Apologies for the interruption of regularly scheduled programming, but I have to tell you that Murder at an Irish Christmas, the newest Irish Village Mystery, is out now!

October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)

This is probably not comprehensive, or even probably accurate. This month is going to be very hectic for me from some changes in my personal life (more to come, all good things), but man do I want to read everything, particularly fun spooky stuff. October is the month before my birthday, and I live for … Continue reading October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)

It is incredibly important that books are freely accessible despite how … Continue reading Banned Books Week

It took all … Continue reading Book-crastination

Down the TBR Hole #2

I recently discovered this meme, Down the TBR hole, from Confessions of a YA Reader, which is created by Lost in a Story (now Sunflowers and Wonder). Down the TBR Hole revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there. Most … Continue reading Down the TBR Hole #2
