The Whimsical Mama

<3 Such is the life of a stay at home mommy and Army wife (:

Please Be Kind, Rewind: 8-14 December 2013 December 15, 2013

I am posting this late because I forgot to format it completely before we left for the weekend. It was that time of year again. Hubby’s Guard unit’s family Christmas dinner. Completely boring, but you know, I’m a good Army wife so we go! We also got to hang with the Parks family and THAT my friends is ALWAYS great! (: Especially when I kick some butt at Rummy. Just sayin’.

Soooo.. It’s up a day late. Oops! Another week down. This year has gone by so quickly!


City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (audiobook) Story 5 stars. Narrator 2-3 stars. I really didn’t like her narration. Her voice was a bit grating on my nerves.

The Runaway Queen by Cassandra Clare. 3 stars. I love revolutionary France, but this just felt lacking

Pawn by Aimee Carter. 4 ½ – 5 stars. It was incredible! Review to come.

Roar & Liv (UTNS 0.5) by Veronica Rossi

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare (audiobook) Already a million times better than the other narrator!

Currently Reading:

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (audiobook) I’m happy the narrator for City of Ashes returned for this one too! (:

Please be kind, rewind: 20 October – 2 November November 2, 2013

So this is two weeks worth of rewinding. The month of October was crazy and last week was spent in Northern VA with my hubby’s family for a funeral. I didn’t have much spare time so the blog got ignored. Sorry! Sometimes my attentions are needed elsewhere. I did get to meet the fabulously amazing Jodi Meadows the day before my birthday on the way to Northern VA so that was GREAT! (: Love her.

Between reading, NaNoWriMo, and being a mama/wifey I don’t expect to get a lot of blogging other than my usual scheduled posts up! I will try though!
