The Wounded Warrior’s Wife By Hannah Conway Review and Giveaway

The Wounded Warrior’s Wife I love hearing about Military Spouses that write fiction. As a big reader, it is great to be able to read a fictionalized version about something I have experienced. The Wounded Warrior’s Wife written by fellow Army wife, Hannah Conway is one of those books. Based in Ft. Carson, Colorado, The Wounded Warrior’s Wife is the story of Whit and Collier, an Army couple. They go through a lot of challenges from Korea to a deployment to the effects of that deployment. As an Army wife myself, I could relate to some of this book because I had gone through …

My Daddy is a Soldier Book Review

I love it when Military spouses write books. They can bring reality to the subject they are writing about and have a good point of view on the subject. I was given the chance to review the book, My Daddy is a Soldier. Written and Illustrated by Brittany Mayfield. The book is written from the point of view of a child talking about their father who is a soldier. It talks about what he can do because he is one. The illustrations show a multicultural mix of soldiers which is nice to see. This book is perfect for the Military child. …

5 Reasons Why E-Readers Are Better Than Traditional Books

This post does contain affiliate links.  I bought my first E-reader in 2010 and I fell in love with it. I am one of those people who is always reading a lot of books at once. It is a pain to carry them everywhere so the Kindle made so much sense. Years later I still love my Kindle but have recently tried to read more traditional books as well. I had missed them. I think there are benefits to both and I talked about why traditional books are better than E-readers in my latest post. This post is about why …

This post does contain affiliate links.  In case you are new here, I love books, I love to read and I always have. In 2010 I got my first Kindle and I fell in love with it. I loved that I could have so many books all in one place. Over the years I have upgraded and have been using the Kindle Paperwhite for almost a few years now. I love that thing I really do. I get books from the local library and every once in a while I might buy one if the price is right. That being …

Books To Read If You Loved The Hunger Games

I read the Hunger Games trilogy last year and loved it.  I didn’t realize at the time that it was considered “dystopian fiction.”  Since then I have read 4 other books that could be called  “dystopian fiction.”  I like to call it, “Books that take place in the future, in a world with different rules than our own, where a young person works through something and ends up fighting the government or leadership of that world”  There is usually a love story to go with. The first book I read was Divergent by Veronica Roth.  From Goodreads, “In a future Chicago, …

Books I Read in 2011

I love to read and I love to track what I read. I have been doing that on paper for over 10 years now. I signed up for Goodreads a while ago but been trying to use it more regularly this year. In 2011 I finished just 14 books. I thought it should be more than that. Too much tv, not enough books…;) Anyway, in 2012 I really would like to try to read 50 books but we will see how that goes. I joined a local book club so I know that will be a lot of fun too. …
