Happy March + A Book Chat

Oh, hey there! Hello March, springtime, sunshine, and all of the best make-your-heart-happy books as you sunbathe. (Ideally, right?) We hung out for a little while ‘in person’ to chat about THE HATING GAME by Sally Thorne – a book that should be high on your radar for reading as soon as possible. We discussed […]

It’s a Wrap • See Ya Next Year, March!

Well, another month bites the dust. Who’s prepared for April and taxes? (UGH.) Ahem, sorry – that’s what I’ve been focused on a lot the last two weeks. April is going to be full of sunshine and reading outside and lots and lots of vitamin D. (We hope.) Here are a few highlights of our March: […]

Alexa S. - It seems like y’all had a happy March! I loved the #15beautifuldays challenge too, and definitely enjoyed perusing all of the photos that were shared 🙂

It’s a Wrap • Sayanara February

I have NO idea how tomorrow is the beginning of March. HOW HOW HOW? February was full of lots of new adventures, several great books, really cold weather just about everywhere, and way too much time spent looking up YouTube videos. Here’s a little recap of this February with our most popular Instagram posts. (Are […]

Magan - Thanks, Alexa! Me too! I think it’s a nice glimpse at what we were up to and an easier way to see what we loved without having to backtrack through tons of posts! <3

Alexa S. - Loved seeing a brief snapshot of your month! (I’m particularly fond of the Instagram and recommendation portion of this post.) So happy that y’all are doing monthly recaps!

Laura @ canido52 - I’ve been seeing “I’ll meet you there” everywhere & have been a little bit intrigued. It even gets 5 stars on Amazon which is a rarity! Added to my wishlist and hopefully reading it soon! Thanks for the recommendation. My fave YA book for Feb was “Even in Paradise”…. loved it! Shades of Gatsby 🙂

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I can’t believe that it is almost March, either, but I am happy for it. This winter has been brutal.

I love Makeup By Tiffany D! I watch so many makeup tutorials on youtube. I also love Emilynoel83/Beauty Broadcast a lot too.

And I’ll Meet You There is definitely amazing!

Missie - I just bought I’ll Meet You There for my OTSP Secret Sister, I was really tempted to read it before sending it – I have only heard amazing things about it!

It’s a Wrap | Adios January

How is it January 31st already? Are you thinking this too? Wow. One quick month to kick off 2015; that’s all we gotta say. Together we’re reeling from the post-sads after our epic it’s-been-over-a-year reunion in Disney World a few days ago but also looking forward to a big February. Ears? Check! Reunion? Double check.

chloe - I’ve never been to Disney World but I’ve always wanted to go! It sounds like you guys had an awesome time. I’ve been seeing All the Bright Places around a lot lately and it looks super intriguing. Hope you have a great February 🙂

Alexa S. - Happy to see a monthly wrap-up from you ladies! And even happier to know you guys were reunited AND that the reunion happened at WDW 😉

Thankful Hearts

Friends, It’s that time again. That little holiday smushed between the grinning pumpkins and twinkling lights — a little day dedicated to sharing our appreciation, taking time away from our daily stresses, and spending it with people who make us smile. Before you go off to enjoy your holiday, we thought we would share a […]

Alexa S. - I loved seeing you both share about your holiday traditions for Thanksgiving! Each Thanksgiving I’ve celebrated since I returned to the USA has been with different people, but the one thing that each celebration has had in common is the fact that I celebrated it with people I love – and stuffed my face. Happy Thanksgiving to you both!

Book Report: Kiss Kill Vanish by Jessica Martinez

Well, hello! Welcome back for another Book Report! In the past, we’ve done lots of gushing as we’ve oohed and ahhed over books like ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER, but today’s discussion involves a few differing opinions on our overall opinion of KISS KILL VANISH by Jessica Martinez. Did we love it? Did we […]

Cassie @ Happy Book Lovers - I’ve had my eye on this one since I saw the cover because it really stands out to me. And I think it’s kind of fun to read a book with lots of different opinions! It was fun reading your POVs! 🙂

Alexa S. - Kiss Kill Vanish was a pretty fun surprise for me! I didn’t expect to be swept up in this book, but I totally was. Martinez delivers a pretty solid mystery/thriller type tale, and I can’t wait to read more of her stuff!

Jess @ Gone with the Words - A thing with feet that grossed you out and almost made you cry? That sounds terrible! LOL And I’m not sure I want to find out what it is! But aside from that, you guys have me totally on the fence about this one. I have yet to read one of her books. Something about the author having my name really weirds me out and is part of the reason why I haven’t read any of her books yet. Totally dumb, but there you have it. lol
