My 2015 Armchair Audies Predictions

Every year I’ve hosted the Armchair Auides I’ve coveted the other judges who were able to take on more than one Audies category. They are my audiobook blogging superheros. I am proud to say that I’ve officially joined their ranks. Not only did I review the Literary Fiction category this year, I also reviewed the […]

You Can Watch the Audies!

It’s just a little over a week until the 2015 Audie Awards. Every day I wake up and can’t believe I’ll actually be there. My husband is staying home with my girls, so my best friend from Michigan will be attending the awards with me. I’m glad Trista will be there, but this year my […]

How I Tricked My Daughter Into Reading The Graveyard Book

My youngest daughter isn’t a reluctant reader, but she’s no where near a voracious reader either. She loves graphic novels and has read Drama, Smiles, Sisters, and El Deafo each a dozen times. Getting her to read anything else is a struggle. If I suggest it/buy it/encourage her to read it, the likelihood that it […]

Monday Mini ~ A Long Time Gone by Karen White ~ Audiobook Review

Getting back into the swing of things each week is hard. So is finding the quiet time to write a review over the weekend. In order to ease out of the weekend, I’ve decided to begin my blogging week with a mini review. From the moment I first looked over the list of Audie Award […]

2015 Audiobook Blogger of the Year!

I received the most incredible email yesterday. The subject line read: “You are the Audiobook Blogger of the Year!” I was talking to my dad when it popped into my inbox. He must have thought I’d gone into some kind of fit when he heard my excited/strangled response. Luckily I regained my words and told him the […]

My Emeraldette Weekend

It may have rained on our parade, but Emma was a beautiful Miss Emeraldette. She enjoyed her day completely. I’m so glad that I asked the daughter of a friend to take pictures for us. Here are a few I’d like to share. Emma just glowed from the moment she woke up Saturday morning and […]

Audiobook Life ~ When to Pull the Plug

When I began book blogging, I always finished reading what I started. This semi-regularly introduced pain and boredom into my reading life. I started reading posts and tweets from other readers about not finishing books. Some were like me and soldiered through no matter what the cost. Others had systems for determining for themselves when […]

Busy April

April has been a busy month for this blogger. I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d have liked to as a result. A couple of weeks ago we cleaned out closets and bedrooms before heading to Richmond for a few days to celebrate Spring Break. We had a great time shopping at […]
