Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family, Tuesdays @ 8/7c) – The season premiere was on Tuesday so you still have time to catch up. Last season left us with Mona getting locked up in the crazy house because she was -A. I love that they’re staying true to the books and I’m hoping they keep that up for this season. I haven’t watched the premiere yet, but I know the whole… Read more »

Glass Heart – It’s such a contrast to Cold Kiss and I love that about this. I’m a big fan of pink, and it’s cool that there’s actually a glass heart she’s kissing. The font is gorgeous too, similar to Cold Kiss. I can’t wait for this book to see how it all ends. Get her in your hands on September 18, 2012.           You Might… Read more »

Happy 27th Birthday to ME!

Happy 27th Birthday to ME!

On My Mind 6

Well, the day has finally come. I’m officially 27 years old. Doesn’t it suck that birthdays don’t really make you feel any different, especially when you’re older?! Sure when you were a kid you’d get all excited and happy, you’d get a TON of presents and your friends and family would shower you with birthday wishes, cards, balloons, and that oh-so-special birthday cake. Nowadays, it’s all about the Facebook “Happy… Read more »

Book Review: Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Book Review: Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★★

Maybe because it’s been awhile since I read about witches or maybe it was because Jessica focused on a time period where witchcraft was still misunderstood, but I really enjoyed this book. Jessica did a great job creating this world where witches live in secret and the community is ruled by a bunch of religiously cynical men. I loved that I hated them so much. Now I’m one of those… Read more »

A Purplicious Birthday Party

A Purplicious Birthday Party

BG2, Parenting 5

I know I’m 3 months late, no excuses, but here goes. So for BG2’s birthday I wanted to stay away from characters since I did this whole Princess Party for BG1 and there weren’t any characters BG2 really liked. I also wanted to stay away from PINK because BG1 is pink enough for all of us. And, going with the trend of the time, I wanted cupcakes. The plan was… Read more »

Book Review: A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies

Book Review: A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I pretty much finished Beautiful Dark in one sitting. Now that’s not to say it was an epic story that you have to read right now, but for some reason I was compelled to turn the pages to see what would happen next. The characters were fun, the plot original and different, and the story didn’t drag on. I liked… Read more »

Book Review: Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Book Review: Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

Now, it’s been quite awhile since I read Hourglass and I have to admit that I was pretty confused for like the first quarter of the book. I’d highly recommend you re-read Hourglass because Myra dives right into it without giving details of what really happened in the last book. You should also know that Timepiece is told from Kaleb’s perspective rather than Emerson’s, which I liked a lot since… Read more »
