Book Review: Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

Book Review: Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

Greek mythology and paranormal romance?!?! How could I not jump at the chance to check out Josephine Angelini’s debut novel for myself?! I really wanted to love this book from beginning to end, but honestly, I didn’t love it until the late middle/end of the book. It started off really slow and Angelini throws in all these bits and pieces to the puzzle at odd times that I often found… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 28 – I Want My Mommy!

Project BG2 0

Well, well, well…looks like my baby is another week older, another week wiser, and another week cuter! BG2 is doing great! Growing bigger by the day and more perceptive. It amazes me how much she’s learning everyday and her curiosity is so precious. We’re trying more new foods for her to nibble on like cheetos, crackers, popsicles, etc. She loves trying new foods, even if she ends up gagging on… Read more »

Review: Nosefrida Snotsucker

Reviews 3

Say what!?!? You want me to suck out the snot from my baby’s nose!??! Yes!!! The NoseFrida Snot Sucker was developed by Mompreneur Kaisa Levine based on her experience with this kind of product on a vacation overseas. Every parent has to deal with it, babies produce mucus, or snot, when they’re sick or have allergies and they have no way of getting it out without our help. The common… Read more »

Book Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 14 ★★★★★

Reminiscent of The Mortal Instruments, fans of that series will devour Half-Blood. Armentrout draws the reader in with an action-packed first chapter that leaves you wanting more. Alex is sarcastic, outgoing, adventurous, and a force to be reckoned with. She adds humor and light to story and I immediately liked her, which is uncommon for me since the lead girl usually starts out so niave and irritating that I’m always… Read more »

Review: Heely’s

Reviews 0

Ever since Heely’s first came out, I always wanted to try them out! Kids seem to have so much fun with them and I’ve seen them in shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and thought, “Cool!” So I was super excited to get the chance to review a pair for my daughter! Of course, she had to pick sparkly shoes (Sassy 7656)! Once they came in, she was in awe. After… Read more »

Book Review: A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young

Book Review: A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

I’ve been hearing rave reviews about this book from Suzanne Young so I had to see what all the hype was about. In A Need So Beautiful, Young takes a subject popular to many authors nowadays, an angel, and gives it a dramatic and memorable twist. She definitely puts a different spin on the purpose of angels and shows the reader the pains and hardships that they have to face…. Read more »
