What I’m Reading {September 2016}

Y'all, my book stack is HUGE. Seriously. But so many of my friends are writing so many great books ... and I want to tell you all about all of them. But then all I'd be talking about is books and while I love books, I also have other things I want to share with you so these posts are my way of giving you information about what I'm reading and what books I think you'd love. {Also, that was seriously a crazy run-on sentence. ha!} So, here the books I'm working my way through in September. {The ...

What I’m Reading {June2016}

  What happens to a girl who loves to read when her life has been full of end of school activities, writing projects, and no down time? She gets cranky, that's what! Until she remembers it's June ... which means VACATION and time to read all those books stacked up on her nightstand {well, a few of them anyway ... let's be honest, that TBR stack is a little like Mt. Everest}. Included on my June reading list is some fiction guaranteed to be so engrossing, you won't even be able to ... [Read More]

What I’m Reading {August 2015}

I read. A lot. And I am not exceptionally good at keeping my Book List up-t0-date. {understatement} Also, I don't put books I'm re-reading or most fiction books on the list anyway ... so it's never 100% accurate. I never read just one book at a time.  Emily Freeman and Shelly Miller have both written beautiful posts lately about why they read multiple books simultaneously.  And my head nodded in agreement with the words each of them shared. Also, I have found that I need different types of ... [Read More]

Best Books of 2014

I'm not sure why I didn't read as many books as normal this year ... or if I just didn't do a good job of keeping track of what I read.  I know I re-read several books {like The Hunger Games trilogy} and I didn't add them to my 2014 reading list. Nonetheless, of the almost 100 books I did keep track of, here are my favorites: Home by Julie Andrews. If you love The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins and The Princess Diaries, you must read this biography.  Written with charm and fondness, Julie ... [Read More]
