Elliot Brooks is an AWESOME author I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I’ve loved getting to know her through editing her novel and BookTube (all links to find her on the internet below!). I don’t normally share about books I’ve worked on, but I’ve really loved how Elliot has marketed her book, and I think she has a lot of wisdom to share with aspiring authors.Read More
Becoming by Michelle Obama is so worth the hype, y’all. Listening to it on audio felt like I was having coffee with Michelle herself (she narrates!), learning just what her love and her husband’s love for our country cost her. How it changed her. And how she took that love and forged a path with it—a path for women. A path for people of color. Her passion and love made a way for people to dream big.Read More
When God Weeps: Why Our Sufferings Matter to the Almighty by Joni Eareckson Tada and Steven Estes is hands-down the best book on suffering I’ve read.
If you’ve ever wondering what God thinks of pain and suffering—whether our sovereign God cares about what we go through in this life—you should pick up this book.Read More
I’ll try to trace the hold the book has on me, but what can I really say? Reading Station Eleven is like slowly peeling an orange, tearing it bit by bit until you’re at the sticky center. It’s sweet and it lingers, but oh, it stings, that little sun in your hands.
It’s a story about nostalgia: not only for what could have been but for what still exists buried underneath—like fingers on an out-of-tune cello playing a hollow song from muscle memory. Or maybe it’s always there, buzzing above our skin, like light moving over the surface of the waters, over the darkness of the undersea.Read More
I know heaps of stories about Salamanca—a hog's belly full. They reside underneath what we don't see: a bare, plaster wall or a hurting friend; a thin envelope on the front porch; a singing tree; a blackberry kiss. Her stories are like fishing in the air. They're hard to summon . . .Read More
I dreamed about a place where cherry blossoms grew wild, where prayers became poetry and ethereal green fields spilled into the sparkling blue sea. A girl lived there—a dreamy gaze of a soul who had been wandering afar, star-led. She walked, rowed, berried, and dreamed to her heart's content . . .Read More
My love for this book, in many ways, mirrors Leni’s love for Alaska. Wild. That’s how I describe it all. When Kristin Hannah gets her hooks in you, she digs deep and holds on. I can only use Leni’s words to describe how I feel about this book . . .Read More
Oh, I adore this book. Kelly is a masterful storyteller, and I feel this one was brewing in her for a while. Lovers of middle grade—no matter their age—will come away with their own kind of sticky-sweet starlight: more joy, inspiration to forgive and cling to hope, and love multiplied.
This is a story about magic, how lies and sorrow and fear can rule and ruin, but how even the brokenness of the mad can be repaired with strength and hope.Read More
Hi all! I loved The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Review below, but basically, this book was enchanting, mysterious, elegant, and a total page turner. I even had a "Midnight Dinner" with some friends to celebrate the Circus of Dreams. Bookish parties are the best, aren't they?Read More
