September Reading Wrap-Up

This month I read my first Colleen Hoover novel, finally finished A Throne of Glass series and continued my complicated relationship with the American Royals series. Reviews below… Verity by Colleen Hoover Totally honesty, almost skipped this book because of a TikTok that did not recommend this book. Literally a day or two after IContinue reading “September Reading Wrap-Up”

August 2022 Reading Wrap-Up

The books were en fuego this month! My eldest daughter loves to read in bed with me at night – it’s our little tradition. Since the evening activities haven’t started yet, we’ve had even more time to read. Hours of reading at night with my girl is something I treasure. Anyway, on to the reads!Continue reading “August 2022 Reading Wrap-Up”

July 2022 Reading Wrap-Up

After a jam-packed June, my July reading is lighter than prior months. In my defense, I was starting up a podcast (read more about that here) and one of the books was really long! Like 600 pages long (Sarah J. Maas get thee an editor)! But, as the old adage goes, it’s quality over quantity,Continue reading “July 2022 Reading Wrap-Up”

June 2022 Reading Wrap-Up

This is coming at ya a little late because I was on vacation and actually decided to leave my computer at home for once. June was filled with reads that sit very high in the LB ranking system (for those new here I rate books on a scale of 1 to 5 Lindsey Buckingham’s –Continue reading “June 2022 Reading Wrap-Up”

May 2022 Reading Wrap Up

After a lengthy hiatus, book reviews are back! I’m going to try to make this a regular thing – – for real this time – and review books I read the previous month the first week of the current month. That reads incredibly clunky – really killing it as a novice writer, Meredith! You knowContinue reading “May 2022 Reading Wrap Up”

Jan. 2021 Reads

I almost forgot to blog about this, which would be a shame, because I read a crap ton of books in Jan. I don’t know what it was, maybe the start of a new year, a blank slate, but I was starving for literature. I’m surprised Goodreads wasn’t like, “Girl, take a breath.” But withContinue reading “Jan. 2021 Reads”

My Top 5 Books of 2020

“Why do you read like you’re running out of time?” Or something like that. Somehow – in 2020 – with 3 kids, including a newborn AND a pandemic I read 53 books. That’s more than a book a week (look I can do maths!) I read voraciously at the start of the year because IContinue reading “My Top 5 Books of 2020”

October Reads

Well THIS is a tad delayed! October was a busy month for reading, but clearly that didn’t translate into a new blog post. I’ll be honest, I was sucked into a Steve Kornacki vortex of Khaki Pants and Big Boards and basically forgot how to read. I’m not even sure I’ll have November reads toContinue reading “October Reads”

Anger & Revolution

This morning I woke up thinking about the Rebecca Traister’s book “Good & Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger,” which I read about a year after 45’s Inauguration. I’m thinking specifically about the part where Traister writes about suburban white women typically voting along with their husbands; feeling secure in their patriarchy adjacent privilegeContinue reading “Anger & Revolution”
