Book Review: The Dark Between Stars by Atticus

Two book reviews in one month? I'm starting actually going to become a book blogger for the Lone Star Literary Life! They are an awesome group of people who work with all kinds of Texas authors! Check them out with the button below. Anyways, the point of me telling you that was cause I will be putting out more book reviews. May twice a month, but will still have my rainy thoughts. But enough about reviews, onto the review for today. Here is my review of The Dark Between Stars by Atticus .                                  A Little Overview Atticus is a very interesting person, one that I would love to interview *cough cough.* I say interesting because he doesn't talk directly about who he is on his website or social media.

Rainy Thoughts: Date Your Best Friend

Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing swell! If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you may have seen that I went to see Wicked with my best friend. I wanted to see that musical with her because, well, the musical is about friendship. So naturally, I took my best friend to see it. My best friend and I have been bet friends since our junior year of high school and friends since the second grade when I went up to her and asked if she wanted to play and she looked at me dead in the face and replied, "No." What do I mean by Date your best friend? Simple. Date your best friend. Done. Do it! Trust me, you won't ever regret it. Why Date Your Best Friend?   Because you will find that dating your best friend will help you to see what you want in your next partner. When you're in a relationship, you tend to give in to what the other wants/does and you shouldn't settle. But when you date your best friend, you find out how you actually want to be treated and
