Silencing Insecurity by Donna Gibbs

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. I started this buddy read with my friend Kayla, who has been a wonderful supportive friend that I met through the Modern Mrs. Darcy Bookclub. We have read a lot of books together! I started this one with her and got side tracked due to holiday hustle and bustle but I did manage to get it finished up today and what a great message! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Silencing Insecurity by Donna Gibbs. With the world moving so quickly and everything being so competitive there are hundreds, literally hundreds of influences that can effect the way you think about yourself. Some wish to be skinnier, so wish to be faster, some want to write and some want to run bottom line is our sense of self-worth takes a daily beating. This book relates back to the way God created you to be you and how to embrace that and stop all the negativity the rest of the world feeds you.

The Princess and The Fangirl by Ashley Poston

I purchased this book from Amazon to read with my bestie @mycornerforbooksand. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The Princess and The Fangirl by Ashley Poston. I have to admit when I started this book and it wasn’t about Elle I was devastated. I was so looking forward to more food truck capers. Turns out to be a Geekerella Fairytale it doesnt have to be just about Elle! I was very happy to see she makes more than one appearance in this book. Famed Princess Amara from the Fandom Starfield was killed off in the last movie and Actress Jessica Stone couldn’t be happier that this would be her last Starfield movie. On the flip side Imogen Lovelace will stop at nothing to save her favorite character and begins the #saveamara campaign. Imogen bumps into Jessica in the bathroom and from that point forward both girls will make choices than will either save or break the Starfield Fandom completely. Switching places leads to new avenues of love but could be the end of several people’s careers.

Emotions Are Normal by Amanda Soto

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. Emotions Are Normal by Amanda Soto. This is a short book of a collection of poems and thoughts that were written with raw emotion. Each short story or poem is filled with a tragic emotion followed by sorting or resolve. It actually feels like falling apart and someone piecing you back together again. Page after page. Remember to practice self-care before, during, and after poetry reading as necessary.
