Nabob Breakfast Blend

I got this from BzzAgent about a week ago. I decided to give it a try a few times before i did my review.

I tried the Nabob Breakfast Blend and the Full City Metropolis. I made the Full City Metropolis the way it said on the can but it was strong so I made it again and this time I used half of the reconmended amount. It was much better  . I also made the Breakfast Blend with half of the recommended amount.  Breakfast Blend tastes tangier than the usually brand I buy but it was still very good. Great start for the day.

If the price wasn't an issue I would definately buy  Nabob coffee.It has great taste and I would recommend did you coffee lovers.

A little information on the company 

Nabob is now Rainforest Alliance Certified, with at least 30% of their 100% Arabica coffee beans meeting the alliance’s standards for environmental, social and economic standards.  By 2009 they aim to have 60% of their beans produced on certified farms, moving to 100% within the next few years.  To my knowledge, they are the only major coffee company to take this pioneering step.  Many smaller, micro coffee companies have long been dedicated to sustainability in the environmental and social spheres, and I must congratulate Nabob on taking this step.

Nabob coffee is available in Canadian supermarkets nationwide, and costs approximately $5.29 for a 326 gram container and $11.49 for 930 grams.

Never Let You Go by Erin Healy

Book Description

Losing everything has made Lexi hold those she loves tightly. Hell is determined to loosen her grip.
Lexi lives in the shadow of choices her husband made. Especially Grant’s choice to leave seven years ago, without a word. Her relationship with their daughter, Molly, is now the most important thing in her life. Lexi will do anything—work grueling hours, attend church on her only day off, sacrifice financially—just to see Molly smile.
When Grant shows up declaring his intent to re-enter their daughter’s life, Lexi is skeptical of his motives. She soon determines not to let him near Molly. Then a drug dealer named Warden arrives on Lexi’s doorstep, demanding payment of Grant’s old debts.
But that's just the earthly perspective. Staggering supernatural events are spilling into her world in real and shocking ways. Hell's fury is great, but Heaven's power is greater still. In a novel that defies easy categorization, this has all the early buzz of the breakthrough read of 2010.
My review
It didn't take me long to read this book. It is a suspense/mystery and one of those book you do not want to put down. I spend hours one night reading it and ended up going to sleep very late because I just wanted to keep reading it.If you like suspense novels you might like this one. I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program.

NKOTB Coming Home

I pre-ordered this and got it a week after it came out. Unfortunately I had not had the time to watch it until today.I really wasn't going to review this but as I was watching it I decided to do a review.

I do not usually like these kind of movies so I was a little scared of buying it but since I have been a big fan of theirs since the 80's I decided  why not.  I do not regret buying it one at all. It is awesome and as I watched it it brought back memories from back when i was a teenage, listening to their music and going to their concert and also memories from the concert I went to in April 2009 in Victoria,BC.  I loved the guys talking about the concerts, cruise and such . I very much enjoyed it. What is there not to love?? It is NKOTB!!   

If you are a New Kids On The Block fan (past, present or future) you so totally buy this video .

I know there isn't much chance that the guy will be reading this but what the heck...   
Thank you very much for all the great music and for reuniting 15 years later and for making me feel like a giddy school girl all over again ;)

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

I finally finished reading it. It only took me a month to finish reading it . Not that it isn't good because it really is, I just didn't have time to read it. It is now on my list of favourite book and I will be buying the other books in the series.

If you have seen the show or even if you haven't but are into that kind of books then I really recommend this book.

The book introduces us to Charlaine Harris' heroine Sookie Stackhouse, a beautiful waitress in a small town bar. Not only does Sookie live in a world where vampires have recently been acknowledge as existing and are open to the public, she also has the gift/curse of being able to read people's minds.

I am sorry..

I know I have said I will review the Dead Until Dark book a month or so ago but I still haven't even had time to read it much. I have just been so busy with other reviews that  were more important and that had a deadline plus we are currently busy and stressed out because we are moving across Canada in July.  I will review it sometime soon. Don't know when but I will read and review it as soon as I can.

Also I have a book from BookSneeze being shipped to me and also some Nabob coffee being shipped to me so I will be doing those reviews soon.
