Book Review: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

Today is the last day of July, and the heat cannot leave soon enough for me! It's been an unusual but generally enjoyable summer, but I am completely ready for cooler temperatures, cozy aesthetics around town, pumpkin spice, and school. I don't think I have ever been this excited for school to start - almost... Continue Reading →

I Completed My 2020 Goodreads Goal!

On Saturday, July 25, I achieved my goal of reading 60 books in 2020!! I am so glad that I got this finished before school starts next month (somehow orientation being this Saturday seems both way too soon and not soon enough!). I wanted to have a little fun to celebrate, so I'm doing the... Continue Reading →

Five-Star Book Review: A Strand of Hope by Amanda Tero

This is an exciting week, because I get to talk about two new releases by independent authors who I support wholeheartedly! Then, I'll have a just for fun post on Wednesday (possibly a tag?), my review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes on Friday, and I attend orientation for graduate school on Saturday. That's a lot for my literary heart to be happy about!

Summer Reading Challenges Check-In

I love the Annie Moses Band. Their music is just phenomenal! They're most well-known for their Christmas music, but I love their other music as well. As we're nearly halfway through Summer, this seemed an ideal time to share this song with y'all! For the same reason, it's time for me to check in on... Continue Reading →

2020 Garden Chronicles #7

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, Readers! I managed a three-day weekend for Fourth of July this year, and while it was not what I anticipated when I first found out I would have three days off, it was definitely good. Last week things became very stressful at work, and being able to be both physically and mentally separated from that environment for a few days was restorative. Many of the reasons for last week's stress do carry over into this week, but I'm hopeful that everyone involved had a chance to relax this weekend and will come back into the situation with a little more peace and perspective. 

Book Review: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michelle Richardson

Happy Friday, Readers! The book I'm reviewing today has some parts that are very difficult to read due to the content, but I enjoyed learning about the Pack Horse Librarians very much. There really is a lot to unpack with this one.
