The World That We Knew – Alice Hoffman

My Tried and True – The Great Believers

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads –  Every time I am asked to recommend a book, I immediately spew out THE GREAT BELIEVERS without a second of hesitation. A book that’s made my hysterically cry, daydream about more than I’d like to admit, and lent out more times than I can count sure deserves…

The Bookmarker’s Summer Reading Guide

It’s almost August 1st and I’m so very confused and sad at the same time. Where did summer go? For those of you who get summers off (super jealous) August may mean you are nearing the end. For those of you who work all year round (ugh, me) then you stretch summer out as looooong…

Because You’re Mine – Rea Frey

Oh, how I love Rea Frey. I feel like I can say this in a non-creepy way because unlike other authors I read, I’ve actually met her! Not only that, I’ve also interacted with her many times via social media. She’s very interactive with her followers and someone I look up to as a woman,…
