Q3 update: Alphabet Soup reading challenge:

77 books read so far in 2015. Could 100 really happen? 21 in Q3 and I’m currently in the middle of 3 so very possible. 35 unfinished puts me over so technically I’ve started more than 100 books already. On the A-Z front, I have no idea so let’s see. I was missing the following… Read More »

Q2 update: 2015 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

I fell off on my challenge updating, but as I briefly noted earlier, I’ve read 56 books this year. Together with the 23 I didn’t finish (or saved for later as a friend said), that’s amazing. I’m slightly ahead of my Q1 pace and have the following letters still to go: O Q U X… Read More »

Review: Bleachers

Review: Kid Me Not

Now, listen—if you put a baby in front of me, rest assured: that baby is gonna get cuddled, spoiled and adored. But even as I’m loving on that beautiful infant, I know in my heart: This is not my destiny. It never was KID ME NOT: An anthology by child-free women of the ’60s now… Read More »
