The Jane Austen Experience

So, did you read my review last week about Ladies of the House by Lauren Edmondson? Well, you should (and I'm not like biased or anything.) Did you run out and order it like I did? OK, good. So while you're waiting for it to be released or (if you're reading this AFTER February 2021) … Continue reading The Jane Austen Experience

Looking back at 2020

So it's that time of year. The time when everyone tends to take stock of what they have accomplished in the past year. While many people make New Year's Resolutions, I have always avoided the practice. I tend to find that making those resolutions means I am setting myself up for failure. Instead, I like … Continue reading Looking back at 2020

An ode to… Kerri Maniscalco

So I’ll be the first to admit that I came to Kerri Maniscalco later than many, many others.  See, I have this prejudice against James Patterson (I mean - unputdownable IS NOT A WORD!!! AAAAH)  and his imprint publishes Maniscalco’s books (well, it did, but now she'll be published elsewhere).  I know I shouldn’t judge … Continue reading An ode to… Kerri Maniscalco

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

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

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 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
