Book Review: The Glass Castle

I am pretty good at keeping up with trending books, but every once in awhile I will find a book where I totally missed the boat. I was scouring Good Will and I saw a copy of The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I remembered seeing it on Goodreads and that my friend Janessa had rated it 5 stars so I decided to pick it up. Even then, it sat on my shelf for awhile before I finally decided to read it.

Book Review + Giveaway: Every Breath

A couple of weeks ago I went to go see Nicholas Sparks speak in Omaha and I wrote about it here. It only felt appropriate to write a review of his latest novel and I decided to do a giveaway! I’ve wanted to do one for awhile so I am definitely excited for this to be my first!

Check out my review, and then the rules for entry will be beneath the review. Here we go!

Book Review: When All Is Said

A few weeks back I picked up a book at Afterword Tavern & Shelves: Kansas City. I grabbed When All Is Said by Anne Griffin. I was intrigued by the cover, and the description of the book. It sounded heartfelt, and a change of pace from the kind of books I seem often to gravitate towards.

Blind Date With A Book/ARC Review: Someone Knows

Back in February I visited Tulsa with some friends– I wrote about it here. While I was there I stumbled into a book store called Magic City Books.

If I see a bookstore I have to go in. While I was there I spotted a basket near the register that advertised a blind date with a book. The books were gift wrapped with a few bullet points to give you an idea of what the book was about.

Book Review: The Greatest Love Story Ever Told

One of my guilty pleasures in this world is reading celebrity memoirs. I don’t know why I enjoy them so much. Maybe it’s my own bookish version of reading gossip magazines– except I know I’m getting information straight from the source.

My latest pick from this genre is The Greatest Love Story Ever Told by Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman.

Afterword Tavern & Shelves: Kansas City

Something I have really been trying to work on is to be a tourist in my own city. Kansas City has so many really cool places that I know I would check out if I were just visiting, but I always put off because I tell myself I have so much time but every once in awhile comes a place I know I have check out sooner rather than later.

Afterword Tavern & Shelves is one of those places. I’ve been chomping at the bit to go as soon as I heard about it.

Book Review: The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

I recently joined an online-based book club and the pick this month was The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. The book was already on my endless TBR list so I was really excited to dive in. I was intrigued instantly. The title itself makes you think. I also love how Gatsby-esque the cover appears. I am a sucker for Gatsby.

My January Reads

I set a goal to read 40 books in 2019 and I think I’m off to a pretty good start. I read a total of 9 books in January. I know I am posting this a little late but I still wanted to share what I read so far and how I felt about those books.

I Might Regret This (Too)

It’s funny how sometimes things in life find us right when we need them. My friend (and former roomie) Danielle and I ended up exchanging Christmas gifts pretty late this year, but, it turns out that kind of worked out. Danielle bought me a copy of I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson.
