Book Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Book Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

Since I’m a sucker for reading most books from the New York Times Bestsellers list, I decided to give this book a try. Although it definitely had its high points, and the love story was sweet and sincere, I didn’t really care for the book so much. I often got distracted and felt like it was dragging on, the only thing keeping me interested was the moments that Grace and… Read more »

One of the Hardest Parts of Being a Mom

One of the Hardest Parts of Being a Mom

BG1, Parenting 9

We’ve all been there before, yelling at our kids or disciplining them because it’s the right thing to do, only to have your heart hurting on the inside because you love them so much you don’t want to yell at them or make them sad or mad. Even the toughest of moms will agree that looking at your child with that sad face or when they’re crying is definitely something… Read more »

The Bump Tales – Week 27

The Bump Tales 3

Welcome once again to another entry in my pregnancy diary, The Bump Tales. This is my last week as a 6 monther, yay, and I couldn’t be happier. Right now my belly is quite big and I’m ready to tell people I’m in my last trimester because everyone thinks I’m about to pop already!

Book Review: Wake by Lisa McMann

Book Review: Wake by Lisa McMann

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

“Wake” is the first book in the Dream Catcher Series by Lisa McMann. Reading the synopsis in the back of the book got me really interested in this story. Entering someone’s dream, I’m sure, has always been a secret wish of many people out there. I suppose I should have looked at the pages before I thought about reading the book. The style of the book is written based on… Read more »

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this blog. Sure I was a bad blogger at first, only posting whenever I wasn’t too lazy, but that was basically because I didn’t have anything to write about! Now that I’ve been home for over 4 months I’ve recently restarted blogging here again and it’s great. I really fell in love with it again and I’ll definitely do… Read more »

So Bummed…

So Bummed…

On My Mind 4

I’m so bummed out right now. As you all know, I didn’t pass my COMP exam in November, which totally sucks, but I still have another shot to take it. I was thinking I would be able to take the exam again in January since that’s when all the other re-takers are doing it, but for some reason that the school won’t tell me, they won’t allow me to take… Read more »

Book Review: Names My Sisters Call Me by Megan Crane

Book Review: Names My Sisters Call Me by Megan Crane

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

Overall, I was very pleased with this book. It wasn’t a page-turner or an all-nighter, I’ll admit, but it was a good book. Throughout the whole book you get to see how Courtney evolves and realizes important aspects about herself and her life, also, how she comes to grips with the past and learns how to face the future. The relationship between her and her sisters can definitely be related… Read more »
