The Kill Order

12:00 AM


The Kill Order by James Dashner 

Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth and mankind fell to disease.

Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next. Now a disease of rage and lunacy races across the eastern United States, and there’s something suspicious about its origin. Worse yet, it’s mutating, and all evidence suggests that it will bring humanity to its knees.

Mark and Trina are convinced there’s a way to save those left living from descending into madness. And they’re determined to find it—if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some, you’re worth more dead than alive

My Review-
I wasn't sure if I'd like this book to be honest. I am hesitant with prequels to begin with. The only prequel books I have enjoyed is "The Infernal Devices" by Cassandra Clare.  And as much as I loved the Maze Runner series, I still had my doubts about this book.
I finished this book in 3 days.

If i can finish a book in under a week, let alone 3 days, it is pretty dang good.
I have never been so interested in James Dashners characters so much in my life.
I cried reading the prologue. No lie. It was so heartbreak yet so amazing.

If you loved the Maze Runner trilogy you have to read The Kill Order.
I gave it 4/5 stars on my goodreads profile. More like 4.5/5, the only reason I didn't give it a full 5 is it took me a good couple chapters before i was really into it.

The Kill Order is a must read for sure!


Blogs for you

11:53 AM

As much as I hate to admit it. I love READING blogs more than actually writing one. Don't get me wrong I enjoy blogging as much as the next person. But sometimes I like just sitting down with a cup of tea, with a New Girl episode playing in the background, and reading other peoples blogs.

AND no, i'm not drinking tea and watching an episode of New Girl as we speak or as I type......
(note the sarcasm)

Since I am such a connoisseur of blogs and reading them, I thought I would share with you some of my favorites as of late.

Time for another round of

Random thoughts with Samantha 

Have you heard of Songza???? 
If not you should check it out. My government teacher actually showed it to me in her office. Coolest thing since pandora. Just saying! 

Is it sad I'm mad that I can still wear shorts to school? 
I mean, its almost october. Like, could FL get the memo its supposed to be cold?? 

I love chick fil a!
Especially when they give me an extra peach milkshake that they made on accident :) 

My best friend and I like to match. (Same dress, different patterns) 

I like canned fruit.
Now, nothing beats fresh fruit but when you are poor like me... Canned fruit is the next best thing. And it tasts so yummy!

SO, this is going to be a makeshift day outfit post.
Meaning, I took these pictures at different times during the day on my sad little itouch camera.
 So I apologize in advance for the bad quality :/

So remember last weeks post on dresses?? Yea. Yesterday was one of those "40% of the time" days where I really wanted to wear a dress. Mostly cause it was new :)


Dress - Cotton On ($5!) // 

As the day progressed and my hair got more and more in my way, it had to be put into a bun of course! 


The back of the dress is my favorite :) 

Learning the sock bun has been a lifesaver. You must learn it if you haven't yet. Super easy.
Pinterest it! 


Let's Congratulate

Happy Monday readers! 


Be honest

7:33 PM

Alright ladies.
Lets be honest.

TO my guy friends that read my blog. Yes I know you do. Don't deny it!
 You might want to skip this post. Its gonna be about girl talk and such...

Anyway, Lets be honest ladies. Unless you REALLY like dresses. About 40% of the time (maybe even less), do we think.
"Oh, I want to wear a dress today".

Because if you are like me and are attending a small little state college in order to avoid the debt monster that is college tuition, there are few to none girls that wear dresses. Its more along the lines of a competition to see who can wear the shortest shorts, the lowest cut tops, and the tight little yoga pants/shorts.
So, if you do wear a dress, you stick out like a sore thumb.

I will be honest. There are days where i'm like...
"oh, a dress would be nice to wear today."

however 60% of the time its more of like....
"OH! crap. I have to do laundry. I have no jeans, shorts, or shirts to wear. Dress it is."

Dresses become a last resort 60% of the time.
Lets be honest.

However, lets take into account how adorable us girls look in dresses. I mean, yes we may be wearing the dress because we had nothing else to wear because we need to do laundry, but we are going to rock it either way ;)
