Book Review: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★½

Since I was already a fan of Cassandra Clare from her Mortal Instruments series, I knew I had to give the Infernal Devices series a try. I’ve also been hearing a lot of great things about it from other readers so I couldn’t wait to dive into it. Let’s just say, when comparing both series, I was immediately captured with City of Bones, while it took me quite awhile to… Read more »

I Almost Lost It Today

I Almost Lost It Today

BG2, Parenting 20

BG2 is not your average baby when it comes to the bottle. For some reason, she just isn’t a fan. Eventually we resorted to only feeding her a bottle when she naps and sleeps at night, which averages out to 3-4 bottles (18-24 oz) a day. It was tough, but we managed. Then came time to make the BIG SWITCH to cow’s milk. And we thought she wasn’t a fan… Read more »

Book Review: Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★½

It’s a modern day world where people born after “the Shift” can see and talk to ghosts, whether they want to or not. Most of the ghosts are just trying to finish their unfinished business so they can pass on, and many people have taken to helping them, the government even has an agency that keeps them in check, in case they go bad (turn “Shade”). They’ve even developed ways… Read more »

One Tree Hill Through the Years

One Tree Hill Through the Years

Promotional 4

If you didn’t already know, I’m a big One Tree Hill fan. The drama, the characters, the music; I love it all. After campaigning for their 9th and last season a few months back, I was lucky enough to receive some actual props from the TV set as a thank you. I was just expecting a single prop, since it wasn’t required and I didn’t even know I was getting… Read more »

Book Review: The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder

Book Review: The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

As a typical “Mean Girls” kind of book, this one had me thoroughly entertained. Amy Holder’s writing is quite comedic and her characters were fun and relatable. We all know the story about a girl who makes into the “It Crowd” only to learn it’s not what it seems and discovers positive things about herself, while finding a way to “take down” the reigning “Queen of High School”. I loved… Read more »

Book Review: A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink

Book Review: A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★★★

I’ll admit, when I first heard about this book and looked at the cover I wasn’t really interested, Yes, I judge books by their cover even though I’ve learned that I shouldn’t and am sometimes surprised. This would be one of those times where I basically floored with how awesome and enthralling this book is. From the very first page, Michelle Zink drew me in and I found myself flipping… Read more »

Book Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Book Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★★

I haven’t read too many fae books, so I still enjoy reading about them and this series is one I’m eager to continue. It was a bit long-winded and some details didn’t really do anything for me, but it was still interesting and Kagawa painted a very vivid and beautiful picture of the faery world, the different courts and creatures. This first book introduces us to Meghan, a seemingly ordinary… Read more »
