All Souls Trilogy

A Three-in-One Book Review I recently finished the three books of the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. Much like when I read the Hunger Games trilogy, I finished these three in a week and a half. I couldn't keep my hands off of them but I also don't think I could do three separate reviews so [...]

The Vampire Lestat

The Vampire Obsession Is Real And I don’t think I’ll really ever move past the vampire obsession, Belles & Beaux. It’s been around since I first watched Blade. But today we’re taking a trip back in time to the time of Anne Rice and her vampires of New Orleans and ages old. I got into [...]

The Testaments

Blessed Be the Fruit Happy Friday, Belles & Beaux! Welcome back to my library. I haven't been this excited for a book since last year when Limetown, A Novel came out. I thoroughly enjoyed that one after becoming addicted to the podcast. I've already reviewed both and you can find those on the blog here, here, and [...]

Practical Magic

No. Not the Movie. Happy Friday, Belles & Beaux! I quite enjoy doing these on Friday for some reason, so I figured I’d cover another recent read of mine, Practical Magic. For some of you who might know of the “romcom” movie on Netflix and Hulu - and it’s not a romcom if you’ve seen [...]

Rhett Butler’s People

I Still Love That Man! Hey, Belles & Beaux, I finally finished one of the most outstanding reads on my currently reading list. So with me finally finishing this one, I love my darling Rhett Butler all the more. If you have read the authorized sequel to Gone with the Wind entitled Scarlett then you [...]

Gold Dust Woman

Rock On Gold Dust Woman Happy Thursday, Belles & Beaux! I finally finished Stevie Nicks' biography and I cannot say enough words about this book. I have always loved Stevie because of her music and how she so artfully tells a story with her words. There are a few flaws in the books such as dates [...]

Beauty by Lauren Conrad

Worth The Time? Happy Tuesday, Belles & Beaux! I recently - and finally - finished reading Lauren Conrad's Beauty after having started it nearly two-ish years ago when I found it at McKay's here in Nashville. I hate that it's taken me this long to do so, but in a way I find it oddly satisfying to [...]

A Clash Of Kings

A Song of Ice & Fire: Book Two Well, Belles & Beaus, I finally finished the second book of the series that the show Game of Thrones is based off of and we're going to dive on in for the book review and comparison to season two of the HBO hit show. Warning: spoilers will follow the block [...]

The Handmaid’s Tale

I Finally Finished It! Hey Belles & Beaux! Yeah, I'm probably not going to hit my 20 books by New Years, but there is always next year! I might bring it down to 15 next year and add more books as I near the goal. But right now the main event is The Handmaid's Tale by [...]

Limetown, A Novel

The Prequel to the #1 Podcast Happy Thursday, Belles & Beaux! For the last two days, I have been deep into the world of Limetown. Yes, that's right. The podcast that left those of us who listened hanging for two years has come back to life with new episodes.... And a prequel novel. Yes, you [...]
