July is gone, and I’m posting this today so I can focus on Harry Potter’s birthday tomorrow.  I swear, I’m not a Harry Potter nerd. LIES! #Ravenclaw4Life I’ve had mixed feelings about this month’s books.  There’ve been a couple of DNFs, but on the other hand there were books that I really loved!  It was a high/low month and nothing inbetween. THE JULY HAUL I had a good run at Barnes & Noble earlier in the month, and I’m beginning to clear out my audible credits as well. JULY READS WRITING LIFE In a touch of insanity, I decided to […]

It’s Monday, What are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date.  It’s a great way to catch up on all the literary ins-and-outs of the previous week, and see what everyone is up to.  Check out this week’s linkup! It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these!  My entry “Confessions” pretty much sums up my absence this time…. I do apologize, for anyone reading, mais voila!  Here I am again! I’ve actually had a very productive week as I’ve delved back into my audiobooks and finished an ARC I won back in January (*guilt*).  The highlight of my […]

It’s Monday, What are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date.  It’s a great way to catch up on all the literary ins-and-outs of the previous week, and see what everyone is up to.  Check out this week’s linkup! It’s been a good/bad reading week. I finished off both The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo early last week.  Those were good. Still trudging through Myth in Human History by The Great Courses – the next lecture is about the myth surrounding Isis and Osiris, which is one of the few Egyptian myths I know so […]

It’s Monday, What are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date.  It’s a great way to catch up on all the literary ins-and-outs of the previous week, and see what everyone is up to.  Check out this week’s linkup! Oh. My. Goodness. Lets start with the little ones this week, shall we? In Myth in Human History by the Great Courses we’ve moved out of creation myths and covered flood myths and myths of the gods.  The next several lessons are about goddesses. My favorite myth this week was Asian one (I’m sorry, I don’t recall the exact culture) about a brother […]

It’s Monday, What are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date.  It’s a great way to catch up on all the literary ins-and-outs of the previous week, and see what everyone is up to.  Check out this week’s linkup! Happy Monday y’all! I finished up The Ocean at the End of the Lane mid-last week!  It was a good, quick listen although it definitely doesn’t rank super high in my personal lists; Neil Gaiman’s imagination continues to be excellent but his writing style continues to require some effort on my part.  But that’s okay! He has plenty of fans. With […]
