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.

(Not that I would care anyway, to be honest.) I have a love/hate relationship with the snow. I love how it looks, and I love how peaceful it can feel. But I hate the inevitable task of digging out my car or getting snow inside of my shoes.
