My bathing suit is wet, and not from the pool, but from my disgusting, dirty sweat

This is a rant and not related to books at all, well, Queen of Shadows is mentioned, but that’s it. 

My bathing suit is wet, and not from the pool, but from my disgusting, dirty sweat.

That actually rhymes, hmmmm, i might turn that into a poem or something. Oh! Speaking of poems, one of my poems was published in an online magazine called Mimp Mag, click here to read it (It’s not one of my best, i just wrote it one day after a good run) You guys should submit stuff to the magazine if you want to 😉

Anyways, the last two days, with the exception of receiving Queen of Shadows this morning, have been horrible.

I swim on my school’s Varsity team, the thing is, practice starts two weeks before school starts in the mornings, and my parents can’t drive me, because they work full time.

So i usually get dropped off at school in the morning for practice, and then i take the public bus home. Let me tell you, the public bus sucks. It’s never on time, and the stop that i have is so bad and nearly invisible, that the bus always misses me.

So yesterday, the practice was changed to the afternoon, so i took the bus there no problem, but then on the way back, there was so much traffic from rush hour, that the bus was half an hour late, and then it missed me. Thank god the next bus was only 10 minutes in between because of the lateness of the first one. I was just soooo mad and tired by that point, and then i had to walk home from the bus stop as well. That’s why i didn’t post anything yesterday, cause i got home late and tired.

Then today, just now, half an hour ago, i’m walking to the bus stop, in my swimsuit so i don’t have to waste time changing at school, and i get to the bus stop, and it should be coming in 10 minutes, when my phone buzzes. Turns out, because of the heat, practice was cancelled.

Now, i’m sweating and really hot, and was waiting for the air conditioned bus. So now i have to treck all the way back home, and now i’m sweating even more.

I then lift up my shirt to wipe my sweaty face, and this is what i see:


It’s disgusting. I’m actually sweating through my bathing suit! I’m just happy that practice was cancelled before i got on the bus, otherwise, i would have been soooooo mad.

Ironic how practice was cancelled because of a heat wave. Hello? I’m walking in it! Could have mentioned practice was cancelled half an hour ago, before i left the house!?

I’m sooooo sorry about this rant, i’m just really hot and irritable. Hey, you know what solves that?


Sorry for the blurry photo, the camera was being icky. I’m just going to go read this baby, because that will definitely cheer me up.

Ok, i might do that Summer Reader Tag that Giselle tagged me in, then go read Queen of Shadows, just so i feel like i’ve been productive this week.

Ha ha, thanks if you actually made it to the bottom of this post 😉 If you have any comments, or stories like this of your own, please, you’re welcome to share them.

Ahh, i’m actually cooling down now, and am not as hot. And sorry for any typos, i wrote this up quickly 🙂

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses

Hello! I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses a few days ago, and i wrote down my review when i finished in my notebook, but i never got the chance to type it up and post it, so here it is!

Summary: So this book is about a 19 year old girl named Feyre and she is a huntress who kills a wolf, and that wolf turns out to be Fae. In return for killing the Fae, Feyre must live in the Fae world in return. It’s basically a beauty and the beast retelling, but on a larger scale: it’s sexier, darker, and scarier.

My review: (Spoilers down here)

I felt that this book was really good, but having read Sarah J. Maas’s previous works, her ‘Throne of Glass’ Series, i thought that Throne of Glass was better.

I really hated Feyre’s family in the beginning, but later on when she returns to them, i felt like their characters improved. Ugh! Why did Tamlin send her away! She was so close to saying ‘i love you’! And no, Amarantha wouldn’t have hurt Feyre, because then Tamlin would have had his full powers! Speaking of Amantha, wow, what a bitch!

There’s always the ship question, who do i ship? Hmm, well, Tamlin obviously i feel is endgame, Feyre will always be with him. But then, oooh, i’m so excited for her week with Rhysand! That’s going to be so much fun to read!

Rhysand can be a real dick sometimes, and in the beginning when we first meet him, i didn’t realize that he would be any sort of love interest. When he marked Feyre though, i was like, ship!

I kind of like Rhysand, if only because i love bad guys in books. Plus, when Rhysand gets his full powers back, he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with.

Also, where does Sarah J. Maas come up with these names for her characters!? They’re beautiful and strange and i love them!

Next up is going to be my review for Miss. Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, (i just finished it)

Thanks for reading!

See ya in the next one!
