Short Hiatus Announcement

Short Hiatus Announcement

Hello friends! I have officially been book blogging for about a month now, and I already need to take a little hiatus. A part of me is happy because not that many people really know I’m here yet anyway, but a part of me is […]

Educated: A riveting, courageous memoir.

Educated: A riveting, courageous memoir.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own. I was going to schedule this post to come out a little closer to the publication date since I’ll be traveling at that […]

The week where I decide to try some books I’m sure I won’t like.

The week where I decide to try some books I’m sure I won’t like.

Book blogging has opened my eyes – opened my eyes to what a curmudgeon I am! I’ve only been doing this for a few weeks, and I’m seeing all these books that I have never heard of or considered before. Why? Because I don’t like […]

Lucky Boy: Immigration, adoption, motherhood, and what makes risks worth taking – you know, light reading.

Lucky Boy: Immigration, adoption, motherhood, and what makes risks worth taking – you know, light reading.

Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran only recently came on my radar. I typically let things languish a tad longer on my TBR, but it’s the February pick for the Mom Advice Book Club, a group that I’m a part of on Facebook. At 472 pages, I […]

Meditations on death, survivalist Mormons, and the book that’s ripping my heart out.

Meditations on death, survivalist Mormons, and the book that’s ripping my heart out.

Hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date I’m coming to the realization that this might be the first year that I “read” more audio books than Kindle books (let’s not even mention actual paper books, that ship sailed long ago). I’m just so busy! I […]

The week of the novella, poetry, and learning how frighteningly human doctors are.

The week of the novella, poetry, and learning how frighteningly human doctors are.

This past week I’ve read quite a few little bite-sized books that pack a big punch, and also dabbled in more poetry than I usually do. Actually, let me stop right here and recommend the practice of reading a bunch of little books! There’s nothing […]

Bird Box: Unseen Fears are the Greatest Fears

Bird Box: Unseen Fears are the Greatest Fears

It took me a couple days to catch my breath after this one. Yes, I just read another horror book even though I said that I almost never read horror. In all honesty, I didn’t think I would actually finish this book. I thought I’d […]

I’m on a horror spree!

I’m on a horror spree!

Since I have decided to start writing about what I read so that I can read better, I’ve realized that the process of setting up a a blog in order to do this writing can really distract one from the main point, which is reading. […]

Quitting my Goodreads reading challenge, and what else I’m saying NO and YES to for 2018 reading.

Quitting my Goodreads reading challenge, and what else I’m saying NO and YES to for 2018 reading.

I can’t believe I did it, but I actually just canceled my Goodreads reading challenge. I already was sort of skittish of reading challenges in general (you’re not the boss of me, reading challenges!), but I always participated in the simple numbers challenge in Goodreads […]

The Boy on the Bridge: One of the good zombie books!

The Boy on the Bridge: One of the good zombie books!

  “You have a life and then it ends and you’re dead. Living it is the point, not proving to other people that you were there.” I have very little experience with the horror genre. In fact, as far as I can recall, the only […]
