In The Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness – the first book of the All Souls Trilogy – readers meet a witch named Diana Bishop. She’s a witch who never mastered her craft and altogether avoided it for a majority of her life, mostly because she blames her parents’ death on magic.
But, of course, what a woman wants is rarely tied to fate. Through a series of accidents (at least that’s how they appear) Diana meets the vampire Matthew Clairemont and her life changes forever.

The New Year is here and I guess that means it’s time to look forward and set my goals and intentions for the year. I’ve never really been big on resolutions, but I do often use this time to set milestones or hopeful achievements for myself. I’m not looking to change who I am or seek a huge life discovery, but I do like having a plan.
Throughout 2020, and most of 2019, I went on a bit of a personal journey where I moved out of the fog of motherhood and began to discover things I love all over again.

But no one prepares you for how you almost forget what your hobbies are, what you enjoy doing in your “you” time that refills you.
It’s Day 13 in the #WonderlandBookChallenge and the prompt for the day is “Ornament – Favorite Bookish Merch.” I do a LOT of scrolling on Etsy, so I thought this would be a good time to put together my Bookish Wishlist. These are the stores and items I keep coming back to, eventually talking myself […]
This month I am participating in the #WonderlandBookChallenge on Instagram. Each day in December has a different wintery theme, and I’ll be posting all month. I’ve really liked some of my pictures I’ve posted so far, so I thought it would be fun to post a gallery to the blog. I’ll update this throughout the […]
Before we get into this review – go ahead and add You Let Me In by Camilla Bruce to your TBR list.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I read the entire novel in about two days. A quick and easy read, but honestly I didn’t want to put it down.
Don’t let the rating fool you, I disliked every moment I spent reading Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi. This novel forced me to encounter grief and heartbreak I have shoved deep, deep, down and would have preferred to leave it there.
