From My Bookshelf: Ramona, Ramona, Ramona

The first fictional character I became truly invested in was Ramona Quimby. Even now she holds a piece of my heart, as does author Beverly Cleary, who I know is cherished by more readers, teachers, and individuals than by just me.

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck | Sarah Knight

RC2017: The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck

Alright, this is going to be short and not sweet. I would like to say that I read Sarah Knight’s The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck from cover to cover and that I gained some insight on how not to give a fuck about things that aren’t worth it. But if I said those things I would be lying. So my following thoughts are on…

PageHabit Book Subscription Box

In November I entered the THANKSgiveaway contest from PageHabit, a book subscription service (thanks NetGalley for the heads up/email!), thinking it was going to be just another contest I wasn’t going to win (looking at you, Goodreads). But, and you can tell from the existence of this very post, I received an email from PageHabit that said because one of the 500 winners did not…

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up | Marie Kondo

RC2017: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

I started reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up with a fair amount of skepticism. I certainly didn’t expect to come away feeling as inspired as I am, and the spiritual impression The KonMari Method made on me is just as much of a surprise.

From My Bookshelf: Winnie, Harper, Delany

Once again, my hometown library held a stellar book sale, and once again, I brought home “way too many” books. While almost all of the books I chose are works of fiction, the following three are works of non-fiction that I could not pass up (and three works that I haven’t yet read). They are: Part of My Soul Went with Him by Winnie Mandela, Mockingbird: A…

My 2018 Plum Paper Planner

With the end of the year drawing near, it’s time to finish this year’s goals, tasks, and to-dos and start planning for what we want to accomplish in – *gulp* – 2018. If you are like me and prefer to start the new year with a fresh planner, then this post is for you. If you start a new planner at a different time of…

Book Tag | There's Something About KM

The New York Times “By The Book” Tag

Another month, another Book Tag. I initially found this one at My Paper Infinity, and through some searching, traced it to Nerdy Talks Book Blog and then finally to its originator, booktuber Marie Berg (it was also done by Rincey Reads). This Tag is inspired by the By The Book column in The New York Times, and each blogger has a slightly different version of this Book…

The Tsar of Love and Techno | Anthony Marra

RC2017: The Tsar of Love and Techno

The stories in Anthony Marra’s The Tsar of Love and Techno could sturdily stand on their own – but after reading them together you will wish for them never to be separated. I added this book to my 2017 Reading Challenge per a recommendation from book reviewer and blogger FictionFan, who highly recommends the audiobook (I read a physical copy), and I’m so glad I did.
