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).
According to Goodreads, I am two books behind schedule for the amount of books I said I want to read this year. The end of June means we're halfway through the year, and ought to be at least halfway to any year-long reading goals set in January. Are you close to your goals, reading or otherwise?
We're starting this week off with a double feature: a combined review of two books, Meg & Jo and Beth & Amy which make up the March Sisters duology by Virginia Kantra.
I have an exciting book to share with you today! If you saw my June TBR & Goals post or if you've followed Reviews From the Stacks for a few years, you may know that June is time for the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge hosted by Tarissa of In the Bookcase and that I love this month-long reading challenge! There are so many good books by, about, or otherwise related to Louisa May Alcott. This challenge is the perfect push to read them for myself and a way to read about similar books that others are reading and enjoying (or not enjoying).
Do I dare try to set a TBR list for this month? Usually, my reading picks up a bit with the summer, but this year I actually don't anticipate spending any more time reading than I did in the first half of the year. I've never taken classes over the summer before (except for one... Continue Reading →

I have a few new ones since my last Garden Chronicles post, and since it is the beginning of... Continue Reading →
Today I'm taking part in Nonfiction November! This is a month-long blog event co-hosted by four bloggers focused on the best nonfiction books.
I love the Annie Moses Band. Their music is just phenomenal! They're most well-known for their Christmas music, but I love their other music as well. As we're nearly halfway through Summer, this seemed an ideal time to share this song with y'all! For the same reason, it's time for me to check in on... Continue Reading →
It's time for a few quick and light book recommendations! Today I'm creating a virtual stack of books, each starting with a letter to spell out June. Each of these is a book that I have read, enjoyed, and gotten something meaningful out of, and I hope that one might catch your eye! This month's... Continue Reading →
Short-term reading challenges are a wonderful tool for helping readers stay on track with reading goals, tackle difficult books, and just have fun. With that in mind, I am taking on three reading challenges this summer. Two of these challenges are hosted by other book bloggers I follow, and the third is my local library's... Continue Reading →
