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!

Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

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?
