3 Health Tips for the Holiday Season

3 Health Tips for the Holiday Season

December is usually known for an abundance of eating and a lack of exercise. Just because it is the holiday season, doesn’t give us an excuse to put on weight. Celebrating doesn’t have to include in eating & drinking a lot. It is a time to […]

December Book Club

December Book Club

Hello again! Welcome back to book club. I hope that you all enjoyed the last two books. This month is going to be good as well. I have picked two novels this month so that it would be a bit lighter during the holiday! Check them out…

BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS

book club bear town

Beartown: A Novel // “A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning.

All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected. Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. In this story of a small forest town, Fredrik Backman has found the entire world.” – Amazon

I have been wanting to read this book ever since I finished reading A Man Called Ove. I love this author and have fallen in love with his writing style. Check it out!

my absolute darling book clubMy Absolute Darling: A Novel // “Turtle Alveston is a survivor. At fourteen, she roams the woods along the northern California coast. The creeks, tide pools, and rocky islands are her haunts and her hiding grounds, and she is known to wander for miles. But while her physical world is expansive, her personal one is small and treacherous: Turtle has grown up isolated since the death of her mother, in the thrall of her tortured and charismatic father, Martin.

Then Turtle meets Jacob, a high-school boy who tells jokes, lives in a big clean house, and looks at Turtle as if she is the sunrise. And for the first time, the larger world begins to come into focus: her life with Martin is neither safe nor sustainable. Motivated by her first experience with real friendship and a teenage crush, Turtle starts to imagine escape, using the very survival skills her father devoted himself to teaching her.”Amazon

I don’t know what it was about this book but I was drawn to it. I think I was just intrigued to see what was going to happen to Turtle. I will give an update once I have finished the book.

Gift Guide for Him

Gift Guide for Him

I always find that this is the hardest gift guide I do every year. Guys always seem to either have everything they want already or they are just so picky that is is hard to surprise them with the perfect gift.

When I put together this gift, I always try to pull together different personalities of men so that there is a wide range of options available.
