On Vacation!

Hi everyone so today we go on our trip to Philadelphia, PA for one week and then Poughkeepsie, NY for Thanksgiving at my in-laws. So I will be taking a break from blogging for two weeks!

I do have posts I pre-made like my usual Top Ten Tuesday and New Releases posts. I have some book reviews here and there so if I don’t respond, it’s because I’m not checking my blog for the two weeks.

I’m hoping the kids get to see some fall foliage? Anyway the trip should be fun and I’m just praying we all stay healthy throughout. See you in two weeks!

Chills and Thrills ~ Spooky Book Season

I don’t read many spooky books. I mean I do not really read horror, it’s lite horror at best lol. But I love a good thrilling book once in awhile and especially during spooky season! Here are some thrilling books I’ve enjoyed:

List of Books I’ve Read in 2022 – Food and Romance Edition

I’ve read a a few books this year that featured food and cooking. So I wanted to list them in a post. Let me know in the comments if you read any of these or if you have any to recommend that I can check out next year!

Food and Romance

  • Fake it Till You Bake It by. Jamie Wesley – this one is a cute adult romance that involves a football player who bakes cupcakes.
  • Savvy Sheldon Feels Good as Hell by. Taj McCoy – Savvy loves cooking for the people in her life and isn’t that the best kind of cook?
  • The Donut Trap by. Julie Tieu – this one is set in a donut bakery but I don’t know that the family loved making donuts. It was a business that helped an immigrant family achieve their American dream. But I liked how it represents Cambodian, Chinese and Vietnamese culture and the immigrant family experience.

I love how diverse this list is and I hope to be adding more to it next year! Have you read any of these or planning to?

Books with Witches

What’s spooky season without witches? I love book about witches and witchcraft. It always get me into the Halloween moon! So here are some books with witches in them.

Books with Witches

I love how these witchy books have some kind of purple tone to them. Love, love, love it! Purple is definitely a witchy color!💜

I’ve only read 3 of these but all of the others are on my endless TBR list lol. So one day I’ll definitely read all of these.

Autumn Color Book Covers

I know Fall/Autumn officially starts on Sept 22nd but for me it starts when the Ber months begin and we are already midway into September! So how about we celebrate with some Fall/Autumn themed book covers.

Autumn Color Book Covers

We don’t really have an autumn in Hawaii with the leaves changing colors so I used to love traveling in the fall just to experience the season. What’s your favorite thing about autumn?

Summer Lovin’, Had Me A Blast ~ Pink Book Covers| 9/2/22

I was so heartbroken when I heard that Olivia Newton-John passed a few weeks ago. I grew up watching Grease and Grease 2. My summers were filled with rewatching these movies and I wanted to be a Pink Lady so bad. So in honor of Olivia Newton-John and her amazing role as Sandy in Grease, who had Danny Zuko on his knees by the end of the movie lol…here are some PINK book covers.

Summer Lovin’, Had Me A Blast ~ Pink Book Covers


Sandy was the sweet, innocent, dreaming of love kinda girl…and Rizzo, I always thought I was more like her 😅. I love how the Pink Ladies were all so different, but tough and strong in their own ways. I love Olivia’s voice – even outside of Grease, my dad was a big fan of hers so I grew up with her music in the 80’s.

Rest in Love Olivia! 💕





What’s some of your young adult summer romance books?
