Welcome to the December Edition of Monthly News!
For the month of December I held a third PayPal giveaway. This time I sweetened the pot a little.
I signed up for more challenges, of course. This time it's the 2013 Sequel Challenge, the 2013 A To Z Book Challenge, the 2013 A-Z Reading Challenge, the 2013 YA/MG Fantasy Challenge, the 2013 Women Challenge, the What's In A Name Challenge 6, the 150+ Reading Challenge for 2013, BBC's 100 Books In A Year Challenge, the 2013 Non-Fiction Challenge and the 2013 A Thru Z Challenge
Also I turned 25 for the 11th time on the 10th. I had a great time, yes I did. Celebrated with family and friends.
For those who celebrated Christmas I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I hope Santa was good to you and your house and hearts were filled with love and joy.
And for today, I wish you a prosperous, healthy and very happy new year!

Comments

  1. I hadn't heard of some of the reading challenges. Although, my husband might get rather upset if I signed up for some and stayed up late every night reading. I'll have to check out The Iron Knight and might do a round up reading post on my blog for my personal favorites from 2012.

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
