“Latitudes of Longing” by Shubhangi Swarup: ARC Review

First off, what?? I won a Goodreads giveaway!? What in the heck is up with that? I have never heard of anyone winning one of those things, likely due to the fact that the number of people entering is typically about 142,209,931 and the number of available copies is 1. Anyway, I got an ARC,… Continue reading “Latitudes of Longing” by Shubhangi Swarup: ARC Review

Book review round-up: I have, in fact, reviewed some books

Hey! It's me again! Look at me go! I figured while I'm figuring out how to start my blog back up again that I would share some of the things I've been up to while I've been gone (besides snuggling).

Did my relationship replace my blog?? (and P.S. I got engaged!)

Why hello there. How do I start these things, again? Ahem. I would like to talk to you about blogging and relationships. As you may or may not know, in my youth, I was a regular blogger. (And by "in my youth" I mean about 3 years ago, and by "regular" I mean on-the-regular as… Continue reading Did my relationship replace my blog?? (and P.S. I got engaged!)

Look at me, reviewing books again all bloggy-like! I'm a tad late re-sharing this post, but since this is one of those hot-bloggy-YA titles, I figured I would share it on here.

I’m alive and I wrote a book review! Book Review: “Literary Places” by Sarah Baxter — MuggleNet.com Book Trolley

OMG, it me! I'm alive! Here's proof: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bv7dameHahy/ I've been living in sunny Florida for over a year now, being a librarian, living with my boyfriend, and spending most of my time and money being a Disney passholder (see Instagram account, which is basically all Disney now). It is quite excellent. I still volunteer at… Continue reading I’m alive and I wrote a book review! Book Review: “Literary Places” by Sarah Baxter — MuggleNet.com Book Trolley

Explanation: this summer I took a course in Adult Popular Literature and Reader's Advisory (the librarian term for how to recommend books to people). For the course, we were required to read about 9 novels from… Continue reading So I read a Harlequin romance…
