Have you seen my bookspiration? I seem to have lost it and desperately need it back. Why have I lost it, you ask? Because my headspace is everywhere these days, and I am blaming COVID. My 9-5 is in Healthcare and my husband farms, so we are still working full time, kids out of school… Continue reading BLOG POST: ISO My Bookspiration

This past weekend held a lot of drama in Romancelandia. People came out of the woodwork in support and in opposition of Lucia Franco’s book Balance, which was released back in 2016.

Do you do re-reads? Re-reads seems to be a 50/50 topic when discussed by readers and authors. Personally? I am a huge re-reader. If the book is a favorite of mine, I’ll re-read it till I almost can recite the entire thing by memory. When I am in a reading funk or just feeling down,… Continue reading BLOG POST: Re-reads
