• Box Reveal

    August Sipsby Box Reveal!

    Another month has come and gone and with it a new Sipsby box has arrived on my doorstep. Now I know that I am tragically behind in tasting/pairing these teas off, but I can’t help but be overjoyed at adding even more teas to my collection. Though this month will tragically only add 3 versus the standard 4 due to a recall that the great people at Sipsby were kind enough to inform me of. Despite that I will however still list the entirety of the box for fun.

    Tricks To Running A Successful Book Club

    For any bibliophile the idea of being in a book club is nothing short of magical. Truly, you get to gather around with like minded souls and discuss books that you’ve read. For someone who seems to read a lot, but never can find someone to talk about the book, this is the perfect solution. Though there are things that can and can’t make such a group work.

    The first book club I was involved in I was merely a participant. It was a group of upwards of fifteen women two of which I was close friends with. This group lasted I think close to a year before it completely disbanded. It was sad, but inevitable. You see, we had rules, but non were enforced. With no clear sign of leadership many didn’t read the books in time for the meetings and those that did were usually left feeling disheartened by not getting the full discussion they had hoped for. Still I stayed until the bitter end because I wanted it to work.

  • Book Review

    Access Restricted (Word$ #2) by Gregory Scott Katsoulis

    Obligatory shout out to Gregory Scott Katsoulis, Harlequin Teen, and Net Galley for giving me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I’m excited to be writing my first book review for a book I received through Net Galley. I am doubly excited that it happened to be the second book in a series that I have been semi sorta waiting for. It’s the small moments like these folks.

    Access Restricted is the second book in Katsoulis’ Word$ series. I read the first, All Rights Reserved, last year for my book club. It was my selection as I had read the synopsis and was instantly intrigued by the story. This was back when I was only posting reviews on Goodreads so if you’re curious how my first experience in this series went you can check out that review HERE.
