Waiting on Wednesday: Kill the Farm Boy

Originally hosted by Breaking the Spine, Waiting on Wednesday has now linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings and it's exactly as it sounds: we post about books that haven't been published yet, but we're salivating by the time the publication date hits.

Doubts and Fears In-Between My Ears

I'm dealing with impostor syndrome really heavy this week, friends (I think). I don't like it. I'm not really sure where it's coming from.

Dreaming Amongst Reality

I've always called myself a dreamer. That's what I've always felt, and believed myself, to be. Yet I've hit a couple of occurrences lately where I've found that to be less true and that I am, in fact, can be more of a realist. Example time.

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: 5.23.18

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. It's sorta like a weekly reading reflection, where each Wednesday, you answer the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading?
