The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa

The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa

Greetings Bookworms, I just finished the most delightful Rom-Com. As I started writing little notes to myself for my weekly wrap-up, it quickly became clear that I had a lot to say about The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa. Hence, it shall have its own post. You deserve it, you sweet little book, you. Our protagonist, Carolina Santos, is a wedding planner who manages to keep doing her job… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Eighth

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Eighth

Hiya Bookworms, Let’s review the week, shall we? It’s not bookish news, but, we ordered the bridesmaid dresses for my friend’s wedding from eShakti and mine arrived this week.┬áIf you’re unfamiliar, eShakti is an online retailer where you can customize your sizing and style details before you order. Like, I wanted a different neckline than the default design and I added sleeves (which my bride-chilla was totally cool with.) I… Read more »

Top Ten Romance Novel Heroes

Top Ten Romance Novel Heroes

Howdy Bookworms! Back when I was blogging all the time I used to put together Top Ten lists weekly. There was a Top Ten Tuesday meme (which I think is probably still a thing?) where a theme would be selected and you’d choose your Top Ten for a given topic. I did so many of those that I got burnt out, especially when the topics started to get repetitive. That… Read more »

Weekly Wrap-Up 2020: The Seventh

Greetings Bookworms! I’d just like to take a moment to give myself a high five for keeping these weekly posts going longer than I anticipated when I made my New Year’s Resolution. Yes, I know it’s only February, but I expected to make it 3 weeks, tops. As it turns out, I really, really missed shouting about books on the internet. Who knew? So… Shall we shout about some books… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Sixth

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Sixth

Well Bookworms, it’s been a week! Jim just got back from a business trip. He was gone for just over a week. I didn’t mention it at the time because it’s not a great idea to plaster the internet with notifications that you’re home alone with a toddler. Sammers and I had a lot of fun, but it’s nice to be a parenting team again! We’re still potty training (it’s… Read more »

Penguin Books for Every Occasion: Kid Lit with my Kidlet

Penguin Books for Every Occasion: Kid Lit with my Kidlet

Hiya Bookworms! Y’all know by now that I’m an avid penguin enthusiast, and that I shamelessly roped my child into the obsession (check out his first Halloween and nursery if you require proof.) Sammy has a MASSIVE book collection, and a large swath of that is dedicated to our flightless feathered friends. I know what you’re thinking. “How many penguin books can there possibly be? And on how many subjects?… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Fifth

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Fifth

Greetings My Dearest Bookworms, It’s time to tell you all about the books I poured into my brain this week. I’m a little astonished that I’ve been reading so much lately, especially given the toddler running around my house. I *may* be reading to de-stress more than usual since toddlerhood is stressful for both children and parents. But, honestly? Reading as a coping mechanism is an extremely healthy and productive… Read more »
