Cozy Corner| September Highlights

Can you believe that we are already into October? Honestly, I can. Ever since about the second week of September I've thought it was October. I wasn't consciously trying to rush September away, but for some reason, October was looming large. And then Summer came back (it has been crazy hot here the last couple… Continue reading Cozy Corner| September Highlights

Review: Death by Eggnog by Alex Erickson

Death by Eggnog  nailed the Christmas elements. The Christmas references all felt natural, and I had no trouble believe that Krissy really was navigating the Christmas season, with all it's snowy goodness. I read this book when summer had yet to dissolve fully into fall... and found myself wishing that it would start to snow so that I could have that Christmas snow feeling in real life. I was literally sitting in shorts dreaming of snow. *slow clap* Well done Erickson. Well done.

Review: Holiday Murder by Leslie Meier

Holiday Murder combines two previously published books in the Lucy Stone mystery series, of which there are currently 25 - Mistletoe Murder and Christmas Cookie Murder. The first book, Mistletoe Murder is also the first book in the series and this combination seemed like the perfect way to dip my toe into the series, which finding a fun mystery to add to my seasonal reading list.

Review: Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips

Fierce Kingdom takes place over a span of three tense hours, which was about the time it took me to read the book. Though I can't say that I was hooked from the very first page, once I was hooked, I couldn't put the book down. The need to know the outcome kept me turning pages even during the slow part in the middle.

Fall 2017 TBR: Frightful Fall

Because I have been itching to read more suspense and thriller novels, I have loosely themed this… Continue reading Fall 2017 TBR: Frightful Fall

Reading Challenges

BookTube-a-thon 2017

The answer is that, for the moment anyway, I want to keep track of my reading challenges and reading lists here as well as on my BookTube channel. Especially… Continue reading BookTube-a-thon 2017

Reading Lists

Summer 2017 Reading List

This summer I decided to play with the idea of a quarterly reading list. My first list may seem a bit ambitious (almost 30 books), but the intent isn't that I have to read all of the books on the list. It's not that kind of challenge. The idea is that it's long enough that it should last the whole summer and it has enough variety built in that it should cover at least a jumping off point for any reading mood I may find myself in.

Library Day Friday 2014

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope everyone had a good holiday and is ready for 2014, because ready or not, it is here. Did you make any New Years Resolutions this year?

That Customer

I spent a lot of unnecessary time searching for a book online today. All because I was stubborn. And I didn't want to be that person. Not that I have anything against that person. I just feel like, with my knowledge of books and fantastic Google skills, I shouldn't have to be that person. Which person is that,… Continue reading That Customer
