• New Picture Books Worth Reading - 2022 Picture Books

    new PICTURE BOOKS worth checking out

    A few years ago I did regular round ups of good picture books and since then I’ve been finding good picture books harder and harder to find. BUT I’ve made it my mission to be a resource for those looking for good picture books for their kids. I read through a large number of picture books published this year and today I have five picture books to share with you! The next time I have five picture books I’ll share…

  • The Best Christian Non-Fiction I've Read in the Last Year

    the best CHRISTIAN NON-FICTION I’ve read in the last year (or two) plus a giveaway!

    Welcome to my book-ish website for those who haven’t made their way here before! I am so excited to use this space to bring you even more book-ish content. I have so many ideas for different posts for this space so be sure to check back often because there will be new blog posts almost every day of the week! Anyway, it’s been awhile since I shared a list of my favorite Christian non-fiction books (like over a year, maybe…

  • A Grade Four Book List - middle grade books for fourth grade

    GRADE 4 BOOK LIST: 9 books I’m making my fourth grader read – mainly mystery and humorous books

    A couple of weeks ago I shared my book list for my seventh grade daughter and now it’s time to share the list for my fourth grade son! Since we just got a new foster child last week I figured I would just share this list on the blog instead of filming a video for it, it makes my life a little easier in the craziness that is the first little while with a new placement. My fourth grader has…

  • Middle Grade Books My Daughter has Enjoyed

    MIDDLE GRADE BOOKS my daughter has enjoyed this summer

    I am excited to start sharing some kids book lists here. I used to do this a lot over on my homeschool site but it just makes sense to have all the book lists in one place. Over time I may end up going back and even bringing in some of the more popular book lists from my homeschool site . . . or I’ll just stick to making new ones, only time will tell! Today I am kicking things…

  • My August TBR

    my AUGUST TBR – the smallest TBR I’ve ever made – just books for challenges and Patreon picks!

    For the first time (ever?!) in my BookTube career I’ve intentionally chose a very small TBR (to be read) pile. I’ve been struggling to finish my July TBR because I just want to mood read and unfortunately a lot of the books on my July TBR are just not what I am in the mood for right now. I fully intend to go back to a large TBR in September but thought I would just take a bit of a…



    I’ve been wanting to share ideas for books for each month’s prompt for the Read Your Bookshelf Challenge and apparently it has taken me until August’s prompt to finally do so! The prompt for August is to read a book with a body part in the title, and going through my shelves made me realize this was harder than I was expecting! I found a few books on my read shelves and a few more on my unread shelves to…
