Beauty of the Beast by Rachel Demeter (Book Review)

A couple of years ago I made a new online friend in author Rachel Demeter after I read her debut novel, The Frost of Springtime (which remains one of my most recommended books). I fell so in love with her storytelling in that novel that I immediately became a raving fan and I’ve basically cyber-stalked…

Too Blessed to be Stressed: 3-Minute Devotions for Women by Debora M. Coty (Book Review)

I downloaded Too Blessed to be Stressed: 3-Minute Devotions for Women by Debora Coty at least 6 months ago from NetGalley. I had so much going on between work, my blog, and my side hustle business that I wanted a quick way to reconnect throughout the day and help keep me focused. I do a longer…

The Officer’s Code by Lyn Alexander (Book Review)

I love reading historical fiction; it’s one of my favorite genres and despite how saturated the market is I continue reading it as much as possible in hopes that I’ll stumble across an amazing gem. I’ve read a lot of clunkers but I recently re-read The Officer’s Code by Lyn Alexander and remembered that there are truly…

How to Bond Over Books When Your Spouse Isn’t a Reader

I’ve always been a reader but from the very beginning of our relationship it’s one of the things that my husband and I didn’t have in common. I’d sit for hours and read while he’d spend time online, playing a video game, or watching a movie. I’d finish a book and launch in to this…

#30Authors Krystal Covington Reviews Grit by Angela Duckworth

I’m back with another round of #30Authors with my friend Allison from The Book Wheel. I joined in last year with this review of The Dark Road to Mercy. This year I’m featuring author Krystal Covington as she reviews Grit by Angela Duckworth.  First, what is #30Authors? #30Authors is an event started by The Book Wheel…

The House Girl by Tara Conklin (Book Review)

How long has it been since I shared a book review? Two months? Three months? I can’t even remember and when I can’t remember all I know is that it’s been too long. I actually finished The House Girl by Tara Conklin at least a month ago but I just never got around to reviewing it.…

The Railwayman’s Wife by Ashley Hay (Book Review)

The Railwayman’s Wife explores the power of beginnings and endings, and how hard it can sometimes be to tell them apart. Most of all, it celebrates love in all its forms, and the beauty of discovering that loving someone can be as extraordinary as being loved yourself. I joined the HFVBT book tour for The…

Behave by Andromeda Romano-Lax (Book Review)

I found Behave by Andromeda Romano-Lax a few weeks ago when I was browsing Netgalley for a few new titles to read. Initially I overlooked it because the cover turned me off. After reading Dear Thing by Julie Cohen (which led me to writing this post) I just wasn’t sure I could handle another book about children…
