The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater

** This is the second book in The Raven Cycle series. There may be mild spoilers in this review for The Raven Boys (but not really… 🙂 ).** Ever since I started blogging almost two years ago, I feel like everyone has been talking about this series! It’s a favorite for a lot of people and I’m late to the bandwagon. The last book in the series released earlier this […]

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson

I read this book as part of a work book club. It’s definitely a little outside of my comfort zone because I don’t usually read memoirs, even funny ones. I had never read anything by Jenny Lawson prior to picking up this book. I also wasn’t familiar with her blog, The Bloggess. This book is a collection of funny stories from Jenny Lawson’s life – from her childhood through adulthood. […]

Red Queen (Red Queen #1) by Victoria Aveyard

This book has a lot of strong opinions out there about it. For the longest time, I was fairly wary about it because I had heard such mixed things. A lot of people really loved this book and a lot of people really hated it. I had no idea which camp I would fall into! A friend of mine (Jessica!) loves this series though and convinced me to give it […]

The August topic for the group was a tag where you recommend one book for all of the categories that were discussed within the past year. I thought this was a great topic to get me started in the […]

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2) by Laini Taylor

** This is the second book in Daughter and Smoke & Bone series. There may be mild spoilers in this review for Daughter of Smoke. ** This was a great second book in a series. Too often, sequels have disappointed me – especially recently it seems – but not this one! The Audiobook I LOVE the narrator for this series. I listened to the first book on audio and I […]

August Wrap Up

Life Miranda Lambert Concert – I went to a Miranda Lambert concert early in the month and it was so fun! I don’t go to concerts often so this was a fun and different thing for me to do. “J” isn’t a huge fan of her, but he came with me anyway for a fun date night. Miranda Lambert sounds the same live as she does on her albums and […]
