Talk about late to the game! I still haven’t posted my top books of 2021 yet either but I decided to kick things off with TV and movies. I’m sticking to new-to-me viewings (otherwise you would see Star Wars and Lord of the Rings on every single one of my

I can’t believe it took me until April to put together my best of 2021 book list, but here we are.  Better late than never, right?  In no surprise, the bulk of my list consists of fantasy books though I do have a couple of romance, thriller and non-fiction picks

The Bright Side Vol 8

What. A. Week.  It’s been a roller coaster ride of emotion! Andrew and I found a house that we love (I fell really hard for it!) and after putting in an offer, we got accepted!  Two days later we had the inspection and found out that there were so many
