Today's post was originally going to be part of First Line Friday, but at the last minute I decided that instead I want to share some of the good, encouraging, or fun things that I came across this week.
#6DegreesofSeparation is 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).
Today's post was originally supposed to be a collection of mini reviews of Christmas books I've read. However, I'm running short on time today (and honestly didn't end up completing as many Christmas books as I originally hoped), so instead of reviewing I'm just going to feature 5 favorite Christmas-themed books I have read in the past and 1 current Christmassy read that I am pretty sure will become a new favorite. These are all books I highly recommend and would give a 4 or 5 star review.
Day 9 of 12 Days of Christmas 2021! Last year I made a post talking about my Top 5 Christmas Movies, so this year I'm tackling the same topic from a slightly different angle. This time I am specifically sharing my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies.
Hello, Reader! In honor of (American) Thanksgiving being this week, I am going to share a few posts about books that I am thankful to have read. Today's post kicks this off with 5 books I am thankful I read as a child. These were some of my favorite books growing up and played a significant role in shaping how I look at the world. With as much time as I have spent this semester reading and talking about the newest children's books, I have enjoyed taking a little time to think about the books from my own childhood. I hope you enjoy reading along, too!

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 →
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...

Happy Wednesday! Today's post isn't entirely bookish. I will talk about a few of my favorite books that I read this summer, but mostly this post is to share a list of the things that made this summer good. It can be easy to get caught up in the hard or disheartening things, and I... Continue Reading →
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 →
