Life Happenings

Summer is in full swing and the kids and I are having a lot of fun! My daughter has her final Dance competition coming up next week and we are all so excited! This one is a Nationals competition and first place wins a 5 foot trophy! So of course she wants to win it! My son just did his board breaking ceremony and moved up to his next Karate belt! He was all smiles and excitement! With all of these thing going on it’s been so hard to keep up with everything! Reading and blogging have definitely taken a back seat to life! I still manage to sneak some time in here and there! Here is a pic of our first beach day this Summer!

Book Haul

For Review


I have gotten some really fun books the past two weeks! I have already read This is Dangerous by Kennedy Fox and I am currently reading Atheists Who Kneel and Pray! I just received First We Were IV in the mail and I am so excited to read it soon!


Local Library Book Sale!



A local library very close by just had their HUGE Summer sale so my daughter and I went! Although the selection was not as good as it was in past years (in my opinion) I still got several books!! Everything in the pictures above was only $19!! How amazing is that! All of the books were just $1 or $2! My little ones scored some excellent books too!

More New books!


I received Roar from a really good Instagram friend of mine named Kori @paperandcocoa , give her a follow she is a total sweetie! The first three books I received from the Book of the Month club! They offer an awesome monthly subscription where you can choose your books each month for only $9.99. I have included the link for their website to check out. The last photo features and Awesome subscription box called Spearcraft Book Box (click the photo to check out their website) This was their June Mansion and Manors box! July’s theme is Victorian Classics and you can use code ‘BECCA10’ to save 10% on their website!!

  • Good luck to your daughter! I loooove the cover for We Were Five *all da heart eyes* and library book sales are always amazing. I got The Library of Fates pretty recently and I read and loved it!

  • Sounds like you’re having a great summer! I can’t wait to see what you think of First We Were IV ^_^

    What a great library sale, we don’t really have those here. I love Under the Never Sky, it’s one of my favorite trilogies!

    Thanks for sharing,
