This was a really good way to start off the year! I had a blast reading some really awesome books as well as some great manga series! I also FINALLY finished Cannery Row by John Steinbeck after reading it for two whole months (spoiler: it wasn't worth it!). I also got to go back home … Continue reading Monthly Recap: January!
How many books do you own? 20? 50? 200? I'm talking about physical books too, not e-books or audio books. Books that take up room. Books that are stacked high on you bedside table. Books that live with you and move from place to place. Books that you've had for longer than your relationship. I … Continue reading I’m a Book Hoarder and I’m Ok With That
Welcome back to the Weekly Round-Up! I had a great week of reading although I was out of town for four days. It was nice to get off of the island and visit my friends and family and GO SHOPPING. Yes I did buy books while I was up there, of course I did because … Continue reading Weekly Round-Up #14
Today I thought I would delight you all with some donations that we have received at the library since I've started working there. Some of them are strange and some of them are just really, really outdated (you'll see). I hope you like this weird little post and if you do I can compile more … Continue reading Diverse Donations

Last Friday I got to go to the afternoon session of the Key West Literary Seminar. Now I have never been to a literary seminar or any kind of book related convention (Everything is usually on the main land) so I wasn't really sure what to expect but it was so much fun!! Have you … Continue reading Key West Literary Seminar! (AKA I am a giant fangirl)

I have a new obsession that has just started within last the last year or so: podcasts! I have no idea why it took me so long to get into podcasts but I think since I didn't like audio books that I just assumed that I wouldn't like podcasts either. BUT I DO. My favorites … Continue reading Podcasts!
Today at the library we got some new books! Are there any new books that you are looking forward to reading? I know I'm really looking forward to reading The Bride Test by Helen Hoang but it doesn't come out until May (ughhhh). A lot of the books that we got in today were local … Continue reading New Books & Literary Seminars
