Book Review: Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice

Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice is a young adult horror novel originally published in April 1997.  Marnie and her cousin Peter drive up to the mansion that Marnie's father rented for the summer ahead of her father.  When the cousins arrive at the mansion called Stonycraig and settle in, Marnie is nervous because she thought she saw a shadow in one of the windows.  Then, she starts hearing a woman crying late at night.  Are the stories about Stonycraig being haunted true? This is a book I originally read as a teenager, and I remember being impressed by the storyline and writing.  I recently decided to reread it as an adult to see if it was as good as I remembered.  I have to say it was phenomenal.  Well-written and unputdownable.   Even though there were parts that came back to me as I made my way through Music From The Dead , I still found it to be perfectly eerie and creepy.  There was even a little bit of romance but nothing inappropriate for a tween or teen.  The only com

Product Review: Chloé Eau de Toilette Rose Tangerine

When I heard that I would be receiving a VoxBox from, I was excited to be testing another product. I recently received my product . . . Chloé Eau de Toilette Rose Tangerine, which I received for free in exchange for my honest review of the product. I never really know if I'm going to receive a sample size or a full size product, but in this case, I received a sample size.

Normally, I wear Giorgio Women by Giorgio Beverly Hills Perfume for Women, so I was excited to try out a new perfume to see if I might have an alternate scent to wear and because I do love the scent of roses and tangerine. In testing Chloé Eau de Toilette Rose Tangerine, there were things that I liked and things I didn't like.

Let's begin with the pluses. It's a very light scent that actually complemented me well. Usually when I try out new scents, I never get any complements on it, but with Chloé Eau de Toilette Rose Tangerine, I received positive reactions. My mom liked how it smelled so much that she wanted to try it out.

The negatives for me are that when I first sprayed Chloé Eau de Toilette Rose Tangerine on me, it was very strong smelling. With that being said, it did settle down a lot and ended up being very subtle, but it took about 30 minutes for it to do that. The other down side was that whenever I sprayed the perfume, it gave me a small headache, which thankfully went away after a brief amount of time. I was expecting to smell hints of the tangerine in Chloé Eau de Toilette Rose Tangerine, but all I smelled was the rose, which was a little disappointing because I wanted at least a subtle hint of citrus.

All in all, I was very pleased with Chloé Eau de Toilette Rose Tangerine, and I give it four out of five stars. I definitely would recommend this product to anyone who likes the scent of rose but not to those who are expecting a citrus scent because you'd likely be disappointed.
