First Line Friday Featuring: Wildlife According to Og the Frog

Happy Friday and first day of October! If you're viewing this post in your email or the WordPress Reader, I hope you'll stop by the blog itself at least briefly to see the seasonal banner I put up. I had a lot of fun making a handful of seasonal banners last year during some of... Continue Reading →

Library Loot // May 19, 2021

Within a week of the end of my Spring semester I had nearly an unreasonable amount of materials checked out from the library. A large portion, however, were cookbooks or gardening books which I flipped through and soon returned (or at least set in a pile to return a few at a time, so as... Continue Reading →

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. 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!

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 →

Wrapping Up February 2021

What a wild month February has been! For me, most of it was spent at home, staying warm and watching the snow. A few good books came my way, too. Read on for the details!

12 Days of Christmas Day 9: Battle of the Christmas Book Covers

I recently saw another blogger do this kind of post, and for the life of me I now can't figure out who it was! Basically, you share images of the covers of different editions of books and say which one you like best. Since Christmas books tend to have some of the most beautiful covers, I thought it would be fun to see so many cozy covers in one post!

Christmas Mini Book Review: The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson

Happy first day of winter! Usually, Oklahoma is a little slow on the uptake about season changes, but this year we got winter early (and I am not complaining). It has definitely helped me get into the Christmas spirit. 

Book Review: Faithful in Love by Cecily K. Wolfe

Happy Friday! Today's review is by one of my favorite indie historical fiction authors. This story is sweet and heartwarming, but has a bit of grit to it, too. The characters, setting, and themes are so well done that they are almost tangible. You're going to want to add this one to your reading list for when life has you down, injustice seems rampant, and you just need something safe and cheerful to read.

Book Review: Song for a Whale by Lynne Kelly

Happy Friday! Today's review is another fairly impressive middle-grade book that I read toward the end of 2019. Song for a Whale features a deaf protagonist, a boatload of science, and, of course, a whale. About the Book Title: Song for a Whale Author: Lynne Kelly Genre: Middle Grade Contemporary Fiction Publication Date: February 5, 2019 Synopsis:... Continue Reading →

Final Christmas Book Review of the Season: Featuring Sincerely, Jem by Kate Willis

Happy Monday! I'm switching things up a little this week and starting with a review that I am very excited to write! I first heard about today's book a few months ago, when it was announced that it would be available in a limited-time Christmas anthology. I really wanted to read this anthology, but I...
