    Bronte’s Mistress

    One of the most heartbreakingly honest books I have ever read depicting the life of a Victorian woman. I must admit that I had my reservations about reading Bronte’s Mistress because I had heard from my friends that it doesn’t end in neatly wrapped up happily ever after -which is true. While it is an emotionally difficult book to read, it is so beautifully written that I could not put it down. Anyone interest in Victorian-era life needs to grab this book. It gives such a unique perspective into the suffocating life that so many Victorian women were forced to lead. Yorkshire, 1843: Lydia Robinson—mistress of Thorp Green Hall—has lost…

The Memory House Chapter 3, Pages 35-36 Kitty swept into her father’s library and peered around. It was an enormous room, standing upon almost half of the ground floor of the house, yet it always felt crowded with objects.

Nothing gives off that cozy home feeling like lighting a candle. It makes a statement – I’m not going anywhere. It brings back memories -Ah! It smells like the lilacs in the backyard just as it did when I was a child. It creates hygge. One of my biggest passions is to use my voice on social media to help small/local businesses. I love learning about the person/people behind the company. Since I have enjoyed interviewing authors, I thought why not…

    Five Tips For Sharing Books

    I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library -Jane Austen I am a recovering book hoarder. There, I said it. Growing up, we never had many toys but we did have books. My mom would take us to this once a year library sale. We would get up early and drive over to the county library and dig through what seemed like a warehouse full of books. It was magical! We would leave with boxes on top of boxes filled to the brim with enough books to keep us happy for months. Those books were precious guides to adventures waiting to be discovered. As I got older…
