Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

I really, really wanted to do a review on this book.  But I've been so busy, that I think I waited too long since I read it and I don't remember everything from the book.
I do, however, know that it was WAY better than the last book, Dead in the Family.  That book was so disappointing to me.
I've heard that there are only 2 more books after this one, so that is a little sad.  I've been reading these for so long and I don't want them to stop!
Anyway, back to Dead Reckoning.  A lot happened in this book!  I can't remember detail, but I know it's a lot similar and different to the show.  I feel like the show mirrors off the books in an opposite way.  (I'm sure that sentence makes no sense whatsoever, haha.)  What I mean is, in the book's Pam was not allowed to make a child as opposed to in the show she made one even though she didn't really want to.  Just little things like that.
So since I can't really remember details of the book, I'm sure this was the worst review ever written.  All I have to say is that this was way better than Dead in the Family, and I am very pleased with it since I was expecting the books to go downhill after reading that.

Salmonier Nature Park

Last weekend we went to Salmonier Nature Park!  There wasn't really much to see there.  I think we went there at a bad time of day, but it was still a bit of fun!  We got to see a couple of animals.

This was just a random squirrel we saw on the way in to the park!

June Glossybox

I've been way too busy lately! I completely skipped May's Glossybox. I had meant to write a post about it but I never had time, and then my June Glossybox arrived. I was really pleased with this one, most of the products I received are items I use the most. So let's get to it!

Biore Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser - 200 mL/$9.99
Haven't tried this yet because I am halfway through my last bottle of proactive, but I really like most Biore products so I'm sure I'll love this!

Cover Girl Flipstick - Blendable lip duo - 3.8 gr/$12.50
I loved the colour of this lipstick, but I ended up giving this one to my Mom because she's been looking for a new colour to wear, haha.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF 55 - 88 mL/$15.99
I'm actually not done using my bottle of this stuff, but this sample size will be good to carry in my purse!

Venus Embrace Razor - 1 kit/$13.43
LOVE Venus Razors. My favourite is the spa breeze because it makes it fast and easy to shave in the mornings, but I like to use embrace when I'm not in such a rush.

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips - 8/$9.99
I really like these, I use them once every couple of weeks and they work wonderfully!

Wella Professionals Ocean Spiritz - 150 mL/$16.99
I'm not sure how this is supposed to work... but it seems like it's just hair spray to me. I've used it a few times when I wanted wavy hair but it didn't do anything spectacular to my hair, it just looked the way it normally does when I a wavy look!

Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex - 50 mL/$30.99
I haven't used this yet. I was thinking about giving it to my Mom also, but I may keep it for myself! I haven't decided yet.

:) Have a fantastic day!
