Book Review: What Have You Done

At the beginning of January, I reactivated my Kindle Unlimited membership. Amazon Prime had a deal going for it, so I decided it would be a good time to renew. I'll probably deactivate once my deal is up (I use it primarily for audiobooks and I have access to those through my library for free), … Continue reading Book Review: What Have You Done


Book Review: Rock Needs River

I received Rock Needs River by Vanessa McGrady from Kindle First, a perk of Amazon Prime that allows Prime members to chose one book to have for free before it is published. Adoption holds a special place in my heart (as it does for many!) so this book was an obvious choice for me. I … Continue reading Book Review: Rock Needs River

Working From Home: How Not to Join an MLM

On Tuesday, I went into great detail concerning why it is unwise to join a multi-level marketing (MLM) company. You may also know these companies as direct sales. I talked about how they prey on women who are in places of need, like stay at home moms and military wives. But here's the thing: I … Continue reading Working From Home: How Not to Join an MLM

Book Review: Surprised By Joy

Surprised by Joy by C. S. Lewis is one of those books that is a "reread" for me this year. I love this book. Lewis has been one of my favorite writers since I was a child, listening to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe being read to me for the first time. Lewis has a knack for … Continue reading Book Review: Surprised By Joy

Book Review: The Long Hello

The Long Hello by Cathie Borrie has been sitting in my Kindle library for a while. I can't remember if this was a free pick from Amazon Prime or if I got it for free or cheap from a BookBub e-mail. But, I remember getting excited about the premise and snagging it immediately. And then never … Continue reading Book Review: The Long Hello

Book Review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is among my top ten favorite books of all time. This action-packed, throwback-filled, exciting trip back to the 80s, set in the not-so-distant future. I first read this book back in late 2016, and picked it up to read again in anticipation of the movie being released this week … Continue reading Book Review: Ready Player One

Book Review: Lexicon

I picked up Lexicon by Max Barry several years ago after spotting it in Barnes and Noble and being immediately drawn in by the title. I am obsessed with language and words and this book and its premise seemed like a perfect "Rose book." I remember jumping into it as soon as I could, excited for this … Continue reading Book Review: Lexicon

Book Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman is mysterious, odd, mesmerizing, mystical, terrifying, and refreshing all at once. I received a copy of this book as a Christmas gift several years ago. Back then I read it in one sitting, and I would have today if it were not for adult … Continue reading Book Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Book Review: The Help

This was actually my second time reading through The Help by Kathryn Stockett. This book is absolute perfection. It deals with race issues in the deep South, in the small town of Jackson, Mississippi. What I love about this book is that it focuses on the day-to-day problems, not just the broad issues like Jim Crow laws … Continue reading Book Review: The Help
