Happy New Year!

2023 is here so let’s make it a great one!

Happy New Year and may you have a fabulous new year of books!

This is 2020!

Wow, can you believe that we are now in 2020!??!?! This is crazy as we are entering a new decade!  It is also a big year for me, as I turn 40 at the end of April. I am not even sure how this happened…. I can’t wait to see what this year and new decade brings, hopefully mostly good!  Let’s see what we can accomplish that is ‘bookish’ this year!



2019 has been a great year filled with great things! Considering I almost didn’t finish my reading challenge and I freaked out, I read a lot of really good books, and some really bad ones this year. I’m kinda surprised at the extremes, but I also enjoyed them. My nerdy self has continued to grow and appreciate the fun things about life and I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store! Thanks to all you awesome followers; it wouldn’t be nearly as fun if we didn’t have y’all! Here’s to a new year filled with more books and nerdiness!



What are you looking forward to in 2020?  What suggestions do you have for us?



Happy New Year!

Welcome 2017! This posted right when the new year rang in for us here in Georgia.

I hope this year will be better than last year for everyone.  To get this year started I will be reading these two books:

I will continue to read Stop the World by Sherry Mayes.  I started it last year and was not able to finish it before the new year.  Having to work just interferes with my reading time! Does that happen with anyone else?

Book Description from Amazon:

Inspired by a true story:


Jody Angel Taylor believes her life is all mapped out: Glamorous, clever and popular, and due to marry her handsome boyfriend, she has it all. Until one night she has a devastating car crash, ending up paralyzed — and her perfect world collapses.

Committing media suicide and publicly blamed for her own accident, everything around her falls apart. She becomes a lonely recluse, feeling she’s lost everything including her legs — her boyfriend to her best friend, her father to an affair, her mother to depression — but above all she fears losing her mind. What she doesn’t know is that someone across the globe is about to throw her a lifeline. Can she find the courage to take it? Determined to love again and clear her name, she embarks on a new adventure that will transform her life beyond all expectations.

If you like ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green and ‘All the Bright Places’ by Jennifer Niven then you’ll love Sherry Mayes’ inspiring novel.


If I was Your Girl by Meredith Russo.  I will be listening to this one on audio book.

Description from Amazon: 

A big-hearted, groundbreaking novel about being seen for who you really are, and a love story you can’t help but root for

Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school. Like anyone else, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret, and she’s determined not to get too close to anyone.

But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself, including her past. But Amanda’s terrified that once she tells him the truth, he won’t be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? It’s that at her old school, she used to be Andrew. Will the truth cost Amanda her new life, and her new love?
