    The restaurant looks cool. Who knows when I’ll ever be in Florida again but I’ll be remembering that! 😉
    And the serial is interesting, thanks for sharing it!

      You’re welcome. I hope to travel to Florida one of these days, and that will be on my list to see for sure! Thanks for stopping by!

    Okay, don’t enter me for the cards giveaway because I have some, but my favorite card game is probably a toss-up between Egyptian Rat Race or the ever infamous spoons… 😉

    Ooh! Lots of cool books and bookish things! Thanks for another link fest.
    I love that there are Nalu playing cards. Themed cards are so fun. ^-^ My favorite game is, and has been since childhood, Clue. I really like Settlers of Catan as well but Clue is my favorite.

    • J.L. Mbewe

      Hi Georgina! I love Clue too! I just recently discovered Settlers of Catan, and I enjoy it a lot! Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh my steampunk! I might be going to Universal this summer … I should see when they’re opening since the article doesn’t mention that,

    I’m totally in love with A Daring Sacrifice’s cover! That purple in her gown with her red hair? G.o.r.g.e.o.u.s.

    My fave card game has always been UNO. 😉

    • J.L. Mbewe

      Oh my that would be so cool! Florida is a bit of ways from Texas, though. Bummer. Ha! We plan to go to Universal Studios one of these days!
      And UNO, oh yes, I had pack that went with me to Perú and back. Definitely enjoy the game, actually, I love any game. Ha! Thanks for stopping by!
