The Testaments

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood I had been looking at this book on my shelf.  I wanted to read it, but at the same time, I didn't.  Once I read it, the story will be done and I just don’t want it to end.   I loved The Handmaid’s Tale.  The story was amazing. The characters... Continue Reading →

Such A Fun Age

Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid This book has been getting lots of hype.  And I have to say, I was a little under-whelmed while I read it, but now I keep finding myself thinking about it after the fact (a sure sign of a good book). The Premise:  We have a privileged white... Continue Reading →

The Real Thing

The Real Thing by Ellen McCarthy A cute essay collection about love and relationships, written by a former wedding reporter.  I found it enjoyable (for awhile), but I realized I’m not really a fan of essays. Therefore, I only made it about ½ way through before I called it quits.   I typically don’t write about... Continue Reading →

A Treacherous Curse

A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn This is such a great series, I just can’t say enough about it!  One of my reading goals is to read more series/sequels. It’s been a no-brainer with Raybourn's Veronica Speedwell Mystery series.  This is book 3 I believe, and will be diving into book 4 soon!! If you... Continue Reading →

Pink Martini

Pink Martini One of my favorite winter cocktails (I don’t know why I consider it a winter cocktail, but I do).  In my house, they are just called Pink Things. You’ll notice a similarity to a Cosmo, but the proportions are different.  It’s boozy, delicious and makes the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail! (the recipe below... Continue Reading →

Smith Imagine a world where witches exist...where they have a role to play in the world.  Now imagine that world is in France.   The Premise: Most good wineries employ a vine witch to keep things running smoothly.  They help the grapes grow, they protect the harvest and support the...

The Friend Zone

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez I feel like February must start with a romance, and this one happened to come in from my library hold list just in time! The Premise: Kristen is busy running her own business and fulfilling her maid-of-honor duties for her best friend’s upcoming wedding.  Enter Josh, the super cute... Continue Reading →

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow Have you ever seen a more beautiful book cover?  Me neither.   I have to admit I struggled a little to get into this book.  However, because I heard good things about it, I didn’t give up. During the first few chapters, I was concerned the... Continue Reading →

Judgment Detox

One of my reading goals for 2020 is to read more self development books.  I decided to start with this one because it has been sitting on my shelf since it came out in 2018.  In all honesty, I think I pre-ordered it to be sure I got it as soon as it came out,... Continue Reading →
