Book Review: Dollhouse by Anya Allyn


This book is so friggin' suspenseful. The entire time I was on the edge of my seat as if I were watching a horror movie. The book got so suspenseful, that I had to put it down for a day. I did, because I wanted to know the truth right then and there!

So, we have main character Cassie from Miami, FL! I love references to FL, yay! Then we have Aisha, Lacey, and Ethan. They are doing a school project out in the woods. After a spat Aisha storms off and gets lost. So lost that once they go after her, it's like she completely disappeared. Since Ethan is her boyfriend police suspect him. Are they right to, or is he being framed?

There's a creepy mansion in the middle of the forest, but the police have already searched there from top to bottom and came up with nothing. So, Ethan decides he is going to go back into the forest to find his girlfriend and clear his name. Cassie and Lacey decide to help him.

Going inside the mansion, ok, no big deal right? They sneak in once the guy who owns it leaves. It's once they go deeper into the mansion and get stuck in this underground dollhouse where things get really messed up. I mean, seriously messed up. They are given tea that makes them sleep, they are starved, and forced to dress up like dolls. It's really a mind fuck trying to navigate a way out of this dollhouse. Every time they tried to escape and they ended right back in the same tunnel I screamed and cried for them.

Jessamine strips them of their given names and gives them creepy names, and basically keeps them as her play things. It's really bizarre, with a lot of supernatural flare. I still have so many unanswered questions, which I am hoping are answered once I continue the series!

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
