Here at Sweet Southern Savings, we love hot cocoa, Mexico, celebrations. And, Cinco de Mayo is always a day of fun, ethnic food, drinks, and festivities. While I'm not fluent in Spanish or Mexican traditions, my sweetheart is. So, I often look to him to interpret and explain their culture and celebrations to me. Cinco de Mayo literally means May 5th in Spanish. It commemorates the victory of the Mexican army against French forces during the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, and is celebrated more in the U.S. than in Mexico. Visit this Planning a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta? post for more about this day, some great Cinco de Mayo printables, and fiesta ideas. Plus, don't miss all the great Mexican recipes we've compiled for you on the linky.

We also love Mexican Chocolate. Mexican chocolates are known for the different spices like cinnamon and chilies that are added to them to create intense tastes. Those flavors make Brooklyn Bean Roastery's gourmet Mexican Hot Chocolate, unlike anything you've tasted before. It's Sweet! It's Spicy! It's Delicioso!

After a temperamental meltdown on stage, Sean Hightower, a regretful and resentful “one-hit wonder” rock musician hoping for a comeback, returns to his girlfriend’s condo seeking comfort from the woman he loves. But after letting himself in, he discovers her naked body on the bed, murdered from a bullet to the head.

The Scorpion's Lullaby
Luminous Lands Book 1
by Juliet Vane
Genre: YA Fantasy

Be ruthless. Be rich. Live like gods.


Joella’s band of thieves lives deep in the jungle. Riding on giant scorpion dragons, they search the beautiful landscape for villages and caravans to rob.

But dangerous mists thread through the jungle’s undergrowth. One touch transforms its victims into mindless, murderous shells of their former selves.

When the mists interrupt a routine raid, Joella becomes separated from her people. She’s alone except for a stolen book of legends and Marc, a religious disciple dedicated to pacifism and preserving the ways of the old goddess.

Searching for their tribes, Joella and Marc brave mist-infected beasts, deceitful clans, and the sweltering days and freezing nights of their beloved jungle.

An uneasy alliance grows between them as they read from the book and uncover in its pages the truth of why the jungle has been fraught with evil. They must trust each other to right the wrongs of the past and save themselves, or risk the very landscape they hold so dear.

The Scorpion’s Lullaby is a fast-paced, lyrical fantasy filled with creatures and characters who will take your breath away.
