August Reads: Simply Miraculous

August Reads: Simply Miraculous

It’s time for some August Reads, friends!  Now, let’s be honest.  Some months are better than others when it comes to the quality of books I read.  Sometimes I share with you nothing but a rash of historical fiction.  Sometimes, I’ll even admit to starting […]

July Reads: Two Heavy Hitters

July Reads: Two Heavy Hitters

Only two books on the July Reads list?  Say it isn’t so!  Yes, friends.  I only got around to reading two books this month, but they were both heavy hitters in their own rights.  One was an historical fiction novel that’s on all the must-read […]

June Reads: Good, Old-fashioned Summer Reading

June Reads: Good, Old-fashioned Summer Reading

It’s June.  It’s summer.  And, boy, did I read a lot of books that scratched that “summer reading” itch!  All fiction, mostly historical, these books either teetered on the edge of racy or dove headlong into it.  They also all had some sort of mystery […]

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 […]

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 […]
