What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler My Copy: ARC eBook, 239 pages Publication Date: September 22, 2015 Publisher: HarperTeen Source: Publisher via Edelweiss Kate Weston can piece together most of the bash at John Doone’s house: shots with Stacey Stallard, Ben Cody taking her keys and getting her home early—the feeling that maybe he’s becoming more than just the guy she’s known since they were kids. But when a picture of Stacey passed out over Deacon Mills’s shoulder appears online the next morning, Kate suspects she doesn’t have all the details. When Stacey levels charges against four of Kate’s classmates, the whole town […]

  I’ve decided to join this discussion challenge again this year hosted by Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight.  It’s a great way to see other discussion posts that you may not have otherwise come across and to share your discussion posts with others.  I’m excited to share mine and read others!  If you would also like to participate, you can visit the challenge sign up page. My goal is 1-12 (Discussion Dabbler), because I honestly have no clue how much blogging I will do once baby arrives!

This week, we are choosing an all-time favourite book.  My pick is, of course, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  This book will forever hold a special place in my heart, since it’s the reason I am the […]

I thought I would take today to share my “bumpies” with you all.  (I stole the term “bumpies” from Baby Center).  The term “bumpies” refers to selfies of your baby bump.  Here are my bumpies to date (please ignore any imperfections in the pictures – such as mirror smudges and mess in the background – as I wasn’t planning on sharing these photos at the time):   Stay tuned for more!  🙂


Should a blog focus on only one topic or many?

Should a blog focus on only one topic or many?
19 April, 2016 / 6 Comments

Since changing up my blog and adding topics to it so that now it is more of a general blog – or at least doesn’t only focus on books now – I’ve wondered about this.  Is this a good idea?  Or is it better to just focus on one topic?  See, the thing with me is that I have many interests and I find myself wanting to share and talk about them.  However, not every reader or follower of my blog is going to be interested in all of my topics: books, food/exercise, nails (and now pregnancy/parenting). Since starting this […]

How I Found out I was Pregnant

How I Found out I was Pregnant
13 April, 2016 / 2 Comments

I thought I would share with you my story of finding out I was pregnant.  Hubby and I have been together for over 11 years and married almost 4 years.  We both acquired school debt while in university and decided it would be best to pay off our debt before having kids.  We had a very aggressive plan and it was only going to take about 3 years to get it all paid off!  We were pumped.  Then a surprise happened… So, I had been having mild period-like cramps all week, which is highly unusual for me.  I usually have […]
