My name is Joana. I'm a 27 year old mother of a 7 year old girl, a 4 year old boy, and a 2 year old boy! Last year I started homeschooling my daughter and that keeps my days busy but also leaves me very little time for blogging. If you read my blog you will see that it is about 95% a book blog but I also review products for women, children, and for the home. The biggest changes in my life since I started blogging have been mostly my hair. Here are some pictures of my hair changes since last year. Yes this is just in 1 year!
Now I want to explain what kind of books I review and how I write my reviews. I mostly review fantasy, children's books, and nonfiction as long as it sounds interesting. At the top of the page of any review I will let you know how I received the book or product. Most books I review I received for free so I can review them. Some of them I bought myself and some I might have won in a book giveaway. One thing I think you should know is that I am random. I don't have a specific way I write reviews. I try to keep my reviews short and to the point without too many details about the story because I don't want to tell you the story, you have to read the book yourself for that, I just want to give you my opinion about the book! I don't write reviews for every single book I read especially if I don't like the book so because of that you won't see reviews on my blog with any book I would give less than 3 stars. My reviews are just my opinion.

Wow a lot has changed since I wrote my introduction in 2011. My name is Joana but I'm also known as alwaysjoart. I'm a 25 year old stay at home mom to three beautiful children. I have a 5 year old princess, a 2 year old prince and a baby prince born in August 2013. I'm a breastfeeding, babywearing, sometimes cloth diapering momma working on going green a little at a time. A few of my favorite things are chocolate, Starbucks, and reading. In my blog you will find a bunch of book reviews and also some product reviews and giveaways every once in a while. This year I will be reviewing mostly YA fantasy or paranormal romance and children's books. My product reviews will be mostly for children's products or products for the home and family. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and decide to follow and/or subscribe. If you have any questions you can email me at email@example.com.

Hello! My name is Joana. This is my first time doing this so I really don't know what I'm doing. I'm 23 years old and have a beautiful 3 year old daughter. I am 34 weeks pregnant with my son right now and I'm due September 15, 2011. I don't know yet what i will be writing about but I think it will mostly be about my life. I have decided to use cloth diapers with my son so hopefully that will work out the way I plan. I never even thought of using cloth diapers with my daughter because I had no idea anyone even used them anymore. Now that I'm pregnant with my second I have done a lot of research in many different parenting topics and I feel better prepared than I was with my daughter. Plus i have a little more experience now and with my daughter I didn't even know how to carry a newborn, change a diaper, or pretty much anything about taking care of a baby. Being a mother is very hard especially being a single mother. But I love my daughter and I love my son even though he isn't born yet so all the hard work is worth it. What matters the most to me is to have happy healthy children!
