Hello, Readers! In previous seasons I have enjoyed writing and gotten a lot of engagement on posts talking about my gardening endeavors, so I thought you might be interested in an update on my indoor plants. I have a few new ones since my last Garden Chronicles post, and since it is the beginning of... Continue Reading →

Happy Tuesday! We've got a treat today: the cover reveal for Kellyn Roth's upcoming novella. Becoming Miss Knight will be set between the second and third books in The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy. I have meant to read this series ever since I started hearing about it (about two years ago, I think), but to date I have only read one of the books. I loved it though, and I am sure I would enjoy the rest of the series if I ever got around to it, too!
It's finally time for my first full book review of the year, featuring the last book I read in 2020! To be honest, I only read Where'd You Go, Bernadette because I heard part of it was set on Antarctica and I still hadn't marked that continent off my reading challenge. Also, since I knew...

I love Yarn Along days! I have a few little things to share this time. Mostly, I've made small things out of leftover yarn in an attempt to clean out my stash so that I can buy new yarn for my next projects (which I am currently planning and getting very excited about!).
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!
Happy New Year, Readers! If you celebrated or are celebrating today, I hope you have a wonderful and safe time! I'm starting the year out with a double linkup post: today I am linking up with Hoarding Books for First Line Friday and with Elza Kinde for the #NewYearsReads2021 linkup. This challenge has different photo prompts and questions to answer each day. I don't think I will answer all of them, but I plan to work in a few.
It's finally here - the last day of 2020. I know a lot of people are really looking forward to today and the year that starts tomorrow, but honestly, I don't have strong feelings about it. I'm excited to start working on new goals and to see what the year brings, though. But before we can start working on next year's plans, it's time to wrap up this month and the Literary Christmas Reading Challenge.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and weekend, Readers! It certainly was an abnormal Christmas, but I still made memories that I will cherish forever, and I hope you did, too. From a virtual Secret Santa party with friends from college to a socially-distanced Christmas Eve service to relaxing on my own birthday, it's been a full and meaningful season to me, regardless of the craziness.
