Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

G’Day, Bookworms! Man, do I ever love audio books. The last time I read a book by Liane Moriarty, I spent the first few chapters thinking the What Alice Forgot (review) was set in England only to be jarred when a mention of Sydney forced me to re-align my mental accent. I’m sure I would have remembered that Liane Moriarty is Australian and had that carry over into my reading of… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday Freebie: Potter Binge Highlights

Top Ten Tuesday Freebie: Potter Binge Highlights

Happy Tuesday, Bookworms! It’s been an age since I participated in a Top Ten Tuesday with The Broke and the Bookish. Me and my lazy pants blogging haven’t been feeling up to the challenge. Today’s topic is a freebie, though, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to put together my highlight reel for the Potter Binge! I’m going to list out my favorite notes from each of my eleven… Read more »

Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson

Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson

Happy Monday, Bookworms! You know what my favorite thing is? No? I don’t really know either, I have so many favorite things. One of the things I do happen to love, though, is when I pick up a book by an author I’ve not read before and upon finishing it want to add said author’s entire back list to my TBR pile. Loving new-to-me authors is a blessing and a… Read more »

Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn

Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn

Good Day, Bookworms! Last year I participated in a super fun book blogger Valentine gift swap and received a copy of Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn. It took me nearly a year to get around to reading it, of course, but you understand. The burden of an overflowing TBR list is a real struggle.  Read it, I did, though, and now I’m going to tell you all about it. The… Read more »

Bite Size Reviews: Jan 2016 Edition

Greetings Bookworms! I’ve been reading more than I’ve been blogging lately, and believe it or not, I’ve been reading things OTHER than Harry Potter. Of course, Harry Potter is so SOUL CONSUMING that I didn’t feel like discussing anything else. Today we’re going to play catch up and take a quick look at some of my recent reads. Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson: I… Read more »

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Oh Bookworms, It’s time. We’ve reached the very last half of the very last book of the Potter Binge. I want to thank the Estella Society for hosting this re-readalong. I’ve had so much fun reliving the magic. It’s worth every minute of the Harry Potter hangover I’m about to endure. My emotional stability is about to be tested and found inadequate. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2, is… Read more »

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Greetings, Bookworms. We’ve reached the final, darkest, and most emotionally draining installment of the Potter Binge (sponsored by the Estella Society), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. You know it’s going to be intense immediately if you’re listening to the audio books, because the musical introduction changes from a jaunty tune to a rather creeptastic interlude. We’re tackling this in two installments because I simply cannot contain my commentary. There are… Read more »

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Part 2

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! I simply cannot get enough of The Estella Society sponsored Potter Binge. Honestly, I’ve had so many great conversations with real life friends and coworkers as well as with the internet that I just want to bring y’all over for a nice warm butterbeer and some treacle tart. Except, I’ve never had treacle tart so I’m not sure I’d like it. I could make you apple crisp…. Read more »

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Part 1

Happy New Year, Bookworms! I thought about kicking off the new year with a big old list of resolutions or something, but who are we kidding? I would break every last one of those resolutions and then feel worse about it because I’d announced them to the world. Why should I put myself under that kind of pressure, I ask you? I’ve decided to stick to what makes me happy,… Read more »
