I’m personally obsessed with her chicken taco chili and stuffed shells. Too. Die. Go on and check it out, Xo!

Goodbye July!

As we say goodbye to yet another month of 2013 (anybody else feel like the year is flying by?!?) I figured I’d share a few things with you that will be happening around here to come. There will be plenty more book reviews coming up in the weeks to come, so check back on Mondays to see what I’ve been reading. Starting this Friday, I’ll be having a new weekly/bi-weekly post that I’m super pumped for. As always, 4pm pick me ups will be on Thursdays. And I will finally finish up, my ‘Pretty Little Liars’ fashion round up! And at the end of August, I will be hosting a giveaway! So stay tuned, lots of good things are in store!

A Book In Review.

get-attachment.aspx

Brief Summary: Della Wright has come to peaceful and picturesque Briar Hollow, at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, to realize her lifelong dream of owning a weaving studio. To promote her new business, Dream Weavers, Della is offering weaving workshops for all levels of ability. In her first class, she meets half a dozen of the town’s colorful characters, who seem as eager to gossip as to learn how to work a loom.  But when a shady local businessman is found murdered, Briar Hollow suddenly appears a lot less idyllic. And when one of her weaving students is suspected of the crime, Della can’t help getting entangled in the investigation—with some help from her criminologist friend, Matthew. But can she weave together clues as well as she weaves together yarn—and stop a killer from striking again?

Review: I received this book in return for an honest review. This was a fun mystery and I really liked the main character, Della. I thought she was so likable and always made me laugh. I was a little lost within all of the talk of weaving cause I wasn’t to familiar with it, but now I’d like to give it a whirl. I will most definitely be reading the next book in this series cause I need to know how Della’s love life works out. I give this book 3.5 stars, it’s a great, fun mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end. If you like witty mysteries, this book is for you! Xo

Review: 

I recieved this book in exchange for an honest review. I’ll admit that I don’t really do sci-fi type books, but I loveeeee this book! I couldn’t put it down. I was obsessed. I couldn’t stop talking about it on vacation. It’s a book that takes you to another world. The main character, Reece, is really relatable and funny. The author does a fabulous job of painting a picture of everything along the way. I will definitely be checking out the other books in this series. I recommend this book to anyone who needs to “get away” cause this story does just that. It’s a great book for anyone at any age or gender. This 4 star book is the first of what I know will be an amazing series. Buckle up to tag along on a crazy, but beautiful ride. Xo.
