flight).

Decisions, Decisions….

blogging-research-wordle

Hey y’all!

So last night I stared at my personal blog (that is now gone) and I was also reading the blog Inthefrow and looking at blog layouts and it got me wondering: what if I want to make a blog and host it. But looking at hosting sites and looking at the price (like one was 148 something dollars) and it honestly scared me. Do I really want to do that? Pay a hosting site every month, every year, to have a blog where everyone comes, read my content, and maybe enjoy it?

I want to, though right now I don’t see it in my budget. Maybe next year when I go to a four year college (gonna tour Emory and Georgia State University) and I decided to right now turn this blog into a book and a lifestyle blog where I post things about books (mostly) and snippets about my life, like random photos and maybe some good shows I’ve been watching lately, things I’m lusting/got and things like that, because I missed doing that, even though I do that for books as well. And also I want to study English Lit/Mass Communications when I get into a four year college and get a job one day (or after I graduate).

 

Two Books I’m Going to Try and Read This Month

Hey, y’all!

So after my little book slump in June (where I try and read Nora Roberts, but stopped and put it down), I picked up two books that helped me to get out of it, making me find more books from Barnes and Nobles and some from my personal library that I haven’t read yet (*puts Kim Kardashian ‘tragic’ gif here*) so here’s the two books I’m going to try and read this month and beyond.

A Storm of Swords: book three of A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin

Happy 3-Year Anniversary to RebelleFleurx!

f8d19de6ebd4f9cfb5d3d8f447e255a2

Three years.

Three years on WordPress blogging about my life at first, then this blog turned into a book blog because I loved blogging about books, posting up book reviews of the books I’m reading, and sometimes blog about life a little bit. But honestly I’d never thought I’d make it three years on this blog, but I did. And I started this blog at school because I felt like no one was reading my original blog on Blogger. And now that it has been three years of me blogging about books, I’m glad I’ve made the right choice-because I love this blog so much.

This blog is my baby, like the Winchester’s Car, and I’m glad that I’ve been here this long. So poor the bubby, folks, because I don’t think I’ll ever leave WordPress ever.

And also, to the peeps reading my blog every time I post, thank you. From the bottom of my heart-thank y’all so much.

Books I Really Want Really Badly (But I Have to Wait)

Hey y’all!!!

Sorry I haven’t been on in a long time-school started and it’s currently kicking my arse, and that all I’ve been reading is All the Weyrs of Pern (if you follow me on GoodReads, Twitter or somewhere else, then you’ll know) and I’ve also been playing my PlayStation 3 and watching TV/episodes I’ve been recording lately because of school and me just being lazy AF (sadly I am lazy…sometimes not all the time) so today I thought I share with you some books I’ve always wanted really really badly (because I’m broke and I can’t get any books at the moment) So let’s get started on the books I really really want…really really badly.

clockwork-princess

  1. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

This is the last and final book of the Infernal Devices series, and I really, really wanna get it and read it so bad (if you’ve seen my reviews for Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince, then what are you doing and go and read them or just buy them and read this awesome series!!) and I really wanna know what happened in the end-and I am debating on weather or not if I wanna read the Mortal Insterments before I read her new book.

throne of glass series

2. Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, The Assassin’s Blade and Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

I LOVED LOVED LOVED the first book of this series and it was beautiful-perfectly written. After I’ve read the first book, I WANTED TO READ MOAR. I loved Celeana, I loved the world buliding, the Wyrdmarks, EVERTHING. And on top of that, she’s coming out with a new book called Empire of Storms, AND RIGHT NOW MY BODY ISN’T READY. IT’S NOT, OKAY?!

3. The Rest of the Lunar Chronicles

I really loved Cinder and the idea of a fairy tale retelling-especially when I happen to be in love with fantasy and sci-fi. I’ve seen this book everywhere on bookstagram and I really wanna finish this book series SO FRICKIN’ BAD, YO. REALLY BAD.

4. How to be Single by Liz Tuccillo

Yes, I’ve always wanted to read this book-and oddly, I’m listening to it as an audiobook, but I really wanna own this book. It’s very interesting and I am enjoying it a lot, and that sometimes a gal needs a break from the YA/Fantasy books I’ve been reading lately…and yell at practically every male that does something stupid.

5. The Black Jewel Trilogy by Anne Bishop

Now I have the third book of this series (Queen of the Darkness) and I have read Shalador’s Lady (and it was fantastic) and I’ve always wanted to read this series SO BAD. So maybe one day I’ll go to the bookstore and buy the first two books of this series so I can read it and love it like I did Shalador’s Lady.

6. The Falling Kingdom Series by Morgan Rhodes

Now everyone and their grandma has possibly read this series, and I’m the only one who hasn’t. It looks interesting and I really wanna read this book so badly! It looks fun and there’s a new book coming out really soon (the cover had come out) and now I really wanna read it so I can see if it’s really good.

5b3ee9c120ef36cecb3a1e776b52d334

7. The Rest of the House of Night Series

Now I have Marked, Hunted, Tempted and Burned and Awakened, but I don’t have the rest of the books of this amazing series. I want to get all of them-Betrayed, Chosen, Untamed, Destined, Hidden, Revealed and Redeemed. I also got the novella Dragon’s Oath, and I want the last two as well, Lenobia’s Vow, Neferet’s Curse and Kalona’s Fall. I’ve been in love with this series the moment I’ve read Marked in high school and I really wanna finish this series so bad!

8. Since You’ve Been Gone by Megan Matson

Now this book sounds interesting to me-a girl’s best friend has gone missing, and she leaves a list for the girl to do while she’s trying to find her (I believe that’s right?) and I wanted to read it really badly. (along with the rest of the books on this list)

15749186

9. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before & P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Now I’ve never read a Jenny Han book-but these two books (second one not pictured) has been on my TBR list since they came out. I’ve always wanted to read them so bad and maybe this year I’d get to read them….

PATRICK-ROTHFUSS-NOVELS_612x380_0

10. The Name of the Wind series by Patrick Rothfuss

This is the last and final book on this list of books I really really wanna read-and the Name of the Wind series sounds perfect. I’ve seen PersueProject read this huge book and it really makes me wanna pick this book up and read it. I know it’s a long book, but if I can read frickin’ Game of Thrones and the Wheel of Time series, I can read this book. I can. I’m going to…why the heck am I still writing about this book I don’t know…

So that’s all the books I’ve wanted to read since forever. I’ve also linked up the book reviews of the books I’ve read that I loved. If there is more books I wanna read really really badly (which I know it is) I might do a part two to this (maybe without making it hella long?)
