The Opposite Book Tag

Welcome back to Book Tag Thursday! I found this week's tag on Way Too Fantasy, and then followed the string of previous book tags back to Dreamland Book Blog, but it looks like the original one was a video on YouTube that is now private, so I can't link back to the original creator. FIRST … Continue reading The Opposite Book Tag

Recipe Review: Naan from Rasa Malaysia

We decided to make butter chicken and realized we didn't have any naan or pita bread and didn't really want to go out in the rain and get more ingredients, so I decided to search online and find a recipe for naan, hoping for a bread machine recipe but found this one from Rasa Malaysia … Continue reading Recipe Review: Naan from Rasa Malaysia

TTT: My 10 Most Recent Reads

Welcome back to this week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted as always by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week's theme is ten most recent reads, and I am excited to read everyone's lists this week, because I'm sure that there will be no two lists that are exactly the same!

Book Review: “My Sister, the Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite

Remember when I said I was shocked at how fast this book seemed to go by? I finished the whole thing in an hour. I seem to remember it looking way longer whenever I spotted it on bookshelves at the store, but the secrets were revealed to the Kindle percentage tracker. If you've forgotten the … Continue reading Book Review: “My Sister, the Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite

April Wrap-Up

I read __ books this month, which is still way below what I wanted to read. I'm hoping to up this count in May. I think I may tackle the Septimus Heap series just to give me something to look forward to with a definitive number of books to finish. Broken by Jenny LawsonHollow Kingdom … Continue reading April Wrap-Up

First Impression Friday: “The Librarian of Auschwitz” by Antonio G. Iturbe

I've seen this book on bookstore shelves many times, but for some reason I've never picked it up. I was browsing the "Now Available" section in my Overdrive app to see what my library had available while I wait on my holds to come available (I'm only #160 on The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue! … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Librarian of Auschwitz” by Antonio G. Iturbe

The Would You Rather Book Tag

Welcome back to Book Tag Thursday! This week's book tag was found on Mary and the Words, and I ran into the same problem she did when I attempted to track down the original creator: it's not an easy thing to do. The more you go back, the more the actual questions change, and at … Continue reading The Would You Rather Book Tag

Recipe Review: Martha Stewart’s Buttermilk Biscuits

After trying and failing miserably with Biscuit Head's cathead biscuits on a Saturday morning, I was determined to redeem myself the very next day (Sunday) by making buttermilk biscuits that worked. And so my husband found Martha Stewart's buttermilk biscuit recipe that had similar ratios to the Biscuit Head one, and I went to work. … Continue reading Recipe Review: Martha Stewart’s Buttermilk Biscuits

TTT: Animals From Books

Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, where I've skipped a few weeks because I either got super busy, let my pre-scheduled posts catch up to the present, or got overwhelmed by actually having to go into an office for the first time in over a year, and so time has kind of gotten away from … Continue reading TTT: Animals From Books

Four Year Blog-a-versary!

Technically, the four-year mark is tomorrow, April 27, but since I've got a Top Ten Tuesday post scheduled for tomorrow, I figured talking about things a day early wouldn't be too bad. But wow - four years! I can't believe I've been doing this for four entire years. I've gone back and looked at some … Continue reading Four Year Blog-a-versary!
