Spring Reads: Slightly Inspired and Moderately Good

Spring Reads: Slightly Inspired and Moderately Good

Well, if that title for this Spring Reads post didn’t just grab you by the eyeballs and pull you in, I don’t know what will! Let’s just suffice it to say that the absolute reading bender that I went on in March totally sobered up […]

Readers Suggest: 40+ Books to Read Next

Readers Suggest: 40+ Books to Read Next

When I asked you guys what I should read next, y’all came through in a big way! Let me back up a second, though… For those of you not playing the social media game with me, last week I asked my FB and IG followers […]

March Reads: Music to My Eyes

March Reads: Music to My Eyes

You guys!  I read five whole books in March!  I must admit that I’m fairly certain I won’t hit that number again any time soon, being as the end of the kids’ school year is fast approaching.  Which, as you can guess, makes this mama […]

February Reads: Only Sort of Fictional

February Reads: Only Sort of Fictional

Four books read in February!  Mama’s got her groove back, y’all! Here’s the skinny.  First, we have one that I read with my girls one chapter at a time at bedtime.  Second, there’s a story based on the very real, very disturbing Tennessee Children’s Home […]

Winter Reads: Four is Better than None

Winter Reads: Four is Better than None

Well, let’s just say that Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years interfered slightly with my reading.  I had neither the time nor the attention span to devote much energy to ingesting the written word.  I was doing too much writing! In that three-month span of November […]

October Reads: Weighty Issues

October Reads: Weighty Issues

I finished three books in October and they all were about some rather weighty material.  Literal weight in one instance, and figuratively heavy topics in the other two.  But I have to say…It has been a long time since two books in one month have […]

September Reads: Who knew I was boring?

September Reads: Who knew I was boring?

Well, friends.  It looks like I am a disgrace to the reading world.  I only made it through 1.75 books this month.  And I call myself a reader?  Sheesh. Let’s just suffice it to say that the month of September kicked my behind clear into […]

August Reads: Three Books & Some Movies for Good Measure

August Reads: Three Books & Some Movies for Good Measure

Wowza, friends.  I feel like I have consumed all the media this past month.  While I haven’t kept up with the last two months’ four-book streak, I came in with a solid three and feel like that’s pretty respectable.  I also watched some fabulous movies […]

July Reads: Crazy Rich, Jazz Age, and Beloved

July Reads: Crazy Rich, Jazz Age, and Beloved

Would you look at that?  Another month and another four books have just flown by! You’ve gotta love summer reading, don’t you?  More uninterrupted time to sink into a world that isn’t your own.  More of what you want to read and less of what […]

June Reads: 2 of Substance & 2 of Fluff

*This post contains affiliate links. Click on each book title’s heading to be directed to Amazon.* I honestly can’t remember the last month that I read 4 whole books!  I think it’s pretty much a literary phenomenon, if we’re being honest.  I’m more of one […]
