Spell The Month in Books // January 2021

Hello, Reader! Today I'm back with another Spell the Month in Books. Starting next month, I'm going to experiment with making Spell the Month a formal linkup, so if you have enjoyed these posts and are considering writing your own, keep an eye out! I still have a couple different hosting platforms to research, but... Continue Reading →

Tackling the TBR #16

I didn't realize when I drafted this post that it would go out on MLK Day. While I don't have an entire worthy tribute in me, I do want to take a minute to acknowledge this day before moving on to the bulk of my post. In the midst of the current political chaos, it is comforting to read and remember the hopeful words of Dr. King. Perhaps someday we will get closer to his dream.ย 

First Line Friday // January 15, 2020 Featuring Eubeltic Quest by Nadine C. Keels

What a week! After ten days off, being back at work this week has been a strange combination of relaxing and chaotic. For the most part, things have actually gone very smoothly. It has still been a tiring, though, and I know that isn't going to change anytime soon! My classes start back next week,... Continue Reading →

First Line Friday // January 1, 2021 Featuring My Most Read Author of 2020

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.

Wrapping Up A Literary Christmas, December 2020

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.

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.

Spell the Month in Books // November 2020 + Update!

Hello and welcome to November's Spell the Month in Books post! For this challenge, use the first letter of each book title to spell the current month (skipping articles such as A or The). Some months I try to use a certain genre, cover color, or type of book. Since this month has the daunting letter V, I'm just going to go the classic route and use books I have read and enjoyed.

Spell the Month in Books // October 2020 Virtual Bookstack

Good Monday morning, Readers! October is flying by for me; how is it going for you? I'm halfway through my classes for this semester. They're going pretty well; the weekly readings and assignments are easy and usually interesting, though the larger projects are definitely challenging. It's enjoyable to see how what I am learning in class maps onto my current job in the library, and to learn more of the pieces for how everything works together.

Book Review & Blog Tour: Hearts on Lonely Mountain by A.M. Heath

Today I'm reviewing book three in the Librarians of Willow Hollow series: Hearts on Lonely Mountain by A.M. Heath. This is the only romance in the series, and just like the books which came before it, it is a wonderful historical fiction tale of growth and bookishness.

New Release Blog Tour & Book Review: I Love to Tell the Story by Faith Blum

Happy Friday, Readers! Today we're talking about book two in the Librarians of Willow Hollow series, AKA one of my favorite things to come out of this year!ย I Love to Tell the Story introduces us to Lillian Sullivan, a kind young woman who leaves her dying home town of Castle Rock, Montana to tackle the challenge of being a horseback librarian in Willow Hollow, Kentucky. She's a bit older and more mature than Lena, the protagonist from the first book, and brings a dedicated perspective on Christianity and Christian love which the town has not seen.

This book released on Tuesday, August 18.
