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

A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey

I’m back (or at least, I hope I’m back.)  The start of this school year has been super stressful and the last thing I seem to want to do at the end of the day is write.  But, I miss it and so I hope that my inspiration and drive for updating more regularly has … Continue reading A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey

Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade

So, last week felt exceptionally long. With the debate raging in the United States if schools should reopen on time, I needed some fluffy romance novels to take my mind off real life. As it happened, I had a boatload waiting for me from NetGalley. Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade was the third one I … Continue reading Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade

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

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

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
