Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner

My boyfriend has introduced me to the world of cheesey horror movies. You know, the really bad ones? Part of their charm lies within hosted shows. These shows usually break the movie into chunks, with a host dissecting how bad parts are, where it was filmed, what the cast is up to now. They’re a big part of horror culture that I wasn’t really aware of until recently. A big name in hosted shows is Elvira, maybe you’ve heard of her!

Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L Rosen IMAGE

I picked up this book ages ago; before I got back into my YA groove. It’s an adult romance book (not a bodice ripper, but still romance), and it’s about fashion. 

Taking place through numerous points of view (not just the views of nine women), this book revolves around the way those nine women’s lives are affected by one dress. It also starts and ends with the pattern maker of the dress, and has a lovely full circle feeling. 

It’s a beautiful story about love, in more than one way; there are many love and loss stories within its pages. There are cheating husbands, wives, and fresh starts. It really has it all, and that made me love it. 

I had been putting off reading this book for ages, but everyone suggested I bring it with me on my road trip, and I’m so glad they did. It’s a fantastic read; so much fun and love in it. I highly recommend it. 

Ronan Boyle and the Bridge Of Riddles by Thomas Lennon & Illustrated by John Hendrix

I bought this book because there was a giant advertisement with Thomas Lennon and his beautiful dog playing in target while I was in the book section. After taking a glance at it’s inside cover and realizing that it was a middle grade book written specifically for me, I figured I needed to buy it. Only on the way home did I realize that there was a review of it from Weird Al Yankovich on the back, which further solidified my feelings.

Cookies from Stamped Sweets

I was contacted by Stamped Sweets just over a month ago to talk about some cookies. Being a huge fan of putting my face on things, cookies, and gifts, I said yes. Stamped Sweets is a new company that specializes in personalized cookies. They can put photos or text on frosted shortbread cookies, and that is pretty dang special. I do want to state that while I was gifted these cookies, this review includes my full and honest opinion on them.
