Project BG3: Week 49 – Eating Less and Less

Project BG3: Week 49 – Eating Less and Less

Project BG3 0

Still no signs of walking yet with this girl. She still prefers to be held, especially by me, or else she’s cruising around the living room via the couch and coffee table. She doesn’t seem to like her walker much anymore for some reason. She’s been consistent with the “mama” and “dada” words and I can tell she knows which word refers to which person. Not really sure what will… Read more »

Book Review: Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Book Review: Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

One Line: Quirky and entertaining. I really liked this one. Ah, the YA Contemp genre, always a fickle one for me. I have to be extra careful about what I choose to read and review in this genre because most are misses. I had never read anything by Alsaid before, but after hearing a lot of positive things about his writing and his previous book, Let’s Get Lost (of which… Read more »

Book Review: No Kissing Allowed by Melissa West

Book Review: No Kissing Allowed by Melissa West

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: A sweet, no frills kind of love story. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve read my fair share of “forbidden” romance books and No Kissing Allowed isn’t bad. I definitely didn’t love it like I was hoping, but I did enjoy it. I don’t know why I went into this thinking there would be more of a push and pull or a resistance that either character or… Read more »

Book Review: Over the Top by Rebecca Zanetti

Book Review: Over the Top by Rebecca Zanetti

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: It was nice to see Dawn get her HEA. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Zanetti has managed to attract and hold my attention with this Brazen series and I’ve loved getting to know the Lodge and Freeze siblings. Their family is the best, so welcoming, caring, and close. After seeing the brothers get their HEA, it was time to see if the baby girl of the group,… Read more »

Book Review: A Touch of Chardonnay by Pamela Gibson

Book Review: A Touch of Chardonnay by Pamela Gibson

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: Light, fluffy, and sweet. In My Opinion: Worth a try! It has been way to long since I read a Bliss book and I think it was overdue. Sometimes it’s nice to read a romantic story with minimal drama and angst, despite it not being all that realistic. Once in awhile I like to read the fairy tale without any expectations. Here you’ve got two characters who spent… Read more »

Book Review: Get Dirty by Gretchen McNeil

Book Review: Get Dirty by Gretchen McNeil

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

One Line: Even better and more riveting than the first book! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I just love it when a sequel is even more addicting as its predecessor. I will admit that I didn’t believe McNeil could pull it off. This had nothing to do with her personally, just that it’s hard to put enough substance into a mystery sequel to make it worthwhile most of the… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 48 – 11 Months Young!

Project BG3: Week 48 – 11 Months Young!

Project BG3 0

ELEVEN months! Well, it looks like BG3 is breaking the trend of progressively earlier walking that I thought the girls were going to do. But, when I think about it, it honestly doesn’t matter. Since BG3 is my last baby, I’m just cherishing the “baby moments” while they last. Once they start walking they’ll be walking for the rest of their lives pretty much, so why not enjoy it while… Read more »

Book Review: Loving Dallas by Caisey Quinn

Book Review: Loving Dallas by Caisey Quinn

New Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A sweet second chance love story! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Having not read the first book in the series, I wasn’t familiar with any of the characters in this book. Usually with companion novels this isn’t an issue, but it was kind of an issue here. It didn’t take away from Dallas and Robyn’s story/romance, but it would’ve helped me connect to and understand Dallas’ mindset… Read more »

Book Review: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

Book Review: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

Young Adult Book Reviews 8 ★★★★

One Line: A story of a quirky family that charmed me in many ways. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve been a fan of Kinsella’s ever since her Shopaholic series so many years ago so of course I jumped at the chance to read her ventures into the YA genre. I think, for the most part, I enjoyed Finding Audrey. Audrey’s family is made up of very quirky characters,… Read more »

Book Review: Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

Book Review: Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

One Line: Such a touching and emotional read. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This was my first book by Kirby and I really liked it. Everyone deals with loss in different ways and there’s no absolute way to do it. For Quinn, she coped with the loss of Trent by needing to know where his organs were now and how they helped those lives he saved. I can definitely… Read more »

Book Review: Even the Score by Kate Meader

Book Review: Even the Score by Kate Meader

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: I just love me those Southern men! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Ah! This is exactly why I love reading this imprint. Even the Score combined the sexy with the substance in all the right places and I just couldn’t get enough of Tess and Hunter. I always get a kick out of the “fake fiance/relationship” trope because you just know they’ll end up falling for each… Read more »

Book Review: If You Dare by Jessica Lemmon

Book Review: If You Dare by Jessica Lemmon

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: Fun and flirty, just how I like it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! If You Dare was a fun and charming book. You get a sweet romance, plenty of steamy scenes, a good amount of drama, and a bit of mystery thrown in for good measure. Lemmon really won me over with her characters though, especially Marcus. He may be a typical playboy, but he genuinely likes… Read more »
