Review – Second Position by Katherine Locke

I won an ebook copy of Second Position in the beginning of 2016. I can’t believe it took me so long to get to it. But I’m glad I finally did.

Second Position is part of my 2017 #RockMyTBR challenge.

#RockMyTBR 2017 February Recap

rockmytbr17header

#RockMyTBR (link) is a reading challenge hosted by Sarah K., The YA Book Traveler. Basically, the challenge is to read books that you already own that were published before the beginning of the year. I love this challenge. Even though I didn’t complete it last year, it was still fun to participate in and see what others were reading. Here’s my intro post for this year.

So how did I do in the month of February? Continue reading “#RockMyTBR 2017 February Recap”

Are you ready for this week’s recap of things that made me happy!? I sure hope so…

  1. Popcorn. I could eat popcorn any time, I love it, and I admit to indulging A LOT this week.
  2. Music. I don’t often listen to the radio (not much time spent in the car), and if I listen to my phone it’s usually music I know I like. But sometimes I just don’t want to hear anything. Then, suddenly I want to hear all the things, which results in a great appreciation of being able to listen to a wide variety of songs and let loose a little.
  3. Sprouts! I have sprouts in my winter sowing containers!Marigold sprouts in winter sowing container
  4. Early Valentine presents. My husband and I are as bad as kids when it comes to trying to wait for a holiday to give gifts. This year, I received this awesome bookish necklace and a gift card for my kindle! necklace
  5. Honestly I don’t have a specific thing for #5, but things have just been good lately, and that makes me happy 🙂

What’s made you smile lately? Share below!

This Week’s Five!!!

Alright, this post encompasses more than the past week, but here we go! Five things that made me happy or I found interesting lately:

  1. Seeing the Women’s Marches. Wow, what a bautiful movement whose momentum we can’t allow to be lost.
  2. YAKFest – Young Adult Keller Book Festival — this was my second time attending, and it was a blast! Post coming soon.
  3. Starting something new – As the little one’s induction to the public school system draws closer *sobs*, that means I’m looking at my future, too. Right now the plan is to get my alternative certification to teach secondary Enlish Language Arts. For now though, I’ve begun substitute teaching.
  4. Books on sale – there have been some really interesting looking books on sale lately.
  5. Fire Emblem Heroes on mobile! I’m a huge fan of the series, and it’s fun to have part of it on my phone. I’m super looking forward to the one for the Nintendo Switch, because we really enjoy playing games together and watching each other play games. That’s really hard to do on the DS.

What’s something that’s brought you happiness lately?
