I truly didn’t intend to pick three books with like, all the same words in them. Happy Happy Family Family! Never mind. I’m not zipping through books quite at the blistering pace I was back in 2020 (hi, Covid), but so far I’ve read ten books this year. Woo hoo! And while I’ll always have […]

2022 in Books!
YES I’m using the same photo as last year because I still really like it and had zero time to get creative. Ha! Don’t hate it. Booooks! These are some of my favorite posts to write and share and post and publish and share and do and write. You book lovers come out in droves, […]
Bev’s Imaginary Book Club: Twenty Years Later, Lessons in Chemistry, and The It Girl
BEWKS! (<–who else in this group wants to flush that down the toilet?) So, my reading pace this year isn’t what it uhhhh, used to be. Listen to this, I had my GoodReads reading challenge goal set at 40 books this year. Ten less than last year, just knowing that the rhythm of (the night?) […]
Bev’s Imaginary Book Club: The Maid, What Alice Forgot, and The Hotel Nantucket
I want to make the (in da) book club joke so badly right but I’ve done it thrice times thrice already and I like what we have going on here. Let’s talk about some books today! Funnily enough I chose two about hotel life, and one about memory. The memory part’s not the funny part, […]
Bev’s Imaginary Book Club: We Were Never Here, Last Summer at the Golden Hotel, and The Language of Flowers
(In da) book cluuuuuuub! Yes I say this every time, JUST LET ME HAVE THIS ONE THING. Alright, two things: Ignore my scratched glasses. It’s my own fault. These books! UGH. Raise your hand if you’ve heard of and/or read these three books. Higher, I can’t see them. Just kidding. Going back through my Goodreads […]
2021 In Books!
We’re back! I’m back! You’re back! Back back back! Let’s talk about book book books! (ha) Fifty. Fifty novels. I made my goal in the NICK of time on December 31st at 11am. (Not pm, you know I’m a snooze parade by 9.) Without a doubt, 2021 was a spectacular year of reads. Some better […]
Bev’s Imaginary Book Club: In Five Years, Early Morning Riser, and Midnight at the Blackbird Café
Books books boooooks! Back with more books. I tend to do these “official” book club posts every season, have you noticed? No? Like, every three months, ya know. Never noticed? Really? Not at all? Huh. Well, today I’ll be blabbing (some in all caps so just prepare thyself) about three favorites from this year. All […]
Bev’s Imaginary Book Club: Beach Read, The Push, and Good Company
Books! And it’s like, prime time reading season. What is it about summer that has people all psychotically shoving paperbacks and e-readers and hardcovers and tablets in their faces? It’s the best. Alright, so these three chosen books are pretty different from each other. One is an easy breezy read, one is D A R […]
Bev’s Imaginary Book Club: Before We Were Yours, The Neighbors, and The Four Winds
Bewks! I mean books! I mean berks! Never mind. Okay, it’s March 11th. I remember one year ago today I was shooting a recipe whilst listening to NPR, and I’ll never forget the feeling of hearing that the WHO (not the band) had just declared Covid a global pandemic. Remember that? It’s been a year. […]
2020 In Books!
We done got readered! (just kidding, mom, I know how to form sentences.) (I think.) FIFTY.FIVE.NOVELS. That’s what we (well, Ashlee and I) read this year. 55! I’m not sure if it was (is?) the combination of being home ALL THE TIME, or needing to escape reality, or the cerebral slack-slash-forgiveness in other life departments, […]
