I've written and re-written this post in my head. There are so many words, but in the end, this is what it comes down to: Black Lives Matter. Read Black authors. Non-fiction AND fiction.

Alright y'all - Harry Potter. I have had a book blog for over 3 years and have yet to write a single full post about Harry Potter. UNACCEPTABLE. That changes now. Get ready for a quick overview of my life with HP and, also, one of the cutest stories ever about me and my husband!… Continue reading Harry Potter and…Me!

I am really loving our pacing – we are choosing a book every other month or so, with super low deadline pressure. That is… Continue reading The Year of Magical Thinking
I have been looking for a book challenge to do for 2018. I am just getting into the idea of yearly challenges (I just sort of maybe did my first one this year) and am trying to find a good one for me. When I read about Beat the Backlist on Bluestocking Bookworm’s blog, it… Continue reading Beat the Backlist 2018
I had a very exhausting (but very fun) weekend. One of my oldest/best friends gets married at the end of the month and I was at her bachelorette party.
