'Round Here #BehindTheBlogger

'Round Here #BehindTheBlogger

‘Round Here reminds me of the Florida Georgia Line song “Round Here”.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand…

‘Round Here

‘Round Here makes me think of where I live: small town USA for sure. I live in the same little town I grew up in. There are no stoplights. We are just a blip on a map. Sometimes, my town isn’t even listed on maps or on a GPS. We can’t order take-out for delivery, since no one delivers out here. Our town consists of a carryout store, a post office, a volunteer fire department, a legion, a bar, and a rod and gun club. They’re also building a dollar store, which is the first thing being built in our town …

When You Love Someone #BehindTheBlogger

When You Love Someone #BehindTheBlogger


Who do you think of when you see this image? When you hear the word love? I immediately think of my boyfriend, Donny. We have been together for 7+ years. Most days, it doesn’t seem that long at all. I believe that sometimes, when you see a person, you just know. You can just tell that they are going to be more for you than other people. You know they are going to have an incredible impact on your life story. I felt that way with Donny right from the beginning.

The world seems like a better place when you love someone. Colors are brighter. You see beauty where you didn’t see it before. You have a feeling of hope. As …

Friday's Bookish Memes – 5/22/15 #Friday56 #LifeAfterPerfect

Friday's Bookish Memes – 5/22/15 #Friday56 #LifeAfterPerfect

This week’s Book Blogger Hop question was submitted by Elizabeth:

Why would you stop reading a book? Too long, wrong genre, bad language, not what you expected, or something totally different?

I stop reading a book for a lot of reasons. One of the main reasons is if I don’t connect with the characters or the plot right away. I want to feel invested in a story early on, or I usually don’t have the motivation to continue. I will also stop reading a book if it doesn’t have good pacing – I don’t like when a story starts to feel like it is dragging on, or there is unnecessary information. I typically give a book about 40-50 …

Two memes is my limit – any more than that and the post starts to feel disconnected. I also don’t want to have to read through several sets …

Book Blogger Hop – 1/16/15

Welcome to this week’s Book Blogger Hop, hosted at Coffee Addicted Writer. To check out this week’s participants, click the button above. This week’s question:

Do you feel comfortable enough approaching a stranger when you see he/she is reading a book to ask what they are reading?

Hmm. I had to really think about this one. Yes, I think for the most part I am comfortable approaching strangers about what they are reading. However, I work at a library, so I spend a good deal of my time talking to people about what they are reading or what I am reading. That definitely helps! 🙂 Now, outside of the library – I will approach someone if I see they are reading …
