July Anticipated Releases

July Anticipated Releases

There are more options this month, that’s a plus, right? I’m starting to see a trend in the books I pick, a mix of Teen and Adult but generally with darker or fantastical themes…. People are going to start thinking I’ve got something against romance […]

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

One of my anticipated new releases, One Of Us Is Lying does not disappoint. It is a fun teen read that truly pays homage to The Breakfast Club. Beyond the detention and the stereotypical teen characters, there are little nods here and there to the movie […]

Umberland by Wendy Spinale

Umberland by Wendy Spinale

*sigh* Umberland is such a disappointment. I’m a HUGE fan of Alice in Wonderland. Anybody who’s met me, read my blog, or followed me on social media can probably guess I hold more than a small space in my heart for Alice and her friends. […]

The Weight of Lies by Emily Carpenter

The Weight of Lies by Emily Carpenter

The Weight of Lies landed on my anticipated new release list and I’m glad it did. Hurt and angry, poor-little-rich-girl Megan seeks to exact revenge on her absentee mother. But Megan’s mom isn’t just anybody, she’s novelist darling Frances Ashley whose novel, Kitten, made her […]

The Night Ocean by Paul La Farge

The Night Ocean by Paul La Farge

The Night Ocean starts out with a disappearance and manages to suck you right in. Admittedly, there were parts that dragged a bit for me, simply because I grew weary of one particular character but I think it’s just a “me” thing. Character development is […]

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day!

I’m lucky. My parents are alive and quite healthy. They’re involved in my life and my kids’ lives. I talk to my Mom almost every day. But, it’s Father’s Day and I want to take the time to thank my Dad for being the best […]

Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

What a disappointment Spindle Fire turned out to be. I’ve always been a fan of Sleeping Beauty and I’ve enjoyed other renditions but this was terrible. I’m not sure I can give it more than a star. I don’t know. The concept of princesses having some […]

Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans

Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans

A friend (also a creative spirit *Hi Selah*) suggested Designing Your Life to me a little while ago. I finally got around to reading it and working through the process of designing MY life. I won’t go into the details because it is private, but I’ve […]

The Black Witch by Laurie Forest

The Black Witch by Laurie Forest

I don’t even know where to begin with The Black Witch. It sort of makes me feel like a mean girl. I finished this book last night, stayed up until 1am to do so, and I’m mad at myself for doing so. What a waste of […]

Happy Golden Birthday to Maddox

Happy Golden Birthday to Maddox

Maddox (a.k.a. Sox) turns 11 years old today making this his Golden Birthday. I’m so proud of this kid and so pleased to celebrate him today! He’s a good sleeper. This kid slept through the night at just four weeks! He loves naps and snuggling […]
