Bookish Travels: Delaware 2021

Camping.  Yes, camping. I must say that for the entire amount of years I have been on this Earth, I had never been camping.  Sleeping in a tent, cooking over an open flame, no bathrooms, I mean, come on - that’s definitely not me.  But sometimes, you’ll catch me in a mood to try something … Continue reading Bookish Travels: Delaware 2021

Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline

Hi everyone, it’s me - Mr. Librarian! Cheryl allowed me to write about one of my favorite books of 2020. What should you know about me? I’m a nerd, and the books I mostly read are biographies, histories, and occasionally sci-fi books. Most of the time Cheryl teases me about my book selection being super … Continue reading Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline

The Jane Austen Experience

So, did you read my review last week about Ladies of the House by Lauren Edmondson? Well, you should (and I'm not like biased or anything.) Did you run out and order it like I did? OK, good. So while you're waiting for it to be released or (if you're reading this AFTER February 2021) … Continue reading The Jane Austen Experience

Ladies of the House by Lauren Edmondson

You should probably know that I am a total sucker for a Jane Austen retelling.  Or just Jane Austen.  Or books about Jane Austen.  Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books of all time with Sense and Sensibility and Emma not too far behind.  And I have the pleasure of saying that I … Continue reading Ladies of the House by Lauren Edmondson

Looking back at 2020

So it's that time of year. The time when everyone tends to take stock of what they have accomplished in the past year. While many people make New Year's Resolutions, I have always avoided the practice. I tend to find that making those resolutions means I am setting myself up for failure. Instead, I like … Continue reading Looking back at 2020

Looking forward to 2021

It’s that time of year again.  The time of year where I get reflective about the year’s past (although is anyone really looking back at 2020 with anything other than disappointment, anger, and contempt?) and I start getting hopeful and excited about the year to come.   Last year at this time, I hadn’t written much … Continue reading Looking forward to 2021

One Person, No Vote by Carol Anderson

On this blog, I try to talk about the books that make me happy, or lacking that, books that give me a strong emotional response that I feel that I just have to talk about.  I avoid sad subjects or books that I hate in order to promote a positive outlook on the world.  If … Continue reading One Person, No Vote by Carol Anderson

An ode to… A Court of Thorns and Roses

When I originally decided to write this post, I wanted it to focus on my favorite in the series, book 2 - A Court of Mist and Fury.  I had Mr. Librarian read an early draft and his biggest critique was that I was spending so much time explaining and exploring book 1, that I … Continue reading An ode to… A Court of Thorns and Roses

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

Ah… the romance novel that started it all.  At least, for me. To be honest with you, my TBR list has been so long for a such long time that I hardly ever have the time or inclination to add books to it just because they seem to be trending everywhere. But even I couldn't … Continue reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner

I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of historical fiction, but I can say that I am a huge fan of Jane Austen!  Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books of all time!  So when I saw there was going to be a novel about the creation of society to preserve Austen’s legacy, … Continue reading The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner
