I, Cosmo! ~ Book Review! ^^ (ft. the most amatuer book reviewer ever – a.k.a me, Maya)

Heyyyy people!

How are ya?

Today, we’re going to be review a book called I, Cosmo! It’s a really beautiful book!

Ok then! Let’s start!

Credit to: Waterstones

Title: I, Cosmo

Author: Carlie Sorosiak

Pages: 263

Synopsis:

Cosmo’s family is falling apart.

And it’s up to Cosmo to keep them together.

He knows exactly what to do.

There’s only one problem.

Cosmo is a Golden Retriever.

Plot:

Wowwwww, I love this book!!! The plot is super original! Sure, it’s a like any other typical dog story, but it’s different from all the others at the same time! Basically, I, Cosmo is about Cosmo, a dog, who wants to keep his family together. So, when one day he has the chance to enter a music competition that could help Max and Emmaline’s (his owners) parents stop divorcing, despite his age, he decides to try. Wow that was a complicated sentence-

A golden retriever narrates a hilarious, heart-tugging tale of a dog and his humans as he tries to keep his family together while everything around them falls apart. Ever since Cosmo became a big brother to Max ten years ago, he’s known what his job was: to protect his boy and make him happy.‘ – Amazon (I think Amazon did a better job of describing it but whatever.)

Characters:

I love all the characters, from Cosmo himself, Max, Emmaline, Mom, Dad, Uncle Reggie, and the sheepdog! One of the best things are Cosmo’s comments! They’re so funny, and, to be honest, very true! “Max’s father, who’s name is Dad…”, “He [Max] can even unscrew the lids off peanut butter jars. I’d like to see a giraffe do that.” and there’s loads more! I love how Carlie Sorosiak just really emerses herself into her characters in this book! Also, the sheepdog has the sweetest character arc at the end! ๐Ÿ˜

Rating:

(How cute are those stars, though?)

I’m rating it five starsssssss! It’s a really beautiful book, and I’m recommending it like crazy! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ ITS JUST SO GOOOOOOD EIFWGRERIGIJMFRIORIJ VOVJ EOJVO E IO EJEJ EROIER J

Not me just realising that I have 128+ followers- THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING GUYSSSSSS

Aaaaaanyways, back to the book, READ IT PLEASE PLEASE IT’S SO BEAUTIFULLLLLLLLLLLLLLL ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘ˆ ๐ŸŒผ

Ok guys, that’s all for today! I’m sorry I couldn’t make this review longer, it’s my first time writing a book review, and, hey, I’m gonna cringe while reading this one day anyway, so I’m not gonna try to improve it. ๐Ÿ˜Œ lazy Maya ๐Ÿฅฑ

See y’all soon! โค

Yessss new sign-off >:)

Edit: I just realised this is my 50th post!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Emotional Poems! ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’•

Heyyy everybodyyy! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹

Todayyy, I’m doing some poems! Three, to be exact.

Now, these aren’t actual uhm, emotional poems. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Nah… I’m pretty new to poem writing. I don’t trust myself to not embarrass myself. That… doesn’t make sense, Maya. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Aaaaanyways, let’s start! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’•

Joy! ๐ŸŒŸโœจ

That leaping feeling, hidden away most of the time
Overshadowed by others who deem themselves better, and more commonly used
In the rare times it comes out of its home
I revel in it and rejoice
The world is joyful
Peace among the nations
No dying, no fading away
No hurting, no pain
Only joy.
Joy, and me.
Me and joy.
Twirling around in our own little world.
Oblivious to anything else.

Grief ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿฅ€

It blurs my vision, forcing me to see the bad, and only the bad in the world
It trips me up and pushes me into deep pits of sadness, anger and pain
It whispers in my ear anywhere and everywhere,
They’re gone, somewhere where you can’t retrieve them.
It hurts to meet, and I love the moments when it dulls
And though it may leave, for however long,
I always dread it coming back, swallowing another thing I love.

Fear ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘พ

My heart skips a beat.
Is that creaking what it should be?
Or is it a monster?
That one from my dreams.
People tell me that it can’t be true.
But in the dead of the night,
I hear sounds.
Sounds no walking or dropping could imitate.
They come from my wardrobe.
The one at the back of my room.
The door opens.
I am faced with my greatest fear.

