I Need Your Help!

So if you have followed me for awhile then you know that I wrote a post about James Patterson's program where he donates his money to indie bookstores. I was really moved by the articles I read on this program. I think that we all can relate when it comes to our love of bookstores. I am not here to preach or make you feel bad for going to chain bookstores, ordering books online, or using your E-reader because I do all of these! I do however think it is important to help out indie bookstores.
I have had some great experience's with indie stores because most of these owners have to work their butts off just to compete with the chain bookstores in their communities. So I bet you are wondering why I need your help right?
Well I want to start doing posts on here about indie bookstores from all over! I want my readers to know what make these bookstores worth the stop, but sadly I cant travel all over the place no matter how much I would like to. So my friends this is where you come in I want you to tell me your favorite indie bookstores and if you could leave me their website link if they have one. Tell me what makes them unique and keeps you coming back. I tried to make a video on my YouTube channel to get viewers  to let me know what stores they loved, but sadly I didn't get many answers...try like none. I am hoping to get a better response on here because I truly believe that this could turn into something amazing and fun for viewers to read.
I know sometimes it feels like we can't make a difference because we don't have a lot of money to donate. Maybe you are like me and live in a small town so you feel like there isn't many opportunities to help. Just by spreading the word about these bookstores IS helping and making a difference. I hope some of you share this passion and can help me spread the word. If you sadly haven't found a indie store you like that's okay that's what these posts are for! Just stay tuned and hopefully we can find a indie store near you that you can fall in love with =) Thank you so much for the help and please spread the word!

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks Top Ten:Villains (favorite, best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil, etc.)
I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
