The StoryGraph Tag

Hello everyone! As you may have heard, I’m a big fan of The StoryGraph.  I love their clean design, their statistics and other various tracking resources, and their customer service.  I also really like that they are not owned and operated by Amazon!  But I digress. Here in the book community, we love book tags.  And it occurred to me… we really need a tag for this new site!  There are so many cool features and the fact that it’s literally designed to help people find new reads is screaming for a tag… because a lot of the time, book […]

Anyone Hungry? How About a BURRITO BOOK TAG?

Anyone Hungry? How About a BURRITO BOOK TAG?

Posted May 1, 2020 in Tags // 6 Comments

Do you guys every just go out hunting for fun book tags? I do.  I like to do the ones trending the community, I really do, but also?  It takes me so long to get to them that trying to keep in the trending curves feels a little pointless for me.  After all, I just did the #NowWeRise Book Tag, and that one was inspired by the release of Children of Blood and Bone.  So yeah, I got to that several months after the sequel was released.  I will never be on-trend, haha, but I’m okay with that! I found today’s book […]

My 10 Favorite New Authors of 2018 (& 2018 Debut Author Challenge Review!)

Last year, I participated in That Artsy Reader Girl’s 2018 Debut Authors Challenge.  This is a challenge Jana has been running for a few years now, though you probably know her better from Top Ten Tuesday!  The Debut Author Challenge is intended to encourage readers to reach out and support new and upcoming authors.  I’ve got to be honest, without this challenge, I most likely would have missed out of some of my favorite books of 2018. As a twist on today’s Top Ten Tuesday, I wanted to talk a little about my Top Ten New Authors from 2018 that […]

So Long to Apple Cider & Autumn Leaves: The October Wrap Up

So Long to Apple Cider & Autumn Leaves: The October Wrap Up

Posted October 29, 2018 in Checking In // 4 Comments

October is my favorite month of the year.  Between the spooky Halloween aesthetics, nutmeg and clove in the air, and beautiful leaves… it’s the most gorgeous month of the year in New England.  Add in the fact that it’s no longer 90-degrees with 100% humidity and that my birthday is in October, this is just generally a good month.  And while I’m sad to see it go, I’m excited to see what November will bring. Without further ado, I present: October. The Monthly Haul Remember last month when I only hauled two books?  Yeah, that was adorable.  The beginning of October […]

Weekly Tea Time for the Soul #5: Where? BACK TO THE FUTURE.

Weekly Tea Time for the Soul #5: Where? BACK TO THE FUTURE.

Posted October 21, 2018 in Weekly Tea Time for My Soul // 14 Comments

Today is October 21st. It is tradition, in our little household, that on October 21st we watch Back to the Future.  All three of them.  I grew up on these films and so did my husband – we both love them.  The tradition started on October 21st, 2015.  It’s the date, in the second movie, when they went back to the future.  Now we just sort of keep it up, because traditions are fun. It’s been an alright week.  I’ve read four books out of my TBR Jar since the last time I updated – three for the Off the Grid […]
