Once Upon A Book Club is Getting Me Ready for Back-to-School this Fall

I love Once Upon a Book Club! I’ve been reading with this company for approximately three years. The books are always so intriguing and worth the time. I love the presents I receive with each book, as well. I love reading, after all, I am a teacher! So, I try to read as much as I can, and stay up to date with life, so that I can talk to my students about it daily. So, the book above, is the one I read this month. It’s such a wonderful book, and the prizes are so cool too. That’s right, I said “prizes”. You get wrapped gifts, and it tells you when to open each one. The prizes go with a corresponding paragraph on the page. They are always so surprising though. I’m never expecting it to be what it is. I’ve always enjoyed reading, but these books are special because of the motivation behind the reading. Even if you don’t like to read, you’ll really enjoy doing it with a goal on certain pages. There’s always at least 4 gifts. Sometimes there can be a couple more, depending on the book. There are subscriptions for Adults, Young Adults, and…

The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book Review
2022 Holiday Gift Guide / November 11, 2022

I received The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book the other day, and I have to say, these recipes are delightful.  My 25-year-old, daughter, is thrilled with this book.  She loves Harry Potter, and though the book is “Unofficial”, she is absolutely delighted to have been able to try these recipes. What better way to celebrate your love of Hogwarts and its host of beloved characters than by bringing out your potions cauldron (or cocktail shaker) and mixing up a host of spectacular cocktails? Raise a toast in true wizarding world style with cocktails including:  Golden Poptail Balls  Headmaster’s Lemon Drop Mad-Eye Lychee Martini  Tea Leaf-Reading Earl Grey Cocktail  Boozy Knickerbocker Glory Christmas Party Punch And many more!  Chapter 1 of The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book tells you about the types of Glassware, and what you really need.  Then, Chapter 2, starts the amazing recipes.  This book has fan-filled recipes, and you’ll be drinking great cocktails for a long time.  I love this book, too.

Once Upon A Book Club is Fabulous
2022 Fall Gift Guide / October 2, 2022

My 25-year-old, daughter, loves Once Upon A Book Club.  She’s been using them for some time.  She loves that on different pages, there’s a present.  She loves reading, as well.  So, she reads to the certain page, the first present was page 13, I believe, then she opens her present where it tells her to.  The present is always something to do with the storyline. So, what’s included?  A book, with an amazing story; presents, between 3-5; and much more.  The presents have been excellent, Sarah agrees.  This is the best Subscription Box we’ve found, dealing with books.  You get a wonderful book, and gifts to go with it.  The more you read, the better the gifts get. Sarah said she wants this Subscription Box for Christmas.  You know, a continued, monthly box.  Which is a great idea for anyone, but a teacher; it’s a wonderful idea.  She teaches at an alternative school, and this is a great surprise for her to come home to.  It’s not expensive, and worth it!  It’s just $49 a month, and shipping is free.  You can’t beat that price.

SAFE Method Promotes Peace, Empowerment After Trauma
2022 Fall Gift Guide / September 8, 2022

Princeton, NJ, September 7, 2022 — Surviving sexual assault, attempted suicide and an arranged marriage is one thing. Processing all of that pain and living a full life proved to be something entirely different for speaker and author Poonam Bhuchar. “In the shadows of emotional pain, survival can take priority over healing,” Bhuchar said. “Lasting reverberations of traumatic experiences can cripple decision-making skills, creep into relationships and leave scars on the people you love.” Eventually, Bhuchar’s emotional trauma also took a physical toll. She suffered two strokes and temporary paralysis before beginning her long journey toward authentic healing. Today, she shares her powerful story through speaking engagements and her book, SAFE From the Pain: Out of the Darkness Into a Life That’s Free, Happy, and Good. Part memoir, part self-help revelation, SAFE From the Pain pairs Bhuchar’s inspiring story with the SAFE Method, which aims to help readers process emotional pain in healthy, productive ways so they can lead more fulfilling personal and professional lives. In SAFE From the Pain, readers will learn: – The four-step SAFE Method for working through emotions and regaining control. – The impact that stress from emotional pain has on every aspect of life — including the workplace. – How…
