I’ve been in a tiny reading slump lately. I’m still close to my monthly goal to hit my 2018 reading goal, but every week I get one book further away from my goal. It seems silly to make strict reading goals like that, but when you own as many books as I do, you’ve gotta work to get through them! Instead of feeling discourage, I decided to try and make a TBR stack. Continue reading “My April 2018 TBR Stack”
Graduation season is quickly approaching, we thought it would be good to talk about the book (or books!) by female authors that we’d give to students graduating high school. I’ve decided for this prompt I’m going to do part book review and part graduation gift. Continue reading “#BookishBloggersUnite – Books for Seniors by Women Authors”
I’ve thought about this post for a long time and knew I wanted to spend some time talking about my discovery of used books. Would I talk about the stores? Would I recall the fever dream I had where I magically ordered $150 of used books and received 16 books after a few weeks I forgot about? No. This post comes from an unlikely source: my current research and discovery into my spirituality. Continue reading “A Love Letter to Used Books and the People Who Read Them”
I’m so excited that it’s FRIDAY and the weekend is here! Not only does that mean I can stay up and read late, but it also means that #BookishBloggersUnite is going on today. The fabulous Sue at Doddy About Books is hosting this week and she wanted to celebrate Women’s History Month so we’re talking about our favorite female authors by genre. If you want to participate, don’t forget to add the link to your post by clicking the button at the bottom of Sue’s post. My post is being done with a little twist… Continue reading “#BookishBloggersUnite – Kicking Off US Women’s History Month”
I had a stinkin’ awful, no good, rotten February. Maybe it was the shortened month so I had less days at work. Possibly it was the books I read being too serious or just flat-out bad. Maybe it was my mail getting placed in the wrong box and all my packages being sent back and experiencing bad customer service from my subscription box (bye Book of the Month. It was nice knowing you). I’m glad it’s behind me and so I’d like to focus on the positive: my favorite books of February 2018. Continue reading “Favorite Books of February 2018”
Happy Friday everyone! I’m happy to share the first post for Bookish Bloggers Unite. Bookish Bloggers Unite was formed when a group of like-minded writers decided they wanted to talk about books together. We hope you’ll join us!
Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of novels about family dynamics and the drama that ensures when people who are different are forced together because they’re family. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng fits perfectly in that niche. There’s family, a surprise visitor in town, tradition, and (quite literally) little fires everywhere.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I’m not much of a romance reader overall so writing something that’s Valentine’s Day themed would hard to do. Instead, I would like to talk about some of my favorite black female authors in honor of Black History Month. Continue reading “Black Female Authors I Love”
I received this book as a galley from the publisher and it in no way influences my review. In fact, I really wanted to enjoy The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. Unfortunately, after a few days to sit with this book and think about it, I still feel tepid at best towards it. Continue reading “The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin”
