5 ** I listened to this as on an audiobook, from Scrib’d. If you are parenting a little one who has either reached toddlerhood or is about to enter into that stage, read (or listen to) this book. It was funny, and relatable. If nothing else, it lets you know that you are not alone and that you’re likely to survive this stage. It was funny and I finished it quickly. Out of all of the experiences that I’ve had, I am glad to say that I have not found poop in my purse!
4 **** This was my son’s bedtime story. It is a series that I keep saying that we were going to go back to and haven’t until now. I am not sure why, other than book distractions. It is funny and my son seems to enjoy them. This time it was about being a pirate and the woes of finding buried booby-trapped treasures.
3.5 *** This is the second book in the Cavanaugh Island series. I originally read Sanctuary Cove for my February project, and I am just now getting to the rest of the series. I listened to this on audio, via Scrib’d. I really enjoyed it. It was a nice romance with a bit of a mystery to it. I can’t say it was very suspenseful, the resolution to everything was actually anti-climatic. At least where the mystery was concerned. But I enjoyed the romance part of it, it was a nice blend of sweet and sexy.
2.5 ** This is a review book, and while I did enjoy it, the ending changed my opinion of the whole thing. This was a book that I read at the right time, as it reflected the struggle that I was similarly in (raising two little kids with a partner that was busy working). There is truth to be found here, and if I could pass this on to every struggling mom and their spouses/significant others, I would. As things begin to unfold things get uncomfortable and hard decisions are made. While I didn’t necessarily agree with them, I did respect the characters for making them. But then the ending came, and basically undid everything I experienced. I was mad and a bit bitter. In truth, I still am.
5 ***** Another book that I picked up because I needed some humor and parenting encouragement. Sometimes it’s all about knowing that you’re not alone.
4 **** This is an audiobook that I found scrolling through Scrib’d looking for something since I was in the mood for Christmas. It was funny, and heartwarming. I found that I didn’t want to stop listening to the story, I wanted to be with the characters and in that town. No, it’s not realistic in the littlest bits. But that’s the magic of Christmas, to see things and feel things as they should be.
3.5 *** This is a review book, and a full review will be posted sometime this week. Since this was an older review book, I chose to listen to it on audio, via Scrib’d. I finished it in one day, it was another book that I read at the right time. It was something that I needed to hear, permission for me to let go and feel and then move on.
