Sunday Book Club: Caraval

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and fabulous New Year; although I am well aware that many of you did not.  It can be such a hard time for so many.  I personally do not like New Year’s.  The idea of the blank calendar year before me causes me such stress and anxiety.  While… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Caraval

Sunday Book Club: The Girl With All the Gifts

I promise at some point I will get back to the skin care–I am just about ready to start my winter skincare protocol.  Usually this entails lasering sun spots, a chemical peel or two, and some filler or botox, but this year I’m so excited to try something new.  I’m going to try the vampire… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: The Girl With All the Gifts

Sunday Book Club: Murder on the Orient Express

Hiatus over!  I went on vacation over Thanksgiving break to Hawaii, and got sick on the way home.  I was so sick that I was in bed for 4 days. It was just a bad cold, but I had zero energy.  In fact, I had to stop decorating my Christmas tree just to rest.  Christmas… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Murder on the Orient Express

Sunday Book Club: This Is How It Always Is

 I recently had someone ask me what genre of books I enjoyed the most. In reality, I enjoy almost everything.  As a rule I don’t really like young adult, or science fiction, or romance.  But there are probably several books in those genres that I have I read and enjoyed.  Variety is the spice of… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: This Is How It Always Is

 So this book is perfect for this week.  I’ve been trying to think about what I want to say tonight, besides reviewing the book, and here’s what I came up with: stomach flu.  We’ve had the stomach flu in our house this week.  It’s always super fun, hearing that “Moooooommmmm? I just threw up.”  This… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Today Will Be Different

Sunday Book Club: My Absolute Darling

Before book club, I want to spend a little time talking about mental illness.  I drive ALOT. Almost constantly in the evenings.  I was sick of listening to the radio, and then I discovered podcasts.  I did the popular ones, including and particularly Serial, and then I found The Hilarious World of Depression.  This podcast has completely… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: My Absolute Darling

Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us

Before I get into this week’s book, I’d like to review how I did last week with my goals. Eating Habits: Uh, well, I did okay.  I didn’t drink carbonated beverages (yay!), or sugar (for the most part, I did cheat yesterday, but that was the only time), but I couldn’t stay away from white… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us
