Project BG3: Week 14 – Officially 3 Months!

Project BG3: Week 14 – Officially 3 Months!

BG3, Project BG3 0

BG3 was feeling much better this week. Her first cold came and passed with some bad days, of course, but overall, it wasn’t too bad. My heart definitely broke for her at times, but she’s a champ and now as feisty as ever. Although, for some reason, she hasn’t been sleeping as well as she has since getting sick. She’s not sick anymore and no stuffy nose or anything, only… Read more »

Book Review: Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard

Book Review: Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Not as thrilling and exciting as I was hoping, but okay. I finally got around to finishing this series and I read it straight through, for the most part. It did take me quite awhile to get through the whole series though as it wasn’t as interesting as I was hoping. I liked that the first and second books dealt with the zombies and I enjoyed visualizing the… Read more »

Book Review: Dire by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Book Review: Dire by Alyssa Rose Ivy

New Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★½

One Line: Not what I was hoping for exactly, but the ending caught my attention. In My Opinion: Worth a try! Oh, why couldn’t I have enjoyed this book more?! Honestly, this book started off and stayed at around a “2 star” kind of read for me for like 80% of the book. About halfway through I was so ready to give up, but because I genuinely like the author… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 13 – Baby’s First Cold *tear*

Project BG3: Week 13 – Baby’s First Cold *tear*

BG3, Project BG3 1

Sigh, yep. Poor BG3 is suffering through her first bout of sickness right now. I’m so sad! The poor girl is all congested, red-eyed, sniffly, and cranky. I just hate it when my kids are sick, and it’s even worse when it’s your baby, especially when they’re so young. Breaks my heart! As much as I was hoping she would avoid the sickness this winter, everyone has just been getting… Read more »

Book Review: Alex by Sawyer Bennett

Book Review: Alex by Sawyer Bennett

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: Bennett makes me love those Hockey boys! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Yay! Another Bennett book that I thoroughly enjoyed. She never fails to deliver an exceptional romance story between two alluring characters. You’ve got yourself a rough-around-the-edges guy with a troubled past and a strong, independent girl with an equally troubled past who happen to fall in love. Bennett did a great job with explaining each… Read more »

Recently, my family had the chance to test out the new LeapTV gaming system. LeapTV is an “educational, active video gaming system that gets kids up and moving while they learn”. I actually haven’t heard much about it before, but I am all for educational games and Leap Frog is such a great company with some wonderful toys and games for kids. My 3 year old was super excited when… Read more »

Book Review: Diamonds in the Rough by Michelle Madow

Book Review: Diamonds in the Rough by Michelle Madow

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

One Line: One of the rare times that the sequel beats the first book! In My Opinion: Add to cart! While I enjoyed reading The Secret Diamond Sisters, I didn’t really love it all that much. But I wanted to see where Madow was going with this story and I’m so happy I decided to stick with it. Diamonds in the Rough was definitely a standout sequel. Yes, the girls… Read more »

Book Review: Stay by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Book Review: Stay by Alyssa Rose Ivy

New Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Love me some Toby and Jared action! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Stay is the third installment in the Empire Chronicles and after that crazy ending in Search, I was eager to see what would happen to Casey and the gang. So many secrets are revealed in Stay and the truth of Casey’s past and family comes to light. This book focuses more on the bears and… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 12 – Man, That Hand Tastes GOOOOOODDDD!!!!

Project BG3: Week 12 – Man, That Hand Tastes GOOOOOODDDD!!!!

BG3, Project BG3 2

BG3 is laughing more and more. We’re slowly discovering all her ticklish spots and so far, it’s the right side of the neck and her feet. I love making her laugh, it’s the sweetest sound! It’s also pretty funny because her feet and neck are a bit sweaty at the end of the day, so they definitely don’t smell the best, but we can’t help but try look past all… Read more »

Book Review: Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

Book Review: Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

New Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

One Line: The banter was easily my favorite parts of this story and these characters. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Christina Lauren sure knows how to write good contemporary romance! It’s funny because with Sweet Filthy Boy, I really loved Ansel and Mia’s story as a couple as opposed to them as individuals. In Dirty Rowdy Thing, it’s the opposite, and I found I enjoyed reading about Finn and… Read more »
