Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2020

Wow, it has been a hot minute since I was last here! I’m sorry for disappearing for so long. Grad school has been way more consuming than I thought. It hasn’t affected my reading, surprisingly, but the thought of sitting down to craft blog posts was just a little too much for my already stressed and anxious self. I am winding down on the end of my second course, and I am finally feeling like I can come up for air a little bit. I’ll talk more about what’s been going on in our world later in the post, but I just wanted to say up top: I’ve missed all of you! I’ve been so busy! I hope not to go this long without blogging again! Continue reading “Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2020”

But that’s not Luke’s only secret. He also has a major un-requited crush on music blogger, Vada Carsewell. Continue reading “Book Review: More Than Maybe”

Books That Deserve More Attention

books on wooden deck tabletopI noticed today that there are a ton of people posting about books that they don’t talk about enough because of the Top Ten Tuesday meme. Funny enough, I actually have been planning to write this post for months and kept putting it off. So, I thought, “why not today?!” Here is my list of books that I don’t talk about enough and that I think deserve more attention! Continue reading “Books That Deserve More Attention”
