Any Way the Wind Blows: An Idiosyncratic Lit LIst

Any Way the Wind Blows: An Idiosyncratic Lit LIst

Howdy Bookworms, I like word games. Sometimes I’ll sit and gaze at my “read” list on Goodreads and think of how books with similar titles can be so incredibly different. I thought it might be fun to come up with a list around a word, so I went and picked one. Let’s talk about WIND! 1. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Mmmm historical fiction. Yeah, so I kind… Read more »

Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight

Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! Remember last month when I got all philosophical about choosing a book for book club because last month’s selection in my neighborhood book club (cleverly named My Neighbors Are Better Than Your Neighbors) hit a sour note? You can click HERE if you’re interested. But you’ll be happy to know that this month’s selection worked out infinitely better for me. This month we read Reconstructing Amelia by… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday: My Bookish Bucket List

Top Ten Tuesday: My Bookish Bucket List

Happy Tuesday Bookworms! The ladies of The Broke and the Bookish this week have tasked is with a doozy of a list. They have asked us what items are on our Bookish Bucket List. I haven’t honestly given this topic a whole lot of thought in the past, but I can put one together. I mean, why in the heck not? 1. Go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter… Read more »

Looking for Alaska by John Green

Looking for Alaska by John Green

Greetings, Bookworms! I turned 31 this weekend. The fact does not thrill me. In order to combat the “I’m getting old” blues, I thought it would be a good time to write about some YA fiction I read recently. My body may be aging but my mind can remain immature indefinitely, right? I ADORED The Fault in Our Stars (my review), but when I went on to read An Abundance… Read more »

King’s March: The Green Mile

King’s March: The Green Mile

Greetings Bookworms, Let it never be said that I am not susceptible to peer pressure. When I saw that Rory from Fourth Street Review and Wendy from Wensend were putting together a Stephen King event for March, I decided to throw my hat in the ring. Now, if you’ve been here a while, you’ll know I’m a big ridiculous chicken about my Stephen King. I have to be careful about… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday: A Spring Preview

Top Ten Tuesday: A Spring Preview

Happy Tuesday, Bookworms! I seem to have come down with a cold, which is endlessly vexing to me because I so rarely get sick. As a result I’m a giant whiny puddle of goo. In an effort not to dwell on what I’m sure is the most minor of ailments, I’m going to make a list. The ladies of The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list what… Read more »

Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman

Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman

Howdy Bookworms, How y’all doing? You remember how much I loved Saving CeeCee Honeycutt? You don’t? Well. Go HERE. I’ll wait. Back? Good! Fortune smiled on me a few weeks back and I won a $20 gift card to Book Depository from I Solemnly Swear. Amanda was kind enough to allow me to go 14 cents over my gift card allotment so I could order Beth Hoffman’s newest offering, Looking… Read more »
