This time last week, all of New Zealand was in shock. I don't think anyone could have imagined an attack happening on our peaceful soil.
Sadly over the past day or so I've noticed a dramatic increase of racist and Islamophobist comments infiltrating social media.
If you see anything unsettling online, please report it.
What we need now is understanding, respect and kindness shown towards other religions to which we don't personally practice.
Don't hate someone else's beliefs just because they are different to yours. Don't hate someone else because of their culture. Don't hate someone else because of their skin colour.
Just don't hate, okay?

Part 1 in audible 🎙️🎧📻🎼🎧 Marcus O’Neal sees nothing wrong with wanting two women at the same time. He feels that his charm and the power of the "D" will be the answers to Charlene Wilson and Keyshia Green’s every prayer. Little does he know that Charlene has a few hidden secrets of her own that will bring more drama into the mix than Marcus has ever seen in his entire lifetime.
Marcus’s girlfriend, Keyshia Green does whatever ...whenever...however ...anything to please her precious Marcus. She’s invested her time and plenty of effort to do whatever it takes to keep her man around. She is determined to win in the end but at what cost?
I gotta say.. I LOVE the bad boys in books so when I saw this cover I one clicked that book quicker than anything. 😅

Jepi një shuplakë vetes
para se tepër vonë të jet,
e të mos jesh i vërtet.
Unë nuk mund të të qëlloj...
Mullinj ere dhe unë kam luftuar,
derisa një ditë të bukur,
kuptova se kisha duar,
Një shuplakë vetes ia dhash,
të qëlloja veten kisha harruar...
Duhet të fillosh të kuptosh,
që në libra do të gjesh veten
pasi ta kërkosh.

My name is Kate! I'm an introvert, my personality type is INTP, and I am a Christian. I live in the US and my favorite seasons are fall and winter. The dragon pictured with me is Glitzy. 😉
I love all animals (except centipedes) and I own five diabolical cats. Their names are; Mokki the Model, Meggie the Muser, Merry the Mischievous, Isa the Incorrigible, and Molasses the Mysterious. I can't imagine living without them. 💕
My top fandoms are Halo, Doctor Who, The Lord of the Rings, and Marvel.
I love to strength train, run, learn new things (I'm like a SPONGE for knowledge!), listen to music, and write...I write whatever comes into my head (mostly stories with a lot of action, adventure, drama, friendship, and tears. Occasionally poetry). I write the stories I want to read. I hope some day if I publish them other people will want to read them too.
Aaaaand, I love to read (haha, who would have guessed?!). My favorite genres are fantasy and sci-fi, but I will read a lot of different books if they are clean. Genres I avoid like the plague are romance and non-fiction. I don't read much contemporary. I love books with animals. ^.^
Well, now you have a little glimpse of me! If you have any questions, please feel free to comment and ask! :D It's nice to be here and meet you! Thank you for following me <3

I've ordered my April @fairyloot and @owlcrate boxes. Both themes are dark magic 🔮 a personal favourite of mine.
I'm 99% confident I've worked out the books in each crate. At first I was worried they might be the same since their themes are similar this month. I scrolled through countless comments and cross referenced these with book release dates and am confident they are different and I'm confident I have the right books 😘.
Now just waiting on litjoys magicalcrate to go on sale in April and I'll be one happy little bookworm 🐍
These are the books I've read thus far this March, almost finished a curse so dark and lonely, a review coming soon 🌹
LaGuardia is a little more bearable with a good book! I’ve been working my way through this Netgalley ARC and really enjoying it. It’s a light read about a 17 year old girl who takes a summer job at the local aquarium. She falls in with a new group of friends, but will their friendship change the course of her relationship with her boyfriend, who she has vowed to run away with at the end of the summer? The teenage characters are super relatable- I wish I could reach through the pages and shake them sometimes!! The Goodbye Summer will be available in May 2019.

Psikianalizleri ile bilinen Stefan Zweig'in güzel kitaplarından biri. Okurken bir cok duyguya sizi sürükleyen 55 sayfalık bir kitap. .
✔ Tüm cocuklarda görülen , ya da cocukken bizim de yaşadığımız, bilinmeyene olan ilgi. Çocukluğun anlam aramadan, karşılık beklemeden yetişkinler tarafından komik bulunan tutkusuna gülerken veya bilinmeyen kadının genc kızlıktan kadınlığa olan tüm zamanlarında hala bu tutkusuna olan anlamsız sadaketine kızarken bulabilirsiniz kendinizi. Bir kadının duygularının cocukluktan kadınlığa olan sürecte ki değişimini okurken değişmeyen tek bir şey vardır aslında tanrı olarak tutkusuna tapması. Zaten bunu da dile getirir mektup içinde. Suclar tarzdaki cümleler ile sizde mektup alıcısını suclarken bir anda suclamanın alınması ile ne yapacağınızı bilemezsiniz. Zira tek taraflı bir anlatıştır bu. Bunu fark edince de Bay R 'nin cevabının ne olacağı sizi kemirmeye başlar. Kadının dilinden bay R'nin vurdumduymazlığını dinlerken öfkelenip, bilinmeyen kadının sevgisini okudukca sizde yumuşarsınız.
. ✔Sancılı bir sürecin yansımasıdır sevgisi etrafında dönüşen bir kadının var oluş sancısıdır. Zira bilinmeyen kadının varoluşu sevgisine bağlıdır sevgilisine değil.
❗ Kitap boyunca her ne kadar bilinmeyen kadın dan taraf hissetseniz de aslında karar vermek ve yargılamak cok zordur bu öyküde. 📖📖Keyifli okumalar.. #okudumbitti#okudumokuyun#kitaptavsiyesi#kitapanalizi#kitapyorum#bookstagram#bookblog#yazarperest

BOOK REVIEW! 🌊 THE DEEPEST BLUE by @sarahbethdurst is a new standalone in the world of the Queens of Renthia series, in which one woman will fight against the odds to return to the normal life she craves with her beloved
I thoroughly enjoyed the Queens of Renthia series, and I loved getting to return to the world in The Deepest Blue. We never really spent much time in the islands of Belene in the original trilogy, so I loved experiencing this part of the world. Durst has imagined such a rich, nuanced fantasy world -- it's easy to see why she returned to it, when there is so much left to explore. Plus, the new characters introduced in this book are just excellent. I especially loved Mayara and her husband Kelo; their relationship is so lovely and charming, and I loved seeing how it gives both of them strength as the plot of the book unfolds. .
THE DEEPEST BLUE is available now & you can read my full review today on the blog – link in bio. I’ll post the full synopsis in the comments below! .
The Hey Sunshine series by @tiawritesbooks is one of my absolute favorites so I’m so excited to partner with @tiawritesbooks to giveaway away a copy of the third and final book in the series, Brighter Day!! Rules:

Thank you to my dear friend Jen (@_the_bookish_blonde_) for helping me track down a bunch of these titles. And thank you Diana (@owlslittlelibrary) for gifting me my very first one and getting me hooked! 😂♥️
