Six Books People Associate with Me


1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, J. K. Rowling
This series and I have been tight before the movies came out.

2. Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell
America! I have a heart-shaped American flag tattoo on my shoulder, actually, probably anything American flag you can think of.

3. An Anonymous Girl, Greer Hendrick and Sarah Pekkanen
I feel like I was one of the first people on Goodreads that I follow to find this gem.

4. A Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin
I was into this before the TV show came out and introduced it to a ton of people.

5. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis
Not to brag or anything, but I may have a handwritten letter from William Moseley (the guy who plays Peter) from middle school.

6. The Hobbit, J. R. R. Tolkien
This may be the most read book for me besides Pride & Prejudice.

All I Want for Christmas Is…


1. CATAN TRAVELER
I have been playing the game forever and this is perfect for traveling and easily put together.

2. MUCK BOOTS
My boyfriend has his own farming business and my parents have a hobby farm, so it is about time I get some of my own!

3. CARHARTT BIBS
My boyfriend bought me a Carhartt jacket to use while helping him on the farm, so of course I have to have matching overalls.

4. JOANN GIFTCARD
As many of you have probably saw, I have been getting my craft on! I should invest in stock in this place.

5. TIME SPENT WITH FAMILY
It never feels like the holidays without spending time with those we love. Hopefully I get to see some of my friends from out of town, as well!

6. CLEAN HOUSE
I know that sounds dumb, but with the holidays being so busy, it just seems like my house gets wrecked immediately after I clean it!

Six for Sunday – December 15, 2019

#SixforSunday is a weekly meme hosted by Steph @ A Little But a Lot. These are some reads that have either cold settings, a creepy atmosphere, or need a little more heat.

Fireside Reads


1. SHIVER
Shiver is a love story intertwined with pain, suffering, and finding meaning to life when nothing was really as it seemed.

2. TEARS OF FROST
Barton is an author unlike anyone else. Tackling touchy issues in the way she knows best: writing, Barton takes readers on a journey of unlikely friendships struggling with alcoholism, sexual assault, depression, and suicidal ideation until finally, finding themselves.

3. A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY
This novel was a retelling of Beauty & the Beast. A new girl comes around every season in the hopes of breaking the curse, but history keeps repeating when none of the girls seem to be the perfect fit. And each time, the beast is different.

4. THE LIGHT BETWEEN WORLDS
While the premise is three siblings find an entrance to a fairytale land called the Woodlands, there is so much more depth to this re-telling we don’t necessarily get to experience in the original masterpiece.

5. HOUSE OF SALT AND SORROWS
Craig introduces readers to a place where ghosts roam freely, death could be the next step you take, and nothing is truly as it appears. The author does a great job of creating the creepy murder mystery atmosphere, but adds a touch of paranormal into the picture.

6. THE WEIGHT OF A SOUL
The Weight of a Soul is a story of sisterly love, the heart-wrenching selflessness of a sister, and perseverance all in exchange for the equal “weight of a soul”

Books I Want To Give as Gifts


1. THE MERCIFUL CROW
Fie was such a strong, patient, female lead. Her selflessness is her weakness and I love that characteristic about her. It is so real. The decisions she faced were realistically dealt with, the relationships were warm, and the mistrust of new people was warranted. The Merciful Crow is a unicorn: beautifully crafted, vulnerable, and realistic. Definitely a top read of 2019!

2. FIREBORNE
What makes this story different from other dragon novels is that the reader can feel the emotions of the dragons. The bond between dragon and rider is so intense, it almost serves as a link to the souls. I want a dragon. Munda brings us a captivating story of political unrest, revolution, and the chance to create history. I’m excited for the next installment!

3. THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK
In a story of deceit, death, peace, and most importantly, family, The Girl the Sea Gave Back doesn’t disappoint! This novel left me wanting more and I can see so many more spin-offs that Young can grace us with (please, pretty please!).

4. SPIN THE DAWN
This is not what I expected, but it definitely didn’t disappoint! Maia is the epitome of a strong, female character. Just like in Mulan, with no eligible male heir able to assist the emperor, Maia takes it upon herself to represent her family and restore honor to their name. In a time where women hold no power, she takes it upon herself to swallow her pride, dress like her brother, and hide her true identity from everyone else.

5. TO BEST THE BOYS
Welcome to a world where The Maze Runner, Hunger Games, and Divergent are a reality. In order to get a chance to apply to an infamous college, children of a certain age are given the opportunity to compete for a chance in Holm’s maze. But this isn’t your typical maze…beasts and ghouls are around every corner, it is an exercise both physically and mentally, and death is an imminent threat. In a story of women empowerment, justice, and the desire for equality, we find ourselves encountering two women want entirely different things, but on the same journey to happiness.

6. THE GIRL KING
The action is non-stop and intense. I was engulfed in the novel the entire time I was reading it and actually wanted to read more than the allotted Buddy Read chapters per day. I’m excited for the sequel!
