I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: Trapeze and Grit & Grace

After a crazy hectic week in which our apartment flooded and we were forced to relocate, we are now somewhat settled and finally able to return to our regular daily posting schedule although today's post will still be posting later than usual. We hope to return to our usual posting time with tomorrow's Where-To-Go-Wednesday.

We may have been given one or more of the books mentioned below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: Trapeze and Grit & Grace

Mom - Today I am recommending two books.

The first book I am recommending is Trapeze by Leigh Ansell. Trapeze is the story of Corey, a young trapeze artist. After a fire in the bigtop of the circus where Corey has spent her entire life, the circus falls on hard times, and Corey is forced to move in with the mother she hardly knows and attend public school for the first time. There she tries desperately to fit in by not letting people know about her circus performing past, and she finds herself falling for Luke, a cute popular boy with a dark secret. This book is an interesting story and a pretty fast read. It is not, however, a completely light and happy book and it does deal with and shine a light on some serious issues. Also, the ending might not please serious romantics. Over all, though it is a good book.

The second book I am recommending today is Grit & Grace. This book gives a brief background sketch of a wide variety of women in different fields and provides a quote from each. It is not only inspirational, but provides a book full of excellent role models for young women. However, the book is not only for young women, but can be read and enjoyed by anyone. If you want to read a book that is full of positivity and hopefulness, this book is a good choice.

And that's Mom's view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.


  1. I love that you have not one but two great recommendations for young women. Thank you. I think Grit and Grace will go on my Christmas list for several people.

    1. Yes, Grit and Grace would definitely make a great present. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom and for your comment.
