All Around the Blogosphere Tag

Welcome to Friday, Reader! Remember a few posts back when I mentioned that Oklahoma actually seemed to be following the calendar, and things were cooling down like fall is supposed to? This week we decided to go back to Spring! Which honestly isn't that surprising. Tornado sirens before dawn, on the other hand, are surprising.... Continue Reading →

Spell the Month in Books September Linkup 2021

September is an awfully long month to spell in books - do you think we'll make it this time, Reader? I have faith. My life is almost entirely taken up with children's literature and research planning at the moment, so I don't have a long intro for today's post. I'm basically just popping up for...

6 Degrees of Separation: From Hollywood to Southern France

Today's post participates in #6DegreesofSeparation hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest. The gist is that everyone starts with the same book, then finds another book that relates to it somehow, then one that relates to the second, until you’ve got a chain of six additional books. It’s a twist on the theory that every person on earth can somehow be connected to any other person in six or fewer steps, and provides an opportunity to talk about random books we love (or don’t).

6 Degrees of Separation: from Older Nonfiction to a New Middle-Grade Adventure

Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag

July in Oklahoma doesn't usually come with high humidity. But this is 2021, so just about anything that can happen apparently will, including humidity levels so high that even indoors it is having an impact on our books. I'm pretty sure that in June we got more rain than every other June of my life combined, and even though the temperatures are finally climbing close to their normal range for this time of year, we are not as dry as usual. If the northwest would like to send the 100+ temperatures back down to us, I wouldn't be opposed as long as it moved the humidity along and made the air feel less heavy.

6 Degrees of Separation: from Beezus & Ramona to Live Without You

Happy Monday! Reader, I just had the best three-day weekend. I didn't do anything exceptional; the most ambitious thing I did was get a haircut (for the first time in approximately three years). Most of the time was spent on things like filling out my taxes, bleaching my shower, and cooking. But it was so... Continue Reading →

The Selena Gomez Book Tag

How about something different this Monday? I was tagged by Books with Brogan back in February to do the Selena Gomez book tag. I'll admit I'm not a huge Selena Gomez fan, but this tag looks like fun! The Rules Thank the person who tagged you and leave a link to their blog - Thanks,... Continue Reading →

Would You Rather: Fictional Grab Bag Book Tag

I saw this fun book tag on Katie's Cottage Books, and I believe it was created by Write On Cordy. This looks like a perfect activity for a frigid, snowy, stay-inside-and-read kind of day! It snowed all day yesterday, and it is all actually sticking. Grab a warm cup and join me in contemplating these... Continue Reading →

#NewYearsReads2021 Day 4 – Book Spine Poetry

How do you feel about poetry, Readers? If you're not a fan, don't click away yet - this post isn't ALL about poetry, but it does play a part. Today's photo prompt in Elza Kinde's #NewYearsReads2021 challenge is "Book Spine Poetry." I love seeing favorite book titles used to make something new and fun! I've seen this a few times before on Instagram (more specifically, bookstagram), but I have never given it a shot myself. But, I decided this time I would try. I had a blast searching through my shelves for inspiration and the best lines, and I am happy with what I came up with. I ended up making two little "poems," and I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I am going to share them both Let me know what you think in the comment section!
