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: “Hollow Kingdom” by Kira Jane Buxton

I've had my eyes on this for a while, and it finally came up as an Amazon Daily Kindle Deal, so I jumped at the opportunity, not knowing entirely what I'd find behind the cover. From GoodReads: S.T., a domesticated crow, is a bird of simple pleasures: hanging out with his owner Big Jim, trading … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Hollow Kingdom” by Kira Jane Buxton

Halfway There!

I can't believe today is the first day of July. I can remember staring the year off with The Thirty Names of Night and then in June, I finished my seventy-second book. So what have I done in the past few months, besides play hooky from my blog? I started back at the office full-time … Continue reading Halfway There!

Book Review: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

I'm going to be honest with you - I started writing this review as soon as I finished the book, and then promptly got bored with writing the review and wandered off to do something else, then didn't read another book for almost three weeks. Now that I've finished that book (The Lost Apothecary) and … Continue reading Book Review: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

Book Review: “West With Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge

After a bunch of depressing books in a row, this is the first book that I would like to shout to the rooftops and tell everyone to read it, because it is absolutely beautiful. The beginning is a little disjointed - and the few "current era" interruptions of Woody by his nursing home orderlies are … Continue reading Book Review: “West With Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge

First Impression Friday: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore

I believe this was February's First Kindle Read, and I'll go ahead and let you know that I am actually reading it in February. I've just read so many books so far this year (37 as of this writing!) that it seems I've got a backlog of posts to write! From GoodReads: New Hampshire, 1865. … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore
