Book of the Month: Ginny Moon

Hey y'all!

Here's what I've been reading: 

"Ginny Moon" by Benjamin Ludwig
 
Synopsis of "Ginny Moon" by Benjamin Ludwig (overdrive app)
"Ginny is a recently adopted teenager with autism.  She has a new home, new parents, and a new last name.  Before Ginny arrived at her new house, she spent years living in danger with her birth-mother.  Her world is a much better, safer place now, and everyone tells her that she should feel happy.  But Ginny is stifled.  Her voice is pushed down.  Silenced.  Bottled up for too long now.  It's ready to burst.  Ginny is desperate to get back to where she came from, back to what she left behind.  Because something heartbreaking happened there, something that only Ginny knows, and nothing will stop her from going back to make it right.  She'll even get herself kidnapped.
 Ginny moon is an illuminating look at one girl's journey to find here way home.  In this stunning debut, Benjamin Ludwig gives a voice to the voiceless, reminding us that often we only hear those who speak the loudest, and there's much to be learned by opening up our ears and hearts."

Although this story isn't always pretty, I fell in love with Ginny right from the beginning.  Her smart, mischievous, sassy, and sometimes down-right frustrating antics kept me turning the page and rooting for her throughout the entire book.  Ginny is a one of a kind character. She's a "handful" and has a ton of bad habits, but that's what makes her so fascinating.

Benjamin Ludwig's introspective look into the mind of an autistic teenager makes this book invaluable and definitely worth reading. 


Let me know if you end up reading this book.  I want to discuss! lol

Recent Beauty Purchases- Small Sephora Haul

Hey y'all.

I bought some new makeup! Lol

I treated myself to some new lippies and a cookies and cream body butter. 

Check out what I purchased below: 

It's Skin Cookie and Body Ice Cream, Nars Velvet Lip Glide in "La Main Bleue, Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Palette (Promo perks: Fresh Lip Balm in "Nude" and Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in "Amulet") and I chose the Caudalie birthday gift. 

It's Skin Cookie and Body Ice Cream, Nars Velvet Lip Glide in "La Main Bleue, Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Palette (Promo perks: Fresh Lip Balm in "Nude" and Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in "Amulet") and I chose the Caudalie birthday gift. 

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Pallet
I've had my eyes on this particular lipstick palette for a while now.  I have so much makeup and lipsticks, but this peeked my interest because it's something a little different for my makeup collection. I'm excited to mix and match the different colors, and I figured this would be a fun palette to get creative with.  The quality of the lipsticks in this palette is on par with the other lipsticks in Urban Decay's Vice line.  

Nars Velvet Lip Glide in "La Main Bleue" 
Y'all already know this is my color.  Give me all the fuschia/magenta lippies. lol

Urban Decay Liquid Lipstick in "Amulet"
This was a pretty good promo perk, right?

It's Skin Cookie and Body Ice Cream
I'm pretty sure that there are actual cookie pieces in this body cream. It looks and smells exactly like cookies and cream ice cream, but surprisingly, the scent isn't at all overpowering. 


Let me know what you think.
