8 Books To Read This Summer

8 Books to Read This Summer - sheerheart.org

Last night I sat down to try to figure out what the heck I am going to read this summer. You’re going to find only eight books on this list. There is the potential to read more than eight, but this list is realistic. Because I know there is a good chance I am going to find myself stuck in a Sackett book or one of the many Baldacci counterparts to the series I have already started. To begin, do you ever catch yourself buying a book solely because the…

May Favorites

May Favorites

Four days into June, I’m having a hard time remembering what I even did in May! But nonetheless, I did have some May Favorites to share with you. Favorite Book P.S. I just checked, and I am apparently three books ahead of schedule on my Goodreads Reading Challenge! Woohoo! Reading books like The Last Mile by David Baldacci, makes it pretty darn easy to read. As I have said before, Baldacci is a special author. Between his memorable, likable characters and the way he details each scene, his books are absorbing.…

Hot Reads 2017 – Take 2

Hot Reads - Take 2

Where to begin? I feel like I have read some real good ones this go-round. Yet, I always feel thirsty for more. Any fellow readers experience the same feeling. Even though I am reading far more than I used to, I now find myself yearning for a rainy day or many lunch breaks thrown together to lounge outside on a porch with a book. The Scam by Janet Evanovich (Fox & O’Hare #4) Guns of the Timberland by Louis L’Amour All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr The…

March Favorites

March 2017 Favorties

Where has March gone? I couldn’t wait for March. Promises of baseball, good weather and free weekends to play with cows. For the most part, March did not let me down! Well Aggie baseball did, going 1-2, the first weekend of March in the Shriner Baseball Classic in Houston, but nonetheless, it was a great month and the Aggies shutting out lsu last night was a cherry on top. April is looking just as promising. Engagement pictures to be taken of my sister and her fiance! My cousin’s wedding! Fish Fry,…

Hot Reads 2017 – Take 1

Hot Reads 2017: Part 1 Sharing the books that have made their way to my reading list. Goodreads Reading Challenge sheerheart.org

Well shoot. We are already 45 days into this brand new year. Even though we are a little over a month and a half into 2017 is proving to be a good year. Mild weather, good health, new adventures. What more is there to ask for?!? On top of all the good already experienced, I have had a great run of luck when it comes to my reading list this year. As I mentioned in my post from the beginning of the year, I’d like to read a whopping 40…

Challenge Completed.

Reading Challenge 2016

2016 has come and gone. Twenty sixteen brought me so much in way of faith, hope and love. Life takes you where you don’t think you need to go. But embrace the ride and find a way to hold on is how I approached this past year. One of the goals nearest to my heart in 2016 was the Goodreads’ Reading Challenge. After a hot start in 2016, I naturally succumbed to procrastination and went a couple of months without touching a single book. But not to fear, I was…

Five Thousand Pages Down

Goodreads Reading Challenge 2016

As June nears its end, I figured I’d give an update on my 2016 Reading Challenge, through Goodreads.com. I began the year, guns a blazing, when it comes to burning through the books. Within the first 36 days, I had already finished six books. And then in the same way I took a break from blogging, I did the same for the most part with my reading. But towards the middle of May, I caught the reading bug, finishing three and a half books since. Two of those were some…

New Year, Resolutions Made

2016 New Year's Resolution

Well hello, 2016. To my surprise, I have yet to mess up the date this year. That’s got to be a sign that 2016 will be my year, right??? Last year, I shared some of my resolutions, and y’all did such a good job of holding me to them. < insert applause for you > Whether you care or not about my resolutions, knowing I put them on the internet, where they can’t go away, kept me a little more thoughtful of them throughout the year. Particularly, when it came to the Reading…

Down to the Last Minute

2015 Reading Challenge Update

Prior to my recent Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 30 post, it had been a little while since I had last posted. But I do have some pretty valid reasons for my absence. For one, this time of year had me plenty busy helping my company with Adopt-A-Family, a Family Services Association event. For a tiny office of only 15 employees, we were able to help 3 families, 15 individuals, of which a whopping 10 were children under the age 11. I couldn’t be more proud of a group of…

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…
