A mission to Mars gone wrong. The battle to survive is on.
Salutations, book worms! The next selection for the Bookish Reading Challenge took me to the heart of the American South: Montgomery, Alabama. There, we meet the beautiful, boisterous Zelda Sayre and the charismatic F. Scott Fitzgerald. Therese Anne Fowler gives an extraordinary and often misunderstood Jazz Age Darling the voice she longed to use. Z: A … Continue reading Love First, Live Incidentally (#shareitsaturday)
Slowly but surely, I'm checking off the categories on the Bookish Reading Challenge list. I recently finished two books.

I've always been interested in Indian culture and … Continue reading Widows, Unite! (#shareitsaturday)
Happy Valentine's Day! or Galentine's, Palentine's, Singles Awareness Day, what have you. I have started another reading challenge for 2018! Bookish is challenging everyone to #killyourTBR and I intend to do just that; there are way too many books on my TBR. I started with the prompt, "a book told through letters" and chose Rosie Dunne … Continue reading Where Rainbows End (#readingwednesday)
Well, here we are a week into the new year. I, unfortunately, could not finish the Instagram challenge on time. However, I made it halfway through. For the "Author You Already Love", I went with Melissa De La Cruz. As a teen, I loved the Blue Bloods series and enjoyed The Ring and the Crown. It's primarily her … Continue reading American Austen (#shareitsaturday)
