Hitting the Halfway Mark: The 10 Best Books of the Year (So Far!)

Hitting the Halfway Mark: The 10 Best Books of the Year (So Far!)

Somewhere in between school ending and starting again, and missing all my monthly wrap ups, we ended up in June. I’ve read 33 books so far this year, but since lately I’ve been on a roll with the Top Ten Tuesdays, I thought I would jump in today and talk about some of the best books I’ve read so far […]

Review: Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

Review: Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

Daisy and Nick and Helena and Hughes and Ed. Endless summers, five people, one family with layers of secrets between them. Tigers in Red Weather is always on lists of books that are ~perfect for summer~ but I’ve always missed it.

In Dare Me, readers are thrown into a pack of cheerleaders, and come to learn what makes them tick, where the alliances are, […]

10 Books I Can’t Wait to Read This Summer

I make these lists every single season, because I love making lists, and I really do have good intentions. But I know myself, and if I’m lucky I will read maybe three of these. I started my spring list pretty strong, but only made it through TWO. It’s sad. But other things grab my attention and I can’t help it. […]
