Favorite Author

I’ve talked about Ann Patchett on this blog before, but I’ve recently collected more of her books, and they are right in my eye line when I’m sitting at my desk. I can’t wait to read Bel Canto again soon. It is one of my absolute favorite books. The prose is just spot on.

Slept with the Lights On

I started IT yesterday and, like all Stephen King novels, it’s not what I expected. There’s been a hint of a clown…but just a small appearance. Still, it’s super creepy already and I’m loving it. I didn’t keep the lights on…but I sure had some weird dreams last night!! This is going to be a beast,

Haunting Read

My picks for this morning’s post aren’t haunting in a spooky way. I could have picked any of the Stephen Kings on my shelves, but I haven’t read many of them yet, so to me, they aren’t very haunting. No, the two books that jumped out at me as I looked around the room looking

Gave Me Chills

BookClubFiction is reading Joe Hill’s NOS4A2 this month, which I was super excited about because of how much I loved Horns. And this book is JUST as freaky, if not more so. I’m not going to give too much away, because I’m going to be doing the review in the next day or so, but holy shit,

M is for Mystery

R loves John Grisham so much we have an entire shelf of them. Every time we go to a book sale, he picks a new one up, one he doesn’t have. I’ve made sure to catalog them all on my Goodreads app–so he knows which ones are already on our shelves. I’ve read one or

Beware…This was Bad

I don’t typically keep books on my shelves that I don’t care for. I need the room to add more books! Plus, trading books back to the used book store means credits for me. But, since The Golden Compass is a husband book…I suppose it’ll have to stay on my shelves.  

Obsessed with this Book

I’m pretty sure I could use Harry Potter for every single one of these challenges this month, but I’m trying really hard to save you the monotony. Hazard of rereading them, I guess. I AM obsessed with them. Instead, I’ll pull out my new old copy of The Great Gatsby. After seeing the movie, I became obsessed with

Love this Quote

My quote for today didn’t come from a book, but I’ve written it in my journal repeatedly. Every time I see it–on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter–I am compelled to write it down, as a reminder to let go of the prejudices that plague our society. I’ve seen another post making it’s rounds that tells us that

Currently Reading

I’ve shared before that musicals are one of my husband’s favorite things. And his favorite musicals is Jekyll and Hyde. When he’s in a particularly productive mood, he will almost always be blasting that soundtrack, singing at the top of his lungs. I, however, have never seen the musical, or read the book. So, it’s

Comfy Read

If I were more photogenic, you’d get a super cute picture of me, curled up in a blanket in my favorite reading spot, with a topknot and a cup of coffee. Some kind of pinterest/tumblr/instagram type shit. Instead, you get a picture of Pride and Prejudice hanging out in said reading spot. Sorry guys. I’m lame
