January 2015 Wrap Up!

January has come to an end! It’s been a crazy busy month for me – as evidenced by my absence from the blog the last two weeks (or really just a week and half – I’ve been catching up on blog reading the last couple of days! ๐Ÿ™‚ ). I’m not going to “apologize” to my readers – hah, let’s face it, not many of you out there (yet!) – […]

Flashback Friday: Maze Runner (Maze Runner #1) by James Dashner

My Thoughts The first time around, I loved this whole series and read the main 3 books in this series pretty much back to back. This time around, the book was still really good, but I think since I knew the basic plot already… it wasnโ€™t quite as exciting as I remembered it to be.

Well, that’s great news because I definitely read more than just six minutes a day. ๐Ÿ˜› Of course reading relieves stress! Reading is fun and relaxing because it allows us to forget about what’s going on […]

Crossed (Matched #2) by Ally Condie

** This is the second book in the Matched series. There may be spoilers in this review for Matched, the first book in the series. ** Although this book wasn’t quite as good as the first book in the series, Matched, this book was still plenty good. There is action, adventure, and love! I couldn’t ask for more. ๐Ÿ™‚ Cassia continues to intrigue me, as do the two boys, and […]

Check Out My Blog Button!

Last week Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat pointed out to me that I didn’t have a blog button yet. ๐Ÿ˜› She was so right! I hadn’t gotten around to looking into blog buttons! I had seen buttons around, but I wasn’t completely sure what they were for and I definitely had no idea how to make one. I spent some time this weekend researching blog buttons and… I made one! Check […]

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and a good time bringing the new year (yay for 2015!). I certainly did! My fiancรฉ and I had family visiting us this Christmas and we had a blast! By New Year’s eve, it was just me, “J” and our puppy loves again. We spent the evening together relaxing and watching TV (our new favorite show is Netflix’s Marco Polo – rated […]
