Physical Books or E-books?

This article came out back in September and really stuck with me after I read it. The article starts by saying that reading just six minutes a day can reduce your stress by 68%. Well, that’s great news because I definitely read more than just six minutes a day. 😛 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. 🙂 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. 😛 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 fiancé 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 […]

Matched (Matched #1) by Ally Condie

I have been meaning to read this book for over a year now, and I wish I hadn’t waited so long! I loved every minute of this book. It was definitely a page turner and I had a hard time putting it down. Seriously though – I read this book in about 24 hours! What I Loved First of all, the writing was fantastic! After the last book I read, […]

Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season! I have family arriving into town tomorrow morning (Christmas morning) to stay with us for a few days. I can’t wait! Spending time with family and friends is my favorite part of the holiday season. My fiancé and I moved from Texas out to southern California about a year and a half ago, so we don’t get to see our family as […]

How I Chose My Blogging Platform

I am what’s called an information seeker. I love doing research and learning about new things. If I’m ever wondering about something, the first thing I do is consult the internet. Chances are, someone else has wondered the same thing before (lets face it, I’m not that original) and I can find an answer somewhere on the internet. I love researching (it’s pretty much what I do all day at […]

I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) by Pittacus Lore

I had such high hopes for this book! The summary grabbed me with the interesting storyline. A group of aliens here on Earth, the last generation of their species, hunted by the evil species that destroyed their planet. I was digging it – it sounded like a book right up my alley. Plus, they made a movie out of this book – that means it should be good right? Oh […]
