Women hold up half the sky. -Chinese Proverb For the month of July I’ve been reading Half the Sky by Pulitzer Prize winning authors Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. Over the course the last several weeks my husband has asked a few times what I am reading. And I find that question hard to answer.
I don’t actually know how to begin this post, it’s supposed to be a book review of the new book wild & free by Jess Connolly & Hayley Morgan.
In case you haven’t met me, I am a total history nerd. Contemplated a major in World History in college (vs Interior Design), but I’m not the teaching type…I thoroughly enjoyed Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City last year and it reignited a love of history, architecture and for a good creepy murder mystery… In … More Just Finished Reading: Dead Wake

I don’t want to hear how somewhere in my life I have made a wrong decision and need to come back to the … More Make It Happen by Lara Casey- Review

I am not going to lie, almost bought it twice…but as a Book Look Blogger I decided to wait and see if it would come back as a possible book to review through them. And it did. *happy dance* It was only available as a … More The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith- Book Review
