A-Z PE Challenge Day 8 (H)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with the letter from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the hearty letter H!

The Blog dejour is:

happymeerkatreviews

This blog is outstanding. The Happy  Meerkat, or C is a reviewer of all things. Honest reviews about, video games, books, Home and Garden items, Electronics and many many other items. It is good to see such a variety of reviews on one site.  There is also the bonus of some original writings on the blog. I for one loved the poem just posted a few days ago. Beautifully written.

I understand the Meerkat’s reason for starting the blog. As a way of overcoming something painful in a therapeutic manner.  That’s exactly why I started my reviews. I am glad to see that it is working for others as well.  C has really done well with the blog and is also encouraging and friendly when commenting on other blogs.  I always am happy to see that the happymeerkat  has visited my page.

C is also willing to review books and some products and provides a review submission page.  With the in depth reviews that are on the blog, it would be a good thing to have a review from C. Here is how the Happy meerkat feels about the reviews on the blog.

I do hope that you will enjoy reading my reviews.  They are of course my personal opinion on each product so some of you may not agree with the ratings I give.  But even if you disagree with the star rating I still hope the contents of my reviews will be enjoyed.  My reviews are written as I would like to read them if someone else did write them so I hope you will enjoy this style too.

Enjoy your special letter day today. C. The Happy Meerkat . Today is all about you!

This challenge was created by gapawa.

He came up with the A-Z People Edition challenge and it is an awesome idea. If you want to join in the fun, then just join in.There is no set date or month. Just 26 days of your choosing. Here is the link to the instructional blog you can visit

Here is a Quote from his blog explaining his motivation for this fun challenge.

” This is the people edition! So on the first day you find someone who’s screen name starts with A and you check out their blog. The idea is that you read through some of their posts, introduce yourself and give them some feedback. Then, write your post of the day and publish it, describing who the person is and your experience finding and interacting with them, what you thought of their posts. What you came away with. I think it could be fun:)”

A-Z PE Challenge Day 3 (C)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with the letter  A  all the way to  Z.

Today we are celebrating the curvy letter C!

This means we take a trip to the great state of Ohio.ohiostateoldredbrick

Ohio is where we will meet and get to know more about Amanda. The first thing to know is that Amanda has a really wonderful blog called:

Cover2CoverMom

Her blog’s motto is “Escaping the grind of everyday life, one book at a time.

Amanda is a 29 year old who is married to her high school sweetheart and is the mother of two. She stays at home with her children and she stays really busy with sports, fitness, teaching her children, cooking, and chauffeur.
She lists even more jobs in her about me section.

Amanda says:

“To her, books are a way to escape the grind of day to day life.  She loves to get swept away in a book that transports her to another time and place.  Amanda’s reading comfort zones are historical fiction and contemporary fiction, however she is actively trying to branch out and expand her literary horizons”

Amanda also does a variety of book reviews. She writes her reviews in many different genre. When I go to her blog I am always impressed with her viewpoint and her lay out. She makes her reviews look so nice and professional. Her reviews always include the synopsis as well as her own thoughts on the book. She also does ARC reviews.

Amanda is happy to share her weekly wrap up and hauls with her followers. The entire blog is interesting and easy to navigate. She also is willing to do Book Tags and has won several awards for her blog. It is just a creative place to visit.

This would be the perfect time to hop over and meet her. She is quick to respond to comments and to visit my page when I post something new.

Amanda @ Cover2CoverMom this is all about you. Enjoy your special letter day!
