Book Review: Tempest by Julie Cross

Book Review: Tempest by Julie Cross

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

The cover caught my attention. The premise is what drew me in. Add that fact that it was told from a male’s POV, I had to check it out. I find it’s often difficult to write a good time-traveling book since the issue can be a bit confusing, story lines have to be kept severely in check, and you have to figure out what rules you want to play by….

Love This Cover! #3

Love This Cover! #3

Books 0

I decided to shorten the title to “Covers ATM” since it’s shorter and I’m lazy. LOL! You get the point though. These are covers I’m totally & irrevocably in love with at the moment. 🙂    The Evolution of Mara Dyer – I loved the cover for the first book, and I have to say I love this just as much, if not more. It’s so awesome how it resembles… Read more »

Book Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

Book Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★½

I’m a big fan of Julie Kagawa, loved her Iron Fey series, so when I heard she was writing about vampires, with the web going crazy about it, I just knew I had to see what all the hype was about. I’m sad to say I was a bit disappointed with this book though. Don’t get me wrong, Kagawa’s writing is superb in that she writes a scene so vivid… Read more »

Book Review: Supernaturally by Kiersten White

Book Review: Supernaturally by Kiersten White

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

After how much I loved and raved about Paranormalcy, I was eager to read Supernaturally, but was a bit disappointed at how uneventful it was. We join Evie 6 months after Paranormalcy ends to see how she’s enjoying a “normal life” and she ends up spicing things up by working with the IPCA again. There’s also a new character, Jack, who stirs things up a bit and has a key… Read more »

Chocolate Truly is the Best Medicine

BG2, Parenting 5

Our prayers have been answered! After weeks and weeks of endless battles with the baby, I’ve finally found her happy place. CHOCOLATE!!! That’s right, the girl loves her chocolate milk. One squirt of that yummy syrup or even a spoonful of powder in her milk and she can’t finish it fast enough! Hallelujah! Praise the skies above for we have found our savior! Okay, enough of that. I’m honestly just… Read more »

Book Review: Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Oh, after hearing the rave reviews and endless praise for this book, how could I not give it a read?! And I’m pleased to say this book did not disappoint. Evie’s hilarious and entertaining character drew me in from the very first page. I love how addicted she is to this teen drama show, Easton Heights, a shared love with her best friend Lish, who happens to be a mermaid…. Read more »

The Love of a Sister

The Love of a Sister

BG1, BG2, Parenting 15

Sisters truly are one of the best things in life. I, personally, have a pretty good relationship with my little sister who is 5 years younger than me, which is a pretty big but decent gap. When I found out I was having another girl, I was worried that since BG1 is over 6 years older than the baby, they might not play together at all. I found I was… Read more »
