Monthly Wrap-up: May 2017

May was a very stressful month and I used reading to help relieve that stress. I got married on May 27th and the wedding couldn’t have been any more perfect. Everything didn’t go quite as planned but the weather was nice and the ceremony was exactly what I had hoped for. My daughter didn’t want to walk down the aisle but when she saw her dad standing at the other end waiting for her she ran to him and that made it so much better.

Money Saving Mom’s Make Over Your Mornings

If you’ve been a reader here for a while then you know that I have been trying to get more organized in my life and at home. A few months ago I came across the Make Over Your Mornings course by Crystal Paine.If you don’t know who Crystal Paine is then you are truly missing out. She is known for her blog Money Saving Mom where she gives advice about money management and time management among other things. She wrote this great book called Money Saving Mom’s Budget where she walks you through the baby steps needed to set up a successful budget.

Anyways, back to Make Over Your Mornings… This is a 14-day online course designed to help you take the stress out of your morning routine. There are a series of videos and worksheets with one for each day that help prioritize your tasks. I felt rejuvenated after taking this course. It helped me stream-line the tasks that have to be done in the morning and get rid of the tasks that were weighing me down. Before I took this course I didn’t have an actual morning routine. Most days I would run late for work trying to get my daughter and myself ready. I honestly felt like I was failing at life since I hate being late for anything. Make Over Your Mornings made me realize that if I could just set up an actual routine for myself that I would not only be on time, but I wouldn’t feel like a zombie on my way to work. It was a truly amazing realization.

I’m about to give the Make Over Your Evenings class a try so look for a post on that in the future!

Changes Are Coming

For a while now I have debated on the best way to go about this. I love reviewing books but I also want to pursue my other passions. I tried to do two separate blogs but working full-time, taking care of a family, selling Beauticontrol and running two blogs was way too stressful. I felt like there was never enough time in the day. Therefore, I have decided to combine the two blogs.

I am a planner addict and I love to make things. I will still post mainly reviews and things about books in general, but I want to have posts about planning, organizing, and crafting as well. I recently made some tabs for my planner using paint card samples and I want to show them off! lol

Starting July 30th, the schedule for The Crafty Engineer’s Bookshelf will be as follows:

Sundays- Planner Peeks/Planning
Mondays- Book Review/Book Blitz
Tuesdays- Book Blitz/Top Ten Tuesday
Wednesdays- Book Review/Book Blitz
Thursdays- Organizing/Crafts
Fridays- Book Review/Book Blitz/ Discussion
Saturdays- none
Of course, no schedule is perfect so there may be an occasional book review on days that I have allotted for something else. I hope everyone enjoys my new posts!

Monthly Wrap-up: April 2017

April was a busy month. I started a new job that allowed me to have more time with my daughter. I spent most of the month working on wedding plans and trying to figure out what else we were missing. I read more than I thought I would have been able to.

Hell hath no fury like Valentine . . .
Five years. It's been five years of blissful peace for private eye Valentine Shepherd and her hot-ass husband, Max Carressa. Five years of watching their twins grow up healthy and happy, even as Val waits for Hell to unleash its fury. Her enemies have been planning, and Val knows she doesn't have nearly enough weapons to protect her family . . .
Yet Val and Max have one advantage---their insatiable desire for each other allows them to see into the future, and the visions they share may just give them a chance. But as events are set into motion that endanger everyone Val's ever loved, she'll do whatever it takes to stop the horror she's already seen---even if it means her end.

Review
Reckoning is the final book in the Valentine Shepherd series by Shana Figueroa. It’s a supernatural romance/suspense novel and it’s phenomenal. I don’t normally read this genre since the few I have managed to read have felt dumbed down especially compared to this series.
Val and her husband, Max, know that hell is going to unleash its fury eventually. It’s been 5 years of peace that has allowed them to watch their twins grow but Val knows her enemies are plotting their revenge. She also knows there is no way she will be able to protect everyone she loves. The desire between her and Max gives them an advantage- being able to see visions of the future; which will help them but it may not be enough.
I loved this entire series and this book wrapped that up nicely. I am always afraid to read the final book in any series because I am afraid I will not like how it ends. I thought Reckoning ended in a way that gives the author the opportunity to revisit this world at a later date if she so chooses. I love the chemistry between Val and Max and we don’t lose any of that throughout. I also love when Val goes on a warpath and the deaths start stacking up. That makes me sound like a sadist but trust me if you read this series you will understand what I mean. I’d recommend everyone give this series a try even if the genre isn’t your usual. You might be surprised.

