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 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.

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 →
