I love history. I love the solid facts that come from studying history. I love learning about people who actually lived and breathed and did fantastic things during their lifetime. That’s why I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting and detailed and full of incredible stories from the Second World War. I hadn’t really studied much on Patton as a person, and I like to think that I learned […]

That Jessica Fletcher. She really is goals. I’m not going to give a full review of this book because I will be reading the entire series, so I don’t want to get too repetitive in my reviews. This will be an example of my mini reviews to come. But I did want to mention a few things before my mini review begins. First, it was such a great start to […]

Believe it or not, I have never read a J.R.R. Tolkien book. *gasp* I know. It’s quite unfortunate. But I fully intend to change that this year. Sadly, I think my library had the wrong audiobook available. It was the BBC Radio Dramatization made in like the 60’s, so it didn’t really include much except dialogue and sound effects. It was lacking, I’m sure, the actual book portions…if that makes […]

Murder Past Due

Review I liked the cat…and the overall feel of a cozy mystery. That’s about it. The Good Stuff Guys, I want a cat like Diesel real bad! I kind of already have one, but I’d like another, please! Thanks! Okay, I liked the small-town feel and the entire idea of an archivist as the main character. Those things made the book. The Not-So-Good-Stuff The dialogue….I get that it is based […]

Reading Habits Book Tag

In an effort to allow everyone to get to know me a bit better, I thought this was an excellent first tag for the blog. I tag anyone who wants to do it! This tag was created by TheBookJazz! Find her video here. 1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading? I like to read either on my couch or on my bed. Usually laying on a pile […]

The Woman in Cabin 10

Review Gripping, yet easy to figure out. A lot of people have compared this book to Gone Girl , The Girl on the Train , and even the book jacket speaks comparatively to Agatha Christie’s works. I can see where they’re coming from, but it’s a bit far-fetched for each comparison. Yeah, there’s a lot of twist and turns, red herrings, and some thrills. But they were a bit weak for me. The Good […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Review This was just as peculiar, albeit less entertaining as I would have hoped. I love the entire premise of this book. The idea of taking a strange collection of photographs and stitching together a fantasy story is awesome. As an aspiring amateur writer, it makes me want to go out and gather as many pictures as I can and work out my own crazy story. The Good Stuff  Obviously the […]

Review This was an excellent book to start the New Year. I really couldn’t have read this at a better time, having made a huge decision myself for my career. I really think it helped me realize exactly what I wanted to do, and how I wanted to do it. So that’s a big positive. I love reading books that make me put it down for a second and urge […]

2nd Time Around

Hello, dear friends! Has anyone ever started a blog, gave up, and then decided to get back into it? It’s quite a journey, is it not? The excitement of first starting out, the confusion of trying to figure out how everything works, the depression when you realize that nobody is really reading anything you’re writing, and then the decision to quit. So you stop blogging and think, “man, I have […]
