I simply love the holiday season. I am always excited about Christmas and everything about it. Of course I never lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas, nor should anyone else.


With all that being said, one of the many traditions I look forward to is watching Christmas movies with my family. Especially on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I also have to have a little eggnog...kicked up a notch with french vanilla icecream and rum added.

It has been an honor to have President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle represent our country. I'm going to miss the Obamas when they leave the White House, as I will continue to state over and over again...trust and believe.

Book of the Month: [December 2016] - STALKING JACK THE RIPPER By Kerri Maniscalco


 photo 6A8D0A0C-F77A-4AF1-9C00-56846D970E85_zpsvoees5wx.jpeg



The book of the month selection for December is titled Stalking Jack the Ripper  by Kerri Maniscalco. I was instantly interested in choosing this novel as my next read simply by the title as well as the lure of the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper. It doesn't hurt that the book is presented by James Patterson who happens to be one of my favorite authors. I was also intrigued to pick up a debut novel. Debut reads are important to the writers as well. It is always interesting to see what is put forth in a writer's first effort.

This month's book pick, Stalking Jack the Ripper, sounds like one hell of a read. The story centers around a young woman who's interested in murders that are happening quite frequently. She begins to investigate and pours over the forensic evidence. Jeopardizing her safety and her life, she becomes involved in trying to solve the murders being committed by a serial killer. But will she get too close to the truth?

Such sad news. Sending condolences to his family during this difficult time.

12.12.16: Trevor Noah Interviews President Barack Obama [Full Video]








I'm going to miss President Obama when his second term ends. Jesus take the wheel, because that thing that is allegedly the President-elect is a walking disaster. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows Trump did not win the election.

Book of the Month: [November 2016] - THE HEIRESSES By Sara Shepard

 photo 7044A188-362B-4AEE-BAC4-AA522FBCD6D9_zpsradeadh8.jpeg




I have been crazy busy, but I wouldn't want it any other way. I usually strive to post my book of the month selections during the first week of each month. But recently this has not been the case due to time restraints. Anywho...

Regardless of a hectic schedule, I make sure to find the time to relax with a good book. I've also had the pleasure of reading a couple of fab reads in the last month or two but haven't found the time to post about them. However I will do so at some point.

The book pick for the month of November is a suspense thriller that I have been dying to read.

Election Aftermath: Hell


 photo 46A823A5-8ED8-4912-B04E-36572DC4B480_zpsvcavrcps.jpeg

(Update) Read and sign the petition encouraging the Electoral College Electors to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Sign Petition 

Today is Wednesday November 9, 2016. The day after the end of one of the most divisive and combative elections ever. Even with all the noise that was in the background, I thought surely folks would vote rationally. Seemingly it would have been an easy assumption to have confidence in the fact that rational folks with common sense would reject the dangerous rhetoric that had become second nature to Donald Trump.

Well folks, today is the day. Today is Election Day. Make time in your schedule to vote if you have not already done so.

After you vote. Volunteer an hour or two. Get the word out to vote by knocking on doors or making phone calls.

Book of the Month: [October 2016] - THE WRATH & THE DAWN [Book One] By Renee Ahdieh


 photo 6BD3D899-0AC2-4A9B-8814-7B97C0C11F5C_zpsl8kfavm4.jpeg


Fall is here and I have to say I'm very giddy about that. This is my favorite time of the year. It is the beginning of the build up to the holiday season. The fact that Halloween is almost here is a thrill as well. I associate Halloween with all things scary. So this gives me yet another reason to watch horror movies, which leads to Halloween night...a tradition of watching iconic horror movies. But of course...I simply cannot forget to mention the joy of curling up with a good book or a kindle, grabbing a comfy throw and a huge mug of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows during the Fall/Winter seasons.


The October book selection is a book that captures a reader's interest with just the intricate plot dynamic. A young girl sets out to get revenge on the person she feels is responsible for her friend's death and the deaths of others. But is all what it seems? I cannot wait to find out.
