Raise your hand if reading every book in your library queue is on your summer bucket list.  Summer is THE season for reading, and somehow also the time of year we give ourselves permission to read frothy, possibly low-brow books in the name of easy entertainment.  Count me here for it in all the ways!

During the summer I like to read a mix of new releases and classic titles, or even reread old favorites.  So I put together...

Hey friends, who's ready to fill up their library book queue and Amazon carts with amazing books??  I haven't done a book review since January (you can read it here!) and figured it's high time I get back in the saddle...especially since I just launched a book club here in Asheville!  The little girl whose idea of playing sports meant finishing a stack of books before supper time is in happy disbelief right now, and feeli...

(Just casually reading on my hearth with a tripod coincidentally visible in the background.  Clearly a candid photo right here haha!)

Hey y'all, welcome back!  Coming out of my super extended holiday blogging break with my newest book review, and you guys, there are some really good reads in here!  A mix of fantasy, YA, coming-of-age, and, of course, a page-turner chock full of cheap thrills.  I flew through every single one of...

Happy Friday!  I'm finally rolling out this book review much later than planned; I decided to add Crazy Rich Asians at the last minute which held me up a tad.  I'm pretty excited about this round-up since so many of these books are popular picks.  

If you're new to my book reviews, welcome!  I give a short plot synopsis without giving away too muc...

Y'all know I've been giving myself a little extra space lately to enjoy a life well-lived instead of viewed through a screen so much.  Hard when you're trying to make it as a blogger, yet I know I need it.  I started giving myself Friday afternoons during Harlow's nap time to relax and read, maybe even catch a nap if I can.  One of the luxuries of being a SAHM is that I have that option even though I still feel TONS...

Oh Em Gee you guys.  I am SO excited to talk about these three books today because I loved every single one SOOOO much!  Like I wanted to do a review before I even finished the third book bc I just wanted to share the book love so badly.  Today I'm reviewing The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro, Southern Solstice by Sarah Sadler, and Before Versailles by Karleen Koen.

Good morning!  Today I'm doing my very first book review and I find I'm way more nervous than I ever thought I would be discussing books haha!  But, I did an Instagram poll (I know, so official) and the vast majority of you all said you were into the idea so here goes!

I've always been a big reader from a young age and I really love reading all different kinds of books, as you can probably guess from the range of titles I'...

In May I came out with a list of Eight Books To Add To Your Toddler's Library and many of you have reached out to tell me how much you liked the list and the post!  So today's post is the sequel featuring nine more titles that make great reads to share with your young reader.

A quick heads up: these aren't basic picture/object books, or books about counting or colors.  They've got plots and some run a tad longer than others.  W...

Harlow loves her books so much.  She loves reading them, flipping through the pages to point at familiar animals and objects, and of course ripping them off the shelves to pile on the floor.  A new favorite game is piling them all in her Everywhere Chair and then attempting to sit in said chair and inevitably growing frustrated when she slips off the pile. It really is fascinating watching a toddler use systems and spatial rel...
