Book Review: Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

Book Review: Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Interesting at times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I was hoping. What I Loved: I really enjoyed Amy as a character. She was very strong-willed and determined, I honestly didn’t even focus on the fact that she has cerebral palsy because she didn’t let it define her. It was just a part of her, but she was so much more than that. I liked that… Read more »

Book Review: The One by Kiera Cass

Book Review: The One by Kiera Cass

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

One Line: A decent conclusion to an interesting trilogy. What I Loved: I loved the whole “Selection” parts of the book. Having America interact with the other girls, the Queen (who was in a Selection of her own), and Maxon was definitely the best parts of the book for me. While competing for a guys attention against several other girls isn’t exactly ideal, it’s true that you kind of develop… Read more »

Book Review: Tamed by Emma Chase

Book Review: Tamed by Emma Chase

Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★½

One Line: A wonderful contemporary romance with fantastic characters. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I gotta admit, Emma Chase knows how to write a sexy, hilarious, witty, and highly-entertaining novel. She nabbed me good with Tangled, but with Tamed, she’s solidified her place as one of my favorite Contemporary Romance authors. I just can’t get enough of her charming characters and addicting writing style. I swear, each time I’m… Read more »

Review: CLEARinse Nasal Cleaning System

Review: CLEARinse Nasal Cleaning System

Reviews 1

I first heard about CLEARinse while I was attending the Biggest Baby Shower event in NYC and I was definitely interested in seeing how this system worked for babies and kids suffering from stuffy noses and congestion. Their website boasts “Clearinse uses a custom pump system that creates similar flow and pressure settings used in hospitals to clear noses. It is the only device that both irrigates and aspirates the… Read more »

Baby Size: About the size of a Honeydew Melon – 5lbs, 18in Gender: Girl Movement: Man, this girl loves to hip check me at times. It comes out of nowhere and even though it’s not painful, it’s crazy… Read more »

Blog Tours, Giveaways, Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: Strong set of characters with a steady-flowing plot. I really enjoyed this one. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I definitely love Kenneally’s writing style. She has a way to make a contemporary both light-hearted and fun, but also deep and meaningful. And she does it well. This would be the second book I’ve read by her and I’ve fairly enjoyed each one. This one stirred a bit… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 4

Half way through the eight month mark! Woohoo! And now for the belly shot: I can really start to tell how round I’m getting, and bigger. Sure, I haven’t really seen my feet (while standing) and my bajingo in months, but now I’m noticing it more. Baby Size: About the size of a Cantaloupe Melon – 4.75lbs, 18in. Gender: Girl Movement: This girl just loves sticking her butt out on… Read more »
