“50 Things to Know About Breastfeeding: Quick Tips for New Moms” Review

Since I’m a mom-to-be and plan to breastfeed,. I jumped on the opportunity to read 50 Things to Know About Breastfeeding: Quick Tips for New Moms for free in exchange for my review.

“50 Things to Know About Surviving the First Year of Parenthood: Simple Advice for New Parents” Review

Since I’m a mom-to-be, I’ve been interested in reading some parenting books. I jumped on the opportunity to read 50 Things to Know About Surviving the First Year of Parenthood: Simple Advice for New Parents for free in exchange for my review. I was provided a PDF of the book. Honestly, I can’t say this was a very helpful book overall. The 50 things list read more like a blog post of observations (for example, not being able to sleep through the night anymore) than real tips. Plus, there were errors everywhere. Since the book is already out there and available for purchase, […]

I often feel general rules of etiquette are not followed in normal daily interactions with people, and that is why people tend to get so upset with one another. All of us can benefit from a refresher in some of these generally accepted rules and tips for interacting with other people. Title: 50 Things to Know About Modern Manners: Etiquette is a Way Of […]

Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures

A couple of weeks ago one of my book clubs discussed the Beautiful Creatures book and then we went to see the movie together. Most of us enjoyed the book, some LOVED it, but the movie had some mixed feelings. Those that loved the book the most ended up hating the movie. Others of us thought it was so-so. I think I was the only member who both really liked the book and really liked the movie. So here’s my minority opinion lol. The Daily Beast did an article called ‘Beautiful Creatures’: 14 Notable Differences From the Book to the […]
