The Votes Are In

Thank you to all that voted on the books I would read for the Make Me Read It and Bout of Books readathons and for the month of August.

The Make Me Read It readathon. It’s hosted by  Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley runs from August 6th – 13th. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 months since the last Bout of Books and excited for BoB20, which will run from August 21-27. I’m sure it’ll be just as much fun.

Without further adieu, the breakdown. . . Continue reading

Weekly Smile: I Smiled and I Cried

I’m not going to go into a long introduction about this other than to say, I found this in my Google News feed.

Without further adieu watch this 2-year-old brighten up travelers day.

If you have something that makes you smile or made you smile this week, and I’m sure you do, let us know. The Weekly Smile is hosted by Trent over at Trent’s World and the premise is simple: share something or some things that made you smile during the week.

It’s Monday! What I’m Reading – August 1st

This is the definitely the shortest what I’m reading list ever.

Disclaimer: I checked Dark Matter by Blake Crouch from my local library because it was a regional title the bookstore I work at was promoting. This review reflects my unbiased opinion and as a result I am not able to promise a wholly positive review. My apologies in advance.

I decided to do something different with this review. Because I have so many thoughts about Dark Matter running around in my head. I decided to rein them in by answering a few of the Reader’s Guide questions. You can find all of them HERE. Continue reading

☕️Weekend Coffee Share☕️

If we were having coffee, I’d tell that this is my first coffee share on this blog. I have three blogs and two are currently inactive (20/20 Hines Sight and Inkslinger) and not because I don’t have any material. These past 12 months have been a roller coaster for me and they have taken a toll on me mentally, emotionally, and physically.

If we were having coffee, I would give the abbreviated version of the last 12 months. If you follow me over at 20/20 Hines Sight you may (or may not) remember Continue reading
