Hello! 

Remember me? The person who has neglected this blog? Well, I’m back. 

Apologies for my unintentional absent. Life got in the way. One of my new resolutions is to be a better blogger. No time like now for a little update.  

Back in July, I started a new job. With this new job, came a new routine. 

Near the end of July, the hubs and I found out we were pregnant. As I’ve mentioned before I’ve suffered two miscarriages so this news was difficult to process. The timing could not be worse, with just starting a new job. 

Within the first couple of weeks of August, I went to my first doctor appointment and the pregnancy was confirmed! Since I’ve never made it to this pot, I was feeling better. I left the doctors with a skip in my step and my ultrasound appointment scheduled for a couple of weeks later. 

Flash forward a couple of weeks and the ultrasound appointment. After the ultrasound was done, I headed up to the doctor to get the results. That is were my worst fears happened… Again. I suffered another miscarriage. 

Long story short. I’ve been spending the last few months dealing with the side effects, physically and emotionally, of this last miscarriage. I’ve been in more doctor’s offices, trying to get answers then I want to admit. 

I’m at a better place where I can write about my story and blog again. 

Cheers to 2016!

Hello Loves!
This week has been crazy busy and I haven’t had time to read. Hopefully it slows down this weekend. This week’s book is one that I have been meaning to review.

YOLO by Lauren Myracle

yolo (Internet Girls #4)

Goodreads Blurb
Through texts and messages, the mega-bestselling, beloved Internet Girls series followed the ups and downs of school for three very different, very close friends. Now it’s freshman year of college for the winsome threesome, and *everything* is different. For one, the best friends are facing their first semester apart. Way, way apart. Maddie’s in California, Zoe’s in Ohio, and Angela’s back in Georgia. And it’s not just the girls who are separated. Zoe’s worried that Doug wants to break up now that they’re at different schools, and Maddie’s boyfriend, Ian, is on the other side of the country. In the face of change and diverging paths, Maddie’s got a plan to keep the friends close, and it involves embracing the present, making memories, and . . . roller derby! Using of-the-moment technology, Lauren Myracle brings her groundbreaking series into the brave new virtual world of texting and tweets

My thoughts:
I’ve read the other three books in this series and liked them. However, I’m a little bit glad that the series is over. They started getting predictable and boring. In this book, the winsome threesome are off to college. Their experiences were nothing like mine. I had a long distance boyfriend (like Zoe) and I still managed to have fun. I was a part of a team (kindof like Angela) and I never ended up in the ER. I was away from everyone I knew (like Maddie) but I managed. Somehow their experiences weren’t believable to me.
It was still a very easy read. I was able to get it done in a weekend. I’m still liking the non-traditional form of writing. Hopefully, I can find more books like that.
3/5 Stars.

Hello Loves!

Like my “picture” at the top? I created it! It’s not anything big but it’s still super cool. I didn’t know I could do something like that. Points for my job! Any who, moving on.

Top Ten is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish every Tuesday. This is one of the best memes because it combines two of my favorite things, making lists and talking about books!

This week’s Top Ten is

Top Ten Books For Readers Who Like Character Driven Novels

When I first saw the topic for this week, I was a little confused. I wasn’t too sure what was meant by character driven novels. After trusting my good friend, google to show me the way, I came up with my Top Ten list. All these books are driven by the actions of the character opposed to the actions driven by the plot!

  1. Eleanor & Park

  2. The Fault in Our Stars

  3. The Time Traveler’s Wife

  4. Fangirl

  5. Water for Elephants

  6. The Hunger Games

  7. The Perks of being a wallflower

  8. My Sister’s keeper

  9. Thirteen Reasons Why

  10. City of Bones

Are there any others that I missed?

Happy Friday Loves!

Can you believe it’s finally here? Seems like it took forever!

Here is the book I’m sharing. I actually finished it the other day.


This week’s book:

L8R, G8R by Lauren Myracle

l8r, g8r (Internet Girls, #3)

Goodreads blurb

Angela, Zoe and Maddie are finally seniors and ready for the great year they deserve. After two years of fighting, experimentation and some hilarious stories, they are prepared to enjoy the fruits of seniority – even though being top dogs at school means thinking about college, sex and even the impending end of their inseparable trio.


My thoughts:

Like her two other books (reviews here and here) this one was written in Text Messages and IMs. It’s like getting a look into someone’s diary. Unlike her other books, this was one of my favorites. This books follows the Winsome Threesome through their senior year. They are having to deal with all the pressure of senior (ie college) while still hanging out with each other and getting back at their high school bully. It’s so great to follow along their journey.

4/5 Stars
