Monthly Goal Update

Yep, it's that time again. 1. Find something active to do indoors. The weather is finally starting to warm up, making this one slightly irrelevant (for the season, anyway).

In fact, I questioned her sanity for buying it… Continue reading Review: The Cassie Palmer series by Karen Chance


Coming up Short

I read 49 books this year, which means I was 3 short of the regular goal and 18 short of my personal goal (mostly because the only reading I had time to do during fall quarter… Continue reading Coming up Short
