Real Love in an Angry World by Rick Bezet {Review}

"Acknowledging the value of a soul plants in us a seed of willingness to build others up, encourage others, and call the greatness out of them.

I’d Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel {Review}

I'd Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel I just want to use this book as artwork. Honestly. The cover plus the title basically is about equal to my tendencies of escaping from or trying to figure out how to deal with my life through reading. The tiny hardcover design makes for a fun purse book … Continue reading I’d Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel {Review}

It is a way to keep a … Continue reading Recently Read {Quick Lit}

A ONE Way to Quick Lit

First things first. I've wanted to participate Modern Mrs Darcy's Quick Lit link-up more often, but I had it in my head that I had to write about the books I'd read from May 15th-June 15th. And the idea of splitting the month of reading right in the middle just made my mind too tired … Continue reading A ONE Way to Quick Lit
