The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson: A Dual Review with Marilla

The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson: A Dual Review with Marilla

Marilla was a recent winner of my Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up “Make Me Read It” giveaway, and she chose to make me read The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson.

Nicole’s Best Books of the Decade

I’ve been seeing lots of these lists around since we’re coming to the end of the 2010s, and I thought I’d jump in!

It’s time for a new installment of Fun with SPAM, where we peek into the abyss of the Spam folder to find a few gems and imagine … what if I were really going to reply to these random crazy comments?  Take a look at what I might say (when I reference a specific post in my replies, that’s the post that the spam comment was left on): I have read the post with amazing satisfaction […]
