Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you? - Suggested by A Great Read
First can I say how excited I am that I was this weeks pick?!!!! I literraly did a happy dance around the house. No shame, just living the life of a blogger we get excited over some crazy things. 

Well I guess my answer is pretty simple. I didn't have a lot of friends growing up that read so I didn't have anyone to recommend books to me. My mom and I would at least once a month drive the hour drive to the nearest bookstore and we would browse for hours! (Sorry we wasn't about to drive that long drive and stay 15 minutes we stayed pretty much ALL day.) I would look at the store employee's recommendation section to see their choices. For the most part though I would just grab a HUGE stack of books and take them to the sitting area and just read a little of each of them. If I had to force myself to put it down then I knew it was a keeper. These trips were some of my favorite memories growing up, and being able to share my love of reading with my mom has always been one of the greatest gifts.
 I still like to do this sometimes. Just going into a store and picking up a book you have never heard of. I feel like that's sometimes how you find some of your favorite books. There isn't any hype or bashing of the book, not many people know about it, it feels like your own precious find for just a little bit. Then of course after you have had your moment you recommend it to EVERYONE...blogger problems =)
What about you guys? Let me know how you use to find new books in the comments below =) If you are a new follower HI *Waves to you* make sure you let me know so I can follow you back =)
Happy Friday ya'll!!!

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…
