2021 – first quarter standouts

Hi bookworms, I think I've decided on a wrap-up format for this year. I'l be doing quarterly updates discussing the books that stood out. As I said in a previous post, I have been primarily reading contemporary romances and have been loving it. Looking through my nifty google doc, they have also been all by… Continue reading 2021 – first quarter standouts

I’ve been really quiet around here …

Hi bookworms, I know I don't need to tell anyone that the last year has been, let's say unique, but what I really mean is stressful and exhausting. One of the big concessions I made was to stop blogging and reviewing ARCs. My reading was inconsistent and I didn't feel I could provide insightful evaluations… Continue reading I’ve been really quiet around here …

Hour 24 – and we are done

... and this is it, another Dewey's readathon is in the books, literally. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did.

Hour 1 – let’s begin

Good morning readathoners, We are in the first hour of our 24 hr readathon and I'm still a bit sluggish. I decided to start today with an audiobook (a first for me!).

Another October, another Dewey’s readathon

What is it? Dewey's readathon is a worldwide 24 hour reading event. The point is to make time for reading that day and read more than you usually do. It is for everyone and there are no rules other than that we all start at the same time. Lots of us keep track of how… Continue reading Another October, another Dewey’s readathon

And thus concludes my September

Hi there, We are basically still in the first week of October ;), so I am not super late on my September wrap-up. I had a nice September full of fall decorations, late summer weather but cool fall nights, soup, and some favorite movies. I read 5 books, which is a lot less than I… Continue reading And thus concludes my September

And thus concludes my August

Hi there, I had a pretty tumultuous ending to August and beginning of September, which is why I am late with my monthly wrap-up and also weren't able to complete my goals for #WITMonth. I had great momentum from the #reversereadathon but then lost steam because of, ... well, .... life. I had some family… Continue reading And thus concludes my August

ARC – Little Deadly Secrets by Pamela Crane

Thriller | 384 pages | 08.18.2020 | William Morrow Paperbacks 1 STAR Ugh, I can't even begin to say how many things were wrong with this book. First of all, it was a sad attempt int replicating the format that worked for Big Little Lies. The several POVs really added nothing to the story. Secondly,… Continue reading ARC – Little Deadly Secrets by Pamela Crane
