2018: My Year In Books

2018: My Year In Books

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 […]

March Wrap Up

March Wrap Up

My loves, I am exhausted.  February and March are always difficult months for me, with many thanks to the glorious New England weather.  I can only do so much with grey skies and snowstorms, you know?  This month’s wrap up is going to be brief – mostly just to say hi and let you know what’s been going on in my library these days and see how you all are doing! My haul was pretty low key this month, which is fine!  I didn’t go out and buy any of these except Children of Blood and Bone – all pre-orders, ARCs […]

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl

This little book was quirky, fun and adorable.  Everything I’d expect from Roald Dahl. I know I don’t often review children’s books, but some just deserve a bit of love.  Silly nostalgic books from silly nostalgic authors.  Between The BFG and Matilda, Roald Dahl ruled my childhood.  And, as I’ve grown into adulthood, I’ve learned he wrote a lot more books than I knew when I was a kid.  Am I going to let being 28 stop me from reading them?  Um, no. The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me is a cute little one-off story about a boy and his three […]

October Wrap-Up

October Wrap-Up

Well my dears, it’s here! October has packed her bags and gotten away from me again.  Every year I feel like I’m chasing the autumnal delights of this month, and I just can’t keep up with it!  It’s my favorite time of year, but it’s also one of the busiest times of year, and it just slips away.  I come out at the end panting like it’s been a marathon but the loot was well worth it!  The leaves are off the trees, the air is getting crisp… winter is just around the corner. Well this month was actually WORSE than the […]
