Book thirty seven of my 2019 Reading Challenge. The Photography of Game of Thrones So I became a Game of Thrones fan a little later in the game than most and you can read more about that in my blog post here. I managed to get the first seven seasons finished before the eighth premiered… Continue reading Book Review: "The Photography of Game of Thrones"
Book thirty six of my 2019 Reading Challenge. Ken Liu's The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories Short stories are always great to read because they're short and a quick to finish for most readers. They let you get a taste of a story without the commitment of an entire novel. Unfortunately, for me, a book… Continue reading Book Review: "The Paper Menagerie"
Book thirty five of my 2019 Reading Challenge. Amy Poehler's Yes Please I didn't think I'd like non-fiction and biographies in particular but with this reading challenge I wanted to try some new things. Amy Poehler's biography about her life as a comedian and mom was one that I enjoyed a lot. I mean, who… Continue reading Book Review: "Yes Please"
The new year, and new decade for that matter, snuck up on me way too quickly. I feel as though this last year went by in a blink of an eye and now it's over and it's 2020. I've never been a New Year's resolutions type of person and last year I think I set… Continue reading Reflecting on a Decade, Preparing for the Next
Books twenty nine through thirty four of my 2019 Reading Challenge. J.R. Ward's The Black Dagger Brotherhood I was first introduced to J.R. Ward's world of vampires when I was in high school from that dear old bookworm of a friend that I've mentioned before. She owns all the books and let me borrow the… Continue reading Book Review: The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series (1-6)
A couple weekends ago I took a chance at a local craft fair and got a booth for some of my crocheted ornaments. I made a few mini stockings last Christmas for some small gift add-ons and gift card holders and several people thought they were really cute and suggested I make more and try… Continue reading I’m on Etsy!
Even though it is technically still fall, here in Colorado we are already in full-blown winter. It's already snowed twice and it's sticking to the ground so it's staying for the next six months. I've been a bit absent from here lately, but it's because I've been busy. So here's a wrap-up of all that… Continue reading The Short Warm Season: Summer and Fall Wrap-Up
I know I've been absent for quite some time with a post (book reviews excluded). I promise I'm working on a few new posts and I hope to get some up here soon. With that being said; if you have any ideas for posts or want to know anything in particular, let me know in… Continue reading My Pinning Addiction
Book twenty eight of my 2019 Reading Challenge. Before I get into the my most recent book review, I thought I'd let you know I've decided to lower my goal for the 2019 Goodreads Reading Challenge. Instead of reaching for the 50 book goal I will be trying to get 40 books read instead. 50… Continue reading Book Review: “Turtles All the Way Down”
Book twenty seven of my 2019 Reading Challenge. Lucy Knisley's Displacement: A Travelogue I enjoyed Knisley's first travelogue about her adventures in Europe when she was in her twenties so I thought I would look into some of her other travelogues. I was not as impressed with this graphic memoir as I was with Knisley's… Continue reading Book Review: “Displacement: A Travelogue”
Book twenty six of my 2019 Reading Challenge. Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale I have been wanting to read this book so I can start watching the series on Hulu. I knew the premise was different than the average dystopian novel, but I really liked the story and message it conveyed. Offred's character is a… Continue reading Book Review: “The Handmaid’s Tale”
Book twenty five of my 2019 Reading Challenge. Jen Campbell's Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops I'm officially halfway through my 2019 Reading Challenge! I know I'm a little behind, but I'm still confident I will finish 50 books before the year is over. To celebrate my halfway point I read a book of collected… Continue reading Book Review: “Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops”
