Posted May 24, 2016 by Marie in Reading and Book News / 188 Comments


It is time to head to the beach which is something I won’t be doing this year but I wish I was. I am not taking a beach vacation this year so I can save up for a big one next year. With the sun and sand in mind I am thrilled to bring you this amazing hop and am, as always, thankful to our hosts The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island for coming up with such an awesome hop.

When I thought about what I would take tot he beach there was really only one answer and that was a book! Well more like my tablet full of great books so I figured why not help my readers outwith that as well. So I am giving away two great prizes to one awesome reader!

Gold iPad Mini

    I’m really not huge on summer, honestly. I don’t like the heat. It kills me. And I’m forced to stay inside a lot, not that I’m really an outdoorsy person to begin with. But I much prefer spring and fall.

    My favorite thing about summer is getting the chance to wind down. While my child isn’t in school during the summer it’s more mellow and relaxed, calmer, do stuff at our pace instead of around school and get more accomplished. My little one can play to her hearts content.

    For the last few years, butterflies have been my favorite thing about summer, especially Monarch butterflies. I’ve been growing milkweed, then collecting Monarch eggs and caterpillars, which I raise until they become butterflies, when I release them. It’s absolutely amazing, and their beauty at all stages is astounding.
