Books I’m Taking on My Honeymoon (and what I wish I was taking)

Everyone kept telling me our wedding day would be a blur and man, they were right. I feel like it was gone in the blink of an eye. The weather was perfect (sunny and 75) and the night went absolutely perfect (besides running out of beer, but we fixed that problem!) and we could not… Continue reading Books I’m Taking on My Honeymoon (and what I wish I was taking)

You Love Books, So You Must Want To Be An Author, Right? – Part One

Books were my home as a kid. I wish I had half the time and energy to read as I did back then. I would take a stack of books out from the library weekly and finish them all, no questions asked. Summers were spent in my room or outside, reading anything and everything I… Continue reading You Love Books, So You Must Want To Be An Author, Right? – Part One

Reading Game of Thrones AFTER Watching the Show and Why I Hate Re-reading

I had a bit of a late start to the Game of Thrones TV show. I started to watch when season five was already out, quickly becoming addicted and in desperate need of more Jon Snow. I'm not sure I've ever been more entranced by a show. Every character had major flaws (some more than… Continue reading Reading Game of Thrones AFTER Watching the Show and Why I Hate Re-reading

Book Review – The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

I'm still in awe of this beautiful novel. It's rich, full of fantastic characters, flowery writing, minimal lovey dovey scenes, and a political world based on people's need to be perfect and beautiful. I loved the concept of this story. It wasn't like anything I've read before. The characters had real flaws, and the villian… Continue reading Book Review – The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

The Broken Girls by Simone St.James – Book Review

What a fantastic mystery filled with paranormal experiences and suspense. This novel had so many layers that fit together like puzzle pieces and an ending that actually surprised me quite a bit. I hardly ever read thrillers since they give me anxiety but I really LOVED this one. Fiona Sheridan is a journalist that can't… Continue reading The Broken Girls by Simone St.James – Book Review

What Harry Potter Means to Me

Whether it was reading under the table during class (I never got in trouble!), rushing through my homework so I could read at night, or begging my Mom to bring me to the library. Reading took up so much of… Continue reading What Harry Potter Means to Me

Book Review: The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick

I had a huge Tudor book phase 4-5 years ago. I read everything about Henry the 8th and his wives, watched any Tudor show/movie (ahem, The Tudors with Jonathan Rhys Myers...swoon) and thought about what it was like to live during that era. My phase ended when I moved out of my apartment and into… Continue reading Book Review: The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick
