How to Get Up Early + My Ideal Morning Routine

I always have a more difficult time getting out of bed early when the temperature reaches below the freezing point but I’ve found that this year has been even more challenging than years past.  I still wake up at 5AM. Once my alarm goes off, I’m up and even if I lay in bed with ...

2017 Reading Challenges

New year, new reading challenges! This post a bit belated seeing as how 2017 started almost two weeks ago at this point but as I’ve said, things have been kind of crazy around here lately so I’m behind on some things.  I didn’t even finish my first book of the year until a couple of ...

January Small Goals

I’ve seen a bunch of people post small monthly goals and I really like the idea of re-centering and re-evaluating everything more frequently.  It’s awesome to make yearly goals but it’s also easy to lose focus or forget about them entirely over the 365 day period we’re aiming to accomplish them in.  Having small monthly ...

It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessed with Alexandra Bracken’s Passenger since I first read it last Christmas.  In fact, it sits prominently displayed on my favorites shelf facing outward so I can admire the gorgeous cover every time I look over at my bookshelves.  What initially piqued my interest about the story was the prospect ...

My Personal Best Nine of 2016 (& a Wedding Photo Collage)!

I wanted to make a personal best nine of 2016 from my iPhone camera roll without relying on the instagram algorithm website everyone has been using in addition to the one I did post on my instagram as well.  I spent about 20 minutes writing this out as a Facebook post, only to have Facebook ...

Tea & Book Chat: Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson & Robin Wasserman

I realize I will have to format this review a bit differently, otherwise it would go on forever! I’m not going to be giving a synopsis for each of the short stories but I will give you a brief glimpse of my feelings for each.  Overall, I didn’t love this as much as I was ...

Tea & Book Chat: Shuffle, Repeat by Jen Klein

Personal Thoughts:  After reading Caraval and Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy, I was really craving a solid contemporary read.  I tend to like switching up genres often so after so much time in other worlds, I felt ready to revisit our own.  I had remembered that Alexa and Rachel both enjoyed reading Shuffle, Repeat and ...
