Seven Books for Seven Days Tag

Welcome back to Tag Thursday! This week's tag was found on Foxes & Fairytales, and the original tag appears to be from Daryan Reads on YouTube. (I've never been able to get into BookTube, especially because the majority of people don't put closed captions on their videos. It's what I like about TikTok - most … Continue reading Seven Books for Seven Days Tag

Recipe Review: Spaghetti Carbonara inspired by Master of None from Binging with Babish

Original recipe from the Babish cookbook (we met Babish and got our signed in January 2020!). Steven's made this recipe before (I think before we even started dating - but I know I saw him post about it on Facebook so we were at least friends), but I have never had carbonara. Now, before you … Continue reading Recipe Review: Spaghetti Carbonara inspired by Master of None from Binging with Babish

TTT: Books I’d Want on a Deserted Island

Welcome back to TTT, where somehow I've had the discipline to write about it two weeks in a row! This week's theme is "Books I'd Want With Me While Stranded on a Deserted Island," hosted as always by That Artsy Reader Girl. When I was younger, I bought a book called The Kid's Survival Handbook … Continue reading TTT: Books I’d Want on a Deserted Island

Book Review: “Broken (in the best possible way)” by Jenny Lawson

I finished this entire book the first day I had it, which was the first time I'd one-shot a book since February (when I finished my incredible 60-book sprint) and then I put it down and sat back on the couch to really think about it. I've mentioned before how much I love Jenny Lawson, … Continue reading Book Review: “Broken (in the best possible way)” by Jenny Lawson

First Impression Friday: “The Conductors” by Nicole Glover

I recommended this to my library several months ago and they finally bought it, and I was first on the waiting list! From GoodReads: As a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Hetty Rhodes helped usher dozens of people north with her wits and magic. Now that the Civil War is over, Hetty and her husband … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Conductors” by Nicole Glover

Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

Original Recipe from Handle the Heat I got a springform pan for my wedding last year, and I hadn't had a chance to use it yet, so my brilliant plan was to make a cheesecake for myself and my husband, without realizing just how big a ten-inch springform pan is. Note: if you're going to … Continue reading Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

TTT: Books I Read in One Sitting

Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme that I participate in when I remember it exists! This week's topic is Books I Read in One Sitting, and it's brought to you, as always, by That Artsy Reader Girl! When I was in high school, I always had a new book every single day. … Continue reading TTT: Books I Read in One Sitting

Book Review: “Hollow Kingdom” by Kira Jane Buxton

It took me almost two weeks to get through this book, and I'm not sure why. I read the first 45% in fits and starts, and then caught an empty day at work where I blew through the remainder of the book all at once, and I'll just go ahead and spoil the end of … Continue reading Book Review: “Hollow Kingdom” by Kira Jane Buxton

First Impression Friday: “Broken (in the best possible way)” by Jenny Lawson

I had to wait an entire week after the release of this book before it finally arrived in my mail box, but it was well worth the wait. From GoodReads: As Jenny Lawson’s hundreds of thousands of fans know, she suffers from depression. In Broken, Jenny brings readers along on her mental and physical health … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Broken (in the best possible way)” by Jenny Lawson
