I don’t do tags very often but I came across this one from Bookwormmuse and I had to participate because Tolkien, no other reason is needed. HOW DID YOUR MIDDLE EARTH JOURNEY BEGIN? My wonderful step-mom actually started reading The Hobbit to my sister and I when we were little. I remember loving the story then,

I believe that I have discussed the it before on this blog but I love Recycled Books in Denton, Texas. Three stories and a maze of shelves.

Paperback Perils: The Boneless Mercies

Title: The Boneless MerciesAuthor: April Genevieve TucholkePublication Date: 2018Publishing House: Farrar Straus Giroux This book was described to me as a gender-flipped version of Beowulf.

The Outsiders

Title: The OutsidersAuthor: S.E. HintonPublication Date: 1967Publishing House: Speak I don’t know about other readers out there but sometimes I just feel like reading books that I’ve read before; I feel like meeting those old friends between the pages.
