FALLing into a good book (or ten)

If you've been around this blog for a while, you probably already know that fall is the most wonderful time of the year for me.

This Week in Books: My first five-star read of 2017

I never intended for this blog to be solely about books, but reading is pretty much all I've been doing outside of work and mommying. Cold, wet weather and time changes will do that. Then: Have you ever read a book that you liked soooo much you simultaneously wanted to see how it ends but… Continue reading This Week in Books: My first five-star read of 2017
