Off to Alaska with a Pile of Books – My September 2021 Wrap Up!

Posted October 4, 2021 in Checking In // 2 Comments

Bonjour mes chers. September went by awfully quickly, didn’t it? Why is it that autumn months always fly by, but the summer and winter ones drag on forever? Regardless, I’ve been grateful for the beautiful weather here in New England and for the slowly changing scenery.  I love autumn so much and October is my favorite of all months (and, no, not just because of my birthday) so I’m absolutely thrilled to be rolling into the heart of autumn. September was a busy/good month personally and I am excited to share a little bit about it with you! I feel […]

Dear Greece, You Have My Heart – My July Wrap Up

Dear Greece, You Have My Heart – My July Wrap Up

Posted August 4, 2021 in Checking In // 0 Comments

When this post drops, I’ll be back from Greece, but only just.  With any luck we’ve stayed awake just long enough to bribe the cats into loving us again, then gone straight to bed for the day before heading back to work tomorrow.  Travel days are the longest, but they are still lovely, because I am grateful for any adventure. This post is going to be short and sweet, a lighter wrap up while I recover from vacation. Thank you loves, and I’m excited to tell you a bit more about the trip starting on August 20th. All the things […]

I am a HUGE audiobook listener – more than 2/3 of my reading the last two years has been via audiobooks.  So color me surprised when I went to review my “read by” section of my review archive, only to discover that I’ve only listened to a handful of narrators a couple times.  This post was supposed to be about ten amazing narrators, but instead, I’m giving you something else. One of the audiobook pain points that came up for the post a couple weeks ago was that a bad narrator ruins a book.  I am 100% on board with this […]

January Wrap Up: ALL the Books Hauled, a Little Editing, and New Year Blues <3

I set out into 2019 with the intention to slay my reading list, and I feel like I’m at a really good spot!  I think I’m finally settling back in after destroying myself in November.  The blogs fairly well scheduled ahead, and I’m reading my ARCs more or less as I get them. Things in my blogging and bookish world are good, y’all?  I really hope this is an omen for the rest of the year. OKAY SO. Remember how in my 2019 Blogging Goals post, I spoke about how I was instituting a book buying ban on myself for 2019? Well […]

I know I usually say “wow that month went by so fast”, but seriously, y’all, July?  July was a long long month.  I struggled to balance reading with writing with blogging with life with health stuff and sunshine and just everything and I am ready for autumn.  This is how you know I’m a New Englander – I’m ready for fall now. Yes? Yes. July wasn’t so bad – just busy!  I don’t like to be busy – I love me some weekends to sit at home and relish in doing nothing.  It’s the best.  August is gonna be busy too, […]
