Review: Where’s Buddha by Marisa Aragon Ware

You guys, I’m a bookseller, and that means I’m picking up books all the time: new books I happen to check in at my store, used books I see on the shelf, ARCs and finished copies at conferences. I’m also a book tourist, so I stop by independent bookstores whenever I travel and buy at […]

Review: Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell

A note on the audiobook: This is an audio experience. Malcolm Gladwell talks about it a bit in the beginning. He chose to use audio recordings of interviews, etc., wherever available instead of just reading the quotes himself. There’s music spattered throughout. It’s kind of a book/podcast. It is not just a direct reading of […]

Review: Chosen by Kiersten White

This is the sequel to Slayer, so if you haven’t read it, go do that real fast, then come back. Also, Chosen doesn’t come out until January 2020, but go ahead and preorder it so you don’t forget. You’re going to want it. I received an ARC because I demanded it from a publisher rep […]

Book Review: Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren

Twice in a Blue Moon is one of those books I gave up sleep to finish. I wouldn’t have thought that would be the case in the beginning, but there it is. I’m not giving anything away here you won’t read in a synopsis. This is a second chance at love story. The book begins […]

Review: The Enlightenment of Bees by Rachel Linden

I’m going to be honest. I got this audiobook as an ALC in my job as a bookseller, and downloaded it at the same time as several other books. By the time I got to it, I couldn’t remember what it was about. I’m embarrassed to say that for a while I thought it was […]

Review: Outfox by Sandra Brown

I have read three Sandra Brown novels before and adored all of them, so I went into this one with high expectations. That was probably my mistake. When I go in expecting something phenomenal, I automatically start picking apart any flaws. Overall, I did enjoy this book, so go ahead and read the rest of […]

Review: Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

First of all, I finished this book two days ago, but I haven’t had a chance to write a review, because mom life. Also, migraines. Luckily, my boys let me sleep last night, so I’m feeling much better. Second, this book begins the major differences between the novels and the show, so if you think […]

Review: What We Talk About When We Talk About Books by Leah Price

Like most crazy book people, I love a good book on books. I love cozy mysteries set in the book world, like Buried in Books. I love books about book clubs, like The Dirty Book Club. I even like literary fiction with outright and so hidden you might not have noticed them if the author […]

Momming’s Hard, but the Reading’s Easy

I was wise enough to expect that becoming a mom to littles again would change my reading life. I just thought it only meant there would be less of it for a while. What I’ve found instead, is that it has dramatically changed how I read. When we started our partnership with Kobo at my […]
