MCPL Winter Reading Challenge

It’s been a hot second since I’ve posted anything about books. I assure you, that does NOT mean I have not been reading! This is my second year entering the contest and I love it. The Facebook group is great, I loved seeing everyone’s posts about what they were reading. I definitely added A LOT…

What I Am Reading

It’s cold and rainy here, so I’ve lit all my candles, poured myself some whiskey, and am going to escape to the 14th century Highlands (where they have surprisingly modern hygiene standards and feminist ideals! 😂) Originally, my GoodReads Reading Challenge was to finish 20 books. It’s April 14 and I’ve already met my goal,…

The Face

The face you make when you’re trying to sleep in a bit because you stayed up all night reading (again!!), but they start using a chainsaw next door, followed by a loud all-male gossip session practically outside your window.

That’s what happens!

Guess what happens when you fall asleep reading on the couch while simultaneously cuddling with your pup, who also falls asleep but he wakes before you and realizes we missed dinner? He puts all his weight on your face and uses it as a launch pad before letting out an “I’m dying because you’re starving…

What I am Reading

I’m pretty proud of myself! Since finishing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in September, I’ve actually made good on my promise to finish the entire Harry Potter series before December 31. I’m almost 25% into the last book and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! Even more amazing is that I’ve exceeded my 2019 Reading…

There’s a first time for everything!

And this time is the first time I’ve completed a GoodReads Reading Challenge. Not only that, I completed it with 3.5 months to spare. Do you know what that means?! After years of barely hitting the double digits of books read per y ear, I may actually hit 20 books before 2020! Woohoo! How are…

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

I thoroughly enjoyed Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. I could hardly put it down! In fact, most nights I had to force myself to stop reading so I could get a full night’s sleep. I read a handful of reviews before I finished reading the play. The 1 and 2 star reviews are unfair,…

What I Am Reading

Easing into this overcast Sunday with a heart wrenching true story of a murder conspiracy in 1920’s Oklahoma. I also recommend the “Osage Tribal Murders” documentary on Amazon Prime; same story but with archive footage, interviews, and more photos.

Interred With Their Bones

I couldn’t put the book down! The story was fast paced and engaging. The characters were believable and though I foresaw one twist, I was genuinely surprised by the others. The reviews I read lambasting the novel for not being historically accurate are unfair, I think. The book clearly identifies itself as a novel and…

What I Am Reading

Easing into Saturday with a Shakespeare Conspiracy Theory! I’m 75% done and am at that agonizing crossroads—desperate to find out how it ends while also hoping it never does! I highly recommend. This is a fast paced novel, shifting between modern day and the early 17th century. It reminds me of everything I loved about…
