I Recently Bought some Books…

So I typically don’t buy too many physical books, or least I haven’t been in the last year or so. But this month I really wanted some new books and wanted to treat myself. I got my books from Target and from Barnes and Nobles. All the books I picked are new to me so I don’t know much about them but still wanted to try them out.

Down below is my recorded book haul video. Check it out and let me know which books I should start next for January.

Thanks for stopping let me know what you think of this recent book haul.

Watch “GRWM: Makeup Therapy # 1” on YouTube

Hey everyone πŸ‘‹πŸ½ I posted a video of my everyday makeup routine on my YouTube channel. I know I mostly discuss books there but I wanted to incorporate makeup as well. Makeup for me helps me relax and I use it a form of therapy because I use that time to apply my makeup to just relax and take my time. Plus it’s fun and a creative way to express myself. I want to do my makeup videos soon. Please comment,like and subscribe and let me know what you think. 😊

We Time By Moon Bey Book Review

Synopsis:

Lover, secretary, caretaker, kiss craver; Darryl has worked hard to be the kind of man women sing about in love songs. His friends have always warned him against treating chicks like wives without a ring. But to Darryl, his loyalty should be as intense as his love. He vows never to give his lady a reason to doubt him.

Things were no different when he got with Monae. Darryl became so obsessed with her potential that he ignored her using his kindness as a crutch. His friends quickly noticed Darryl’s forgiving heart gave Monae the security to do as she pleased. After all, she was always welcomed home with open arms.

Forced to spend more quality time as a couple than usual, Darryl faces truths he can no longer ignore and secrets Monae can no longer hide.

Will Darryl double down on his beliefs and continue to ride for Monae as one’s partner does? Can he manage to go against his nature and send Monae packing? Only a little we time will tell.

Book Review:

This was a different kind of story. Darryl I understand he is a sweet guy and cares for Monae but he is getting treated crap. Monae is wrong for being around other men and not even trying to hide it from Darryl.

Women like this make it hard for the good women out here. Monae plays too many games and she really doesn’t care how Darryl feels. Which is wild because she claims she still loves him.

Darryl is very weak it’s nothing nice about a weak man. He should had not tried as hard to keep Monae around instead just left her. The ending is what got me though. Darryl is not strong and he shouldn’t had took Monae back.
