And the Reading Continues

Goodreads Reading Challenge 2015

  To begin, Half-Priced Books is a dangerous place. Very dangerous. I dropped by because traffic was horrible, then decided I might as well look for some Louis L’Amour books I don’t already have, and then all of a sudden, I have a basket fully from all different shelves. If anyone needs a library card for my library, let me know! Ok, now back to the regular broadcasting update: Reading Challenge 2015 UPDATE A week or two ago I recapped my year of reading thus far, or at least the last month…

I Won’t Be a Liar

Dramatic? Yes. Click-bait? Yes, guilty as charged. But now that you are here, by the end of the year, I won’t be a liar. At the beginning of 2015, I had set myself up with the lofty goal to read 30 books before the end of the year. What was a I thinking/smoking/drinking? During the first few months I read quite a bit, but then somewhere between then and a little over a month ago I forgot all about reading and was too hooked on Spotify and podcasts to look…

25 for Twenty-five

In many ways, I am still a child at heart even though I have a full-time job, live on my own, buy my own groceries and so on like an adult. I find humor in the smallest of things and at enjoy the immaturity I can don when around my younger sisters. This past week, I had a birthday. Now I am now twenty-five, and I’m not sure what to think of it. A number doesn’t have to dictate your actions or opinions; however, with this being a milestone of sorts,…

Road Trip Reads

Road Trip Reads

A number of good things came about on my trip to the mountains this past weekend. One of those was being getting back into another book. Last month while on vacation with my family, I lost myself in the pages of a book called “Hill Country,” written by Janice Woods Windle. I found myself more interested than usual in a book of this type. I wasn’t sure if it was actual interest or due to reading at such a high elevation. Nonetheless, this historical fiction novel lured me in and…

Came, Saw, Conquered

May Favorites feat image

Just a headsup, we are only a few weeks away from being halfway through 2015. How is that even possible? Does anyone not feel like time keeps flying by faster and faster? Oh the days when summer vacation seemed to last an eternity. Now a whole month flies by and in a blink. In all though, May was one heck of a month. I accomplished a lot both professionally and personally. Life has been pretty much a blast. Like I’ve said countless times, I live an extremely blessed life but…

Rain Makes for the Best Reading Time

Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan

Well, I love a rainy night I love a rainy night I love to hear the thunder Watch the lightning When it lights up the sky You know it makes me feel good Another rainy night? Could it have been just a dream? Well the ground couldn’t have lied to me, this morning, when I took Ellie out. After these past two days, I am really regretting not having my pair of rubber boots with me at the apartment. Wet feet is never a great way to start your morning.…

Kindergarten 101: Naptime & Reading Logs

A Long Time Ago

Crap! It’s the second to last day of July. Where the heck has my summer gone?!? While in college I remember realizing how fast semesters would fly by. Then later after I graduated and realized this only got worse. While in elementary, middle and high school, I wanted the time to fly by so fast. I wanted it to be summer again or I wanted to hurry up and be older. Now I realize that there is no slowing it down. However, yesterday afternoon I felt like a kindergartner again!…

**A Book to Read: Lonesome Gods**

There are some books you’ll buy/rent/borrow in your lifetime, that you just never want to finish. For me I want to know how it ends but I know I will feel so sorry to have the story be over with. These sorts of books I will never get rid of. It’s selfish, really. But I guess I am just nerdy that way. There are literally a handful of books that I have learned a lot from and enjoyed so very much I don’t want to ever part with them. The…
