What I Read in January

With the end of January in sight, I though it was time for me to share the books I’ve been reading this month.

October Update

I didn’t want to let the month of October slip away without posting anything to the blog, so here’s a quick update to let you know what’s been happening over the last few weeks. Just like last year, October has been a crazy month. It started out with Homecoming festivities at work, and it hasn’t […]

12 Months of Books: August Suggestions

This month’s theme for our 12-month reading challenge is “Lazy Days,” but for me the month of August is anything but lazy! I picked this theme to focus in on one of my new favorite ways of discovering great stories: audiobooks. With school starting back, there’s no way I’ll be able to read as many […]

Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

I’ve said often on the blog that I’m not always one to jump in on new releases or contemporary fiction trends. I usually prefer to wait until a book’s been around for a while before I decide if I want to read it. But when Circe by Madeline Miller debuted in April, the cover alone caught […]

Happy Friday! After a long, long delay, I’ve finally gotten around to sharing my suggestions for May’s reading challenge.

These stories, while spanning great distances in geography and time, all feel like parts of a larger work, a […]

Two Spooky Stories

We’re snowed in again, which means I’ve been able to spend more time than normal reading, and I’m not complaining! That’s why today’s book review is actually two in one. I finished both of these books this week, and since they have some similarities, I thought I’d share them with you in one post. The […]

Quiet by Susan Cain

Follow my blog with Bloglovin It might be too early to say this, but 2018 has been a pretty great year for books. I’ve read two so far, and both of them have earned a five star rating. That’s rare–I have to be completely in love with a book for it to earn that type […]
