Booksipper Bulletin – April Edition

Hello Booksippers!

There were no April showers around here; this month found me in a drought- a reading drought that is.  I have had a lot on my mind and when that happens all I read is fiction fluff. So I curl up with one of these easy reads and a hot cuppa tea and zone out.

This month on Booksipper I added a post about homeschooling to the blog. I plan to do more.  I will share a bit about homeschooling older children and what that looks like at our house.  Check it out if you home school or even if you're just curious.

 I do not have any new reads to recommend but this title is sure to please: http://bit.ly/tearosebook This book has it all- star crossed love, suspense and a twisting plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I discovered a new way to prepare my loose leaf tea. Read all about it here: http://bit.ly/1XzdzCL  It might just become your favorite new way to brew a cuppa.


That is all for April. Thanks for reading and sipping along with me!

Booksipper Bulletin – February Edition

Hello Booksippers! 

The cold and blustery month of February is coming to a close today.  February is the perfect time to curl up with a blanket and a book to sip on your favorite hot beverage!
With the massive snowstorm we had I was very glad to have found this new author and series to keep me company.  Keep reading to find out what it was.

Today is Leap Day!  I wonder who decided to put the extra day in the winter time?  Why not when the weather is nice?
But still it is nice to have extra time to get things accomplished or maybe do something fun.
What will you be doing with this extra day?

I choose another title from my annual non-fiction reading list for February reading. I picked 1000 Years Over a Hot Stove. I wrote all about it here: http://bit.ly/1XzD7zZ

It is shaping up to be a tough decision for next months read.  Take a look at my 2016 List and tell me what you think I should read next.

My favorite fiction selection for the month was written by the author Nora Roberts.  One book wasn't enough and it became a series read – they were that good!

February had me steeping multiple cups of PG Tips tea.  This English brand of tea has a permanent place in my tea cupboard.  Read my thoughts here: http://bit.ly/1NZAd0a

I am still sipping my way through the Downton Abbey sampler that I purchased a while back. I am trying to decide which flavor I enjoyed the most.  I will post about that next month with the airing of the final episode.

Thanks for reading and sipping along with me this February.
I plan to spend this "extra day" reading something new and sipping tea, of course!

Booksipper Bulletin – January Edition

Hello fellow Booksippers!

The first month of 2016 is coming to a close. 

The days seemed to turn almost as quickly as the pages in my favorite book of the month.  Keep reading to find out what that book was!

 I picked up a number of books this month that I just couldn't get into.  I had to remind myself that I am not in high school anymore, and I do not have to finish a book just because it has good reviews. 
I encourage you to put down whatever book you are forcing yourself to get through, because-

January kick started my Annual Non-Fiction Booklist for 2016.  I am looking forward to reading all of these books and sharing my thoughts with you.
I have finished one of the titles and wrote about it here: http://bit.ly/realfoodwhattoeatandwhy

Now for my favorite fiction read of the month! 
Without a doubt it was – Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati.  This book is a sweeping romantic saga set in the wilds of upper New York in the 1700's.

The month of January was National Hot Tea month.  I enjoyed having a reason to drink even more of my favorite beverage!  I purchased tea online for the first time with the Republic of Tea.  I wrote all about my experience here: http://bit.ly/1nu6eby

 January 2016 has been filled with good books and steaming cups of hot tea.
Thanks for reading and sipping along with me.
