Fall Reading Challenge 2017

Fall Reading Challenge 2017 - sheerheart.org

Fall reading challenge, I’m ready, are you? September 22nd means fall is officially here. Beings that summer is my favorite time of the year, fall doesn’t get me quite as excited as it does everyone else. All I have been hearing about this week is pumpkin spice latte, blah, blah, blah. I’m not a cool weather person, so the longer I have temps in the high 70s to low 90s the better. I’m assuming I’m in the minority on this one, but I digress. After enjoying my Summer Reading Challenge…

August Favorites

August Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Whew August was wonderful, and this post is about to be full of my August favorites! Being my birthday month, August is always one to look forward to, even though it marks the endish of summer. Not only did I have many favorite things, but I also had a blast making memories. Whether it was spending the weekends at the lake with family and friends, working and hauling cows from sunup to sundown, or hanging out with the family and “old peeps”, August brought me so much to be thankful…

Weekend Recap – 8.28.2017

Weekend Recap 8.28.2017 - sheerheart.org

It’s time for a little weekend recap action on the blog today. Hurricane Harvey has made its impact across Texas. However, it didn’t impact me quite as much as we thought/hoped for. Nonetheless, I’m sending up my prayers for all affected. As terrible as it has been to see the damage and pain caused, it has also been a beautiful thing to watch people helping others no matter who they are. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see all of these good deeds and efforts publicized for weeks, months and years…

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…

Book Review: Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane - sheerheart.org

Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane happened to be the book that jumped out at me and demanded to be read first out of the eight books I included on my summer reading list. In last week’s Summer Bucket List post, I mentioned needing to do reviews on each of the eight, but saying I need to and actually doing it are two different things, as you all know. Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane 432 pages. Available on Amazon and at other book stores. (click here) To begin, Half…

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.

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…
