Anti-Valentines Day Book Tag

Posted February 5, 2019 in Tags // 5 Comments

Lots of people love Valentines Day.  They love the chocolate candies and fluttering candles and dew drop roses.  They love the batting eyelashes and sultry hushed voices over red wine.  I am so, so happy for those people… but I’ve never really been a Valentines Day person. Don’t get me wrong.  I will always accept chocolate.  But there’s a lot of pressure on this holiday on romantic gestures, and I just don’t want my relationship with my husband to hinge on that sort of pressure.  Neither of us are romantics, so both Valentines and our anniversary pass with a shrug […]

2018: My Year In Books

2018: My Year In Books

Posted January 1, 2019 in Bookish Things // 9 Comments

Annual round up time!  I like this time of year because it’s like this amazing gallery of all the different worlds I’ve visited and the people I’ve meant.  Okay, so granted, all these people and places are fictional, but books are still the sort of thing that make me happy, so taking a brief revisit is always fun. As I predicted last year, 2018 was so much better than 2017 in regards to my personal life, travel, reading, everything!  I’m so grateful for this upturn, and I’m sure 2019 will bring whole new slew of joy and surprises.  I started my […]

Ten Books I Wish More People Were Talking About

Ten Books I Wish More People Were Talking About

I love to shout about the books I love. You may have noticed that pattern among book bloggers – you may love to do it yourself.  Some books – like The Night Circus or Ready Player One – everyone is talking about.  But then, there are books you think were fantastic, but people just aren’t talking about them as much as you think they deserve. For me, this encompasses most the books on my shelf.  If I own it, I probably love it, and want to talk about it.  How about you?  Here are some books I la-la-love, that I wish got more […]

Five Amazing Books I Was Lucky Enough Receive as ARCs (& You Should Read!)

Five Amazing Books I Was Lucky Enough Receive as ARCs (& You Should Read!)

Posted August 7, 2018 in Memes // 13 Comments

One of the coolest things about being a book blogger – even a little one like me – is the opportunity to get great ARCs.  Not all of them are golden, don’t get me wrong.  I’m one of those spontaneous bloggers who has requested several books on instinct only to wish I hadn’t.  I’ve has some doozies. But, on the other hand, I’ve also gotten lucky here and there, and I’ve been fortunate enough to get to read some really awesome books early and promote them on the blog and elsewhere on the interwebs.  Thank you so much to NetGalley and LibraryThing […]

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.
