Hello! It's time for a pre-order post and I'm super excited by all the books that are being published throughout this second half of the year. They sound absolutely amazing, and I'm nearly willing time to speed up so that I can get my hands on them. I am fine with being patient and waiting, … Continue reading July to December ’19 Pre-Orders
My reading log and stats for the first half and a bit of 2019.
Wow, what a wordy title. It is however the perfect description for the three books I want to talk about in this post because they do leave me with conflicted feelings. They are books I read in June that I hoped would be fast-paced, and deliver on hype surrounding them. Yeah...maybe not. First off, we've … Continue reading “I can’t decide how I feel about these books” Mini Reviews.
Here's a book to excite all readers. Here is a book that I (Sarah) pushed under Emma's nose and forced her to read because I knew how much she would love it. Eleven year-old Tilly has lived above her grandparents' bookshop ever since her mother disappeared shortly after she was born. Like the rest of … Continue reading Pages and Co: Tilly and the Book Wanderers
Never in my blogging life am I so happy and excited to write and post a reading wrap up because this is the month where I conquered my reading slump and became addicted to a new crime/romantic suspense series!

It is such a fun tag and one that really gets us thinking about our book habits and how addicted we might … Continue reading Book Addiction Book Tag
I never quite know where to start with blogging update posts so if I start rambling, forgive me. I'm not exactly in the best of places right now due to family illness and responsibility and it is starting to affect my reading, my writing, and everything that comes in-between. You might have already noticed that … Continue reading Blogging Updates and Upcoming Reads.
As readers of fiction we all love the fact that as soon as we open a new book and read that first line, reality fades and fantasy comes to life. It's akin to walking under the Main Street Railroad station, turning onto Main Street USA and seeing that Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella castle straight ahead. … Continue reading Books Filled With ‘Magic’
Hello! I'm back from a couple weeks hiatus and I could say it was intentional but I'd be lying. A reading slump pushed me into a blogging slump (as per usual) and life happened. Anyway you don't need to know any of that. I might do an update at some point, but not now. Now … Continue reading My Desert Island Discs
