There's a FB group for our challenges this year if you'd like to join for support, suggestions and event updates! Just go HERE.

This is a challenge for every blogger who reviews books. We all have a stack or more that we haven't got to yet. I plan on tackling that TBR like nobody's business in 2016, so this challenge is made for me.


GOAL: 12 Past-Due Review Books

  1. Just Don't Call Me Ma'am - Anna Mitchael (2010 TBR)
  2. Slip Of The Knife - Denise Mina (2010 TBR)
  3. Corked - Kathryn Borel JR (2010 TBR)
  4. Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts- Cici McNair (2010 TBR)
  5. The Happiness Project - Gretchin Rubin (2010 TBR)


QUARTER UPDATE
As you see, I've got 3 of the 12 books done. Yeah, I thought I'd be at a better pace, but there's a reason they sat on my shelf this long... seems they are usually a 2 out of 5 rating. So not great... But I don't give up that easy and hopefully there's a gem in there somewhere.


HALF WAY UPDATE

I moved up one lousy book. Basically, if I don't pick up the pace then I will fail the challenge. I hate to fail, so I best get on it. The one thing I do notice, is all the book are from 2010. I also notice they weren't that great... Was 2010 the year of bad books??


**No compensation was received for posting. This post is part of an annual challenge.

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.


4.5/5

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
