I didn’t want to miss getting up a post dedicated to Women’s History Month and sharing the numerous female authors I enjoy reading. I made sure to include a mix of authors/novels I’ve read on my own and for classes. Of course this list is only a short sampling of women I enjoy reading, but be sure to check out my Goodreads page where I keep track of what I’ve read and what I’m currently reading. (And feel free to add me–I love seeing what others are reading!) Continue reading
I know Black History Month was last month, but I wanted to write a post that focuses on novels by black writers that I have read or that are on my TBR list. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have a very diverse reading list, but I’m making a goal to change this. Continue reading
I think all bookworms are guilty of buying more books than they can read–and I’m not exempt from that fact. As I was thinking about what books I should pick up next, I realized I probably already have some on my shelf that haven’t read; and of course, I was right.

All of these are newer releases, but I just haven’t gotten around to picking up a copy (or, for some, the waiting list has been way too long at my library). Psychological crime/thriller books are definitely “in,” and I think Gone Girl has a lot to do with that. Continue reading
It seems like there is always at least one movie in theaters that was first a book, and I like to try to read the book before seeing the movie. I was recently browsing lists of book-based movies that are coming out in 2017 and thought it would be a good idea to share some of the ones I’m interested in reading before seeing. Continue reading
Obviously it would be hard to name every character I’ve ever fallen in love with, so I’m trying to limit myself to books I’ve read within the past year or so. I don’t think there’s any rhyme or reason to this list, and if you put them in a room with one another, I’m curious as to what kind of party that would create. This probably just shows how my literary interests are all over the place.
I thought it would be fun to share some of the books that are on my current wishlist. I asked for a few of these for Christmas, so here’s hoping Santa brings me one or two!
