Books From Around the World

Books From Around the World

Reading books from around the world is something I love to focus on. I love traveling to different countries via books and seeing the world through other’s eyes. Sadly over the past couple of years, though, I haven’t been paying as much attention to where I’m reading nor where the authors I’m reading are from. This means that while my reading is still fairly diverse, the books I’ve been reading have been mostly set in the […]

How to Fit Audiobooks Into Your Day

How to Fit Audiobooks Into Your Day

Did you know that June is Audiobook Month? I can’t believe I let the entire month go by before mentioning this, but since there are still three days (including this one) left, here we go! When I first started listening to audiobooks, my listening was limited to my 45-60 minute commute to and from work. If I was listening to a particularly good book when I got home, it wasn’t unusual for me to sit […]

Pleasure Delayed Reading

Pleasure Delayed Reading

Happy Sunday!! Who’s suffering of heat exhaustion now that we’re a day away from summer? While we haven’t officially broken 100 yet, our heat index has reached above and I’ve been avoiding the outdoors at all costs. Yay summer! Perfect excuse to stay in with a book, right? I’ve recently noticed that I have a bad habit when it comes to books. I love to scour bookstore shelves for books that I’m dying to read. I […]

Books I’ve Recently Read | Magic Edition

Books I’ve Recently Read | Magic Edition

Way back in March (I swear that was like a week ago), Kristen from We Be Reading hosted a little party called March Magics. Every year she dedicates March to Diana Wynne Jones, and with Terry Pratchett’s passing she decided to add him to the month. I’ve had Mort on my shelf for years, and I heard quite a bit about Fire and Hemlock from other bloggers during Book Blogger Appreciation Week, so I knew I needed […]

On to the Next Book!

On to the Next Book!

  Happy Sunday everyone! We’ve had so much rain lately, but caught a dry spell for the weekend so took the girls camping. Maybe more on that soon? I don’t have a segue into today’s post, so let’s just get into it! The other day I finished a book (How Children Succeed) and at that particular time I was with Cara while she was napping. Because I wasn’t sleeping but I was stuck under the […]

Ten E-Books I Couldn’t Resist

Ten E-Books I Couldn’t Resist

  Guilty! I’m absolutely guilty of buying ebooks on whim, especially if they are on Kindle daily deal (I used to subscribe to the Barnes and Noble daily deals as well but after my Nook battery exploded I haven’t read any Nook books). Today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt (hosted by the Broke and the Bookish) is books we picked up on a whim. While I often buy books I know nothing about, I rarely buy […]

Finishing the Series

Finishing the Series

Hi hi hi!!! Here we are halfway through May–but I’m just going to go ahead and think of this month as half full. That’s a thing, right? Let’s make it a thing. Today we are talking about series/trilogy books. I know series and trilogies are different, but I’m using the terms interchangeably for this post. I know I haven’t been blogging a ton about books this year, but I’ve actually been doing a fair amount […]

For the Love of E-Reading

For the Love of E-Reading

If you had asked me a few years ago, I would have said that I like my e-reader but it’s not my preferred method for reading. Oh goodness has that changed. With each book that I read, my love for e-reading becomes more and more concrete. Though, I do think a lot of my love speaks to where I am at in life. If I’m alone, I still enjoy picking up a paper book–and goodness […]

Graphic Novel Reviewlettes 2

  By the way, have I mentioned how glad I am that it’s March? I’m not thrilled that we didn’t have a single hard freeze this year (zomg the bugs we’ll have this summer!), but the trees are in bloom and budding and the weather is getting warmer and we’ve even had our first round of spring storms. Bring on spring!! Below you’ll find snippets for the second half of my Comics in February month. […]

Graphic Novel Reviewlettes

Graphic Novel Reviewlettes

Well, Comics February is almost to an end–we have a bonus day this year with leap day and I might try to squeeze in one more read. I always love this month and this month was an especially good one with some great comics. I tried to keep my thoughts on each as brief as possible, but since that was impossible I’m splitting up this post into two. Y’all keep me on track to actually […]
