J.U.L.Y. Bookstack

Hi y'all! It's the last day of July, and summer shows no signs of leaving anytime soon here in Oklahoma. But that is "normal," so I won't complain. At least, I won't complain as long as the air conditioning keeps working! Today I am sharing July's #SpellTheMonthInBooks post. It's a completely digital version this month,... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Today's review is a little different from most. Since this book is something of a modern classic, there is already an ongoing conversation about it in critical circles. Properly engaging with this dialogue is beyond the scope of this blog post. To a large degree, rather than a review, this is a comparison of the... Continue Reading →

First Line Friday {7/26/2019} Featuring: Dandelion Dust

Hi all, and Happy Friday! It has been too long since I got three blog posts out in a week - and I can't promise it will continue to happen regularly in the close future - but this is worth a small celebration! Cue the confetti, or at least another cup of coffee! After finishing... Continue Reading →

Semi-Spontaneous Library Haul

There are undoubtedly a lot of benefits to working in the library, and one of the biggest is easy access to whatever I want to read. I get to see when materials are returned before they even make it back to the shelf, I can easily track my place on reserves lists, and I am... Continue Reading →

Jane Austen July

One of the first book bloggers I followed when I started blogging at Reviews From the Stacks is Elaine Howlin. About a month ago she posted about something called Jane Austen July (read the post here); at this time I was in the midst of enjoying the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge, and decided to...

What I Read in June + July TBR

Yes, I know we are already over a week into July and I am just now getting this post up. Somehow, June flew by with much less reading achievement than I expected, but more than I realized I was attaining along the way! There was so much going on at the library, plus I participated...

Yarn Along {July 2019 Edition}

Yarn Along is a monthly link up hosted at Small Things. The point is to share our yarn-type projects (such as knitting, crochet, or similar) as well as the books we are reading. I love watching others’ projects develop, and of course I love hearing about the books people are reading, too! You can see everyone’s... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Strength by Lauren Salisbury

Hello Readers! Despite how rocky June was, I am determined to get back on track with scheduled posting in July. I cannot promise to be entirely consistent this month, but I do have several things that I want to write about, so I am doing my best. Today's review is the third book in Lauren...

LMA Reading Challenge 2019 Wrap Up

To say that June did not end how I hoped and planned for it to here on Reviews From the Stacks would be an understatement. I will make a wrap-up post for the entire month soon, but today I am wrapping up the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge 2019. The Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge... Continue Reading →
