Thank you so much for following and encouraging me up […]

Temporarily Without Internet: Not Dead

I’m currently living sans internet, which is a very liberating experience and surprisingly not as stressful as I thought it would be.

Bookish People and the Internet: A Match Made In Heaven

The internet is one of my favourite modern inventions after indoor plumbing and toasters. It seems like the ultimate tool for bookish people – a lot of us are introverted, busy, and don’t actually live anywhere near the authors who write our favourite books. I’m still discovering places online to talk books, but here are […]

One Full Year of Blogging

Given my overwhelming hatred of squooshing two words together to form a new word, I can’t bring myself to use the word ‘Blogiversary’ – so happy Blog-Anniversary to Most Sublime!   The actual date was yesterday but the WordPress notification slipped under my radar until late last night but I did want to do something […]

Review: Escape (Lake of Sins Book #1) by L.S. O’Dea
