Spine Study :: Enemy Women

I had this goal, awhile back, to read more books set in Missouri, especially local areas. All in all, Missouri is a state rich with history – a popular travel and trade hub throughout the development of the United States, beautiful landscapes marred by scars from the Civil War, and a culture much its own. […]

Top 5 Wednesday :: Favorite Covers

Ima be real with y’all – last week’s Top 5 Wednesday was challenging AF. And I liked it. Therefore –> I’m going to dig a little deeper into this week’s prompt over at the Goodreads group = “favorite covers.” In the spirit of bookish-challenge, let’s narrow down some of my favorite covers for very specific reasons. Favorite […]

Looking back – I literally gobbled up Holmberg’s previously published Paper Magician series when they first came out. I adored Ceony and Emery’s […]

Best Color Combo I love white books. Don’t ask […]

Top 5 Wednesday :: Dear Younger Me

Decided to go in a little different direction for the Top 5 Wednesday prompt this week. (Check out the Goodreads Group here!) The topic this week is all about hindsight – books you would suggest for your younger self, books you wish you would’ve read “back then”, books that would’ve helped with your confidence and/or opened your […]

An Intimate Conversation: My Exploration Into Christian Literature

When was the last time you had a truly intimate conversation? in·ti·mate ˈin(t)əmət/ adjective – closely acquainted; familiar, close – private and personal. The thing is, I grew up surrounded by strong, Christian influence. Sort of what I like to think of as “down-home” believers: hard-working, giving, compassionate, faithful, honest people who knew the difference […]
