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

Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center

(Left: Original Cover, Right: New Cover - releasing in Sept 2020) Wow.  What a beautiful story. I loved it so much that it got one of my elusive 5-star ratings on Goodreads.   Side note: I should probably, at some point, explain my Goodreads rating system, but suffice it to say that in order to receive … Continue reading Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center

An ode to… Gail Carriger

A Finishing School where the ladies become spies? An organization of like-minded humans, supernaturals and metanaturals defending the innocent and wearing only the most fashionable accessories at the same time? A ladybug painted dirigible that travels the world searching for and protecting new supernaturals unheard about in the British Empire? Ah, yes. An ode to … Continue reading An ode to… Gail Carriger

The Folk of the Air by Holly Black

Are you a fan of Game of Thrones but sometimes wish there was a little less incest, rape, and violence?  Well, have I got a trilogy for you. Except for the violence part. Hard to get away from the violence if you’re looking for something similar to GoT. The Folk of the Air: The Cruel … Continue reading The Folk of the Air by Holly Black

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

I know I haven’t been doing this blog for that long.  I don’t know you (yet - growth mindset) and who knows if anyone is really reading this (besides you, dad…) but this week has been rough.  Rough in that I can’t go to my amazing job, see my amazing students, and enjoy being with … Continue reading Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Looking forward to 2020

Happy New Year!   I hope everyone had a wonderful new year!  I spent my New Year’s Eve listening to the eight hour fireworks show in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Those Danes really love their fireworks! Apparently, Danes can legally buy (professional grade - to my untrained American eye) fireworks during the month of December and then can … Continue reading Looking forward to 2020

Well Met by Jen Deluca

So welcome!   It has been difficult for me to pick a book to talk about first.  I read so much and this summer has been chock full of amazing reads, so the conundrum I face is which one to talk about first.  Cover Image courtesy of Penguin Random House. However, there is one book that … Continue reading Well Met by Jen Deluca
