Hello Lovelies

I have not been posting a large amount of book reviews like I did last month because I am preparing myself for RT Booklovers convention, which will be my very first book convention. I am honestly excited to share with you guys all my Vlogs of my trip to Los Vegas! I hope to have time to take lots of fun photos of all my favorite authors at the convention too. Speaking of authors at the convention I am seriously nervous about not finding Leigh Bardugo for the Pop-Up signing. I truly would like to meet her, but I’m stealing myself just in case I miss her. Thus, I’ve been focusing my attention on my family moving into our new home while I’m at the RT Convention. My therapist though painting would be great for my anxiety but I don’t think he would have believe the interesting designs I painted on my furniture.

I feel that my house is a furniture orphanage. Family members give me unwanted pieces of furniture or pieces that they promise they are going to come back for but never do. Since we are moving into a new home I felt it’s time for a new start especially for these old pieces. One cabinet in particular was trouble to repaint, no matter what colors I choose it still looked unwanted. My best friend was geared up and  ready to throw it out since it was 2 am in the morning and I still wasn’t happy. I figured since he was the muscle of this operation, I could at least paint it all black for the curb dump.
All Black
Who do I know has all black furniture?
All Black with a hint of red, maybe? Black Furniture.
Then a quite from a book whispered into my ear and I began to paint.

“Why waste my anger on you when the fault is mine? I should have anticipated another betrayal from you, one more mad grasp at some kind of childish ideal. But I seem to be a victim of my own wishes where you are concerned.” His expression hardened. “What have you come here for, Alina?”

I answered him honestly. “I wanted to see you.”

I caught the briefest glimpse of surprise before his face shuttered again. “There are two thrones on that dais. You could see me any time you liked.”

The best part about this entire experiences is the fact that I tagged Leigh Bardugo in my original Instagram post of the sketch outline of the cabinet just to test the luck of a lousy cat (as my mom would say) to only be rewarded then I saw the loveliest notification

My Reaction

I’m just so happy!
I can’t wait to share the final product of the cabinet
