A Review: “Things You Save in a Fire” by Katherine Center

I've been on a Katherine Center kick lately with this being the third book I've read by her in the last two and a half months. Center's writing is so easy and enjoyable to me. I guess that's why her novels are considered "comfort reads."

A Review: “What You Wish For” by Katherine Center

Happy New Year! We're less than a week in, and 2022 has not been kind. My husband and I spent the last week sick with COVID-19, but thankfully, we have recovered. I'm stuck in quarantine for the next seven days, but on the bright side, I've been able to catch up on some reading.

6 Endearing Young Adult Books I Still Enjoy

https://open.spotify.com/episode/3ff04NnDbSkPukpeziZkrB?si=VfCCln67RjC4YZJS_n9r6Q Despite being in my 30s, I am a big reader of young adult fiction.

But, of course, as we get older,… Continue reading 6 Endearing Young Adult Books I Still Enjoy

Disney World and The Dating Plan

Towards the end of February, we had the opportunity to go to Disney World! The last time I've been to Disney was when I was 10 or 11, so I was very excited to take a trip.
