#LoveAThon Mini-challenge #3: One Can Only Quote

 I love this challenge that Alexa came up with for the Book Blogger Love-A-Thon!  It’s the third mini challenge of the day (I didn’t participate in the book spine poetry challenge because I’m apparently awful at that or the second challenge, bookish Valentine’s because I’ve been filming BookTube videos all afternoon with Melissa Grey), but ...

Tea & Book Chat: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson (The Reckoners #1)

This book was sent to me by the publisher for review consideration.  This is no way swayed my opinion. Wow. Wow. Wow.  I do not say this lightly.  Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson is one of those rare books that is immediately fascinating from the first page.  It begins with a flashback recounted by the protagonist ...

Getting more personal in the posts on my blog has made me feel really good lately so I decided to continue incorporating these into my weekly schedule.  Besides the overwhelmingly positive responses I’ve received regarding the worst roommate ever and how I’ve been upgrading my life, I feel like I’ve gotten much closer to some ...

Pandemic Game Review

A few months ago (I’m behind, I know!) I had the opportunity to play Pandemic for the first time and I really loved it!  Pandemic is a board game that I’ve been dying to play but my board game friends had been reluctant to break it out because it’s challenging to win and they hadn’t ever done ...
