That’s So 90s Pop! A Fill-in Activity Book

I REALLY wanted to like this book. In fact, when it was recommended to me by Clarkson Potter, I was really excited and decided to review it in exchange for a copy–thank you Clarkson Potter Publishers. It’s packed full of 90s pop music artists you know (P!NK, Mariah Carey) and artists you may have forgotten about (B*witched, S Club 7). There’s even a Carson Daly mask in the book.

Format Matters: Ebook Vs Physical Book

040810_1333_TimeGoesBy1.jpgI’m going to be a bit revolutionary today.

To some readers, format matters. I’ve seen ebook only readers, and I’ve seen physical book only readers… People, we shouldn’t be fighting over this! We’re readers, we enjoy things that most of the population can only hope to enjoy–yes, that’s true. However, when you’re judging me for carrying one e-reader versus eight books in my bag,

When given the opportunity by its publisher, I knew I needed to read Kayla Rae Whitaker’s The Animators. I am very happy I did read it!
