A 2017 Must-Read: Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

Review: Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills This book. THIS BOOK. This book made me want to hug it to my chest, sigh, and start all over again. Emma Mills has done it again with Foolish Hearts.

Foolish Hearts is definitely one of my favorite contemporaries of 2017. The plot features Claudia Wallace, a high school junior who ends up accidentally overhearing the school’s premier couple, Iris and Paige, breaking up. Claudia’s always been well-liked, […]

Your Next Rom-Com Reads: Man Hands and Man Card by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Friends, as many of you know, I am Sarina Bowen-obsessed. So when I heard she and Tanya Eby were writing two rom-coms called Man Hands and Man Card, I leapt at the chance to review them. Sarina is a great at partnering with other authors to write the best new adult romance out there (see: the Him series; Temporary, etc, etc). Her romances are packed with loveable, relatable characters, found families and friendships, and swoony moments. Please note: These are R-rated, and you may snort laugh while reading these. I sure did. And they got me out of my first month […]

Hello, Baby! 4 Favorite Baby Books to Read To Your Newborn | BabyLit

Hello, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I’m so happy to be back to blogging again! It feels great to be reading and reviewing again since my baby has taken over my life. In case you missed it, this is my daughter, Gemma. She was born in mid-November.  She’s now 9 weeks old, 8.5 lbs, and an absolute joy. We had quite a ride with her – a lot of extra hospital visits, tears, breastfeeding issues. I’m happy to say that things have levelled out a bit and we’ve gotten into a bit of a routine.

Here are some photos of our nursery – we’ve worked really hard at getting it ready and crafty and pretty for our little girl: Isn’t it cute?

Hi guys, you may have noticed that things have been a bit slow around here. I wanted to give you an update on what’s been happening.

My grandmother: Without a doubt, the single thing that has defined the last few weeks has been my grandmother’s death. She passed away on September 1, and I’m still mourning and trying to process that last week with her. I’m so grateful that we were able to be […]
