You Were There Too – Colleen Oakley

(are we friends on Goodreads?!) I’ve been teetering between a 3 and 4 star rating for You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley. I truly did enjoy this book and it was a solid 3.5/4 stars for me up until the very end, which I felt was incessantly rushed and kind of out of left field. With…

February Wrap Up

It’s pretty crazy that it’s already March! 2020 is flying by and the reality that we get married next month is really sinking in. As planning is dwindling, I’ve been able to focus more time on my reading life which has been so productive and fulfilling. They say February is the month of love – I for…

The Grace Year – Kim Liggett

I finished The Grace Year a few days ago and have been trying to collect my thoughts on this book. I’ve been scouring Goodreads and reviews to read others’ thoughts and compare to my own interpretation (yes, this is what I do in my spare time LOL). I’m honestly struggling to find the words to…

Tell Me Three Things – Julie Buxbaum

My first Young Adult book of the year goes to Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum. It’s been on my list for quite some time now, as I remember seeing it among the shelves of a local bookstore last year and distinctly remember I liked the cover. Heart-shaped waffles, how cute! This book is so much…

A new year means new exhilarating reads that saturate your email, Instagram, and Goodreads feed! I’ve asked some bookish friends, consulted my favorite book blogs, and done a bit of research to build my own comprehensive “2020’s Most Anticipated Reads” list, so you don’t have to! This list is pretty inclusive with books ranging from…

It Ends With Us – Colleen Hoover

– follow me on Goodreads! –  After reading Verity by Colleen Hoover, I knew It Ends With Us would be just as good. Side note: if you haven’t read Verity, stop what you’re doing and go read this book (and then come back to this review!). Seriously. Your mind will be blown, without a doubt. You can read all about what…

Life Update

I’m a bit embarrassed – ok, A LOT embarrassed – that I have been completely slacking with updating this blog. This is the longest stretch of time that I haven’t updated or posted and I’m kind of beating myself up about it. No one told me that wedding planning would quite literally suck away all…

Why Reading With Family Is So Important

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads! –  Who else loves when family members join you in your crazy obsession with books?! My nieces, specifically Haidyn, love to read! Every Christmas I’ve gifted her books and there’s something so special and nostalgic about gifting books that YOU also loved to read as a young girl,…

A Touch of Nostalgia

– follow me on Instagram + Goodreads –  I was rearranging my bookshelves over the weekend and came across two books that hit me with major nostalgia. Keep Love in Your Heart, Little One and Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends are two books that hold such sentimental value to my heart. You know those books that you don’t always pick…
