Book Review: A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

Book Review: A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

I've reached that sweet spot in my reading list where I can finally pick books to read off my shelf that I simply want to read. I don't want to seem like I'm complaining, because I love working with different organizations to review books, creating reading lists, etc....

Radio Segment: New Year’s Resolutions!

So I've been reading a few non-fiction books lately in anticipation of recording this radio segment, mainly because I know people will want to read some books to get them motivated in January. As I mention at the beginning, I will never promote a dieting book,...

Books Ive Read in 2017* (This one actually works!)

Holiday Advent Calendar Unveiling: December 20

Holiday Advent Calendar Unveiling: December 19

There's alot going on in this video; I'm wearing a bathrobe, I reveal my blog branded mug, and my husband interrupts my recording. But the most important thing of note is that this is the first short story that is holiday themed-yay! And I really enjoyed it. There are...

Holiday Advent Calendar Unveiling: December 18

So thankfully I liked today's story more than the previous two; it's a quirky little number that got me thinking, and I'm still pondering it now. I also have a surprise for you chocolate lovers (especially you, FictionFan!), because I just received a hefty Christmas...
