A Dream of Adventure and Avolea

A Dream of Adventure and Avolea

My loves, I open today with a quote: “Once and again, I stray down and listen to the duet of the brook and wind, and watch the sunbeams creeping through the dark boughs, the gossamers glimmering here and there, and the ferns growing up in the shadowy nooks.”   Lucy Maud Montgomery was in love with her island home.  The sighs in the orchard and the gloriousness of summer peeking over green hills blossoms to life in her books.  The above excerpt from her journal is enough to take your breath away with only a hint of imagination required. I […]

Mid-Year Freak Out Tag! (2018)

Mid-Year Freak Out Tag! (2018)

I really wanted to do this tag last year, and it just didn’t work out with my posting schedule.  This year, I bookmarked the tag from the lovely Lia @ Lost in a Story and I am ready to DO THIS THING. ARE YOU READY TO FREAK OUT?! The Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2018 Gosh this one is hard.  I’ve read a lot of really fantastic books so far this year and it’s so hard to pick JUST ONE.  I think I have to go with Tess of the Road, because it’s the one that spoke to me […]

April Wrap Up // Anne Shirley, Adventures, and All That Jazz.

Since I just got back from my European adventures Saturday night, this is going to be short and sweet because my loves, I am back to work today and I need to majorly get back into work mode.  Trust me, I am 100% still soaking at Blue Lagoon. In spirit. I meant to tone it down with April’s haul, but, haha, I am hilarious.  I found SALES at Barnes & Noble!  I am hopeless. Y’all should see the condition of my bookcase.  It’s a mess.                  So OF COURSE after Anne of the Island, I HAD to get the […]

Anne of the Island by L. M. Montgomery

Anne of the Island by L. M. Montgomery

My heart is so thoroughly tied to Anne of Green Gables, I did not think I could fall any deeper in love. I was so deliciously wrong. Anne of the Island was like finding a piece of my soul tucked away in a a novel.  Anne has always been a kindred spirit, but it still surprises and delights that a novel written a century ago can tug so sweetly at my heart.  I grew up with Anne’s story, but did not indulge in the books until recently.  When I read Anne of Green Gables, I forced myself to be patient as I waited […]

Long Weekends & Ready Player One

Long Weekends & Ready Player One

Good morning my lovelies, and happy Easter! Whether you’re at Easter Mass, on an egg hunt, or doing positively nothing at all, I hope you have a delightful day! I have had a most amazingly productive book week for the first time in ages, which was a lovely change.  Finished three books this week, all of which have been fairly long-running for me, and all of which I enjoyed.  You should be seeing reviews pop up for The Magicians, Gone With the Wind, and Wizard and Glass throughout the next couple weeks!   Of course, this also means I started new books!  Matt […]
