@DisneyHyperion releases Burning Magic by Joshua Khan

Many thanks to Disney Hyperion for providing this book for review.  
All opinions are mine.  
I'm the kinda' reader who just can't dive into a book that's part of series without reading the previous books in the series.  So before diving into Burning Magic by Joshua Khan, I had to find copies of the previous books in the series.
As luck would have it my kids had Shadow Magic and Dream Magic right on their bookshelves.  This series has the makings of a great on screen movie.  A strong, female lead character paired with a rebel of sorts boy.  The pair lead a cast of unforgettable characters sure to transport middle school readers into a world of magic and mystery.

The chapters are short but the adventures of Lily and Thorne are HUGE!

BURNING MAGIC (Disney-Hyperion; On Sale: April 10, 2018) by Joshua Khan is the third and final installment in the Shadow Magic trilogy. In this sizzling adventure, Lily the sorcerer queen and Thorn the giant-bat-whisperer journey to the Sultanate of Fire to help their friend K'leef in a no-holds-barred contest for the throne.
When Lily, aka the "witch queen" and bat-rider extraordinaire Thorn travel to Sultanate of Fire, things go terribly wrong. Instead of celebrating a reunion with their old friend K'leef, they are thrust into royal murder, an epic quest, and a deadly battle for the throne.

While investigating the murder, Lily learns shocking truths about her life that could destroy all she has achieved. Yet, among the ruins of her old life, she has the opportunity to become someone greater . . . and more terrifying.

Thorn and the magnificent bat, Hades, join the timid K'leef and the idiotic Gabriel Solar in a quest to find a phoenix. These fire birds are the key to saving the sultanate, but they nest within the Shardlands. The boys must defeat not only the monsters of that magical wilderness, but also rivals eager to claim the throne for themselves. Rivals that include a renegade from House Shadow.

Khan has done it again and even though I hate saying goodbye to Lily and Thorne, there is some sense of closure.   Readers are finally given answers about the background of Lily and Thorne and the reveals are surprising.  I am hoping for at least one more adventure...
Burning Magic is available at bookstores nationwide.  If your child enjoys adventurous tales with magic and mystery, then Burning Magic and other books in the Shadow Magic trilogy are probably a book they would enjoy.

Hello Spring!

Life is a Beach Giveaway Hop

Spring is in full swing.  The birds are singin'.  The pollen is falling and temps are FINALLY warming up.  So what better time time to start planning our Summer getaways.

This year - as always - we are beach bound.  It's one of our fave places to visit given we only get to the beach once or twice a year.  

Last year's visit to Cozumel was one for the record books. We stopped by this little restaurant and dined on grilled shrimp in a cabana right on the beach.  
'Ohana also has a line of tequilas in flavors I had never seen before.  Tropical flavors such as coconut, mango and pina colada.  Hubby and I tried the 'Ohana peanut butter tequila.  The owner said folks either love it or hate it... we LOVED it!!!
As I was sipping all I could think of was how good this peanut butter tequila would taste as a baste on my tequila wings.  It would be like a tequila satay wings type dish.

OH! The Places You'll Go! Giveaway Hop + 7 Out of the Box Uses for Erasers

Another Summer has come and gone and it's time to head Back to School!  

If you're anything like me you took advantage of all those Back to School deals and stocked up on all those back to school deals and now have a surplus of school supplies which will probably end up in a junk drawer or put away someplace where you will never find it when you need it.

Take for instance those pink erasers.  I buy a pack every year and every year without fail my family gives me that look when they see that pack of lone erasers in the back to school shopping cart.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house

Erase away scuffs on your kitchen floor with an eraser.  

Easily remove your kid's pop-up crayon masterpiece from the walls with an eraser. 

Remove stains from suede boots by gently brushing the eraser across the stain until it's gone.

Keep those tickling ivory piano keys nice and clean by erasing stains with one quick swipe.

Stubborn zippers loosen quickly by rubbing…
