5 Winners Will Receive: 

A HighFive Easy Mattress Protector / Waterproof Fitted Sheet! 

A $155 TRV Giveaway!

 

Whether we like it or not, those bedtime diaper leaks do happen and it’s good to be prepared for when they do. Before learning of HighFive Easy, I always used a waterproof mattress protector on my daughter’s bed and then covered it with a fitted sheet. Now, with HighFive Easy to the rescue that’s not something I need to do anymore!HighFive Easy makes a 100% cotton crib mattress protector that is also a waterproof fitted sheet thanks to its TPU layer. TPU fabrics are made using a (slightly more expensive) heating process that “bakes in” the laminated waterproofing properties rather than using chemicals. Then the top layer of material was chosen, so that it was comfortable and breathable for your child.

The Math Lovin’ Momma Reads

Project Emergence Book Cover

 Project Emergence

Written by Jamie Zakian


Recently I was asked to read and review a new YA Science Fiction novel. This book was just released this week so what better time to tell you what I think!
Before I do that, however, why I don’t I tell you a little about the book and its author. You know peek your interest and then I’ll tell you if it’s worth your time! (Spoiler alert… it is.) 

Project Emergence

An ancient Hopi myth says people arrived on tiny silver pods that fell from the sky.

But the truth is far more terrifying.

Two-hundred fifty-eight teens are sent from a dying Earth to a terraformed Mars as part of the Emergence Program, mankind’s last hope before solar flares finish off their planet and species. Among the brave pioneers are sixteen-year-old Joey Westen and her twin brother, Jesse.

After only minutes in space, something triggers a total ship lock down.

With the help of their roommates, the Matsuda twins (notorious hackers and shady secret-keepers), Joey and Jesse stumble onto an extremist plot to sabotage the Emergence Program.

But Joey and Jesse didn’t travel to the deepest pits of space and leave their mother behind to be picked off in a high-tech tin can. They’ll lie, hack, ​and ​even kill to survive the voyage and make it to Mars.

About the Author

Jamie Zakian
Jamie Zakian is a full-time writer who consumes the written word as equally as oxygen.

Living in South Jersey with her husband and rowdy family, she enjoys farming, archery, and blazing new trails on her 4wd quad, when not writing of course. She aspires to one day write at least one novel in every genre of fiction.

 

My Thoughts on Project Emergence

I’ll just be honest, I went into my reading with pretty low expectations. I mean end-of-the-world stories seem to be a dime a dozen these days. 

Then I started reading.

I read Project Emergence in two days. (More than two sittings because I have a toddler and a full time job…) I could barely put it down. I was hooked and wanted to know more from page one. Some books start off so slow, you try to give them the benefit of the doubt because you know they have to do some back story and introduce the characters but Zakian does it with pizzazz!

Not only was the story fast paced and fun, with a few emotional moments mixed in for good measure, the characters seemed well developed to me. I’m not a literary expert by any means, but I wasn’t bored. I connected with the characters. I liked some, but not all. There was just enough back story to keep the present interesting but leave you wanting to know more about the past. 

There is a little bit of romance, but no more than you’d expect in a YA novel. Some flirting, an innocent kiss or two, and teenage angst overthinking every little action. Just the right balance. The romance doesn’t over take the story… ever.

Another plus for the story was that it kept me guessing. Just when I thought I knew what would happen next another branch of the plot popped up and knocked me back into uncertainty. 

Now, I’m a nerd. I love science fiction and fantasy but this story didn’t have too much of either. Obviously due to the space travel and science-y stuff it fits into the science fiction category but I think any lover of good fiction would enjoy this, even if sci-fi isn’t their thing.


Don’t stop yet! There’s a surprise if you keep reading!

NEOSAN Blanket Scarf

NEOSAN® Blanket Scarf

Normally I don’t do much for accessorizing, but I do love a nice scarf and when I received this one for review I was not disappointed. The fabric is nice and thick and it is very warm! (Great for Iowa winter!) I also really like the size of the scarf. It measures about 76 inches long and 25 inches wide and is made from an acrylic that has the feel of cashmere. It think it may easily be the softest scarf I own!

The one thing I didn’t like was the diamond pattern. When I ordered it I really didn’t notice the stair-stepping effect between the white and pink parts of the pattern and in person that specific part of the pattern seems to be more noticeable. Basically, I should have looked more closely before making my selection!

I like this scarf so much that I’m giving one away to a lucky reader! If you’d like to have a chance to win, scroll down to the giveaway tool and complete the entries.

Teasia Tea: Floral Variety

Teasia Teas Giveaway - 3 Winners

I have always been more of a coffee drinker than a tea drinker, but as I’ve gotten (a little) older and have been trying to be healthier I’ve started delving into the world of tea.

Believe me there is a lot to learn!

Tea has a lot of health benefits like helping to reduce levels of stress hormones, lower blood-pressure, boost metabolism, and improve strength. All good things in my opinion! 

So when Teasia contacted me about sampling their Floral Variety tea box I jumped at the chance to test out some new tea flavors. This box contains 36 individual pods, perfect for my Keurig in my classroom at school, with nine each of the four flavors. The flavors included are Jasmine Green Tea, Rose Black Tea, Rooibos Lemongrass, and Chamomille Mint. 

