Two years ago I fell into the black hole of hype around The Cruel Prince. I bought all the special editions, the merch, and sat at my computer filled with anxiety with my fingers furiously refreshing while I waited for book boxes to go on sale. As with thousands of others, I was thrilled with … Continue reading Disillusioned: losing the love of a series

This year was my first experience with The Broke and the Bookish Secret Santa hosted by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl so I wanted to share my experience. I have been burned before by gift exchanges: I once did one in a mom group for Mother's Day and was sent an expired sheet … Continue reading My experience with #TBTBSanta
Happy Friday!! I have been meaning to do this post for a while, but got sucked into a maelstrom of chaos at work the last couple weeks so my brain was not keen on working any over time. Now that work has settled a little, here are some updates and some mini-reviews of books that … Continue reading Updates! Reviews! TGIF!
I, like most bookworms, love the library. I have a tendency to ramble - tldr; you can get non-resident library cards (for a fee). Scroll toward the bottom to get more details and skip the drama 😉 When I was in middle school I used to stop at the public library on my way home … Continue reading Let’s talk: Non- Resident Library Cards
Mia Sheridan is on my short list of "always buy" authors. Archer's Voice is one of my favorite books of all time and I have yet to read something of hers I didn't enjoy. When I got this e-mail last night about her upcoming release I immediately added it to my TBR so I wanted … Continue reading Upcoming Release – Where the Blame Lies

I have always been open with my struggles with depression, anxiety, and being on the Bipolar Disorder spectrum. One particular anxiety I have that deeply affects how I live my life is something that seems so simple to people who do … Continue reading Off-topic ramblings 7.24.19
I know it isn't the end of February yet, but since I've been MIA for a couple weeks I figured I'd go ahead and post today. First, where I've been: the Flu. UGH. My youngest son got it a couple weeks ago and then I caught it from him. I've never had the actual flu … Continue reading February wrap-up and updates
New year, new me! haha j/k. It's been a while since I posted though so I thought I'd give an update. Life has been bananas for me lately, and is (hopefully) about to get even more crazy. I'm in the process of applying to Grad School! I think I have a pretty good shot at … Continue reading New Year!
New Baby This post has been a long time coming. I have been on blog hiatus for what seems like forever, but officially since January 17th, which is when my third son was born. He is precious and beautiful and such a wonderful addition to our family. Isn't he a doll? I threw that … Continue reading New Year, New Baby, and New Goals
I used to be the person that never put books down. I would trudge through a book and wallow in despair about how much time I wasted, but about 2 years ago I started to "DNF" books. I still give every book a valiant effort and don't put an arbitrary number (100 pages, 25%, etc.) … Continue reading When to Put the Book Down
