The Good Neighbor Review + Giveaway

It’s Novel Nerd! Plus a Giveaway! Read to the end to find out how to get your own copy! Plus look for a new Book Review on Mondays.


This is the second book I am reading for BookSparks U. If you missed the first one, Big Law by Lucy Cameron, make sure you check it out!

The Good Neighbor by AJ Banner _ Zainey Laney

The Good Neighbor by A.J. Banner is classified under the suspense thriller genre. I reminded me a lot of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, but shorter. If you are a fan of the type of books that keep you guessing, this will be up your alley.

Sarah lives a perfect life as a small town writer in beautiful Washington, and is still a newlywed to Dr. Johnny. However, one night a fire reveals the dangers of living in a small town.

Like I said, this book was a really fast read both in length and how it keeps you reading. My complaint is that the characters were not written as complex and deep enough as they could have been. While I did kind of root for the heroine, I did not fall in love with the protanganist enough to want to read a sequel. However, if you are looking for a book to read for enjoyment, this is an excellent read.

The Good Neighbor is available on AMAZON in paperbakc, audible, MP3 CD, and ebook formats. Not available on Google Play at this time.

Release date: September 1

Press Summary:

Named by Harper’s Bazaar as a book that could be the next Gone Girl.

From a phenomenal new voice in suspense fiction comes a book that will forever change the way you look at the people closest to you…

Shadow Cove, Washington, is the kind of town everyone dreams about—quaint streets, lush forests, good neighbors. That’s what Sarah thinks as she settles into life with her new husband, Dr. Johnny McDonald. But all too soon she discovers an undercurrent of deception. And one October evening when Johnny is away, sudden tragedy destroys Sarah’s happiness.

Dazed and stricken with grief, she and Johnny begin to rebuild their shattered lives. As she picks up the pieces of her broken home, Sarah discovers a shocking secret that forces her to doubt everything she thought was true—about her neighbors, her friends, and even her marriage. With each stunning revelation, Sarah must ask herself, Can we ever really know the ones we love?

Review of a 30-Day Guide to Bolder Blogging + Giveaway!

I was recently given the opportunity to review a workbook designed to help bloggers retain more views. This workbook was written by Stephanie Shar of the Loudmouth Lifestyle Blog. Want to win a copy? See below!

30 Day Guide to Bolder Blogging by Stephanie Shar_ Zainey Laney

Stephanie not only does workbooks, but also e-courses designed to help your blog or business. I was interested in this because while I have a pretty nice youtube following, my blog (at least on this site) is still fairly new. Mostly research is one of those things I am doing constantly to stay ahead of the game and find new techniques.

What I liked about this workbook, is that it breaks things down into very easy steps by day. It starts from the simplest tasks (such as page content) and moves to how to maintain you blog and make a community, not just money.

Every workbook I have seen on this has a different take, and this one is no different. I just really like how honest and simple she puts this information, and how easy it is to follow. Also her emphasis is on reaching people, not just how to make money without connections.

If you are interested in purchasing this workbook, you can HERE for $9. HOWEVER, if you want to get one for free, simply comment below with your blog (or business) link and say why you need help! You can enter until Nov 8!

If you want further help with your blog, youtube, or business, consider joining our Google+ community Geeks and Beauties for support!

Until Next Time,

Frosting Company New Fall Products Part 1 + Giveaway and Discount Code!

Frosting Company is coming out with some pretty awesome and amazing new scents and products for the fall. I am really excited for it! I did want to share a few products they sent me to try out as well as a giveaway they have going on Instagram!

Frosting Company makes natural and good for your products with no parabens or pthalates. Brittany and Gabrielle who founded the company are such positive and amazing people. You can see a review of their products below for more information:

And now for the products:

Frosting Company Fall Sneak Peak _ Zainey Laney

These are a few of their new products for the fall. Their Coconut Bath Fizzie smells delicious and looks like a cut open coconut. It is only available for the month of September so make sure your try it! Recently I have been a little obsessed with their Watermelon Lip Scrub. I love the concept of the scrub and the tin is so portable. They are not available on their site yet, but they are sure to be a hit! Lastly, they have a Frosting Bath Fizzie Celebration Cake. This not only looks like a slice of cake but smells divine! This would be perfect for a party favor or birthday!

Some other products to note:

  • The Southern Peach Body Butter Frosting is 50% off right now, probably because it is being phased out for new products. The scent on this one is amazing and Body Frostings are definitely one of my favorite items. They are made with shea butter and very moisturizing.
  • There are a ton of new items on the site, but if you want to see those, you have to wait for Part 2! (can you say Pumpkin Spice?????)

You can get 10% off your order using the code SHOPLANEY. Also you can stack it with a code to get you free shipping on orders $40 or more with the code FREESHIP40. Honestly this is a great time to do some early holiday shopping.

Now for the Giveaway!

Brittany and Gabrielle are giving away the products you see below to celebrate the company’s 1st birthday. These were picked out by some of us who are Frosting Belles as our favorite products (mine is the Raspberry Vanilla Body Pop).

Adult Underoos Review and Giveaway!

Recently I was given the opportunity to review the new Adult size Underoos! I barely remember the last time I wore superhero underwear, and being a lady in my 30s, I never thought I would again. BUT being a geek, well why not?

Batgirl Underoos Set _ Zainey Laney

I selected the Batgirl Underoos because I liked the colors and my husband loves Batman. There are quite a few designs for both men and women (I also had my eye on the C3PO set). What I do like is that they come in Plus sizes (up to XXL, even though it is marked as juniors) so that means that plus size geeks like me can fit into them!


They are made of soft cotton and the legs to the briefs do not pinch when you wear them. Here is a closer look at the tank top.

Batgirl Tank _ Zainey Laney

See how soft it looks? The top is slim fit so it is a little tight but you are wearing them under your clothes (theoretically) so I don’t mind that.


Here is some information from Underoos!

Sizing & Pricing

  • Each men’s Underoos set ($24.99) includes an undershirt and briefs in men’s sizes up to XXL.
  • Juniors sets ($24.99) include a tank and panties in sizes that fit up to a women’s XXL/16.
  • Youth sets ($19.99) are available in sizes XS (4) through M (8).

New Exclusives Coming In August!

In addition to our already launched re-releases of classic Underoos designs, we’ve got some fun new sets coming out in August: Aquaman, Batman 66 Adam West, and Star Wars Wicket Ewok, to name just a few!

Find Us on Social Media

Follow us on Twitter at @underoosbrand, where we do Free Pair Fridays and other fun giveaways. Show us your #underoos on Instagram by donning your fave Underoos @originalunderoos – and we’re all ears if you want to suggest a new character to Underoos-ize!



Isn’t this fun? So basically there are 2 ways to get your hands on a pair.

Second, I can give some away. Use the link below and enter to win your own pair. US Only, must be 18 or older, ends 08/24.

Ziraki Top-Loading Yoga Mat Bag and Giveaway


This bag is not what I expected it to be. However is very fashionable. I love the pattern (i got the blue one) and it has little flowers on it.

The material itself is terry cloth but very durable and easy to clean. The straps are strong and I have no issues with it curling up or feeling unstable.

The zipper is easy to open but does not feel like it will break or anything. It is roomy, and I can fit my yoga mat and a yoga towel in it with no problem whatsoever. I love that something this affordable does it’s job so well. After using it for a few days, I can honestly say that this bag is going to be used a lot.

Take a look at all the cute designs they have! Looking stylish walking into yoga for sure!




I am doing a giveaway for this product that will last 1 week. Please enter in the widget below.

– You must live in the United States.
