Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

It has been a long time since I've read a book that made me want to just sit and finish it in one sitting, and in the past two weeks I've read two of them. One of them is the one in this review, A Darker Shade of Magic, and the other I'll review next … Continue reading Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab


First Impression Friday: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

I think I'm a few decades late getting on this train. I read The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman while traveling to LA a few weeks back and was absolutely stunned at how amazing it was.

Recipe Review: Easy Crockpot Chili

Original Recipe from Spend With Pennies. This is the second of three chili recipes that I'm going to review here on my blog. I went over the first one last week and it was a smashing success. I'm here to say that this week's recipe wasn't quite as good. First and foremost: disclaimer/changes I made: I … Continue reading Recipe Review: Easy Crockpot Chili
