This post may contain affiliate links, please see my Disclosures page for more information. Thank you for your support! July Favorites Favorite Book I had to do some serious catch up on my Summer Reading list. Halfway through June and into July, I didn’t feel like reading whatsoever.

Book Review: A Gentleman in Moscow

Book Review: A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles - sheerheart.org

A Gentleman in Moscow has been downloaded through my Audible app for quite some time. Well before I posted my Summer Reading List.

A Gentleman in Moscow By: Amor Towles   amortowles.com 480 pages, published September 6, 2016. Available on Amazon and at other stores, click here. Initially, I was intrigued by…

June Favorites

June Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Before I get to my June favorites, I want to wish you a Happy 4th of July!!! Holidays that fall during the middle of the week make work so interesting. I had off this past Friday, but worked Monday and then we have today off. So it has made for a weird week. Actually it has felt like a long vacation. Especially since most of my time has been spent at the lake over the last few days. No better place to be this time of year! June was one…

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.…

Top 5 Friday: Western Novels

Top 5 Friday: Western Novels - sheerheart.org

Getting closer to home with this week’s Top 5 Friday post. We’re going to chat a little about my favorite western novels. It’s not secret, western is most likely my favorite genre. Take a look at any of my reading posts, and my point will quickly be validated. Where It Began My love for tales of the wild west, began when I was just short of a teenager. I believed Grandpa hung the moon, still do. In their den/office they have two huge book cases full of books. I remember…

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,…

The Journey Begins

Lent

Come back to me with all your heart. Don’t let fear keep us apart. Trees do bend though straight and tall; so must we to others’ call. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life. The wilderness will lead you to your heart where I will speak. Integrity and justice with tenderness you shall know. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life. You shall sleep secure with peace; faithfulness will be your joy.…

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.

As I mentioned in my post from the beginning of the year, I’d like to read a whopping 40…
