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

Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn

Happy 2021! Here's hoping that 2021 is a better year for all of us!! So I'm going to confess that I felt there was a lot of pressure for my first book of the year. I want to start the year off on the right foot and set a positive tone. But, that's a lot … Continue reading Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn

Miracles and Menorahs by Stacey Agdern

I purchased Miracles and Menorahs by Stacey Agdern a few months ago in preparation for a Hanukkah celebration that I knew would look so different from years past.  I was so excited to have a holiday novel that honored Hanukkah that I saved it to read during the eight nights of the holiday.  I’m so … Continue reading Miracles and Menorahs by Stacey Agdern

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

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

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

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
