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?

Product Review: Vital Proteins & Jennifer Aniston, Peanut Butter Fudge

Product Review Vital Proteins and Jennifer Aniston, Peanut Butter Fudge
A while back, I received a Vox Box from Influenster for free in exchange for my honest review.  The package contained three different flavored protein bars that are in the Vital Proteins & Jennifer Aniston line.  One of the flavors I received is Peanut Butter Fudge.

Of all the flavors I received, the Peanut Butter Fudge bar is the one I was most excited to try, and I thought that this would be one of my favorites flavors.  However, I was disappointed in it.  It tasted very artificial, and I didn't care for the texture because it was a little waxy.  With that being said, it has less than one gram of sugar and fourteen grams of protein making it a great snack prior to lifting weights.

Two out of five stars is what I give the Peanut Butter Fudge flavor of Vital Proteins & Jennifer Anniston protein bar.  I'd be willing to give it another try.
