June Wrap Up

June Wrap Up

June is already gone, and what an unexpected month it has been.  For me, June has been a month that has required patience – at work and at home, and with my reading.  As I write this, though, my house is peacefully quiet and it smells like barbecue pulled pork, so it important to find all the little things are cling to them lovingly. All in all, June has been a good month.  It went by so fast, but doesn’t it seem like they all do, by the time we hit the wrap up?   Y’all know how I keep […]

May Wrap Up

May Wrap Up

Sometime in the midst of May, summer arrived! When I left to go to Europe, there was a snowstorm on our tail, following us from New Hampshire all the way up to Manhattan. When I came back, it was 80-degrees outside!  That, in a brief description, is New England weather.  I love it and I hate it, but overall I’m really glad to see the sunshine. Mentally and emotionally, May is a difficult month for me.  I’ll talk about that a little more later, but lets start, as always, with the books!             The breakdown: ARCs/Freebies from Publishers: The Story Girl, LIFEL1K3, […]

Long Weekends & Ready Player One

Long Weekends & Ready Player One

Good morning my lovelies, and happy Easter! Whether you’re at Easter Mass, on an egg hunt, or doing positively nothing at all, I hope you have a delightful day! I have had a most amazingly productive book week for the first time in ages, which was a lovely change.  Finished three books this week, all of which have been fairly long-running for me, and all of which I enjoyed.  You should be seeing reviews pop up for The Magicians, Gone With the Wind, and Wizard and Glass throughout the next couple weeks!   Of course, this also means I started new books!  Matt […]

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 […]

Magic & Life & Happy Weekend, Y’all!

Magic & Life & Happy Weekend, Y’all!

Hi everybody! I just felt like popping in and saying hi.  Some of my favorite posts to read on other peoples’ blogs are the ones where it’s like sitting down and having a cup of tea with an old friend.  I know I have my March Wrap Up coming tomorrow, which includes some of those things anyway, but I just felt like popping in. So.  Hi!  How are you all today? I am luxuriating in a rare Sunday, where my husband is off on Adventures in Skiing and I am cozy at home, able to do as I please.  To […]

February Wrap Up

February Wrap Up

February is always the fastest month of the year.  Maybe it’s because there’s so much going on, maybe it’s because it’s technically the shortest month… I don’t know!  But here we are again at the end of it! For all you beautiful people reading this, I hope you all had an amazing Valentine’s Day, Lunar New Year, President’s Day – the whole shebang.  And all the holidays I missed.  February is ripe with holidays! My bookishness wasn’t as ambitious this month as January, but I loved all the books I got through.  It was just slow going.  February hits me hard as […]
