Have you guys heard about this “Great American Read” television show?  If you use the Goodreads web platform, it’s difficult to miss – the ad has been plastered all over mine for a couple months. There’s a lot of interesting books on this list, although I can’t imagine choosing just one book for an entire country.  PBS came up with 100 books for this competition, a mixture of popular modern reads and timeless classics.  I’ve read 37, how many have you read? 1984 by George Orwell ✓ A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole X A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving X A Separate […]

You know how I talk about Jurassic Park all the time?  I think the book is super underrated in a world that is obsessed with the film franchise.  Well, imagine my glee when I stumbled across the tag on Port Jericho all about books and Jurassic Park/Jurassic World.  Um, sold!

Pick a book that fits each quote theme. Have fun! Tag 3 […]

Besides, I’m all about bragging about the really long books I’ve read. For the purposes of keeping this interesting, I’m […]

Braggable Books (And Other Times When Readers Can Be A Bit Pretentious).

Instead of focusing on books for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by the fabulous Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl), I want to focus on us readers. I have been told by non-readers that sometimes, when I talk about my reading… I come off as a bit pretentious.  Has anyone else ever had this problem?  When we genuinely love what we do and the books we read, but sometimes blur the line between excited sharing and being a bit of a snob?

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. The Monthly Haul 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 […]
