Book Review - "Ladies' Night" by Mary Kay Andrews (#11 - 2019)

Ladies' Night by Mary Kay Andrews

Grace Stanton is a very successful lifestyle blogger, she creates the content and her husband runs the business side.  They live in a beautiful house and have a wonderful life.  Until Grace catches her husband cheating.  She is then locked out of her home, blog and life and ordered by the court to go to "divorce therapy" every week.  In therapy she meets a cast of characters and they decide to meet after therapy sessions at Grace's mother's bar and they swap stories, help each other out and try to find closure in their own way.  This was a fun read, easy, nothing too deep and would be a great vacation book!

Review - Hello Fresh

Though I do make and plan almost all our meals at home (we usually get takeout only once a week), sometimes I get in a rut and just want some new ideas as well as trying new ingredients that I might not use/think about.  That's where a meal delivery box comes in handy.  So I decided to try out Hello Fresh when a coupon crossed my path (see bottom of this post for a coupon code for you to use if interested).  The box arrives the cold stuff is on the bottom with cold packs and the rest of the ingredients are in individual boxes for each recipe along with recipe cards. I just put it all in the refrigerator.

Here's what was in my first box:
Italian Ciabatta Burgers with Sweet-and-Tangy Salad

A peek inside the box once opened.

Everything all spread out

The finished product!  This was soooo good, in fact I've made it again.

The next recipe was Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Lemony Potato and Zucchini Hash.  This one was pretty good, I'm not a huge pork tenderloin fan, but the hash was so good.

From another box a chicken, green bean and rice meal that was delicious!

If you are interested in trying out Hello Fresh for yourself, use this link and my code BZ7S52 to get $40 off your first box!  It's a great deal! #referralcode

This post wasn't sponsored or anything, I just wanted to share my honest experience and impression.

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
