March Booklinks

Every book has something in common with every other book, or does it? When I recap my reading for the month, I try to find connections between what I’ve read so I challenge myself to find a link to the book I read before and the book I’ll read next. Below are the 11 books…

How To Read 3 Books In A Day

On Sunday, I planned to read 3 books. I asked my subscribers on YouTube to look through my TBR stack and pick 3 books for me to read in a day. If we’re saying a day is a 24 hour period, then I succeeded. I got a late start on Sunday but once I started…

Unclaimed Packages for Christmas

How are you preparing for Christmas? I bet whatever you’re doing, you’re surrounded with packages, some that you tear into eagerly because the box contains something you’ve been waiting on, other times the carton gets pushed into the corner just waiting, maybe because you don’t think it’s time to open it yet, sometimes you just…

Mortified

Amid the disenchantment surrounding Castro’s early 1980s regime and her husband’s failed attempts at organizing a revolution of his own, Soledad takes her two children, Ulises and Isabel, and flees, not to a pseudo-Cuban community of refugees in Miami but onward to Hartford, Connecticut.
