Book Review: Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: A satisfying ending in all parts except the romance. In My Opinion: Add to cart! The ending of a series is always bittersweet. As always, I flew through yet another of Jen’s books and it’s safe to say the woman hasn’t quite lost her touch. When she wants you to feel something, dammit, she’s gonna make you feel it. Emotions ran high and all the feels were brought… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 49 – Eating Less and Less

Project BG3: Week 49 – Eating Less and Less

BG3, Project BG3 0

Still no signs of walking yet with this girl. She still prefers to be held, especially by me, or else she’s cruising around the living room via the couch and coffee table. She doesn’t seem to like her walker much anymore for some reason. She’s been consistent with the “mama” and “dada” words and I can tell she knows which word refers to which person. Not really sure what will… Read more »

Book Review: Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Book Review: Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

One Line: Quirky and entertaining. I really liked this one. Ah, the YA Contemp genre, always a fickle one for me. I have to be extra careful about what I choose to read and review in this genre because most are misses. I had never read anything by Alsaid before, but after hearing a lot of positive things about his writing and his previous book, Let’s Get Lost (of which… Read more »

Dr. Seuss Celebratory Blog Tour: The BGs Review – I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! & Giveaway [CLOSED]

Blog Tours, Children's Book Reviews, Giveaways 7 ★★★★½

The BGs Review is a feature on the blog where my daughters and I review children’s books. This review includes my thoughts on the book, as suitable for children, as well as opinions and thoughts from my two oldest “Baby Girls” (ages 10 and 4) aka the BGs. One Line: Such a fun book about the joys of reading. This may be one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. It… Read more »

Book Review: No Kissing Allowed by Melissa West

Book Review: No Kissing Allowed by Melissa West

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: A sweet, no frills kind of love story. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve read my fair share of “forbidden” romance books and No Kissing Allowed isn’t bad. I definitely didn’t love it like I was hoping, but I did enjoy it. I don’t know why I went into this thinking there would be more of a push and pull or a resistance that either character or… Read more »

Book Review: Over the Top by Rebecca Zanetti

Book Review: Over the Top by Rebecca Zanetti

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: It was nice to see Dawn get her HEA. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Zanetti has managed to attract and hold my attention with this Brazen series and I’ve loved getting to know the Lodge and Freeze siblings. Their family is the best, so welcoming, caring, and close. After seeing the brothers get their HEA, it was time to see if the baby girl of the group,… Read more »

So, below you’ll find the full video where I unbox everything and let you know my overall thoughts on it. If you’re not up… Read more »

Book Review: A Touch of Chardonnay by Pamela Gibson

Book Review: A Touch of Chardonnay by Pamela Gibson

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: Light, fluffy, and sweet. In My Opinion: Worth a try! It has been way to long since I read a Bliss book and I think it was overdue. Sometimes it’s nice to read a romantic story with minimal drama and angst, despite it not being all that realistic. Once in awhile I like to read the fairy tale without any expectations. Here you’ve got two characters who spent… Read more »
