Parenting is Hard. Especially For These Characters.

This month, every book I have read so far has had parenting involved somehow. I didn't plan it that way. Around book 4, I just happened to notice a theme. Whether it be literary fiction, a domestic thriller, or an amazing beach read- all involved parents or being parents at some point in the book,... Continue Reading →


Busy Moms Can Read Too

Aside from book recommendations, the thing I get asked the most is, "How do you find the time to read so much?" I am a working mom and wife. I work 40 hours a week. Then the mom stuff comes after that and of course, there's the weekends. It never ends. I have two girls,... Continue Reading →

April & May & Reviews. Oh my!

This is why I hesitated to start a blog. I'm no good at it. These past couple months I was either too busy to write or couldn't think of anything to write about. I mean, I could in all honesty just share my book reviews I suppose. More on that later. I actually read a... Continue Reading →

I’ll Be Your Blue Sky – Review & an Ode to Marisa de los Santos

I’ll Be Your Blue Sky is the third in a series and I didn’t even realize it. This is great and I’ll tell you why. Marisa de los Santos writes amazing stories and Blue Sky is no different.

Not That I Could Tell- Review

OK. So. It is rare that a book can surprise me. I’ve read so much that I can kinda tell where a book is going to go. Really. That’s not to say anything negative of a book. I still thoroughly enjoy reading them all. I just thought I had this book pegged. Oh, was I... Continue Reading →

The Family Next Door

Oh, how I've been lucky with books already this year. I am a longtime fan of Sally’s books and The Family Next Door does not disappoint. A tale of the families of Pleasant Court, Hepworth lets you in to the seemingly ‘pleasant’ lives of all its residents. Essie and Fran have new babies, Ange is... Continue Reading →

Woman Last Seen in Her 30s

Sometimes a book is just good for the soul. Woman Last Seen is a fantastic book for a woman of any age. I posted my review a while ago on Goodreads: As soon as I started reading it, I knew. You will see a part of yourself in Maggie. No matter your age. Having what... Continue Reading →

I over packed. Books. Again.

I went on a business trip to Houston and I took a lot of books.   Notice how I said business trip. I went to Houston for 5 days and packed 2 physical books, received another physical book while I was there, and of course also packed my kindle for backup. Don't even ask how many books... Continue Reading →
