I think it’s fun to see the whole collection of books that I’ve read for the year in one visual place. Goodreads does a great job of offering this list, although I do think it would be fun if they broke it down so that I could see how many mysteries, historical fiction works, fiction… Read More Reading Roundup & My Top Five of 2020!
After sharing my ‘Middle of the Road‘ and least favorite reads last time, I’m now ready to dig into the great finds. It’s so much fun to find books that you love and want others to enjoy as well. So here is my top 10 list for the last few months. Drum roll please… Romi’s… Read More Top 10 Recent Reads: Romi’s Reading Round Up Part 2
Has it really been three months since I last wrote a book review? I’m not sure where the time has gone, but it certainly hasn’t been spent traveling, shopping or getting out the house. I’ve been flying through books – some of which I definitely put down. Perhaps it’s harder to concentrate during COVID-19, or… Read More August – November Reading Round Up Part I
I just finished a book called In Five Years by Rebecca Serle. At the virtual library where I belong, they have a tab for books that are currently available to check out. I’d never heard of this book, but it was available and sounded interesting. I love when I strike gold. The book was well-written… Read More Looking Back & Looking Forward
In this episode of What Are You Reading? I will cover fluffy books for those (like me) who have had trouble concentrating during these crazy times. And I’ll throw in a few heavy reads for those who are still able to concentrate. I’ve decided to only cover books that I’ve really enjoyed in the last… Read More June & July Reading Round-Up
I’ve never read anything from Emuna Alon until this week. I’ve actually read very little by Israeli writers. But I was lucky enough to have a neighbor with a copy of Emuna Alon’s latest book House on Endless Waters. Knowing I’m a big reader, he asked if I wanted to borrow it, and reassured me… Read More Pouring the Colors Generously
Last week on my blog, I listed all of my reads for 2019. My dad looked over the list and said, “But what were your top 5 favorite?” Oh dad, don’t you know that I have absolutely no memory, and that as soon as I finish a book, it’s gone? But, alas, always up to… Read More My 5 Best Reads of 2019
As 2019 ends, and we head into 2020, I want to wish everyone a healthy, happy and meaningful year ahead. As I find reading incredibly meaningful, I always love to share my end-of-the-year list of books. According to Goodreads, I read 117 books this year, many of which I loved. I hope you will enjoy… Read More My Reading Review for 2019
The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is such a beautiful look at a little-known piece of history. Perhaps you know about this, but I had never heard about the Kentucky Fugates or The Pack Horse Library Project. And they are both important pieces of American history. The Fugates were blue-skinned people who had an extremely… Read More A Blue Woman Delivering Books?
I’ve become impatient as I’ve aged. Or maybe more discerning. Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between the two. Ironically, as the kids have grown and I’ve found myself with more time for reading, I’ve become less patient with the books I read and less willing to just stick it out. Because really, if I can’t… Read More The Power in Putting Down Books
