Closer by Aria Hawthorne review

I absolutely adored this book. I enjoyed how even though on some level it was the same premise as your other Billionaire novels, it was also surprisingly fresh in the way the Billionaire actually needed her, not just needed to possess her  intimately. It was nice to see this romance develop, and it was interesting that this one involved a single mother, instead of a female character who could just jetset at a moment's notice.

UnLove Me book Review

I loved the storyline in this book and how everything was so intertwined. I hated the fact that it jumped around so much and when she would go from talking about the male in that chapter to the female, it would change paragraphs but there was no break to let you know of the change. It made it really hard to follow in some parts and you were left scratching your head for a bit, like huh?! Overall, it is a really good book though, and there were a lot of surprises you didn't see coming. You gotta love a good MC book with lots of sex, happiness, angst, and suspense all rolled into one. I think it could have been told better, but it was decent.

Ripley's Believe It or Not Book Review

I love this book. It is jam packed with all the normal but not normal oddities you would expect from Ripley's, as well as exciting pictures to go on every page. It is hours of fun for the whole family looking through the pages finding  the craziest and most out there things. It also has some really great teachable moments. You can teach your kids about all the amazing animals, or show them what can be done when they set their mind to something. This book really highlights the wonders of our world and showcases the amazing wonders of our world. It will also lead to great conversations sitting on your coffee table.

The Lost Girl by R. L. Stine Review

I haven't read R.L. Stine since I was a kid, but even as an adult, he still has the knack for being an awesome storyteller. This book is about some kids who hit a guy while snow mobiling. Then crazy things start happening. There is a new girl at school. Although, she isn't just a new girl. Stick around until the end and you will learn the real story of Beth Palmieri. Make sure you read closely because there is a lot of back and forth which can make it kind of hard to follow if you are just skimming. Enjoyable read!

In Love With Paris by Sharon Kleve Review

I have been a fan of Ms. Kleve and she doesn't disappoint this time. The only negative I can say about this book was that it was over too soon. I love the way it ended, though I would have liked to have known what Susan's opinion was of the romance she inspired once she met Christopher. I greatly enjoyed how she gave us a hint of her life and how important us reviewers are to her livelihood by letting us get to know Paget's favorite author, Susan. I would like to think if I met my favorite author, they would be that personable as well. I can't wait to see what Ms. Kleve has in store for Aubri. 

Diamond Run (Phil Mahood Book 1) by Michael Croucher Review

This book was very entertaining once it really got started. The first couple chapters it was hard to get into, but I promise it gets better. I loved how the author mixed up the real world with the supernatural world, but not enough that it will turn off the reader of the crime/suspense genre. It moved at a very steady pace. I also enjoyed how it tied up everything so neatly in the end. I do look forward to seeing how Mr. Croucher develops his character of Off. Mahood as time progresses. He is off to a great start with it. I hope Gloria and Charles stick around since I would like to see them more utilized in the future as Phil continues to shed his skepticism. All in all, it's a great read.

My Little Pony Paper & Digital Coloring Pack Review

I got this for my daughter's birthday. The concept is amazing! I love the thought of recolorable pictures. She found it was easier to color using her finger. You have to press down really hard to use the accompanying crayon. That was really her only complaint. I loved how I could get my coloring book and she could get her MLP pages on the tablet, and we could color together, and instead of having to stop every few minutes so she could change pictures when she made a mistake, or got bored, we could color together for nearly an hour, which is amazing in and of itself because A. She is 11, and B. She has ADHD and OCD. With her having OCD, it made it easier for her to correct her mistakes instead of trashing the whole picture. I see this being around for a while to come.

Green Kids Club Review

Freya got a book from the Green Kids Club to review. She is really big into animals so I knew she would enjoy this. There were a lot of fun facts. As much as she reads about animals, she still learned new things. She goes back and reads this on occasion, so I may end up ordering this for her. It is a monthly box like Geek Fuel or Loot Crate. You should really check this out for your grade school kids. It is like Ranger Rick meets Loot Crate.


OK my wonderful friends, it is that time again. Starting in the morning, as of 9AM, I will be gaming for 24 hours straight. This year Freya and the rest of my family will be joining me for a family filled 24 hours. All proceeds that are raised go to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health​. I really hope you can find it in your heart to just give a small $5.00 donation. Every little bit helps! For my gamer friends who will be joining me both in body and in spirit for our marathons tomorrow, GAME ON #FORTHEKIDS  #EXTRALIFE2015
