My Week in the Books {11}
Posted October 23, 2017 / Books & Reading, My Week In The Books

What Happened: October has been a roller coaster of a month for me. But the last week or so has been much better. I do think that the darkness is really affecting my mood (and my sleep). Hopefully I can get my emotions and mental stability back on track. I have been using weekend visits to Starbucks as my recharge time. I put a book in my purse and my pup in the car and […]

Dear Martin by Nic Stone

Dear Martin by Nic Stone
Posted October 17, 2017 / Book Talks

I have been following Nic Stone ever since I met her at Decatur Book Festival a couple years ago. At that time, I knew she was writing a book. So I have been anxiously awaiting this book for a couple of years. I was lucky enough to get an ARC at ALA Midwinter (and have her sign it because she was there!). It was the first book I read when I got home. That was […]

Reading Round-Up: September 2017
Posted October 1, 2017 / Books & Reading

Reading Round-Up is an end of the month recap of my reading life, including books read, reading stats, and reading challenge updates! It’s just an easy way for me to track my reading life! August was such a slow month for my reading life that I didn’t even have enough content to do a Reading Round-Up Post. But I definitely got back on track this month! I have read a lot of really fantastic books […]

Monthly Stack: October 2017
Posted September 30, 2017 / Books & Reading

Monthly Stack is a new monthly feature where I will share some of the new month’s releases I am looking forward to the most. I will highlight a handful in the hopes of sharing my interest, either personally or for my school library! October is full of fantastic-sounding books heading to the bookshelves! Because of that, this post will be extra long, but that’s okay! Because all of these books sound amazing and you should […]

Book Talks: Some Summer Reading

Book Talks: Some Summer Reading
Posted September 19, 2017 / Book Talks

My summer reading was kind of off and on for me. Because of my lack of consistency, I fell behind in my book talks. In an effort to catch up on sharing my reading life, here are mini-reviews for the books I read in July and August. What a wonderful collection of LGBTQ activists and heroes across history. This book is well-researched and does a great job of giving information and keeping the reader’s attention […]

My Week in the Books {10}
Posted September 18, 2017 / Books & Reading, My Week In The Books

What Happened: With Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma coming so far inland, we actually cancelled school for two days to avoid potential threats. Thankfully my area was spared most of the storm–we just got the occasional 30mph wind gust. But it is better to be safe than sorry, especially in an area that is never prepared for hurricane weather (and also tends to flood during a regular thunderstorm). But I must admit–having the extra couple of days […]

What I’m Watching is feature where I spotlight what I have been watching recently. Whether it be Movies, Television, or Documentaries, this is a space where I will feature what I have become obsessed with or what I just didn’t like at all! Television and Film are a major part of my life, too, and I just want them to be represented on my blog as well! This post will cover the things I have […]

The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith

The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
Posted September 14, 2017 / Book Talks

I started listening to Book Riot’s new Read or Dead podcast this summer. It is a new podcast all about mysteries, suspense stories, and thrillers. The first couple of episodes the two hosts kept gushing about how great Robert Galbraith’s mystery series is, especially on audio. I was looking for some good audiobooks to listen to this summer, so I decided the time was right to check them out. Little did I know I would […]
