Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

I adore Stephanie Perkins’ writing. She made a stellar debut with Anna and the French Kiss and she didn’t disappoint with this one. Lola is definitely a quirky character. Not only does she love wearing the craziest costumes everyday, but she’s also snarky and innocent. Set in San Francisco and living with two fathers, her background is very unique and interesting and you’ll see all of that unfold throughout the… Read more »

One Tree HIll Knows Romance

One Tree HIll Knows Romance

Promotional 1

Definitely one of the best parts of One Tree Hill is its romances and relationships. Throughout the entire series, the characters have built some pretty strong relationships and dealt with a ton of romantic and intimate escapades. Season 8 was no different! Their Valentine’s Day episode was crazy good and I’d have to say my favorite part was when Nathan surprised Haley for Valentine’s Day. I have always been a… Read more »

Book Review: Busted in Bollywood by Nicola Marsh & Giveaway

Book Review: Busted in Bollywood by Nicola Marsh & Giveaway

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

This book definitely drew me in with how unique the plot was. I’m not to familiar with the Indian culture and Nicola does an excellent job of presenting it to her readers without making it feel like a documentary or something. She shows the beauty and appeal of India, with a particular focus on their amazing food. You also learn a bit about their traditions, which ties into why the… Read more »

I just wanted to give you guys a quick heads up that I’ll be moving to WordPress soon. A new year, a new platform. Yay! That means there will be no more GFC for me! Both good and bad I suppose. Having that thing was basically a numbers game that I stopped caring about a long time ago. Not to say I don’t care for those who subscribed to me… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 41 – The Last Week Without Mommy

Project BG2 2

Yay for it being the last week that I’m away from my baby! Come Monday night, she’ll be in my arms once again. Well, there hasn’t been much new going on in the baby world. She’s been more active, crawling around like a maniac and pulling herself up, though. Whenever she’s in Baby Jail she constantly pulls herself up and walks around all cute! She’s been eating more table food… Read more »

Who Is "A"? #PLLJan2

Who Is "A"? #PLLJan2

Promotional 1

The summer finale of Pretty Little Liars left viewers wondering “Who is ‘A‘?” That’s the ongoing mystery the show is hanging on to. Having read the books, I know who the real “A” is, but since the show has been so different and has strayed from details of the books, I’m left wondering if they’ll stay true to who “A” really is. After having watched the Halloween Special, I can… Read more »

Ah, finally, the real and original reason I started this blog. After 5 years, things in our life were settling down and it was the perfect time to start trying to get pregnant. But of course, you don’t have babies on your own schedule, you work around Mother Nature’s schedule. It was a grueling and tedious year, but things worked out for us and I was pregnant! I really don’t… Read more »
