Book Review: The Last Great Reaper by Billi Bell

I do believe this is the first Indie Author book I have devoured in only two days. It was so well written, I honestly just couldn't put it down! I also couldn't wait to finish it because I knew I would love to review it.

Death guides souls to the afterlife, but she's so much more than just the Grim Reaper. She hates to be called that, BTW! And yes! Death is a she! She has a special name that she only let's close friends call her, but not to be confused with the Greek mythology by the same name.

She can only be seen by those who are on the brink of death, but one night while reaping she is seen by someone who is living. Curious and wanting to know more of why Father Dominic can see her, she takes him. Someone wants her to take him and keep him safe, and she needs to find out why.

She's written beautiful. A take no shit type of woman, just like you would imagine Death to be. The dialogue in this book is so well crafted, so well written. It's witty and memorable. Death is given human, tangible emotions which help us to connect with her. But she's still a total bad ass.

I love the backstory of Audrey. This book really has it all. Death, Biblical backstories, slave trade backstories, deceit, and betrayal. Revenge is my favorite, and I love knowing that certain characters get their just deserved. 

Death has rules, strict rules that must not be broken, but of course rules are made to be broken. No one is to intervene in a death, and reapers are not to know when their family members are going to die. When a reaper finds out and tries to save their family member, a mystery of treachery and lies unfold and Death must get to the bottom of it.

But how deep does the betrayal go in her ranks? I absolutely cannot wait to read book 2 when it releases!

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…
