Way, way, way back, many moons ago, I challenged myself to "Read 20 Pulitzer Prize winning fiction books." That didn't happen. Thanksgiving week, I challenged myself to finish a different challenge. I wrote all about that challenge on my book blog. Check it out here! In 2021, I plan to continue this Book Hoarder challenge.… Continue reading 2020 Reading Challenge
I recently read And Then There Were Nun by Jane Christmas. It's the story of Jane entering a convent to decide if that was her calling. In one chapter, she begins discussing Catholic prayers and the changes prayers have taken over the years. People, teachers, parents, etc. are modernizing the language of prayers to make them more… Continue reading Words, words, words
I have a book blog, but I figured I could share little blurbs about what I've read, what I'm reading, and what I will read. I just finished a book called The Light Between Oceans, by M.L. Stedman, which was absolutely beautiful and brilliant. It's one of those books where if I had more patience, I… Continue reading My Reads
Time for new goals! I'm going to keep some goals that I really enjoyed from the previous year, and I'll also throw in some extras. Don't go more than two weeks without blogging I want to keep this blog up, and when I get busy, I forget to write. Hopefully this year I can continue… Continue reading What I want for 2020
One of my resolutions for 2019 was to read one chapter of the Harry Potter series each day. I'm the type who reads the entire series in a week (or less), so limiting how often, how much, and how many times I can read through the series has been a challenge, but a good one. I… Continue reading My Harry Potter Challenge Update
I just finished reading 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster yesterday, and to read my review, check out this post. It was a long, slow book for me, and I was so thrilled to finish it. I stopped thinking about as soon as I finished, but today, the one line I wrote down was… Continue reading Why do I read again?

One of my resolutions this year was to read a chapter of Harry Potter each day. Just one chapter. I thought it would be challenging yet rewarding. I was pretty correct. This morning, I read the last chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (I started a few days late because I was out of… Continue reading Reading Harry Potter. Again.
With a new year comes new challenges, hopes, and dreams. This year, I'm going to attempt to be more deliberate about the resolutions I've set for myself in the hopes that I'll keep them. Last year, my only resolution was to finish an ABC reading challenge, and it was great when I accomplished that. This… Continue reading My 2019 Goals
I've got a continually growing book list. It seems like, with the amount of time I spend reading, my list should be getting smaller, but it's not. It's getting longer and longer. I read all the time, but I'm not actively reading books on my to-read list, which makes me question the purpose of a… Continue reading My to-read list
