There was this one time, before I got sucked into the Wheel of Time, where I read a classic every month. It's time for that goal to come back. In fact, I decided to go ahead and start with the TBRs again. To be perfectly honest...it's rare that I fully accomplish my goals, so we'll… Continue reading July / August To Be Read
This review may strike you as a little crazy and bipolar. Get over it. In my opinion, the book is a little bipolar. So, I first read A Discovery of Witches because the Borders chick was like, hey, check this out. I loved the Borders chicks. I almost always read what they recommended. Because of… Continue reading Review: The Discovery of Witches
In a lot of ways writing this was hard. It's sad to look at my goodreads challenge and see how sadly lacking it is. For me. I have read 51 books this year. I realize that's a lot for most people. I would guess that my pre-child, pre-writing number of books read could easily been… Continue reading Top 5 Books of 2014
Dudes. Dude. Duuuuuuude. This book pulls the dude right out of you without ever using the word. Disclaimer: I never watched the show except here and there when my dad wouldn't let me watch My Little Pony or whatever. Right now, I'm tempted to drop a $100+ to watch the series after this book. This… Continue reading Review: MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors
Sometimes there is a book that steals a piece of you. It sinks into you and crafts a hole and nestles there coloring your imagination and changing the things you want out of life. Because of Pride and Prejudice, I dream of a different kind of love. I don't need the flashy Wickham. I need Darcy. You… Continue reading I heart books.
No. No. No, no, no, no. Well yes to that. But no. Here's the deal. If you read my previous thoughts, you'll know that I had issue with those WTF moments. For those of you who many choose to read/ watch the series, I won't tell you the epic of all EPIC WTF'S, BUT WTF,… Continue reading And the final thoughts on Outlander….
...read the Outlander would you too? In order to better understand this post, you probably need to know that there are certain kinds of books I don't really care for. These are: *ghost love stories (though there are two that I love in this genre***) *time-slip novels (because why? it just doesn't appeal to me)… Continue reading If all your friends…
Oh that's right me. I'm pretty sure I'm writing this. . . Life. Life. You know? Life. So for quick, emotionless updates. On being a foster parent: it's hard. On being a daughter: it sucks to have my parents across the country. On being a mommy: awesome. Conflicting I know. But that's how you know… Continue reading Who is this now?
I was going to make myself read the rest of my TBR pile for June before letting myself pick up this one. A sort of saving the best for last, having my cake, eating it, whatever. But when I picked up my copy, I saw how little it was, and I ran my fingers over… Continue reading Book Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane
I've been thinking, since I finished this book, how I would rate it. How I would be able to explain my thoughts. I don't even have the words. This is one of those books that affected my whole heart, my soul, everything. I couldn't put it down. It made me so sad, it was… Continue reading Book Review: The Book Thief
