Happy Friday! Today's book review is a complicated one. I really, truly wanted to like this one, but it is rather problematic. If you're looking for a slow ease into Christmas reading, this might be a book to consider, as it is set around Christmas but really doesn't have anything to do with the holiday. The big draw to me was the setting - Australia! Read on for my full thoughts.

Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing my one and only Halloween-themed book review for this year, and what a sweet treat it is. The Fall of Candy Corn is a fun young adult story with healthy sides of both mystery and faith. About the Book Title: The Fall of Candy Corn (Sweet Seasons #2) Author: Debbie... Continue Reading →
I read Out of the Blue: New Short Fiction From Iceland in May 2020. It's been sitting in the back of my mind ever since; my brain is not quite sure what to make of it. This is not a proper review, like I usually write, but a brief explanation of the main take-aways I got... Continue Reading →
Today I'm reviewing book three in the Librarians of Willow Hollow series: Hearts on Lonely Mountain by A.M. Heath. This is the only romance in the series, and just like the books which came before it, it is a wonderful historical fiction tale of growth and bookishness.
Happy Friday, Readers! For my library, this has been a week of clarifying and planning as we move to our next stage of re-opening next Monday. I have a feeling it's going to be a bit shaky, but at least we're talking about it ahead of time and have had a week to prepare. Although,... Continue Reading →
Happy Friday, Readers! Today we're talking about book two in the Librarians of Willow Hollow series, AKA one of my favorite things to come out of this year! I Love to Tell the Story introduces us to Lillian Sullivan, a kind young woman who leaves her dying home town of Castle Rock, Montana to tackle the challenge of being a horseback librarian in Willow Hollow, Kentucky. She's a bit older and more mature than Lena, the protagonist from the first book, and brings a dedicated perspective on Christianity and Christian love which the town has not seen.
This book released on Tuesday, August 18.
In 2019 Cecily Wolfe easily became one of my favorite new-to-me authors. I quickly read her Cliff Walk Courtships trilogy, and have been on her bandwagon ever since! That trilogy is now being made into audiobooks, giving the world a whole new way to discover these sweet, clean stories. The Cliff Walk Courtships series is... Continue Reading →
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 →
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!
