Tips for Tuesday - Games: Splurt and Books: The Last Charm

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

Games: Splurt


Me - Today I am recommending Splurt. Splurt is an enjoyable game. It is played with cards. Each card has a category on one side and qualifier on the other. The object is to be the first one to name something that fits both the category and the qualifier currently being played. It is super easy to learn and super easy to play. It is also a lot more fun than it sounds. It doesn't sound that exciting from the description, but it is a lot of fun to play. 


Books: The Last Charm


Mom - Today I am recommending The Last Charm by Ella Allbright. This story is uniquely told through a collection of charms on a bracelet. Leila and Jake meet as children when he moves into her old house and soon he begins sending her charms for the bracelet her mother left Leila when she abandoned Leila and her father. Leila thinks the charms are coming from her mother and Jake can never seem to find the right moment to tell her the truth nor can he ever really convince her of how much he cares for her and that he will always be there for her. Leila has both physical and emotional scars related to her mother's abandonment, and is too afraid of being abandoned again to let anyone get too close especially Jake. This sad but sweet love story is easy to get swept up in. Leila and Jake are an adorable couple whom you can't help rooting for. Their story is full of love, hope, and also heartbreak. You might want to keep tissues handy when you read it. 

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