Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19

First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

Looks super cute! (Kinda reminds me of the scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone when the trio face the troll in the bathroom). The artwork is definitely adorable and I can see MG readers loving it!


Smiles!

(re: books that caught my attention this week--I picked up Clean by Amy Reed. It's about teens in a detox/rehab center and looks like a really gripping story. Can't wait to start reading it!)
