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 […]

10 Book Bloggerish Things I am Grateful for this Year

10 Book Bloggerish Things I am Grateful for this Year

Bonjour, mes chers. American Thanksgiving is this Thursday and while it had some grisly, mortifying beginnings, it has become a day for family and gratitude and reflection.  And, frankly, for food.  Big focus on food.  But it’s still a good time to look back and reflect on the previous year and find things that have brought us joy and to be grateful for them. I didn’t do one of these last year, so I really wanted to remedy that this year. I a grateful for… a consistent readership base. We bloggers but a lot of work into our content for […]

Dear TBR Jar:  Send Me These 9 Books

Dear TBR Jar: Send Me These 9 Books

I have resigned myself to the fact that my TBR is eternal and there’s nothing I can do about it.  There are simply too many books out there that sound so wonderful, and life is too short… and these days, I really only have time to read on the weekends, anyway. Except for audiobooks.  With an 87 mile commute each way, audiobooks are my life.  All hail audiobooks! Because of my limited time and space, I’m supposed to be pretty strict about what I read.  I go through my TBR shelf on Goodreads in chronological order of when I added the […]
