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.

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!
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.
Today's book takes us to several places in West Africa which I do not think I have ever read about before. To my surprise and delight, I learned several tidbits of history along with following the author's journey. This is the most enjoyable travelogue I have read; read on for my full review.
