POSTPONED!!! - Cirque Du Soleil's #Alegria in Houston!! - Family 4Pack Ticket Giveaway


Cirque du Soleil has return to Houston! Once again Cirque du Soleil, performing Under The Big Top at the Sam Houston Race Park brings ALEGRÍA. The show will run from February 29th- April 12th.

Alegría (‘joy’ in Spanish) takes audiences at the heart of a once glorious kingdom now in decay led by the king’s fool and a dusty aristocracy. Carried by an intangible wind of change, an emerging movement from the streets strives to shake this established order, instilling hope and renewal to bring light and harmony to their world. With its joyful spirit, Alegría is a vital, energizing force driven by a thirst for a brighter tomorrow.
In true Cirque du Soleil fashion, Alegría unfolds soul-touching clown antics and remarkable acrobatic performances in a whimsical and immersive visual universe. Perched at the top of the Big Top, gymnasts fly from one High Bar to the next, and leap into the void to reach the hands of mighty catchers suspended on a cradle swing. Using all her limbs, an artist dazzles with her ability to spin and twirl a multitude of hoops while contorting her body with otherworldly ease. Other Jaw-dropping highlights include a daredevil Fire Knife Dancer eating, breathing, touching and juggling with flames; a sublime couple on Aerial Straps soaring through a delicate snowstorm; and fourteen tumblers bouncing off a Powertrack (trampoline tracks) embedded into the stage to perform crisscrossing series of daring somersaults.

- NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Molly McAdams

-Lauren Rowe, USA TODAY & International Bestselling Author

A Falling Stars STAND-ALONE NOVEL from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author, A.L. Jackson . . .

A single mother.
An up-and-coming drummer with a sordid past.
Their paths never should have crossed.
But when a senseless crime rocks Mia West’s entire world, she agrees to spend the summer hiding out at her rock-star brother’s mansion in Savannah until the storm blows over.
What she never expected was the gorgeous, brooding drummer living in the guest house.
His darkness a lure.
His gaze a trap.
She knows better than to go after what will hurt her most.
Leif Godwin has two focuses in his life: his band, Carolina George, and seeking retribution for what was stolen from him.
Mia was never supposed to be a part of the equation.
Her eyes an appeal.
Her body a temptation.
Touching her is nothing but a sin.
But will loving her destroy them all . . .

Kiss the Stars was awesome. It has been a minute since I have read or reviewed an A.L. Jackson book so to say I was excited to get my hands on this book was a huge understatement.

I was a hugeeeeee fan of Jackson’s Bleeding Stars series so the expectations were pretty high to begin with on this book. It starts off with Mia, a single mother hiding out from a crazy hectic situation at her brother’s house until things cool off. Her brother is none other than Lyrik from Where Lightning Strikes. I freaking loved this dynamic. I loved seeing characters I have read and loved before. It’s like seeing an old friend.

Leif was very freaking mysterious and surrounded with so much suspense. I love the feelings Jackson evoked in me with this character and the emotions of Mia and Leif together. Both of them have dealt with so much but their chemistry is off the charts.

I’m rating this book 4.5 stars because it was really good and I was able to read it in one day. I loved it!  A.L. Jackson comes through once again.  I recommend all of her books and can't wait to read more!

Disney's STARGIRL Gets a Movie-Tie Edition + Giveaway

Author: Jerry Spinelli
Release Date: March 3rd 2020
Publisher: Ember

Fans of Jerry Spinelli’s beloved New York Times bestselling novel STARGIRL will soon see the story come to life with the Disney+ film adaptation, releasing on March 13 and starring America’s Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal. To celebrate this exciting movie debut, Ember is publishing a movie tie-in edition of the book, which will feature cover art from the film and will be on sale March 3, retailing at $9.99. The story, still as timely as it was 20 years ago, focuses on friendship, first love, and being true to who you are, and was hailed by the New York Times as “a poetic allegorical tale about the magnificence and rarity of true nonconformity.” It’s time for a new generation of readers to meet Stargirl. . . .

Stargirl. From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, the hallways hum with the murmur of “Stargirl, Stargirl.” She captures Leo Borlock’s heart with just one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted. At first.

Then they turn on her. Stargirl is shunned for everything that makes her different, and Leo, panicked and desperate with love, urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her: normal. In this celebration of nonconformity, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity and the thrill and inspiration of first love.

With 2.5 million copies in print, and universal themes of bullying, fitting in, and peer pressure, STARGIRL continues to be widely embraced by readers, educators, and fans of all ages. And with the movie release, this poignant and unforgettable story is sure to resonate with a whole new generation of readers.

STARGIRL was a New York Times bestseller, a Publishers Weekly bestseller, and a Book Sense national bestseller, and was named a Parents’ Choice Gold Award Winner, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, an ALA-YALSA Top Ten Best Book for Young Adults, a Book Sense Book of the Year finalist, a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year, an ABC Best Books for Children Selection, a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age, and a winner of the NAIBA Book Award for Children’s Literature.

Book Review: Just One Year by Penelope Ward

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.
On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.
(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)
I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.
So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb — the British guy from the men’s room.
And so it love - hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate - love in that order?

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.
Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.
He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.
That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.
So frustrating.
Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.
And hot.

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.
Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us — for so many reasons.
I definitely couldn't fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

the day he came back


WOWWWW!  I always go in blind for Penelope Ward books and EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I am blown away.  Just when I think HOW can she top her other books, she goes and tops it.

Just One Year was an amazing book.  I fell in love with the characters right away.  Penelope Ward always manages to create beautiful, complex characters that I would love to meet in real life. That's exactly how I felt about Teagan and Caleb.  I connected so much with Teagan's character.  I feel like I saw a lot of myself in her.  She's smart focused, and very introverted.  I think many people will relate to her.  Caleb is everything you could ask for in a hero: hot, strong, has a British accent, and swoon worthy.

I love how many emotions I felt while reading.  Based on the cover, which is everything, I thought it was going to be an easy going book.  However, this story was deep and packed full of feelings.

I am rating this book with 4.5 stars because I loved it!  It isn't my all time favorite Penelope Ward book but it definitely made it to my top list.  I was able to read this book quickly, in one day.  I recommend all Penelope Ward books!


Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of contemporary romance.
