2015 Goodreads Stats

2012: 42 books 2013: 48 books 2014: 135 books 2015: 154 books It hardly comes as a surprise but 2015 was the year of reading bodice-ripping romance novels, which probably explains why I read 154 books this year! Only a few novels were children books, even fewer YA, mostly mysteries, paranormal romances, motorcycle romances, and … Continue reading

New Release: Blood Magick by Nora Roberts

I’m a huge fan of everything Nora Roberts writes, whether its futuristic murder mysteries under her pseudonym, JD Robb, or her romances with touches of magic, or her contemporary romantic-thrillers. This is the final book in a trilogy filled with magic, set in Ireland, somewhat reminiscent of her Key trilogy, but equally delightful. Blook Magick, … Continue reading

Book Review: The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith

I’m an unabashed fan of Jennifer E. Smith. I say unabashed because she doesn’t write what I typically read, and sometimes when I read things outside of my norm, I feel like I have to justify them. Luckily for me, these books can stand on their own two feet. First and foremost, the author is … Continue reading

Book Review: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown Holly Black 978-0316213103, Little, Brown, Hardcover, $19 What I love most about Holly Black as a writer is that she makes it seem so easy to completely explode apart a genre with her own unique take. Holly Black: “So, you think you know all about mythical creatures? Bam! The Spiderwick … Continue reading

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
