It’s a Wrap! January Edition

I no longer plan what I read by month as I’m more of a mood reader. If a book strikes me, boom, I’m in the mood to read it. So, planning a to-be-read (TBR) list, like many book bloggers and vloggers, feels like a chore. Besides, when I did plan by month, most of the […]

My Dinner List

If you could pick any five people, alive or dead, to invite to a dinner party, who would you choose and why? If given a chance to answer this classic ice breaker, how would you answer? After reading The Dinner List months ago, I considered this question, but then stored the answer away just in […]

A Writer’s Must Have For Their Library!

Hi everyone! Today’s an exciting day because I’ve been helping Angela and Becca at Writers Helping Writers keep a BIG secret: what the next book in their thesaurus series will be. It might seem strange for an author to not tell their readers about the book they plan to release…unless your names are Becca and […]

Hue’s Reviews: “Black Enough”

I read Young Adult (YA). Yes, I know. I’m someone’s parent and should have left the subgenre behind. But, you know what? I enjoy stories – period – and many of them come from YA. However, there’s an issue plaguing YA’s publishing – the lack of young adult and teen voices within non-stereotypical stories. Readers […]

Love, Peace, and Book Challenges

Book challenges. From Popsugar.com to Book Riot’s Read Harder, there’s one for any bibliophile willing to invest time, money, and/or energy into completing them. I adore them. To track my books, I use Goodreads. However… I like variety. So, I’ll share a secret. I do not follow a reading challenge to the tee. I tend to take reading prompts […]

My Favorite Books of 2018

New Year…New Happenings!

2019’s here and I’m ready for it. Yes. I made resolutions and yes, I do intend to keep them. They’re pretty standard.  Lose thirty pounds. Nice round number. Feasible. Doable. Happening.

Someday…

Someday I will run away leaving small things behind until they become smaller than dust underneath moonlight. Some night I will walk this Earth meandering until I find paths my toes will tiptoe until they bleed from the satisfaction of finding my home. For now, I smirk at plans no one else sees and no […]

October Wrap-Up!

October came and left without much fanfare in my library’s life. I read a total of eight books. One entertained me beyond belief, while most of them simply received a “meh” from me. Am I slumping? I think not. But, book premises trick me more nowadays than they should. Hopefully, November will offer me more […]

My Paris Bucket List

Next week I will be on a plane to Paris. Anxiety and joy wrap themselves upon my skin as I prepare for my next adventure – one I’ve saved patience and money to embark. As with most places I venture, I simply do not want mere tourist experiences. I want to embody the areas via […]
