Audiobook Review – Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Like yesterday, I have some time to throw in a book review that isn’t an ARC because… I’m reading my ARCs too slowly. I know! I know I’m behind! I’m sorry! I’m working on it! And by that, I mean I’ll be traveling for work for the next 5-ish weeks, so I should have plenty of time to read.*

*I sometimes get behind on actual blogging while I’m traveling, so here’s your warning. I might miss some days. But I’ll do my best!

Today, I’m chatting about an audiobook I listened to a few months back, when I was going on a lot of dog walks and long runs. Yes Please by Amy Poehler filled the hole in my heart that Parks and Rec has left, but at the same time, it left me wanting more of some things, things that maybe she doesn’t feel like people need. I understand that, but I wanted it. You know? I’ll get into it. Here we go.Read More »

Book Review – Stealing Home by Jennifer Seasons

I had intended to write another anticipated ARC review today, but Day Job has had me putting in a lot of extra hours this week, and I haven’t had time to finish a book since the weekend! 😦 Ah well, life happens that way sometimes. So I’m jumping back to a book I read while at a book festival several weeks ago – Stealing Home by Jennifer Seasons. Why did I choose this book? It’s pretty simple – BASEBALL. CATCHER. AS. LOVE. INTEREST. Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve got a thing for baseball lovers/players/catchers. Basically, if you can talk baseball to me, I’m there. Which I found to be… part of why I didn’t love this book. But I’ll get into that.Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday – Creepy Settings

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over atΒ Thoughts on TomesΒ on YouTube. You can visit theΒ Goodreads groupΒ for topics (and such, as Sam always says). I interpreted this topic a little differently than I’m sure a lot of people will, because I don’t read horror. It freaks me out too much, and reading is supposed to be fun. So! This topic has become sort of my own thing – creepy settings in books that aren’t creepy on their own. Anyway, you’ll see!Read More »