Well! I hate to end the post on such a spooky you wish, Maya ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ note, but it’s time to go for now. ๐Ÿ’– I’ll see you next time on the 27th! (Or… nearer? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ mYsTeRyyyy)

Thank You for 100 Followers!!! || NAME REVEALLLLL || RANDOM THINGS ๐ŸŒป

GUYS. IT’S. FINALLY. HERE.

THE ONE YOU’VE ALLLL BEEN WAITING FOR.

MY NAME REVEAL.

HERE GOES:

MY NAME IS-

Wait, wait, wait! CUT! THIS IS NOT HOW WE START THE POST! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Wow, how awkward is this I can’t wait to see the look on my face when I read this a year later ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘€ Shame I can’t teleport a camera into the future so I can see what I look like ๐Ÿ˜•

Aaaaaaanyways, welcome, everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹ How are you today?

So, y’all know what you’re here for. Prepare for… uhm, quite a lot of things. This might as well be called an explosion of cringyness. Yippee. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ‘

Okay then, let’s JUMP INTO THE POOOOST!! ๐Ÿฆ˜ Y’get it? Kangaroos jump and- no, I’ll spare my future self and not be cringy in this exact moment in history. Oh, whoops. Just embarrased myself. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great.


Thank you, everyone!

No, really, I want to thank you all for what you’ve done for me.

This blog has LITERALLY changed my life.

Blogging is now one of my great passions, and when I read your beautiful comments, I can’t help smiling. I will forever remember the day when little PottahWand decided to start a blog. Even if I ended up changing the whole blog topic early on, it doesn’t matter. I tried. I changed, and I’m still here!

Okay, this is getting pretty sentimental, but one last thank you to YOU. You might not be following my blog, but I don’t care. The fact that you actually went onto this blog is pretty amazing. I’m very proud of this small patchwork of the big blanket that is the internet. Wow, a metaphor. My teacher would be proud. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Peace. โœŒ๏ธ


Alrighhhhht! That’s my very short thank you- uhh piece of this post? I dunno. ๐Ÿ˜‚

OOOOOKAY, NOW, ITZ TIME FOR THE RANDOM THINGS!

Yeah, I’m really leaving my name reveal till last. But, wait, don’t scroll down yet! Unless you passionately hate cringiness, weirdness, and randomness. Oh, and I can’t forget about craziness, of course! Well, if you hate any of those things, then spare yourself and scroll down. *nods sadly* ๐Ÿ˜”

JOKE 3#

A prince was put under a spell so that he could speak only one word each year. If he didnโ€™t speak for two years, the following year he could speak two words and so on.

One day, he fell in love with a beautiful lady. He refrained from speaking for two whole years so he could call her โ€œmy darling.โ€ But then he wanted to tell her he loved her, so he waited three more years.  At the end of these five years, he wanted to ask her to marry him, so he waited another four years. 

Finally, as the ninth year of silence ended, he led the lady to the most romantic place in the kingdom and said, โ€œMy darling, I love you! Will you marry me?โ€ 

And the lady said, โ€œPardon?โ€

NOOO THE POOR PRINCE NUUUU ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Ok.

It’s time.

The big one.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

My name’s Maya. ๐Ÿ˜

Yep. That’s the truth.

Heh heh. ๐Ÿ˜…

In case anyone pronounces it wrong (don’t worry, it’s happened a lot. ๐Ÿ˜‚) then, my name pronunciation in Ma-yuh, not May-a.

I’ve seen a few others Mayas in the blogosphere, so you guys can still call me PottahWand. To be honest, it’s grown on me. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Soooo… yep, that’s it! You know my name, you know that I’ve gone crazy but to be honest I’ve been crazy for most of my life aand you know that it’s, sadly, the end of the post! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I’ll see ya soon, guys! โค

Hopefully I’ll have stopped being so irrational and random by then…

Thank you to Eesh for making this sign-off for me! ๐Ÿ˜

New Schedule! (REALLY- NOT THIS AGAIN ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ)

Hey, guys!

