• January Reading Thoughts

    I started the year off strong with eleven books read in the month of January. I tried to get a good mix of topics and mediums. I wound up with six audio, three e-books, and two physical books. I’m halfway through one physical book and one audio book, but I didn’t finish them in time […]

  • Plain Bad Heroines

    As I work harder at being a more present reader, I’m going to add a new part of my blog each month. Along with my overall book thoughts for everything I read the month before, I’m going to do a longer post on my favorite read. This first one might not be as well prepared […]

  • Books In Review

  • Reads of December 2022

    Finished the year strong with fifteen reads. Went over my year’s goal of 150 by 7. But I didn’t finish the Read Harder Challenge. I still have four books left, but I fully intend to read them this year instead. But let’s get into the books.  Paperbacks from Hell by Grady HendrixI’ll need to get […]

  • July Reads

    I made it through another eight wonderful books this month. Two of them were quite long and I blame them for not hitting that nine or ten mark this time around. But I’m still sprinting towards the fifty book goal for the year. I do want to focus on reading ebooks or paperbacks again, and […]

  • Bookish Things

    One thing I wish I had was the time to sit and read. I’ve been so grateful for the existence of audiobooks so that I can keep on track with my reading goals, but I do miss reading books. I miss being cozy on the couch with a book and reading until my heart’s content. […]

  • Jillian’s New Powers

                I stood at the edge of our land and looked out over the woods below. The wind whipped my hair around my face, and it stuck in my mouth and the corners of my eyes. From a distance, the bright red color must have looked like a flame. The idea left me craving a […]

  • A Book from Long Ago

    When I was nineteen, I wrote books about vampires and werewolves and other magical stuff. Because I love that stuff. Anyway, this is one of them. And on Thursday you can read the first chapter. Let me know if it sounds like something that needs to be fully rewritten for the world to see.

  • June Reads

                Another nine books down last month. I seriously cannot express how much I am loving the Libby app right now. I never would have thought I’d be just thirteen books away from my goal for the year at the start of July. It makes me wonder if I can get to 100 books in […]

  • May Reads 2021

                Another crazy month of reading down and I tore through NINE books. I’m also now at thirty-one reads for the year out of my fifty-five book goal. Obviously, I’m going to make that with no problem. Audiobooks have really been a game-changer for me. As for my overall reading list, I’ve marked off eight […]