About Shana Figueroa

Shana Figueroa is a published author who specializes in romance and humor, with occasional sojourns into horror, sci-fi, and literary fiction.

She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, two young daughters, and two old pugs. She enjoys reading, writing (obviously), martial arts, video games, and SCIENCE---it's poetry in motion!

  • Finish Mandala Blanket- I’m not even sure where this is at so I need to find it. I miss crocheting regularly.

Mini Blog Ahead #2 Wrap-up

Mini Blog Ahead #2 is over and it went by super quickly. I only managed to get 15 extra posts instead of the 20 that I wanted but I did better than I thought I would. I had wreck and totaled my car at the beginning of the event and that took away some of my blogging time what with being sore and trying to find a new car.

Here are the posts I completed:

  • 4 Monthly wrap-ups for March-June (I was way behind)
  • 6 reviews
  • 2 book blitzes
  • 3 discussion/other posts

I seriously hope I can start blogging ahead more because it is really satisfying not having to rush to get tomorrow’s post written. Did you participate? If so, how did it go for you? If not, do you blog ahead?

The History of Hilary Hambrushina by Marnie Lamb #BlogTour #Review

The History of Hilary Hambrushina
Marnie Lamb
Publication date: May 31st 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Hilary has one goal for her first year in junior high: to become popular. But her plans are turned upside down when her best friend leaves for the summer and a quirky girl named Kallie moves in next door. Kallie paints constellations on her ceiling, sleeps in a hammock, and enacts fantastical plays in front of cute boys on the beach. Yet despite Kallie’s lack of interest in being -cool, – Hilary and Kallie find themselves becoming friends. That summer friendship, however, is put to the test when school begins, reigniting Hilary’s obsession with climbing the social ladder. As Hilary discovers the dark side to popularity, she must decide who she wants to be before she loses everything.

Review

The History of Hilary Hambrushina takes place the summer before Hilary starts junior high. It starts with her saying she is writing her memoir and it had a feel to it that it was written by someone of that age. It made it a little hard to read and this book is definitely geared toward the younger side of the young adult genre. I think it would have been better to put in the middle grade genre. It would be great for preteens to read as they struggle with starting a new school and popularity. I didn’t really get anything from it and was a little disappointed with it. It was good just not what I was expecting. I think there are a lot of lessons to be learned in this book and would recommend that girls read this before going to junior high.

Rating: 3.5 stars

Rockstar by Stacey Kennedy #ReleaseBlitz

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty 
and a whole lot more complicated!
ROCK STAR
A Bad Boy Homecoming Novel
Stacey Kennedy
Releasing June 27, 2017

 

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.

Veterinarian, Rae Evans expects to attend a dreadful ten-year high school
reunion. Instead, she’s confronted by a past she’s never gotten over. The love of her life, Travis Walker, has returned to Catfish Creek, and the now-famous rock star wants only three things: Her. Naked. And screaming his name.
 
Fresh off his last world tour, Travis has returned to town to get a dose of reality. With fame casting a superficial cloud over Travis’s life, he’s scrambling to stay afloat. He needs an anchor, and Rae is that for him. But as he finds himself, he’s determined to remind Rae of the heat that once burned between them.
Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart. But Rae’s not that young girl who watched her high school sweetheart race off to become famous. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and realizes when a man needs her. She just has to decide if she should put the past on repeat, or walk away from it forever.

STACEY KENNEDY is the USA Today bestselling author of the Dirty Little Secrets and Club Sin series. She writes deeply emotional romances about powerful men and the wild women who tame them. When she’s not writing sensual stories, she spends her time in southwestern Ontario with her real life hero, her husband, their two young children, and her other babies: a mini labradoodle named Jax and a chocolate labrador named Murphy. Stacey is a proud chocolate, television show, Urban Barn, and wine addict. She likes her heroes in her books like she likes her coffee . . . strong and hot!