I guess you can see what’s happening here. ๐Ÿ˜…

Aaaanyways, let’s get to the ACTUAL thing. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

My new schedule will be Friday. ๐Ÿ—“

As much as I LOVE posting twice a week, it’s kinda hard, and I spend quite a lot of time reading your guys’ posts. No complaints there – your posts are amazing! ๐Ÿคฉ And, well it’ll be easier if I only have to write one post each week. โœ๐Ÿ’ป

But, occasionally, I will post a proper post along with my regular Friday posts ๐Ÿ˜‰, since I don’t really want to make you guys wait a whole week for my AMAZING haha, sarcasm ๐Ÿ˜ƒ posts.

Okay, then. See you guys on Friday! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ˜Œ

Hello, my dear amigos!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
As you can see by the title, I’m doing a tag again!! Or is it an award? I mean, I know it says award, but a tag has questions, and this is an award that had questions. ๐Ÿค”

I love my family, friends and this blog! You all have become very deer to me! Wooow look it’s a Harry Potter reference ๐Ÿ‘€ yeah, you definitely didn’t expect that from me! But no, seriously, I do love you guys LOADS! You guys have become a part of my life!!!

2. Your dream place?

Oooh, good question! Lemme think… my dream place…

The snow is falling, thick and fast, when you come to rest behind a frosty window. Inside, a merry fire is lit, and Harry Potter soundtracks are heard in the distance. PottahWand is drinking hot chocolate with marshmellows, eating popcorn, and rereading the Harry Potter series. She is wrapped in a cosy blanket burrito, and despite the clock telling her it was 1 o’ clock in the morning, she’s too absorbed to see nor care.

Yep, that’s my dream place! *cough, no surprises there, cough*

3. Your role model?

My role model is… gosh, I have a few. ๐Ÿ˜…

She’s an AMAZING artist, and I love watching her videos! They really help me with my art! *cough* I talk too much about her, don’t I? Just visit her channel and you’ll โœจ u n d e r s t a n d w h a t I m e a n โœจ

When I was 6 or 7-ish, I thought I was a cat. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿฑ

I dunno why, I just did. ๐Ÿ˜‚

If I was annoyed, I’d growl or hiss, and I um, I’m really not sure why I thought I was one. ๐Ÿ˜ถ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿค”

6. Tea or coffee?

Tea!!! I HATE anything bitter, ESPECIALLY dark chocolate or coffee. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜– Im trying to drink more tea, though, because I don’t really drink it, and I prefer it cold. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ oH loOk aNoThEr cRaZy WEirD tHiNg aBoUt mE

You ever heard of iced tea, PottahWand? ๐Ÿ˜‘

7. If you donโ€™t want to live where you are currently, then where would you like to live?

I don’t want to move to anywhere else, but if I had to… I’d move to… AGGH, CHOICESSS… well, asuming I could speak the language well, I’d live in Canada! It seems fun, and, yeah, why not? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I’ve also read in a book that around 20,000 years ago, an ice sheet covered the Hudson Bay, and the surrounding area. The ice sheet squashed the rock down, and less rock = less mass, and less mass = less gravity! Apparently it’s ever so slightly weaker there than in the rest of the world, and, hey, why not try and jump higher? I’d really love to be able to fly, but if less gravity means more of a chance, then, well, y’never know. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

My Questions:

  1. If you could tell everyone in the world ONE thing, what would it be?
  2. If you had the chance to make a quote, what would it be?
  3. What’s something that you’re proud of?
  4. If you could describe your WHOLE life in one word or a phrase, what would it be?
  5. What’s your passion?
  6. What superpower would you have, if you could have one?
  7. Family or friends first?

My Nominations:

Haha, I’m sorry, I couldn’t think of anyone else. ๐Ÿ˜…

Thank you so much again for nominating me, Eesh!

I hope my nominees have fun answering my questions!!!

Adios, for now! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Why am I saying stuff in Spanish I’m not even Spanish-

What Just Happened?!

๐Ÿšจ This is an emergency post, there’s no featured image, and Friday’s post will come as usual. ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿšจ

Hey everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹

So, um, I just hit 100 followers!!!!!!!!!!

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!?!?!?

I’ll be writing a thank you post soon, maybe in a week or so, along with… something else in that post. ๐Ÿ˜ (Edit: Just look in the comments if you want to know. ๐Ÿ˜‚)

AGGGH GUYS THANK YOU SO MUCHHHHH!!!!!!!
