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

An ode to… The Hunger Games

As a teen librarian, I often read books in which I’m not particularly interested.  I do this to be sure I have well rounded knowledge so I can recommend books for any child, regardless if they are my cup of tea or not.  I also read the popular stuff because, inevitably, I will have students … Continue reading An ode to… The Hunger Games

Bookish Travels: Amsterdam 2018

I've been holding off on posting this because of all the turmoil that's happening in the world. To read my thoughts on what's going on, please click here. However, at the end of the day, this blog is about love. I think we could all use a bit more love in our lives. I hope … Continue reading Bookish Travels: Amsterdam 2018

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

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
