Hey! I've Read That! (A Confession Friday Game)

Hey! I've Read That! (A Confession Friday Game)

Howdy Bookworms! So the other day I was skulking around the blogosphere as I am wont to do. I came across a list on Book Riot (HERE is the post by Jeff O’Neal) of 100 books that would make you “well read.” He had a set of criteria including cultural significance, familiarity with the classics of western literature, etc.  There was a big blow up in the comment section about what constitutes… Read more »

Tell The Wolves I'm Home. No, Seriously. Tell Them.

Tell The Wolves I'm Home. No, Seriously. Tell Them.

Happy Monday, Bookworms! I don’t use the term “favorite” often when it comes to books, because it’s too difficult. All sorts of books have all sorts of great reasons to love them. However,  Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt tugged at all the right heartstrings for me. Dare I say that this may just land on my list of FAVORITES? Oh, I dare. And now I’m going to… Read more »

Happy Half-Birthday, 2013! Let's Celebrate with… TOP TEN TUESDAY!

G’day Bookworms! It’s TUESDAY, so we’re going to get our list on with the ladies of The Broke and the Bookish! Today they’ve asked us to list the Top Ten Books we’ve read so far in 2013. I’ve read some AWESOME books this year, so it’ll be tough to narrow it down to ten, but here goes… 1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. How much more can I say… Read more »

Dome Along: We're Half Way There!

Dome Along: We're Half Way There!

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! Remember how I said I’d joined a read along for Stephen King’s Under the Dome through Coffee and a Book Chick? I’m about half way through the book right now and I thought I’d give you a little synopsis of my feelings… So. There’s this town called Chester’s Mill. It’s in Maine because that is Stephen King’s thing. One day these invisible walls go up all over… Read more »

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Good Day Bookworms! Have you ever paid attention to the stuff you do every day? I’m not talking about the chores or the errands or the work. I’m talking physical stuff. Walking. Climbing stairs. Getting dressed. Bathing. Eating. Driving. Typing. What would you do if you couldn’t do ANY of that for yourself anymore? The thought probably makes you uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable. It makes me sad. It makes… Read more »

The Trip of Several Lifetimes (I'm Guest Posting!!!)

The Trip of Several Lifetimes (I'm Guest Posting!!!)

Hey there, Bookworms! I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Katie doesn’t usually post on Wednesdays.” You’re correct. However. Kelly, who writes the CERTIFIED AWESOME BLOG, The Well-Read Redhead asked me to guest post for her while she’s on vacation. True to form, I came up with something completely ridiculous. It’s also quite fun, if I do say so myself. I may or may not have booked an imaginary vacation… Read more »

Summertime, and the Reading is Easy (Top Ten Tuesday)

Summertime, and the Reading is Easy (Top Ten Tuesday)

Howdy Bookworms! In case you hadn’t noticed, it is summer! Well. It’s summer here in the northern hemisphere at least. Australia just blows my mind with the opposite seasons. And the awesome marsupials. (I want to visit you, Australia. I am not good at being a tourist, but I think I love you.) Aaaanyway. Today is TUESDAY! So. The Broke and The Bookish have asked me to give y’all a… Read more »

The Bookman’s Tale: A Novel of Obsession by Charlie Lovett

The Bookman’s Tale: A Novel of Obsession by Charlie Lovett

How fare thee, sweet Bookworms? Today we explore a book about books! A few weeks ago, one of my aunts left me a note on Facebook asking me if I’d read The Bookman’s Tale: A Novel of Love and Obsession by Charlie Lovett. I said I hadn’t and asked if it was any good. My aunt responded with “I don’t know, YOU’RE the bookworm!” Apparently snarky eyebrows aren’t the only familial trait…… Read more »

What's in Your HEEEEEAD? (Zombie by Joyce Carol Oates)

What's in Your HEEEEEAD? (Zombie by Joyce Carol Oates)

Hello Bookworms, Today we’re going dark. I’m talking pit-of-despair dark. I just finished reading Zombie by Joyce Carol Oates. I purchased it because I like Joyce Carol Oates, I like zombies, and I like Kindle books offered at sale prices. Much to my disappointment, this wasn’t about zombies in the traditional sense. Although, it had quite a bit to do with BRAAAAAAINS. You ever watch Criminal Minds or Hannibal or… Read more »
