Book List

This post originally appeared on Book Riot.  This month’s total solar eclipse, which will pass over the United States on Monday, Aug. 21, has gotten me all excited about space and astrophysics once again. In order to help all of us get a little historic and scientific background for this event, I’ve put together four [...]

This is the end! I officially wrapped up 100 Days of Books on Instagram on July 12, a feat that was (and still is) incredibly satisfying. When I the project back in April, I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d make it all the way through. I don’t have a great track record completing things like this, [...]

The thing I remember most from this little stretch of books is the feeling that I was SO CLOSE to being finished with this project. I wasn't traveling, so a lot of these photos are just from places around my house that I hadn't used for backgrounds up to this point. Pretty early in the [...]

I'm really excited and a little bummed to say that 100 Days of Books officially wrapped up on Instagram last Wednesday, July 12. I'm excited because I never really thought I'd be able to see it all the way through, and bummed because I'm a little sad that it's over. But, I've still got the [...]

More Instagram reviews! In real life, I'm one week away from finishing up this project in real time -- the official last day of the 100 Day Project is Wednesday, July 12. I'm enjoying it a lot, but I'm also ready to see it finish up and decide what I'm going to be doing next. [...]

I'm little behind on sharing the photos and reviews from my 100 Days of Books Instagram project on the blog. Today's post includes entries 31 through 40, but in real time I'm past book 80 -- that seems amazing to me! I'm hoping to get caught up in the next few weeks so I can [...]

Last week, I shared a pretty epic-length posted that featured the nonfiction that caught my eye at BookExpo 2017 in New York. This week, I wanted to highlight some of the fiction that I got excited about at the conference. As you might expect, the pile of fiction I brought home is lot smaller than my pile [...]

Life moves fast, doesn't it? I feel like I just got home from BookExpo 2017 in New York City, but looking at my calendar I can see that it was almost two weeks ago -- I guess that's what traveling will do to you! BookExpo, for those who aren't familiar, is an annual conference for [...]
