It Ends With Us

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover This was not the book I expected, but that’s okay.  I expected something a little more “thriller” after reading her book Verity.  That is not what this is.   Trigger warning - domestic violence. The Premise: This is the story of Lily and the two loves of her life. ... Continue Reading →

The Book That Matters Most

The Book That Matters Most by Ann Hood I love a book about books, but you probably know that already.  The Book that Matters Most was no exception.  However, before I recommend this one to you, I must give a trigger warning - this book discusses some pretty heavy drug use and suicide.  I am...

The Binding

The Gift of Imperfection

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown The inside flap describes Brene as “...a gifted mapmaker and a fellow traveler.  She is both a social scientist and a kitchen-table friend to whom you can always count on to tell the truth, make you laugh, and, on occasion, cry with you.”  Yep, that sounds about right....

2022 Reading Goals

2022 - Reading Goals In 2020 I set reading goals for the first time.  I wanted to re-read more books, read more self-growth type books and read more series.  I did pretty well in 2020 and kept the same goals into 2021.  While I don’t plan anything drastic for 2022, I think it’s time to...

My Book Rating System

When I read a book I rate it on a scale of 1 - 5.  This is what these mean to me: 1:  Did not enjoy it enough to finish the book.  Therefore, it becomes a DNF (did not finish) and I don’t count this book in my total for the year. 2:  I didn’t... Continue Reading →
