Last week, I participated in my first Top Ten Tuesday and had so much fun, I've decided to come back for me! Today's topic is the very meta topic of books about books. I adore books about books and bookstores. I find them charming. They're usually easy, light reads. Not always, but often. I love … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday : Books About Books and Bookstores
Happy Tuesday! This week (we'll see what happens next week) I'm hopping on the #TopTenTuesday bandwagon. Since I spend my entire life at school, it seems only appropriate to talk about my top ten books on school required reading lists. I've chosen books from all levels of education, elementary school through college. All of these books … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Required Reading
Today is a beautiful and wonderful day! Today, I am happy to be celebrating Easter and The Resurrection with my family. There is nothing better than celebrating with my family. March was a much kinder month to me than January or February proved to be (old-man back notwithstanding). I read some really great books, starting … Continue reading Happy April
This weekend, I spent a few hours with a good book, a few cups of tea, and a warm blanket. This kind of ultimate relaxation is rare for me; I work the equivalent of two jobs and I'm usually too ADHD to sit still and read a book straight through for any length of time. … Continue reading Review – The Mothers by Brit Bennett

I had recently "changed my membership" from one library branch to another and was excited to see my new branch was reading Hidden Figures: The American … Continue reading The Magical Librarian
This weekend, I had the immense pleasure of turning 30 and then immediately throwing out my back. It was exactly as much fun as you can imagine. Lying on the couch with no WiFi for hours on end until the repairman could come out. Staring into the void and pondering life's great questions: Why are … Continue reading Review – Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire
So, February came and went much faster than I anticipated. January lasted exactly seven years and thirteen days. And February lasted six minutes and forty-three seconds. I'm not sure how that happens, but I blame flat earth, aliens, chem trails, and MK Ultra. So today starts March, and with March comes my new monthly thing. … Continue reading Happy March!
My Facebook memories reminded me of this photo I uploaded five years ago. (How could this possibly have been five years ago?) The best part of this memory is that it reminded me of the discovery of one of my favorite books I've ever read. This particular book opened my eyes to a world I … Continue reading Review – Every Day by David Levithan
This year I took part in the 2017 Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge. In fact, I took on the challenge of completing both lists, which was a stretch for me. Somehow, blessedly, I finished both lists and feel like a rockstar for it. This year, it seems there's only the one list and I can't wait to start figuring out which books I'm going to select for this list.
[D]ear books, it's not you. It's me.
