Travel Part Six: We Snowbirds Go Back to Illinois for the Summer & Fall

We safely made it back to Illinois for the summer! Once we returned, we set up our spot, quarantined, and then set about visiting a very small amount of friends and family all outside and at a distance. It was really nice to be able to catch up and spend time relaxing outside around a fire. We got a lot of fishing done, although not very productive in that we […]

“The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” by: Taylor Jenkins Reid

Read for the Tropeical Readathon prompt of read a book you previously DNF’d. Wow. I had tried multiple times over the past few years to get into this work. It wasn’t the right time. It was odd because usually when I DNF a book, it isn’t for a timing sort of purpose. Yet, this book was something that I knew I would circle back to when the time was right. […]

“Think Like a Monk” by: Jay Shetty

This book was so unbelievably insightful, humble, and satisfying! From the topics covered and the research included to the personal anecdotes included along with the use of story and quotations this book is such a valuable resource for anyone seeking how to develop the monk mindset. The pace was wonderful, however I read this in many small chunks over many days as I wanted to take in what I was […]

The creativity here was incredible! Nikki Grimes highlighted female poets during the Harlem Renaissance and created her own poetry using a method called Golden Shovel Poetry. Grimes explains that this form of poetry is to take a prominent inspirational line or lines and then craft your own poetry using those words. I have never read anything like it! The Artwork included is STUNNING. My favorite poem was by Esther Popel […]

“Tea & Treachery (Tea by the Sea Mysteries #1)” by: Vicki Delany

Confession time: I LOVE the writing style of Vicki Delany. She manages to write in such a comforting way and yes I know she writes cozy mysteries, but not ALL cozy mysteries feel like hers do. I find them extremely comforting. I adored her Sherlock Bookshop series and when I saw she had a new series coming out, oh man I did a happy dance when my request to review […]

“Mini Chibi Art Class: A Complete Course in Drawing Cuties and Beasties” by: Yoai

One of the hobbies I want to get into this year is doodling and drawing. I used to doodle all the time when I was younger and it has been years since I picked up the proverbial shading pens. This book looked like a kawaii spark to rekindle that old flame. The introduction was well written and very much encouraged trial and error. Many tools were recommended, however the author […]

“The Perfect Stranger: by: Megan Miranda

🔮 Read as part of the OWLs Magical Readathon for the Divination prompt- random number generator for your TBR. This was the lucky winner! Thankfully the random number generator chose this for me because it isn’t necessarily what I would have reached for otherwise. It is especially interesting to me because I had planned on reading this for last years OWLs, but changed to a different book instead in planning […]

“My Dark Vanessa” by: Kate Elizabeth Russell

🔮 I listened to this as part of the OWLs readathon for the Astronomy prompt of reading a book mostly at night. This book was the longest of my chosen reads for OWLs coming in at 384 pages. Most of my choices this time were around the 300 page or so mark. This one is being so hyped within the book community and I believe it is definitely deserving of […]
