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 […]

5 Fantastic Female Friendships in YA

5 Fantastic Female Friendships in YA

Hi loves! There was a Top Ten Tuesday topic a couple weeks ago about great friendships in YA, and I really wanted to join in because I’ve been trying to remember to jot down awesome, healthy female friendships when I come across them as I’ve been reading YA books this year.  Unfortunately, since NaNoWriMo was afoot, I really didn’t have time to balance new blog posts and plow ahead with The Novel, so I didn’t make the deadline. That said, I still wanted to join in on this topic!  I know that I’ve missed some, and it pains me to disclose […]

10 Warm & Cozy Winter Reading Tips

10 Warm & Cozy Winter Reading Tips

Here in New England, the chills of winter are already upon us.  We enjoyed Thanksgiving at a crisp 17-degrees Fahrenheit, and I am hoping that isn’t an omen of an even colder winter to come.  On frozen days like these, it is an easy choice to curl up with a book and disappear somewhere more exotic than the white snowy wasteland outside my window. For me, reading comfortably is all about atmosphere and the quality of the book I’m reading.  I can’t read if my husband is watching TV right next to me, for example.  For the coziest, comfiest, happiest […]
