Taking a moment to discuss some hard things

I was really looking forward to sharing a new post today.  A post dedicated to another one of my Bookish Travels.  However, given the current political climate, I felt that it was inappropriate for me to do so.  Instead I’m going to stop, take a breath, and talk (write) about some hard things. When I … Continue reading Taking a moment to discuss some hard things

An ode to… Madeline Miller

About a week ago (or so), I had the luxury of attending a Facebook interview with Madeline Miller and a light bulb went off above my head.  YES!  Madeline Miller!  I love her books, I should blog about her.  I mean, I have never read a better book that combines my love of a good … Continue reading An ode to… Madeline Miller

UPDATED Top Ten of 2020

So, back in January I wrote a list of the books I was most looking forward to in 2020.  Now that 2020 is half over, I’ve managed to find more!  More books!  More that are coming out in the second half of the year.  So without further ado, here’s my UPDATED list of books to … Continue reading UPDATED Top Ten of 2020

An ode to… Kevin Kwan

Well Kevin Kwan is back! Well, I guess I should say that Kevin Kwan hasn't gone anywhere, but he's coming out with a new book which is super exciting for me! Haven't read his other books? Boy are you missing out. His first book, Crazy Rich Asians was such a riot! Seriously. I loved it … Continue reading An ode to… Kevin Kwan

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Given all that's going in the world today, I have been reading a lot of light-hearted romantic comedies. I mean, A LOT. One of the best I’ve come across recently is Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon. I was lucky enough to read this as an eARC (Thanks, Edelweiss) since it isn't set to … Continue reading Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Bookish Travels: Dreaming of Japan

So normally at this point in the year, I have already arranged my summer vacation.  As a school librarian, I have limited time off during the year and I must fit my expansive travel desires into a definite period of time. This year, well, this year stinks.  I can’t even really plan anything when my … Continue reading Bookish Travels: Dreaming of Japan

The Royal Countdown

Since I discovered that I had read 54 (54, seriously?!) royal books, I figured I could share my list of the Top Ten! Without further ado... The Royal Countdown! All the book covers plus a photo from The Tower of London of the British Crown jewels (I'm not that talented a photographer). Check it out, … Continue reading The Royal Countdown

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

And with this post, I achieve the hat trick of royal book reviews!  The tic-tac-toe, if you will. The trifecta!  I never intended to write these three in a row.  But, I have read an awful lot of royal books and after reviewing RWRB by Casey McQuiston, Majesty by Katharine McGee, I would be remiss … Continue reading The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

Majesty by Katharine McGee

I never thought I'd be here writing this particular review. This book has been a complete surprise to me, for many reasons. Firstly, can you believe that I've read 54 books that I would classify as "royalty?" When I finished this book, I thought it would be useful to have a dedicated Goodreads shelf for … Continue reading Majesty by Katharine McGee

Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Best book of 2019!! Let me lay the scene for you:   My birthday, 2019.   My present from Mr. Librarian: as many books as I want.   The locale:  Politics and Prose in Washington DC.   Truthfully, I’m not one to just buy books.  I’m only able to support my serious reading habit by checking out all the … Continue reading Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
