I'm bringing yet another fantastic book rec from the lovley folks at Lone Star Lit Tours, Enemies of Doves by Shanessa Gluhm.  For the record, I absolutely love receiving books in the mail.

Book Review: Landing in My Present

Welcome back, everyone! It's been a few weeks since my last bookish post. LSBBT took a mini-break. I've also been scrambling to get my four-year-old ready for PreK (and battling mild freak-outs.) My birthday also passed this month, the eighth birthday I've spent without my grandma. You see, I was born on her birthday, and... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Key to Everything

Once upon a time, people took other people's word at face value. They genuinely sought to help their fellow neighbor out. Now we might call those people too trusting, and maybe they were? Surely there's always been ugliness in this world. This much stands as true today as it was in the Southern U.S., at... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Breakfast at the Honey Creek Cafe

Let me preface with this disclaimer: I love small-town stories. But especially small-town Texas. Why? Because I was raised in a small community, quite like the one found in author Jodi Thomas's Breakfast at the Honey Creek Cafe. So many people despair of small-town life, having lived under close scrutiny and the long memories which often accompany such.... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Caretakers by Eliza Maxwell

Haunting is the word that came to mind, from the moment I first saw the cover art for The Caretakers. Let it be known that first impressions are important, no matter what people prefer to believe. The contrast of a woman in yellow over the verdant green undergrowth, with mist hanging over the ghostly house, hints... Continue Reading →

Execution in E Mystery Series Spotlight

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you're holding together with me through the general madness happening in the world. As I work online and for a small international company, I've had a very unique perspective as the current crisis unfolded. More on that later, though. You're not here to hear yet another chat about the things... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Blue Skies by Anne Bustard

It's time for another dazzling five-star review, y'all. Trust me when I say I do not adore every book I read. What I have become quite proficient at, over the years instead, is when to say no. I say no to books I don't think I have the chance to love or appreciate. I always... Continue Reading →
