I am extremely proud of myself as I was determined to get back on track with my arcs. I still have some ways to go but man I did good. But back to my original statement that September was a month of renewal.

I went to the library for the first time in months and it was great to be in that environment. It was quiet, clean and peaceful. I have no idea why I stopped going but the goal is to go once a week as part of my new self- care routine.

At the same time, I also rediscovered my love for reading and renovating my home. Although I am a bit stressed out, my time management is way better than it use to be.

Overall, despite time moving faster then I can handle, taking it day by day and being positive is making a difference in my life.

Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . . until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.

Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.

With starry Texas nights, red candy suckers, Dolly Parton songs, and a wildly unforgettable heroine— Dumplin’ is guaranteed to steal your heart.- Goodreads

Brisbane Writers Festival- 50 Years


Brisbane Writers Festival located in Australia is celebrating 50 years from September 5-9. But if you’ve never been to Australia then you would I have no idea what it is ( I certainly didn’t). So here is some facts :

  • BWF celebrates the ideas, reading and writings of the people of Queensland
  • Author interviews meet and greets are big highlights to the festival
  • New writers are introduced and as with any festival there are giveaways

This festival is free and they also have workshops available to the public  however I am unsure if those are free as well.

Hope you enjoyed this little FYI and if we have any readers who are in Australia able to attend this event do not hesitate to let us know how it went!
