Book Review: Get Dirty by Gretchen McNeil

Book Review: Get Dirty by Gretchen McNeil

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

One Line: Even better and more riveting than the first book! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I just love it when a sequel is even more addicting as its predecessor. I will admit that I didn’t believe McNeil could pull it off. This had nothing to do with her personally, just that it’s hard to put enough substance into a mystery sequel to make it worthwhile most of the… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 48 – 11 Months Young!

Project BG3: Week 48 – 11 Months Young!

BG3, Project BG3 0

ELEVEN months! Well, it looks like BG3 is breaking the trend of progressively earlier walking that I thought the girls were going to do. But, when I think about it, it honestly doesn’t matter. Since BG3 is my last baby, I’m just cherishing the “baby moments” while they last. Once they start walking they’ll be walking for the rest of their lives pretty much, so why not enjoy it while… Read more »

Book Review: Loving Dallas by Caisey Quinn

Book Review: Loving Dallas by Caisey Quinn

New Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A sweet second chance love story! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Having not read the first book in the series, I wasn’t familiar with any of the characters in this book. Usually with companion novels this isn’t an issue, but it was kind of an issue here. It didn’t take away from Dallas and Robyn’s story/romance, but it would’ve helped me connect to and understand Dallas’ mindset… Read more »

Book Review: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

Book Review: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

Young Adult Book Reviews 8 ★★★★

One Line: A story of a quirky family that charmed me in many ways. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve been a fan of Kinsella’s ever since her Shopaholic series so many years ago so of course I jumped at the chance to read her ventures into the YA genre. I think, for the most part, I enjoyed Finding Audrey. Audrey’s family is made up of very quirky characters,… Read more »

Book Review: Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

Book Review: Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

One Line: Such a touching and emotional read. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This was my first book by Kirby and I really liked it. Everyone deals with loss in different ways and there’s no absolute way to do it. For Quinn, she coped with the loss of Trent by needing to know where his organs were now and how they helped those lives he saved. I can definitely… Read more »

Book Review: Even the Score by Kate Meader

Book Review: Even the Score by Kate Meader

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: I just love me those Southern men! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Ah! This is exactly why I love reading this imprint. Even the Score combined the sexy with the substance in all the right places and I just couldn’t get enough of Tess and Hunter. I always get a kick out of the “fake fiance/relationship” trope because you just know they’ll end up falling for each… Read more »

Book Review: If You Dare by Jessica Lemmon

Book Review: If You Dare by Jessica Lemmon

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: Fun and flirty, just how I like it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! If You Dare was a fun and charming book. You get a sweet romance, plenty of steamy scenes, a good amount of drama, and a bit of mystery thrown in for good measure. Lemmon really won me over with her characters though, especially Marcus. He may be a typical playboy, but he genuinely likes… Read more »

Audiobook Review: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Audiobook Review: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

One Line: Even better then the first. I loved Lara Jean and family! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I think I liked this book a lot better than the first. I was definitely invested more. There just seemed to be more going on in this book, more of Lara Jean’s development and growth, and more of the Song family. Just more! Everything about this book was sweet, cute, and… Read more »

Book Review: The Leveller by Julia Durango

Book Review: The Leveller by Julia Durango

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★½

One Line: Not as action-packed as I was hoping for. In My Opinion: Worth a try! I always get intrigued by a “virtual world” setting and I truly believe this might be in our future someday. A lot of the games I like to play focus on world-building, kind of like Sim City. I thought it was pretty cool that Durango had a character like Nixy who made a living… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 47 – If You’re Happy & You Know It, Clap Your Hands

Project BG3: Week 47 – If You’re Happy & You Know It, Clap Your Hands

BG3, Project BG3 0

BG3 has mastered the art of hand-clapping now and it is adorable, of course. There’s this little Vietnamese rhyme that I always sing to her that involves clapping and she loves that song. Now whenever I sing it, she claps along happily. She also knows to clap whenever we say “Yayyyy!” We’re letting her eat a wider variety of food nowadays. Basically anything besides honey, nuts, and milk. She seems… Read more »
