Bookends #9: Goosebumps, Christmas Titles, and YouTube Channel!

Well, it's been awhile since my last Bookends post, which was back in July. The summer months were very busy for me, especially when I had to kick myself in the butt and started exercising again. Since August I have loss a total of 21.5 pounds (as of today), which mostly occurred after I changed my eating habits. Tomorrow, I begin week 7 of Beachbody's Insanity workout program. I have loss 12.5 of those 21.5 pounds since I started the program.

If you've been reading this blog for the last few weeks, then you would know I have fallen behind in reviewing books. Actually, I have about 20 already read books that are piled up waiting to be reviewed. This why I had recently began a new series of posts called "Review Catch Up Marathon." Hopefully, I can try to get these books reviewed by November 1st. 

What am I currently reading?

I'm currently reading Goosebumps Slappyworld: I'm Slappy's Evil Twin. Hopefully, if everything goes as planned, I should have the book read and reviewed by late tonight.

What am I reading next?

Next, I'm reading Cars, Coffee, and a Badass Ninja Toilet by K.C. Hilton. I'll probably start reading it tomorrow. After that book, I'm planning on reading Haunted by James Patterson and James O. Born.

Are there any new books on my bookshelves?

Yes, I've received several new books in the mail.

Shattered Memories by V.C. Andrews
Cars, Coffee, and a Badass Ninja Toliet by K.C. Hilton

I Have a YouTube Channel!

No, my YouTube channel isn't something new, but I did revamp it last week. Why did I do this? Well, it's probably because I've been watching way too many subscription boxes unboxings & reviews by other vloggers, and I;ve figured I can expand this blog by uploading a few vlogs (reviews, ramblings, and maybe some unboxings) on YouTube. My social anxiety has always held me back from appearing in my videos. Well, that is until the end of last week when I made a short Friday the 13th: Worst to Best video, which I posted on Friday the 13th with me dressed as Jason Voorhees. Between wearing the mask and being under the weather with a cold/flu bug, my voice couldn't really be heard. (Plus, I'm a soft speaker to begin with.) So I had to heavily edit the video before I ended up uploading it. 

Feeling a little bit better this morning, I made my first "Bookends Vlog" video. While I was still  nervous about talking to a camera, I came across a lot better in this one. You can watch the vlog at the end of this post. Leave a comment either on this post or YouTube if you like the vlog. Also, I would appreciate if you can subscribe to my YouTube Channel. I only have 31 subscribers! Plus, if you can, please give the Vlog a "thumps up" on YouTube.
