April Monthly News

Welcome to the April edition of the monthly news!
It was kind of a boring month. 
My husband's birthday came and went. We went to The Keg. It's our favorite place to go, though this particular experience was sub-par.
Easter came and went, and I went to my brother's. My sister-in-law is a champ. She fed 28 people!! And to think, we weren't even all there. 3 of my sisters and their families were absent.  Yup, I sure do feel blessed when I look at how big my family is. Having so many siblings is awesome sometimes.
I'm averaging a book a week it seems. The older I get, the slower my pace. I wish I could read more but I just don't have the ambition at the moment. With work, and life in general, I guess I am happy I still read. Do you see a change in your reading habits?


BOOKS:
  1. My Mother Was Nuts by Penny Marshall (recommend)
  2. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout (recommend)
  3. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

  1. One book a week is not bad. For me it depends entirely of what I have to do. I was recently travelling and that puts down the number of books I read. When I am home and about, I can read a book a day sometimes. So far this year I have read 38 books. Breaking it up it is: Jan - 9, Feb - 12, March - 12 and April 5! All reflecting what else there is in my life, which I think is a good way. Just shows that you never have to be bored if you have nothing specific to do. Just grab a book!

  2. I love Penny Marshall. I've been wanting to read this one for a while now. I tried Obsidian a few years ago but I hated the alpha male's abusive personality. So I set it aside and haven't picked it up again.

    I think a book a week is amazing. That's kind of my usual yearly goal is 4-5 books a month. I just enjoy other things too so sometimes I don't get in as much reading as I would like. So many books so little time.

    1. Penny's book was worth it. I hope you will try Obsidian again. I get why you put it down, but it gets better. :-)

  4. I haven't seen that cover of Obsidian before. Love it! If you like that first book in the Lux series, you'll be happy to know that the series just gets better and better with each book!

  5. WOW your family is big! I don't know what I would do with so many close family members in one place! :) I bet it's nice.

  6. 28 people? That's really impressive. I had a rather quiet Easter myself. There are definitely different times of the year where I want to read and times where I really have to push myself to pick up a book. I hope you enjoy your May!

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

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.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man
he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on

all is on its way-the one that can separate Garrett and Kate forever.
