Nora & Kettle by Lauren Nicolle Taylor – Review and Giveaway

Nora & Kettle by Lauren Nicolle Taylor – Review and Giveaway

This is not my normal type of read, but I have to tell you that I’m so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to read it. I have to confess that it was the Peter Pan reference that first got my attention. The book has some very loose ties to the Peter Pan story, but I hadn’t reread the blurb before reading the book and hadn’t noticed any but the incredibly obvious ones – this is not […]

Air Awakens by Elise Kova – Review

Air Awakens by Elise Kova – Review

This is one of those fantasies that has a ton going for it – an interesting magical system, flawed characters who don’t always do the right thing (or even always know what the right thing is), secondary characters who you sometimes love and sometimes make you crazy, realistic inner turmoil … the list goes on. I’m not going to go into detail about the plot (you’re all perfectly capable of  reading the blurb). Instead, I’ll jump right […]

Books that Intimidate Us – Let’s Discuss!

Books that Intimidate Us – Let’s Discuss!

There are so many books out there that we really want to read, but we haven’t gotten to for one reason or another. And then there are those books that we’d like to get to, but they just sort of … intimidate us. You know what I’m talking about. Those scary books. The kind that we’re drawn to but that also strike dread into our hearts at the very thought of them. In my experience, there are several […]

After the Woods by Kim Savage – Traveling ARC Review, Favorite Quotes and Giveaway!

After the Woods by Kim Savage – Traveling ARC Review, Favorite Quotes and Giveaway!

This was the most fun I’ve ever had with a blog tour! The traveling ARC idea is phenomenal, especially with a book with a central mystery like this one. Take a look at the map above to see where this ARC went for the tour! (The big book shows the path that it took after it left me.) It was so much fun to read the comments that had been left by the bloggers before […]

Can Book Blogging Lead to a Job? Let’s Discuss!

On Sunday, Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight suggested that I write a post about how I got into editing and proofreading, and I thought it was a fantastic idea! I get that question a lot, actually, so I don’t know why I never thought to write a post about it before. The fact is that book blogging can lead into several forms of income (I’ll talk about some ideas of ways to earn money in […]

Abe Lincoln and the Selfie that Saved the Union by David Potter – Middle Grade Review

With Presidents’ Day being this week, it’s the perfect week to review this cute read that gives kids insight into President Lincoln and his family, along with a few other key players during the Civil War. I was excited to have my kids read this one to go along with our homeschool curriculum, and it didn’t disappoint. What Fed My Addiction: Goofy concept. The whole concept of the kids going back in time via an app on […]
