The Buzz About Books 1 & 2

Book 1: "I am 7 years old, and I loved this book because of EJ's imagination and how it focused on the real meaning of Christmas. The book made me laugh, and I especially liked the part when EJ used the shopping cart to pretend to be a race car driver. She thought her mom's scarf was a yellow flag, and she stopped just before she crashed into the display of glue bottles. I liked EJ's character, and I read the book in about 5 days. When we had "Dress Like Your Favorite Book Character Day" at school, I dressed up like EJ Payne. I can't wait for the second book in this series!" ~ Emily E., Amazon
Book 1: "My 9-year-old foster daughter loved the book! She related well to EJ and her spunky personality and humorous outlook on life and what it hands you. Great lessons for her to learn, as well as entertaining. She read it in a matter of days and even chose reading it over playing Nintendo, which is a huge endorsement! I also enjoyed it and found it a fun and comforting read for this 40-something adult. Great job. We're really looking forward to Book 2 of EJ's adventures at camp! Thanks, Annie!" ~ Lfierbaugh, Amazon
Book 2: "Church Camp Chaos is a delightfully funny look into the highly imaginative workings of a tween girl, EJ Payne. The book cleverly uses a combination of diary entries, narration, and hilarious passages peeking into EJ's daydreams. The story is originally clever and, at times, very poignant. I thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic book and I highly recommend this series to young girls in particular between the ages of 8 and 12 who also love Clementine, Judy Moody, and Ramona Quimby." ~ Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews
Book 2: "Curly, my 8-year-old bookworm, loved this book. The day it arrived in the mail I let her look through it. By that evening she brought the book to me to thank me and tell me she was finished. She read the entire book in one day and I don't think she ever put it down! She enjoyed EJ's adventures and the fun times she had at church camp. She told me the book was "funny." I appreciated the way the book treated family relationships and showed a loving family who works together and endures different situations together. EJ and her brother don't always get along but their parents encourage them to be kind and EJ grows to appreciate her brother and even his slightly obnoxious attempts at humor. I enjoyed the life lessons that EJ learned about trust, faith, and friendship and am glad that I can find books for my daughter to read that are humorous and fun while still promoting good values." ~ 5 Star Review, Lextin Academy, Amazon

Book Trailer - Twelve by T.M. Franklin

About Twelve

Ava Michaels is gifted, powerful, and — whether she likes it or not — part of a plot to take over the world. It’s only been a few months since Ava Michaels discovered she has ties to an ancient people living in the shadows of the human world, despite their superior gifts and abilities. A select few don’t like hiding, however, and think it’s time to take control. Now Ava’s caught up in a conspiracy in the works before she was even born. 

In fact, her birth was an integral part of the plan. She’s one of the Twelve, the most powerful Race ever created, and they were created for a purpose. Turns out, Ava doesn’t like being told what to do. All she wants is to start a new life with her boyfriend, Caleb Foster, but before they can even think about that, they must join forces with former enemies, seek out some powerful new friends, and figure out what exactly the Twelve, and their power-hungry leader, are up to. Then, they have to find a way to stop them.

Book Review - Any way you Slice it by Monique McDonell

Now you know I have a bit of an author crush on Monique McDonell, a fellow Australian and fantastic writer. So when I saw she was releasing a new novella I was excited and originally was going to purchase this book to read on the plane to Problogger, but I was lucky enough to get an Advance copy direct from Monique. (It may have also made me a little happy when my profile picture reminded her of the cover of Any way you Slice it)

Any way you slice it by Monique McDonell is everything you need in a romance novel with a twist. 

Piper is in a slight predicament - get deported back to Australia or marry her 'Danny' (a reference to Cherie's cousin, Aaron) to stay in the US. Only thing is she has never met Aaron but he is willingly open to getting to know Piper and possibly marry her in a sexless marriage.

Piper and Aaron are two workaholics and have been unlucky in love. Piper has started her own food truck business selling the great Australian Classic Aussie Meat Pies and currently trying to further her successful business and Aaron is a successful lawyer on his way to becoming a partner. Two gorgeous and successful people...what could possibly go wrong? 

Join Piper and Aaron on a whirlwind romance and possible trip down the aisle, will they last to both get their end of the deal or will someone come between their relationship which result in Piper having to loose her new life and go back to Australia 

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, you know you are reading a great book when you have not moved whilst reading the book and once you are finish you realise it is now dark 

My favourite male lead from all of Monique's novels was Jack from Hearts Afire (you can read my review of Hearts Afire here) but now I love Aaron and his journey with Piper through the ups and downs of relationship, whether that be a real relationship or a fake relationship. 

I am hoping that there will be a sequel to Any way you Slice it

3 Hours 1 Project - Head Start Beanie

A few years ago I was shopping in the city with my husband and my mum when I was trying in berets in Myer, I should have brought one of them but I somewhat decided I didn't need it but have spend the last couple of years looking for a similar one.

I keep being told just knit one for yourself, I can honestly say that I have never knitted for myself because knitted baby accessories are so much cuter but also I don't have the hours to put in to make adult accessories.

Whilst I was on bed rest for my broken foot I was constantly online and noticed an advertisement for a knitting supplied shop using the above ball of wool. I instantly knew I needed it regardless so ordered it and waited patiently. 

Fortunately it arrived very quickly but unfortunately it arrived while we were moving house so it go quickly put into a box, until over the weekend when I started unpacking my craft room boxes.

I was determined to start this project, so the other night I started - 3 Hours is all it took, and those 3 hours were spent half watching tv whilst knitting! 

So here is my 3 Hour, 1 ball, 1 Project Beanie

I am in love and will need to order the other colours. The knit is so simple that it is perfect for a beginner knit or a quick project for the avid knitter (I think I will be ordering a few more for some people for Christmas) 

Please note this is no way sponsored just another project complete by me :)
