Picks of the Month: July 2015


Picks of the Month is my monthly feature. Modeled after what I’m loving lately at Annie’s Eats (one of my favorite food blogs), I’ll be sharing the products, websites, pop culture, apps, etc that made my life easier and/or more fun the previous month. And, yes, as this is a book blog, I will probably find a way to sneak some mention of my favorite reads from the month too!


I first had IHOP’s Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Pancakes a few months ago and I have been back a few times since. They are the BEST thing I have ever ordered at IHOP. They’re very, very sweet and I’m not usually a fan of such sweet things (I prefer salt), but I love them.

I used a Barnes & Noble coupon on this Jonathan Adler Seasons Accessory Pouch. I love color and stripes so this was perfect! I carry it in my purse and inside it, I have a pen, a small notebook for taking review notes, and my Kindle. They just fit and I have everything I need for reviewing together.


I’ve been so busy getting back into blogging, among other things, that I only finished three books in July! I’m reading several more, but I’m not done yet. The best one I read was The Girl I Was Before by Ginger Scott.
