The Book Titles Tag

The Book Titles Tag

What a fun tag! I found this one by Eden at Thrice Read. The idea is to answer the question with the title of a book. I decided to include books I’ve read as well as books on my TBR. 1. Title that’s the story of your life  Life Disrupted 2. Title that describes your perfect weekend  The Hiding Place 3. Title of an adventure you’d like to go on

July Book Haul

July Book Haul

All blurbs are from Goodreads. I picked two books from Book of the Month this month. The Child by Fiona Barton (2017). I’m not much into suspense novels, but this one sounds pretty intriguing. “As an old house is demolished in a gentrifying section of London, a workman discovers a tiny skeleton, buried for years. Journalist Kate Waters cobbles together a piece for her newspaper, but at a loss for answers, she can only pose a question: Who is the Building…

How I Choose My Books Tag

How I Choose My Books Tag

It’s hard to find a decent book tag out there that doesn’t make me want to cringe. Which is why I am so happy to have found this one! This is a book tag I picked up from Stephanie at Adventures of a Bibliophile and was originally created by Jenn at Thrice Read. Thanks for the creative ideas, ladies! Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up that book in the first place? How…

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

I saw this tag over at Jacquie’s blog, Rattle the Stars, and decided to participate! Thanks for your inspirational post, Jacquie! ? (Like, a month ago, but hey!) I guess since it’s the middle of July, we are indeed more than halfway through 2017 already. Mind blown. Given that I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands, I’ve made it a goal to read a lot this year. It’s going pretty well so far, so let’s see what I’ve…

It’s July; What Am I Reading?

It’s July; What Am I Reading?

I have a reading problem. It’s amazing the number of ways that statement could be interpreted… I mean…   (And yes, those are my TBR shelves…or at least two of the three…but the third one is really just a single cube shelf…) But no, what I really mean is, I have this problem where I can’t ever be reading just one book at once. The only exception is if I happen to pick up a book that is so good…

Are You Like Me?

Are You Like Me?

I think I need to take a break from reading memoirs. But I can’t seem to stop. My last four books: Still Waiting by Ann Swindell. Faithfully encouraging and integrates the story of the Bleeding Woman (one of my favorite parts of the Gospels). “From my own perspective, I couldn’t see any reason why God wouldn’t heal me, why He wouldn’t change my struggle into a victorious cure. Wouldn’t He get all the glory? All the doctors and therapies and supplements…

Share Your World: Ribbonrx Edition: April 3, 2017

Share Your World: Ribbonrx Edition: April 3, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Unfortunately, Cee has been ill and wasn’t able to prepare the challenge questions for this week, but fear not! I pulled out some questions from a journal prompt I did last week that fits the bill! So, onward! What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way? I guess it depends on how old-fashioned you’re talking about. I love modern technology;…

Goodreads 2017 Challenge: January Wrap-Up

Goodreads 2017 Challenge: January Wrap-Up

This is something new and a bit different for me. I recently decided I wanted to start reading again and demanded a serious book haul for Christmas to instill that long lost feeling of reading all day and doing nothing else. If anything, I figured it might help keep my cognition up, as the brain fog from my POTS is practically a disability at this point. So this is an attempt to get my brain back. I signed up for…
