Well, hasn’t everything been something lately? Whew. Writing: A whole lot of nothing! Ah, that’s not entirely accurate. I’ve written loads if we’re talking about college assignments (#GrandmaGoesToCollege), exasperated tweets about the shredded state of our democracy, or sternly worded letters to our elected officials. But no, I haven’t written here in a few weeks. … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Nov. 21, 2020
I really enjoy a gorgeous October. Maybe in 2021 that’s what we’ll get. This one was snowy, cold, and fairly disastrous for the country I live in. But, we’re here to talk about books, yes? Here’s what I managed to read this month: Our Souls at Night – Kent Haruf There There – Tommy Orange … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up – October 2020

Welcome to my weekly update! Let get at it. Reading: I continue to read/listen to books with creepy themes. (Don’t you just adore an eerie October?) The last few books were The Institute by Stephen King (strange children!), Rust & Stardust by T. Greenwood (fictional retelling of the story that inspired Lolita), and The Mercies … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Oct. 16, 2020
Good day & happy Friday, readers. Wanna know what’s been up in my neck of the woods? Here we go… Reading: I’m currently listening to The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

I’m hoping to read at least one more witch themed book before spooky … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Oct. 09, 2020
It’s October! Time has certainly been wibbly wobbly this year, hasn’t it? It keeps passing, but feels stretched out and compressed all at once. Is this part of the new normal? It’s possible. For now, let’s see what I’ve been up to this week. Cooking: I made this super yummy Bacon Cheeseburger Soup on Wednesday … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Oct. 02, 2020
September is over and with it goes the strange summer of 2020. I’m not one to wish time away, but it’s fine by me that this year is winding down. I don’t know that next year will be magically better. I do know that we have a chance to make a big change soon. That … Continue reading Reading Wrap-Up – September 2020
I Don’t Collect Books Back in the day I surrounded myself with piles of books. There were books on every flat surface, including the floor. There were stacks on shelves, piles on my dresser, and a heap on my nightstand. I mean, that’s what book lovers do, right? One day, when my kids were small, … Continue reading Get to Know Me Monday – No. 4
Happy Saturday from Wisconsin! Here’s what’s up in my neck of the woods… Reading: I’m enjoying Two Old Women by Velma Wallis. I’m only reading it when we’re at the lake so that I can digest it slowly and mindfully. I’ll be on the lookout for more of her work. Listening: My current listen is … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Sept. 26, 2020
Hello, welcome, and happy Friday! It’s time for my weekly wrap-up. Join me, won’t you? Watching: I’ve been digging The Umbrella Academy and the latest season of Call the Midwife on Netflix.
