My Take on WattPad – Review o..

I am a big CoHo fan. Most of the books she writes, I absolutely adore. TOO LATE is a bit hard to review on the scale of her previous books because it is so different in so many ways. The most obviously different thing is it is a free story, unedited, and published on Wattpad. I actually did enjoy this reading experience. I cannot say for sure what others felt since I got to the story after it was completed and was able to read it all at once. Normally, you would need to wait on the author to upload chapters at their own pace. Think of it like an unpredictable TV series airing weekly. I did like that readers […]

He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker @..

He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker @kathleenatucker

Once upon a time, I mostly read books from the mystery/thriller genre. These days, I pretty much read all over the place. But for a while, because of the blog tours and stuff I was doing for my personal blog, I mostly read romance. It was fine. I read some really good books. But I just kind of got stuck in a rut and kind of burned out. However, going without reading a really good, suspenseful book was good because it just made me appreciate reading this one so much more. Maggie Sparkes goes to her friend Celine’s apartment in New York to pack up her belongings after she commits suicide. From two opposite worlds, Maggie and Celine became friends as […]

Talking Television Thursday

Well I don’t actually HAVE a talking television………I’m just going to talk television with you 😉 So, I am behind on posting this week, because I decided to upgrade my computer to Windows 10. Has anyone done that yet? Anyone? Bueller? Anyway………..if you haven’t, DON’T. I lost all of my passwords even though I had Last Pass. They were all still secure in Last Pass, I just couldn’t login to anything. And trying to navigate websites after it updated was like Thomas trying to get out of the maze (my son has been watching The Maze Runner and Scorch Trials nonstop lately). I finally called my friend who is head of the IT department at our local junior college and […]

Limelight Series by Elisabeth Grace

Limelight Series by Elisabeth Grace

I really enjoyed this first book in the Limelight series! Elisabeth Grace brings new and exciting characters to the world of New Adult romance. I’ll admit I’m a sucker for celebrity type books, and Mason is smokin! The background story for both of them is interesting and really brings Mason and Ellie together. I love how Grace tied in secondary characters so well while not taking away from the main couple. It was just enough to get me excited about their stories and not too much to distract me from the romance of Ellie and Mason. I hope the rest of the series is as good as this one!   I think the second book was even better! While I […]

Since You’ve Been Gone

Actually, the title of this post SHOULD be “Since we’ve been gone.” Because we have been. Gone. However, besides my children the two main things I care about and love are books and music, so I thought I be cute and use a catchy song title as the title for this post. If you’re singing Kelly Clarkson in your head now, you’re welcome So, back on topic, if you follow our blog (well originally it was Lenore’s blog, and I’ve just kind of jumped in here) you have probably noticed that we both have kind of fallen off the face of the blogging earth for a little while. I am hoping to correct that over the course of the next […]

Friday Five 12/4/15

I’m back with my Friday Five! I really like this concept, mainly because I’m such a quote person. I highlight and sticky note books. If I hear a song lyric or quote on a show that just grabs me, I jot it down. The end result of that is me having tons of little sticky notes in a drawer with random quotes on them. At this point in the year, the current shows I watch are on Winter Break. So I am catching up on episodes I hadn’t watched and also watching older episodes of shows. With sick kids, I haven’t done much reading the past couple of weeks, but have done a lot of watching. This week’s post will only […]

Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica

I took a little break from blogging (unannounced, sorry) for Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving up until everyone got sick So for the past week, I have had 1, 2 or all 3 children at home sick with me. This mama has been going stir crazy. Anyway,  I promised you guys a review soon, and we have not posted a review in A WHILE. I recently finished reading Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica. Her debut novel The Good Girl was fantastic so I was itching to read this one. While Pretty Baby and The Good Girl are similar in a lot of ways, they are still uniquely different. One thing is for certain: Mary Kubica knows how to write […]

New Feature: Friday Five

Hey guys! We’ve been a little slow lately, again. It’s approaching holiday season, so everyone is pretty busy I imagine! I was searching for ideas for new content to write about (and I promise I will have you guys a book review NEXT WEEK) and I came across this topic called Friday Five. It’s pretty basic, you can pick really whatever you want so I decided to go with quotes. So going forward on Fridays, I will be sharing five quotes that stuck out to me this week. Now it may be from something I read, I wrote myself (as I currently participating in NaNoWriMo) or something from a TV show I watched (I currently work from home so I […]
