Marty and I don’t often share the same taste in books but we do both enjoy a good political suspense book. As soon as I received Infamy (A Butch Karp-Marlene Ciampi Thriller), I knew that Marty was going to want to read it when I was done. This is my first book by Robert Tanenbaum but Marty has read several others that he enjoyed. A book was provided for this review. This post […]

One of our favorite books to review are Parragon’s sticker books. I loved stickers ever since I was little. My favorites were the ‘scratch and sniff’ stickers. My mom would find stickers stuck every where around the house. Luckily, she was a good sport about it!  A book was provided for this review.

The jigsaw features a full color picture on one side and the same picture but in reverse on the other side that your child can color on. Zach loved being able to color in his own puzzle. We found out that if you use markers, you can wipe it […]

The Doctor Is In (Love?) by Ashlynn Valana was the perfect choice for a lazy Saturday morning on the couch.  I was compensated for my time in promoting this book. The Doctor Is In (Love?) by […]

You may remember, not too long ago, the story about the manufacturer whose grated cheese actually contained wood cellulose. Did this freak you out as much as it did me? I always try to be careful about the food I buy and hearing that story just reinforced that goal to me. If you feel the same way, keep reading my review for Real Food Fake Food by Larry Olmsted.

When I was little, we spent part of our summer in New Hampshire at my Great Uncle’s home. He lived in the country and had bees in the back yard behind the garden. They were surrounded by an electric fence since the bears loved to topple them over and steal the honey. I remember being fascinated by bees and the process of making honey ever since. A book was provided […]

Who remembers the television series I Dream of Jeannie? I can’t be the only one that loved that show when I was little. Just the thought of having a genie who would make wishes come true was enough to get me hooked on watching it. If you have fond memories of magical wishes, you might want to check out the new children’s cartoon Shimmer and Shine Welcome to Zahramay Falls. A DVD […]

I love a good thriller and I spent a good part of the weekend on the couch reading A Chilling Absence by Shelly Maynard. It was really too hot to do much else, and I’m really glad I let myself just relax and read. Sometimes, we all need to have a little bit of down time! I received a book for my honest review. A Chilling Absence by Shelly Maynard […]
