Day 5 of Parajunkee’s blog hop 12 Days of Book Blogmas!  Today’s post is: Hmm, and I thought the Naughty List was challenging…  Most characters I like would be considered “nice”, but lucky for you, I don’t have twenty hours to spend typing up a comprehensive list of nice characters and cross referencing it to […]

Book selections like this is why I started The Midnight Book Club in the first place.  Sarah picked this book by Sue Monk Kidd because she had loved The Secret Life of Bees so much.  I ended up liking this book even more than TSLoB. Based on the true story of the Grimke sisters, whom […]

BookCoverThenCameYou

In order to review as many books as possible without stressing myself out, I’m going to be super mini- tweet style reviews to balance my usual review style.

Audio Review of Driving Mr. Dead

BookCoverDrivingMr.Dead

I love audio books. In the author’s notes on the audio version of Joe Hill’s NOS4A2, he talks about how the first stories we learn are read to us. I listen to audio books when I’m in the car, shopping, and playing Candy Crush. In typical book blogger fashion, I already have a tbr shelf […]

Day 2 of Parajunkee‘s 12 Days of Book Blogmas!  Today’s challenge was to post a Christmas card.  If I could draw worth a damn, I would have done a Hogwarts inspired Christmas card that would have left you begging for me to open an Etsy shop… but I can’t draw worth a damn, despite many […]
