Some New Books on My TBR… That I’ll Probably Read in 2023

Some New Books on My TBR… That I’ll Probably Read in 2023

I add so many books to my TBR so frequently that I am in NO WAY making a dent in that monster.  I add my books through a number of different ways: Because I just read the book and now MUST have the sequel. Because I just read a book and now MUST have more by that author. Because one of the people I follow on Goodreads just rated it high so I read the description and found it interesting. Because it’s a debut I find interesting – I’m constantly flipping through the debut lists on Goodreads. Because MacKenzie Lee […]

Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To

Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To

In June, it feels like there’s soooooo much time left in the year to work towards my annual goals and stuff, but dang.  The end of the year really snuck up on me in 2018.  I was going strong with the 2018 Debut Authors Challenge, and then about halfway through the year it occurred to me that I should probably start reading the debuts exclusively until I caught up.  Then those took me right to the end of the year, with An Absolutely Remarkable Thing just squeaking by. This year, I’m not actively participating in the debut authors challenge (says the girl who’s read three […]

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

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 […]

2019 Releases I Can’t Wait For!

2019 Releases I Can’t Wait For!

One of the best and most exciting things of the new year is the new slew of books that are coming!  A couple of these, I’ve been waiting for since 2017, so they’ve been on my radar for a while – others are sequels to books I’ve read this year.  One way or the other, I’m so excited for these books and I want to share them with you, because I hope you’re excited for them too! Okay, so a few of these I received as ARCs?  But I’m really excited for everyone to read them, so they made the list! 🙂     […]

10 Books I May Have to Buy For Myself This Christmas

10 Books I May Have to Buy For Myself This Christmas

Merry Christmas, my lovelies!  I hope everyone has a fantastic day, whether you celebrate for religious beliefs, cultural reasons, or if you don’t celebrate at all! As you read this, I’ll be putting the finishing touches on a breakfast bake that I make every year for Christmas brunch with my parents. 🙂  Since we don’t have kids, my husband and I travel on Christmas, so we will be bouncing around and on the road all day. Of course, one of the most prominent aspects of this seasons is giving and getting thoughtful gifts!  If you’re like me, you love getting unexpected […]

Video Games I Come Back to Time and Again

Video Games I Come Back to Time and Again

So… I just wanted to do something a little different today – something that has absolutely nothing to do with books for a change.  I know, I know.  I just finished the big, long Disney review a couple weeks ago and I’m already skewing away from books?  This is just one quick little feature, but after the Top Ten Tuesday a couple weeks ago, I got to think about things I love to do in the winter besides reading. Winter is one of those times where it’s just really good to curl up in one spot and hibernate a bit.  I’m talking […]
