2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Forty-Third

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! I’m writing this intro as my kid naps. He actually refused his nap at the appointed time, only to crash on the couch next to me a couple hours later. Whatever, I’m letting him sleep. Pandemic rules: there are no rules. (Am I laughing or crying? I can’t tell.) It takes me so long to piece together a post these days sooooo now its a week later….

If the Boot Fits by Rebekah Weatherspoon

If the Boot Fits by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Howdy Bookworms, I rarely ask for advanced copies of books anymore, but I couldn’t resist when I saw a new Rebekah Weatherspoon on Netgalley. If the Boot Fits is the second installment of the Cowboys of California series. You’ll recall when I read A Cowboy to Remember, surely? If not, check it out HERE. A Cowboy to Remember was a loose retelling of Sleeping Beauty and If the Boot Fits… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Fortieth

Greetings, Bookworms! I don’t know about you, but I’m completely exhausted by current events. My energy is sapped. My blood pressure goes bonkers when I see science denial and arguing with people on the internet gives me hives. For my own mental health, I’ve liberally (get it? Because I’m liberal? Come for the books, stay for the Dad jokes) used the unfriend and snooze and unfollow features on FB as… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirty-Ninth

Hiiiiii Bookworms, I finished reading some books this week! Yay me! This week we decided to take a quick weeknight trip to a local apple orchard/pumpkin patch. We didn’t go to the super popular one because crowds. And, actually, crowd avoidance was why we went on a Monday night. We may be the last people on earth still concerned about COVID-19, but we’re trying to make smart choices. Anyway. We… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap Up: The Thirty-Seventh

Oh Hey Bookworms, Looks like I missed last week. IN MY DEFENSE, Labor Day threw a whole wrench into my mojo and it was rainy and gray ALL WEEK. I was in full survival mode. Plus, we all got our flu shots. Surely that has earned me some grace from the universe at large. Anyway, I have read some things. Shall we discuss? Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean-… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirty Fifth

Hello, Hello Bookworms, My brain is too fried to give you charming anecdotes today, BUT I finally finished reading some things, and I have THOUGHTS on them. Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean- Ah regency romance, I have missed you. I decided to start a new Sarah MacLean series because romance is a bright spot in this gloomy COVID landscape and hers are always so delightfully cheeky. Our titular… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirty-Third

Howdy Bookworms, I took a little break from the regular updates last week because I wanted to publish a post boosting Black voices in Sci-Fi and Fantasy that I’ve been thinking about for months. Of course it took time to compile, so now I’ve got some catching up to do on the regular reading. Also, it’s occurred to me that I started numbering these posts as like the first week… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirtieth

Howdy Bookworms, How’s that Pandemic life treating you? Fun new development- I’m now having COVID related anxiety dreams. Specifically, last night I dreamt I was going to someplace crowded (Disney maybe?) and I realized I didn’t have a mask on. Except NOBODY had masks on. I was aghast, and tried to put on my own mask only to have it consistently dip below my nose (the horrors). AND thanks to… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Twenty Eighth

Greetings Bookworms, Who wants some Sammy stories? Last week I made the decision to watch the new Hamilton movie after Sam went to bed, which meant that I was up entirely too late watching it. Totally worth it, but I was dragging the following day. As I was reheating leftovers for lunch, I was singing bits and pieces of the musical to myself. Sammers came in and was all, “Mommy… Read more »

Weekly Wrap-Up 2020: The Twenty Sixth

Hey Bookworms, It’s July now. Because time no longer means anything. On the upside, my child is contentedly watching some outer space educational cartoon set to a hip hop soundtrack. There are also robots. I’m not sure what’s going on, TBH, but it’s one of the better things we’ve stumbled across on YouTube. Anyway. I have two books to tell you about. Let’s talk about them, shall we? The Boyfriend… Read more »
