I can finally say that I've read this series. I do wish that I read it when I was younger as this series wasn't as enjoyable as I thought it would be for me, reading it as an adult. The twist at the end of this book didn't surprise me too much and I was disappointed to find out about how another character had grown up. I was happy to see past characters towards the end of this book, but that didn't push this book from a like to a love for me.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will always be my favorite of this series, but I was happy to find The Horse and His Boy, as it is a second favorite of this series. I think overall, I'd give this series three stars and would still recommend people read it if they haven't.
My daughter and I were fortunate enough to be able to catch local showings of the live action movies Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) Part 1 and Part 2. Having watched and loved the anime, we thought it would be great to see the characters come to life. I was pre-warned by friends however, to not have high expectations going into it.

The action scenes were great, I thought The Colossal was amazing and the casting for Hange was spot on, in my opinion. I think that her performance was probably my favorite of both movies.
Then a couple weeks later, we were able to see Part 2. This part, though it did s…
Last leg of this challenge! Sorry it took so long for me to post this =(. I did actually finish this at the beginning of November, but didn't get around to editing the photos until now. Enough with the excuses...here we go:
Day 21- SeneGence Lipsense Army Pink and Honey Rose topped with Bougainvillea Gloss
2 layers of each color. The Army Pink on it's own is pretty but I feel like it's too bright/light for my complexion which is why I added the Honey Rose. Not only is LipSense great because it stays on for up to 18 hours and is transfer-proof, but you can create your own colors by layering colors together. Day 22 - Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Black Metal Dahlia
I love love love this tube of lipcolor. When I bought it, I was intending on buying the non-metallic version, Black Dahlia, but they only had this one. I'm so glad I picked up this one instead. The sparkle just gives it a little extra oomph if you know what I mean. That being said, I probably wil…
