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

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

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

Bookish Travels: Italy 2006

This is how it all began.   Ah… remember those days when we were not only allowed to leave the house, but in fact travel to regions hither-to-for unknown to us.   I take us back to many, many moons ago, when Mr. Librarian and I went on our first overseas trip together.  We had just gotten … Continue reading Bookish Travels: Italy 2006