My Thoughts

Overall, I am really happy with the Floral Variety box. I have tried all four flavors and I really enjoyed all of them, which was honestly unexpected. I also really liked that I got some caffeinated and some caffeine-free in the same box, that added another level of variety to the box.

I’ll talk about the caffeinated varieties first because I’m almost always looking for a little caffeine in the mornings and afternoons of my school days. Now, an important note, while some teas have caffeine they usually have less caffeine that a cup of coffee. So if you’re trying to slow down your caffeine intake (like me) they make a perfect swap for a beverage with higher caffeine content.

  • Jasmine Green Tea: Now, I’ve had green tea before and I kind of had the impression going in that green tea is a little over-rated. I really enjoyed the addition of the subtle floral flavoring that came from the jasmine. This has become one of my favorite afternoon pick-me-ups when I’m teaching.
  • Rose Black Tea: Again, I’ve had black teas before Teasia. Usually I find black tea to be a little bitter, sometimes too strong. The Rose Black Tea does have a stronger flavor than the Jasmine Green Tea but I didn’t find it to be bitter and the subtle added rose floral flavor was quite nice.

Now for the caffeine-free options. I don’t drink these as much at school unless I’ve already had my caffeine fix for the day. However, they do make excellent beverages for days when I’m not feeling well or if I simply want something warm to drink.

  • Rooibos Lemongrass Tea: This flavor was new all around. I had never even heard of Rooibos Tea until the box arrived. It has more of a dark, almost earthy flavor (from the rooibos, I think) with a hint of bright that I’m guessing comes from the lemongrass. It is definitely not my favorite of the box, but the pods aren’t going to go to waste either!
  • Chamomile Mint Tea: This is always one of my favorite flavors of tea and Teasia did not disappoint. Just as soothing as one could hope to have and the perfect balance between the chamomile and the mint! This is my favorite of the box, hands down.

Another reason I’m a new found fan of Teasia is that with every purchase of Teasia teas, a portion of the proceeds is donated to support charities in the areas of environment, education, health care, and poverty.

The Other Place – Book Review + Giveaway

The Other Place

Book details:

The Other Place by Elizabeth Roderick
Publication date: July 5th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult
My Thoughts: 
What I liked most about this book was that the main character is not the usual main character; not the expected personality of a main character. Justin is a guy that the majority of the population won’t relate to directly. There are parts of his character I could relate to and there were parts that I had to try to understand in order to really get into the book. That necessity for me to try to understand him was part of what drew me into the book.
The story line kept moving, I never really felt like I was reading a chapter where nothing happened or a chapter that didn’t move the story along. I wanted to know what would come next and I wasn’t always able to anticipate what was going to be on the next page. Definitely a positive thing in my book. If I can anticipate everything that is going to happen I get bored very quickly. Kudos to the author for keeping me interested!
For me a five-star book is one that I would read again and this book doesn’t really meet that criteria, but I would give it 4 stars.  I’m having a hard time writing this review because I don’t really want to give away anything that isn’t stated in the synopsis that follows. Personally I hate book reviews that have spoilers. That being said, I don’t know what else to write that won’t ruin it for a potential reader so I will end it here.
Even if you don’t think it sounds like your cup of tea I encourage you to at least give it a shot!
Synopsis:

Living in Justin Flaherty’s mind has never been easy. Unfortunately, things are about to get much worse…

At eighteen years old, most guys are chasing girls or dreams. Justin, on the other hand, wants to draw and be left alone. He’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia, but it’s more than that. He’s in tune with the Dark Energy that surrounds us all, and can see how it controls people’s actions. Sometimes, the Dark Energy will give him visions, to help him on the road to enlightenment.

When his mother hooks up with a Baptist preacher named David who believes Justin’s schizophrenia can be cured with prayer, Justin knows he has to get out—or risk involuntary commitment in a religious facility.

After a brush with incarceration, Justin takes off to San Francisco, where his drawings are not just noticed, but admired…

Justin’s bizarre and beautiful drawings create a stir in the art world. Meanwhile, he’s homeless, couch surfing, and trapped in a continuous battle with his mental illness. His salvation is a girl named Liria Czetski with a shady past. They’d met a year ago, and she’s appeared in his visions ever since. It turns out Liria has been sharing those visions, something that is a surprise to everyone but Justin…

When secrets surface, Justin is forced to realize that being a genius has a downside. Surrounded by people who want to exploit his talent, he must fight not only for his career and freedom, but perhaps for his life…

AUTHOR BIO:

ELIZABETH RODERICK grew up as a barefoot ruffian on a fruit orchard near Yakima, in the eastern part of Washington State. After weathering the grunge revolution and devolution in Olympia, Washington, Portland, Oregon and Seattle, she recently moved to a small cluster of houses amidst the vineyards of California’s Central Coast.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and worked for many years as a paralegal and translator. She is a musician and songwriter, and has played in many bands, rocking some instruments she doesn’t even know the real names for, but mostly guitar, bass and keyboards.

Elizabeth writes novels for young adults and adults; short stories; and memoir which is way more interesting than it should be. Her stories are about love, death, gang warfare, and madness; her characters tend to be of the type that society generally shuns: addicts, convicts, and the mentally ill. She believes if people get to know these characters in stories and in real life, they’ll find them more likeable than they originally thought.

She applies Hunter S. Thompson’s Gonzo method to fiction writing. It often gets a little heavier than what she had in mind, but she chalks it up to forced consciousness expansion.
