Burdy by Karen Spears Zacharias 

4 out of 5 “forgiveness requires context, while judgement rarely takes context into consideration.” This is not normally a book I would pick for myself, but I read it for my book club chapter of the Pulpwood Queens. Not a favorite, but I still give it 4 stars for several reasons. Sequel to Mother of…

Howl’s Moving Castle (Howl’s Castle #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

“It seems as if those with high ability cannot resist some extra, dangerous stroke of cleverness, which results in a fatal flaw and begins a slow decline to evil.”  This book has been on my “to read” list for a really long time. Thanks to my amazing boyfriend, I was able to buy it on…

The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

This book was another one of those instances where I saw the movie first and didnt realize for a long time that it was originally a book. (All good movies usually are!) Since I am saving money to move, I haven’t bought any new books recently. (Gasp!) So, I’ve been utilizing my local library and…

The Splintered Series by A.G. Howard

​Splintered Unhinged Ensnared Untamed (novella) When I picked up this book, I have to admit, it was because the cover caught my eye. I didn’t know any information about it, but since it was a bargain book at BAM and the blurb on the back cover spiked my interest, I decided to take it home…

Wintersong (Wintersong #1) by S. Jae Jones

“A candle unused is nothing but wax and wick… I would rather light the flame, knowing it will go out, than sit forever in darkness.”  This. Omg. This was the best stand alone book I have read in a while. (Assuming it is a stand-alone) Beautifully written and I could hardly put it down! Wonderful…

Where the Heart Is by Billy Letts

You know that feeling you have when you finish a book, close it with a smile on your face, and you take a deep breath? That’s the feeling I had when I finished this book. I loved that is was so different from my normal reading choices. Like most people, I tend to gravitate towards…

Im back!

Hello everyone! Last year around the first of October, I left my page to spend more time with my family and wonderful boyfriend (Who is now a U.S. Marine! *swoon*) There was a lot going on at that time and I really wanted to be a part of it all. Also, I felt like this…

Taking my leave.

Ladies and Gentleman,  Due to some recent news, I will be taking some time away from my site to spend time with my family and loving boyfriend.  I wont lie, times are hard. I hate that I am leaving in the middle of a challenge that I set for myself, but you can’t pick when…
