KitNip Box November 2018 – Transportation

Subscription boxes are always fun for humans, but they are fun for your furry loved ones as well!

Midnight and Milo both love the toys that come in the KitNip box! This month’s theme was transportation so they got a stuffed taxi, helicopter, and sailboat. As roommates, Midnight and Milo play together all the time and share toys as well. This is the perfect box for them to get new toys at a reasonable price.

In addition to the 3 stuffed toys, they also received a bag of treats as well as a toy dangler for humans to play with them as well.

Best part, all of this only cost $19.99 + shipping! Each toy is valued at $5-$6 each so this box is definitely worth the price! And as you can see with Milo, the box is a toy as well šŸ˜‰

If you are interested, here is a link to get started

See below for some pictures of the cats loving their toys! For videos, take a peek at my instagram:

Journey to Jershon: Scars of the Dark Sorcerer by Joel Heath

A quick and easy read, this book was very engaging and difficult to put down. I loved watching Gabe gain the courage and strength he needed to go on his journey. His story is easy to resonate with as everyone has doubts about themselves throughout their lives. Gabe shows how you can overcome those doubts to be able to do what you need to do.

I would have loved more details and explanations as I was a little confused on some of the story transitions but this book did leave me wanting more. Iā€™m looking forward to the next one!

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

I decided to try this as an audiobook as I really love Mindy Kaling. I love the character that she plays in the Office and I was curious to see how Mindy Kaling really was compared to the character that she plays.

I enjoyed listening to this very much. Mindy came across so well in this audiobook. She made me laugh and not want to stop playing the audio. This is the perfect audiobook if you have any kind of long commute as it will leave you wanting more and will make your drive go by so much quicker.

I loved hearing about Mindy’s life prior to the Office. I also had no idea that in addition to acting on the Office, she was also a writer for the show. This makes me want to rewatch the Office to be able to see the episodes from a new perspective.

Her life story took me surprise. While I didn’t really have any preconceived notions about her, I found that I was judging her more on her character in the Office which is definitely not who she is as a person.

I highly highly recommend this audiobook. I also went to get it as an ebook to see what the difference is like.

September 2018 ā€“ In Another Time by Caroline Leech

While this was not one of my favorite books, I always enjoy the experience that Once Upon a Book Club provides.

First, the experience.
I absolutely love reading through a book and opening up different gifts as I am reading. It is very true that it brings the experience to life. I think my favorite gift with this book, was the tea strainer. Even though I’m not a tea drinker personally, my roommate loves it!

Now, the book.
The book was well-written but I’ll be honest, I found myself wanting to fall asleep while I read it. I simply could not get into the story line. Maybe part of it was that I typically read at night, but I found myself struggling to read more than a few pages at a time. This is disconcerting to me as normally I am a voracious reader and struggle to put books down!

Maisie simply was not relatable to me. While I emphasized with her journey, I wanted to skip pages so that I would get to more exciting parts. With that being said, I am very happy with the ending.


I love Once Upon a Book Club and it is one of my favorite experiences every month.
