Book Review - "Balancing In Heels" by Kristin Cavallari (#10 -2019)

Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making It All Work by Kristin Cavallari

Picked this book up on a whim and read it in a few hours.  Nothing Earth shattering or too deep here, just a decent overview of her history along with some beauty and fashion tips.  Some decent exercise routines and recipes too.  I enjoyed it, didn't take a bunch away from it, but it's worth reading.

Book Review - "Born to Be Brad: My Life and Style, So Far" by Brad Goreski (#9 - 2019)

Born to Be Brad: My Life and Style, So Far by Brad Goreski

I've loved Brad ever since the first season of "The Rachel Zoe Project" so I decided to pick this book up when I saw it.  It was a very enjoyable read, I loved finding out how he got to where he is now.  He's frank and honest about his childhood and his issues with addiction.  I really liked him more after reading this and he just seems like a nice person.  I would totally recommend this book!

Book Review - "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak (#8 - 2019)

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I didn't know quite what to expect when I read this book.  I didn't read it 10+ years ago when it came out and I have not seen the movie.  The book is told through the eyes of Death.  Okay that sounds very morbid and depressing but it's not, I swear.  But it took me a few pages to figure it out.  The story focuses on a foster girl named Liesel who lives with her foster parents outside of Munich, Germany right as WWII is underway.  Liesel is the "book thief", her foster father teaches her to read and she becomes obsessed with books.  It's a very good book, however it can get a little hard to follow sometimes. I would recommend it.


Book Review - "Of Blood and Bone: Chronicles of The One, Book 2" by Nora Roberts (#7 - 2019)

Of Blood and Bone by Nora Roberts


The second book in The One series. This follows Fallon Swift through her teen years and her training in the magical arts so she can face the dark forces still terrorizing the world. This one was okay, I’m still not all in on this witches/elves/fairy stuff (I’m kind of tired of it).  

See the review of Book 1 here

Book Review - "Year One: Chronicles of The One, Book 1" by Nora Roberts (#6 - 2019)


It all starts on New Year's Eve.  A sickness spreads like wildfire and chaos ensues.  Within weeks over half the world's population is wiped out, governments collapse, infrastructure is gone.  Unimaginable evil has been unleashed.  This book follows several groups trying to make their way to a safe place.  They don't know who they can trust and some have sprouted new "abilities".  The typical dark vs. light/good vs. evil storyline.  It's interesting, not riveting, not fantastic, but a solid story that I read in 2 days.  I'm a little over the witches/elves/fairies stuff though, it's getting tired overall.  But I'm still going to finish this series, Book 2 is up next for me.

Book Review - "A Simplified Life" by Emily Ley (#5 - 2019)

A Simplified Life by Emily Ley 

First, this is a gorgeous book.  It's simple, very simple, which is not a bad thing at all.  In fact it's simplicity is the appeal for me.  This is not an "in depth" guide, it's a basic guide that is easy to understand and covers everything from decluttering to finances to taking care of yourself.  This is a great "starter" book if you are looking to begin simplifying your life.  Would make a wonderful gift, especially for a graduate (high school or college)!

Book Review - "Reshaping It All" by Candace Cameron Bure (#4 - 2019)

Reshaping It All by Candace Cameron Bure


Part memoir, part motivational and spiritual guide.  She shares her struggles with her weight throughout the years and how she overcame them and now leads a very strong/healthy/faithful life now.  I found this book helpful and interesting.  I liked it and would recommend it.
