Blog Tour: Book Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway – Make Me by Tessa Bailey [CLOSED]

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

One Line: Russell and Abby FTW! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I have totally shipped this couple ever since their first encounter on the stoop of Roxy, Abby, and Honey’s apartment and Tessa did not disappoint. Their story is akin to that of a princess and the stable boy, or should I say, the Duke and the virgin, given Russell’s choice of reading material. Gah! I just had so… Read more »

Book Review: Recipe for Temptation by Gina Gordon

Book Review: Recipe for Temptation by Gina Gordon

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A bit disappointing, but Cole kept things going for me. In My Opinion: Worth a try. I’ve always enjoyed this series ever since I first read about the first Madewood brother, Jack. Each brother brings something unique to the table and you know I’m a sucker for sexy brothers. Here we’ve got the budding romance of Penn and Cole. I could tell there were sparks flying between the… Read more »

My Favorite Bedtime Stories, Past and Present

My Favorite Bedtime Stories, Past and Present

Books, Parenting 2

As a part of National Book Lover’s Day, I thought it would be fitting to discuss some of my favorite bedtime stories as a child and as books I read with my children. Being an avid reader, I’ve loved books since before I knew how to read. Even growing up in a household where I was a first-generation Asian-American being raised by an immigrant mother who was learning the English… Read more »

Book Review: The Remedy by Suzanne Young

Book Review: The Remedy by Suzanne Young

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

One Line: A slow starter, but when things get going it turns amazing! In My Opinion: Add to cart! It’s been way too long since I a book by Young and I’ve been meaning to for the longest. I’ve been a big fan of her writing since her first book and I don’t know why I never got around to checking out her new series. The synopsis for The Remedy… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 50 – We’re Getting Close

Project BG3 1

Ah! I can’t believe we’re only two weeks away from the BIG ONE! I seriously need to start getting things in order for her party. Anyways, we transitioned her to the Pack n Play this week for naps and bedtime, which is a first for us as we’ve always done co-sleeping. It just seems like she prefers her own space and she doesn’t like to be rocked to sleep anymore,… Read more »

Unbox Me: July Nerdblock Jr. for Girls

The girls were extra excited to get their Nerdblocks this month. They’ve been really loving these boxes and it was a good move on my part to get them their own separate boxes. I like that each box has a bit of variation in them so that they can always swap if they want to. In case you didn’t know, Nerd Block Jr. for Girls is a monthly subscription box… Read more »
