First Line Friday Featuring: A Dog Like Daisy

Someone mentioned that as of September 1, the "meteorological summer" was over. That led me on a fun Google rabbit trail of the difference between meteorological and astrological seasons, but it doesn't change the fact that here in Oklahoma the temperature is still well into the 90's and the heat index is over 100 nearly...

Top 5s From My First 500 Posts

Happy Monday, Readers! WordPress has informed me that Saturday's post was my 500th post on this blog. It's hard to believe that in approximately three and a half years I've made 500 posts. To commemorate, I'd like to share a few highlights with you. 500 highlights would be a bit much, so below are 5... Continue Reading →

Tackling the TBR #25

The amount of books on my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. To address this, I write a post featuring ten books from it approximately once a week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!

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.

What Classic Ending Would You Change? // Classic Remarks Linkup

Happy Friday! I'm trying something new today and participating in the Classic Remarks linkup. The host shares a prompt relating to classic books in advance, and then you write a post or comment with your response. I have mixed feelings about classic books, but it's fun to talk about them and to hear a variety of opinions! Today's prompt is an interesting question. It really got me thinking about books I have read and disliked, and what I would change if given the chance. I've kept my post relatively brief (I don't want to bore you with all the details of my opinions today!), and I invite you to consider the following prompt and share your own answer as well:

Tackling the TBR #24: A Batch of Sweet Summery Stories?

My TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows, perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!

First Line Friday & New Release Spotlight: Discernment by Lauren H. Salisbury

Today is the first Friday in June, so it's time to participate in First Line Friday! This edition is extra fun because the book I'm highlighting is a new release I'm excited about: book 3 in Lauren Salisbury's Legacy Chronicles series. Because my summer classes also started this week, I haven't started reading this book yet, but I hope to soon! It's going to be high on my Summer TBR list, at least.

Tackling the TBR #22

Happy Monday! Today I'm taking a look at the next ten books on my TBR (to be read) list, hoping to weed out any that I no longer want to read. There's a lot of variety in this batch, so stick around and maybe you'll find something to add to your own list! Explanation: It... Continue Reading →

First Line Friday May 21, 2021 Featuring: Hope in the Time of Fear by Timothy Keller

Good Friday morning, Reader! It's crazy what a solid week of good sleep can do for you. Getting up in the morning is so much easier when I don't stay up late working on homework (or stressing about the outcome), and somehow it's so much easier to stay calm and upbeat throughout the day when...

Tackling the TBR #21

It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week.
