“Rogues” Anthology Edited by: George R.R. Martin

It took me a month and ten days to finish it, but by golly guys I did it! Let’s chat about how I came to my 4 star rating and then get into each one on its own: There were 21 stories collected here. Each with a possibility of being rated at 5 stars. That totaled to 105 as the max amount possible. My rating wound up with 91 out […]

Yes! Kenji POV!!! YAY!!! ♡ I preordered this the *day* that I heard about it and was able to. I knew the release was coming up and then bam! It comes in!! Read in one sitting.

“The Path Made Clear: Discovering Your Life’s Direction and Purpose” by: Oprah Winfrey

It is not often that I get literal chills upon finishing a book. I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Oprah Winfrey herself as well as those whom speak during, and I gotta tell you…the way the epilogue ended? Chills. There are universal truths that we can all relate to. We are all seeking something. We are all trying to find something. That truth, that knowing? It is (and always […]

“You Deserve It” by: Josh Wagner

I have been on a nonfiction, better ones-self kick lately when it comes to reading. When I was able to aquire the e-arc from Netgalley on this one I was very excited to jump straight in! There were some very good takeaways here. Especially worth reading for anyone struggling with a sense of not deserving good things in their lives…and who doesn’t have that thought? Sometimes we all struggle to […]

Author Spotlight: Ruth Ware

I have read all five of Ruth Ware’s published novels and instead of doing the reviews individually, I am combining them all into one lovely post. As I read them at different times, and out of their publication order, I reference obviously different moments of time throughout. I wanted to keep it that way as the original posts because it adds to the charm I think of the times that […]

The Old Testament

At the beginning of the year, I decided to read through the entire Old Testament of the bible. I wanted to take on a “big reading challenge” for myself. I recently finished. As I was going through, I made notes and impressions as I read so I could review each book. There are 66 books in the bible and 39 of them are from the Old Testament. The version that […]

Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy by: Kevin Kwan

This entire series was such a great, exhilarating, insane ride! I listened to the audiobooks for all three of these and would HIGHLY recommend consuming in this format. Beyond the great voice acting, we also had the footnotes-which there were aplenty-whispered. Yes, whispered! They were done as a a sort of “gossip” aside and it fit in so well with the entire theme of the series! Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy […]

“Becoming” by: Michelle Obama

I listened to the audiobook read by Michelle Obama. I always try to do that when I can so I can hear the voice of the author. Hear her speak her own written words in her own words. Michelle Obama never asked to be FLOTUS. She wasn’t trying to be. That’s how life happened though and she handled that change and transition with grace. I didn’t agree with some of […]

Rereading Past Favorites #2: Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

I am going through and rereading some of my old favorite series to see if they have stood the test of time for me. I am and have been since prior to the release of book 4, a Harry Potter fan. I used to attend Festival 9 and 3/4 when they used to hold it in Princeton, IL. I have seen all the movies, but obviously the movies don’t go […]
