Project BG2, Week 21 – Fussy! Fussy! Fussy!

Project BG2, Week 21 – Fussy! Fussy! Fussy!

Project BG2 5

BG2 is another week older, smarter, cuter, and fussier! This girl has been going crazy lately. I don’t know if she’s teething or what but she hasn’t been very happy lately. Usually she sleeps very well at night, we have to wake her up to feed her, but lately she’s been waking up crying or fussing and won’t even take a bottle. Not to mention it takes even longer than… Read more »

* In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren* This week is full of reviews and that means I better get cracking on those books if I’m to get them up in time. They’re starting to pile up! They’re awesome books though and I really can’t wait to read them.               For Review: Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz Legacy by… Read more »

Book Review: Night Star by Alyson Noel

Book Review: Night Star by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

This is the 5th installment in The Immortals Series by Alyson Noel and it just might be her best one yet. Night Star has all the makings of an excellent book – danger, drama, love, mystery, and wonderful characters that you’ll surely enjoy. I honestly couldn’t put this book down, wanting to know what happens next and how it will all end. Alyson did a fantastic job developing Haven as… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 20 – Finally Got That Arm Out From Under Me

Project BG2, Week 20 – Finally Got That Arm Out From Under Me

Project BG2 1

Alright! It’s Week 20 for BG2 and that means she’s “5 months”. Time is flying by! Why do they grow so quickly?!?! BG2 is eating her solids very well and is often seen smacking her lips together oh-so-cutely throughout the day. It’s so funny when she sees her plate of food and a spoon nearing her mouth she opens nice and wide, even if a lot of it ends up… Read more »

Book Review: Dark Flame by Alyson Noel

Book Review: Dark Flame by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

This is the 4th book in The Immortals Series by Alyson Noel and I have to say, it just keeps getting better. When I first started this series, I really liked it, but didn’t think I would love it. But as each book progressed and I saw the changes in the characters and the intensity of the plotline and drama, I really grew to love it. In this book you… Read more »

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

This is the 2nd book in The Mortal Instruments Series and I have to say Cassandra Clare didn’t disappoint. I was definitely eager to find out what happened next for Clary and Jace. I think this book had more action and kept me going more so than the first, although I loved the first book. The pace seemed quicker to me and kept me turning pages. Not only are even… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 19 – Eating & Sitting

Project BG2 3

We’re rolling right on thru this Month 4 into Week 19! We’ve officially started BG2 on solids, using homemade rice porridge with broccoli and carrots. She’s actually taking it very well, eating the whole plate that we make her every time and we feed her it once a day in the mornings. I was so proud of her for eating so well on the first day, she’s a rabid eater… Read more »

* In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren* Well, I was originally planning on doing a vlog of this week’s IMM because it covers my book hauls for the past couple weeks and it’s a good one, but I really don’t like myself on camera and there just wasn’t enough time to do and redo everything so I’m just going to do the usual pictures….

Book Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★½

I know I’m super late in reading this series but I’m so glad I finally did. Although not a “can’t put it down” book, I really enjoyed it and found Cassandra Clare’s writing to be descriptive and captivating. Clare does a great job of describing the characters and the scenery so that you can really picture it in your head. I love her use of words to paint a vivid… Read more »
