Starting with books for younger readers and working my way up to books that I hope to share with the youth in my life as they mature.
I work in a bookstore, so it's pretty safe to say that I love books. I'm not obsessed with books like some people I have met, but I do really love a great book... especially when it's a book about books. I think that anyone who really loves books gets a bit of a thrill from when reading about other bibliophiles.

I did manage to celebrate my 7th wedding anniversary with... Continue Reading →
You all know my weakness for books about books, so it should come as no surprise that I had to read The Invisible Library. I wrote about it in a Wishlist Wednesday not long ago, and actually preordered it just to make sure I had it on hand the moment it was released. Synopsis: Irene... Continue Reading →
Since the June OwlCrate theme is 'royalty', and it was hinted that some of the content might be related to Red Queen and The Lunar Chronicles, I figured I should at least read one of the books that was mentioned. Red Queen has been promoted a lot lately in my store, so I figured I... Continue Reading →
