BG3, Project BG3 2

In true blogger tradition, I’m totally going to do a 365 photo challenge for BG3. Each week, on Thursday (the day she was born), you’ll be seeing a picture-a-day that I took of her that week. I loved doing this for BG2 and it’s always fun seeing how babies grow and change over time. So, here’s Week 1! It is so amazing to finally have BG3 in my arms. She’s… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review & Giveaway – Sugar on the Edge by Sawyer Bennett [CLOSED]

Blog Tours, Giveaways, New Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★½

One Line: I can’t get enough of this series! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Bennett definitely has another amazing series where each book is fantastic. Sugar on the Edge was the perfect blend of entertaining and passionate characters, plenty of good drama, and a smattering of sizzling romance. The pacing was steady and I finished this one pretty quickly, as I tend to do with all of Bennett’s books…. Read more »

This month’s bag had a few new things for me that I’m itching to try out, plus an appealing mascara, which I’m always in the market for.

So, below you’ll find the full video where I unbox everything, describe (maybe even test out) the products,… Read more »

Book Review: Boomerang by Noelle August

Book Review: Boomerang by Noelle August

New Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

One Line: A cute and fun read. What I Loved: I really liked the characters. Mia and Ethan were great on their own, but I also enjoyed their interactions and how they both handled the internship. It was fun watching them fight their attraction to each other too and their little spurts of jealousy were so funny and cute. I really loved Mia, surprisingly, especially her relationship with her parents… Read more »

Book Review: Feral by Holly Schindler

Book Review: Feral by Holly Schindler

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★½

One Line: Definitely not my kind of read. What I Loved: I wouldn’t say I loved it, but I did like Claire and Serena’s stories, not in a weird way though. It was interesting what happened to each of them and how the author tied wove them together. Even though I could already figure out what the mystery was behind Serena’s death, it was interesting seeing it all play out,… Read more »

Book Review: Deliverance by C.J. Redwine

Book Review: Deliverance by C.J. Redwine

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

One Line: Definitely a great ending to one heck of a fantasy/dystopian series. I loved these characters so much! In My Opinion: Add to cart! There was definitely an ebb and flow with this book, with this series as a whole. You get plenty of action scenes and I really enjoyed the character development from not just the main characters, but some of the key secondary ones as well. However,… Read more »

As the Bump Grows: Week 39

As the Bump Grows: Week 39

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 3

Well, we’ve made it to the final week. According to the doctors (and my LMP), she’s due on the 20th, but then I’m still sticking with the 25th. I saw the doctor last Thursday and she said everything is still quiet on the cervix front, lol. So, either she comes naturally this week, or we’re scheduling an induction on the 25th. And now for the belly shot: Ugh, I look… Read more »

Book Review: The Dark World by Cara Lynn Shultz

Book Review: The Dark World by Cara Lynn Shultz

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

One Line: Definitely better than I expected. The story kept me engaged and entertained. In My Opinion: Add to cart! The Dark World is about a girl named Paige who, after a near death experience can now talk to ghosts. She also has the power to create a gate between the real world and the “dark world” where paranormal creatures are from. Overall, I really enjoyed this book, more so… Read more »

Book Review: First & Forever by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Book Review: First & Forever by Alyssa Rose Ivy

New Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

One Line: It was nice revisiting this world and seeing these two fall in love through Levi’s eyes. In My Opinion: Worth a try! First and Forever is a compilation of two novellas in one. Both are from Levi’s perspective but in First, you get to see how they first met through his eyes and in Forever, you get to see why them actively fall in love. With both of… Read more »
