March Recap, with sadness, & What Comes Next!

March was so hard for my family.  I recently announced that we were expecting a baby, and sadly a couple weeks ago we lost it.  It’s been tough for all of us, and thank goodness for scheduling posts because I didn’t really visit Birdie Bookworm much, let alone write or read. I didn’t read much, […]

Rapid Fire Book Tag

I was actually tagged by Reads, Rhythms, and Ruminations to do this one way back in March, and I pushed it back for other tags.  It’s not that I don’t like this tag, it’s more that back then (in March) I felt like I did one that was similar so I wanted to get some […]

May 2017 Recap & What’s Coming Next

This month I really struggled with where to put my reads on the ratings list.  You see, rarely is a book exactly 5 stars, sometimes it’s only a 4.75… close enough to 5 that it shouldn’t be lumped in with the 4 star reads.  I’m honest to a fault.  I couldn’t say they were all […]

Wow, I really slowed down in September.  I’m going to ignore that little voice in my head pointing out how much blogging I’ve been doing in place of reading, and instead I’ll tell myself it’s just […]
