Make Me Read It Readathon

The Make Me Read It Readathon is hosted by Ely and Val. The readathon takes place from August 6th to August 13th. How does Make Me Read It Readathon Work? Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you […]

Review | Just For Now by Abbi Glines

Just For Now is the fourth book in the Sea Breeze series. This one is about Amanda and Preston. Both characters have been introduced in previous Sea Breeze stories but this time they take center stage. Just For Now is much more mature then the previous Sea Breeze novels. I also feel like this one really pushed into the new adult genre. It was more explicit, it dealt with more mature topics and it was one that made me have very mixed feelings. Part of me loved this story; the […]

As Planned By Tina | Inside My New Bullet Journal

As Planned By Tina is my little space on the blog where I share with you one of my favorite things bullet journaling. This month, I finally moved into my new bullet journal. I also bought a Create 365 Happy Planner (its not going so well with this one) because the kids will begin school soon and I feel like a regular paper planner may help keep up with everything. I’ll post about this later on. Introducing my new Bullet journal! I ordered a pink leuchtturm1917 notebook but the first […]

Review | While It Lasts by Abbi Glines

While It Lasts is the third book in Sea Breeze and I want to say it is one of my favorites of the series. I can definitely understand why everyone is in love with Cage York. Cage York is a character we met in Because Of Low. He could be a little hard to like because he was your typical man whore but I also saw a side of him that I was curious about. And Abbi didn’t disappoint me when it came to Cage’s growth. He definitely had a […]

Review | Because Of Low By Abbi Glines

Because of Low is the second novel in Sea Breeze Series. This can be read as a standalone but if you’d like to fully understand the story, then I would recommend beginning with Breathe. Marcus was introduced in Breathe and I was Team Marcus so I was pretty excited to know that Because Of Low was his book. I had high expectations of Marcus that sadly weren’t meant. In Breathe, Marcus was sweet and kind and I felt like Because of Low showed a side of him, I didn’t really […]

As Told By Littles | Jilly’s Terrible Temper Tantrums by Martha Heineman Pieper

Jilly’s Terrible Temper Tantrums was a book I found on Netgalley and really wanted to read to the Littles. We’ve been struggling a lot with Little 1 some of it has had to do with typical five-year-old behavior but he also has anxiety so we’ve been doing counseling working on how to control these types of behaviors. The story has different incidents where Jilly doesn’t get her way. Tantrums are a daily occurrence in my household so this book opened up the discussion between the Littles and I about. We […]
