Where in the world did I go?

Hey guys!

VERY LONG TIME since I last posted on this blog. It’ll probably be a long time before I do again. Why? you ask… So I got really involved in Booktube. I have almost 2K subscribers and met some of the most amazing people ever including my two best friends.

I’ve slowed down on that quite a bit as well though. I got married last year in June and ended up working in a library around January. My life has been super busy and full of excitement. If you want to catch up with me feel free to watch any and all of my videos on YouTube.

Anyway, I came back to the world of blogging, again you may ask why… Well I’m 8 months pregnant and doing videos regularly has become quite the challenge. I started doing mommy vlogs and sharing my passion for all that on my channel. However, it’s getting hard to have the energy to not just film but to sit and edit a video. So I started a new blog – Musketeer Mom. The mom part of the name is pretty obvious but the musketeer part is because of course I couldn’t just name my child a typical name… it had to come from a book. That book being The Three Musketeers and my sons (OH YEAH, I’m having a boy lol!) name being Dartagnan.

I figured if any of you still followed this blog and were wondering where in the cosmos I went and what I’m up to now, I’d let you know! haha

I hope you come on over to Musketeer Mom and check out some of my posts! I may try and get more active on this blog as well.

Much love!

Happy Blogiversary!


So my blog is officially one!!! It’s interesting to me that the reason I started this blog was because I was going through a rough time in my life. I had just dropped out of nursing school because I was having health problems, my Aunt Brenda had been diagnosed with breast cancer, my grandmother had passed, and my fiance’s great-grandmother passed. All within the span of a month. It was a lot to take in and I didn’t give myself time to grieve. I realized the importance of being able to mourn the loss of someone you love.

Monday morning I woke up to a text message from my mom saying my Aunt Brenda had passed. Earlier this month my mom got a call saying that Brenda had gone to the doctor and they told her she had Leptomeningeal Carcinomatosis. Basically, her cancer had spread through her spinal fluid to her brain. They gave her two weeks to two months to live. The last few days have been rough, but that’s not the reason I’m posting this. It’s just interesting to see that literally a year ago I was going through the same thing.

On the happier side of things, I finally got my video done. I know it’s two weeks late. But I’m sure you can see how crazy things have been lately. Here it is! It’s all about the struggles of a female gamer!


Thanks guys for the year of support! It seriously means the world to me! I hope you keep reading my blog and watching my videos! If you ever have any suggestions of video’s you would like to see, feel free to let me know!

Happy Reading & Gaming,

ARC of The Crimson Gate!

So I recently had the privilege of reading an advanced copy of The Crimson Gate by Whitney Miller! I met her last year at one of the signings I went to and really adored her. I was excited to finally read her book The Violet Hour and it’s sequel The Crimson Gate. I decided to do a video review of both and I posted it this past Saturday! If you haven’t had the chance to watch it, do it! I was really excited that the author loved it so much and has been sharing it like crazy on twitter!

If you haven’t already, follow me on twitter! Alyjoshaver

ALSO! I had one of my really good friends make me an intro to my videos! YOU HAVE TO SEE IT! I adore it! 🙂

Enjoy! Sorry if I scare you! Haha!!! Please like and subscribe! I’ll love you forever!

Happy Reading!


P.S. New video on Saturday on my March TBR!


February Reads


Picture from Mishfish13

So February is coming to an end and I figured I would recap my reads from this month! I read a total of 7 books this month which is pretty good. Especially since I started a new job this month and I’m a full time student. I am only one book behind on my Goodreads challenge which is confusing because at 1am this morning I was on track…? Anyway here is what I read this month!

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

2. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

3. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

4. The Violet Hour by Whitney Miller

5. The Crimson Gate by Whitney Miller

6. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

7. Switched by Amanda Hocking

I was really pleased with all my book choices this month! I’m continuing the Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking right now and then I plan on finishing the Maze Runner books after. Then I have a 14 book series called The Wheel of Time that a friend loaned me that I plan on trucking through.

What about you guys? How was your February reading?

Happy Reading,
