So I've decided to launch myself off of WWW Wednesday, a bookish meme run by Sam@Taking on a World … Continue reading First, Middle, and Last Impressions – September 15, 2021

Why I Don’t Read Outside of My Comfort Zone

It's called a comfort zone for a reason. It's my happy place, the place I go to in order to retreat from the world and the chaos of my household. With children constantly flinging questions at me literally from the time they wake up at 6 something in the morning until bedtime at 8 at … Continue reading Why I Don’t Read Outside of My Comfort Zone

WWW Wednesday – April 28, 2021

WWW Wednesday is a bookish meme run by Sam@Taking on a World of Words. It asks: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?

What I Learned After Reading 3 Mysteries Set in the UK

I'm a huge fan of fantasy, but I also enjoy a handful of other genres. Like mysteries and thrillers. My absolute favorite book series for the past 15 years has been a cozy mystery series, The Coffeehouse Mystery series by Cleo Coyle, which is kind of funny because I don't even drink or like coffee. Anyways, … Continue reading What I Learned After Reading 3 Mysteries Set in the UK

Dropping Unannounced Into the Middle of a Book Series
