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…

My Favorite Romance Novels

Happy Valentine’s Day! Who’s in the mood for romance? I want to talk about books today and as I’m sure you’ve probably learned by now, I don’t read a lot of romance novels. It’s not my favorite genre and I find it, well, cheesy if I’m being honest. I’m always nervous to start one because…

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

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…

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.…
