Book Expo Recap

I'm back from an exciting few days in New York City for the annual Book Expo America (BEA) convention.

There are so many new exciting titles for Fall that I want to share with you and I'm sure I'll be going into detail about each of them sooner to their release dates. READ MORE

Our supermarkets are already flooding with ripe strawberries from Florida, but I just can't wait to be outside in the sun, picking my own! I grew up with a very tempting strawberry patch in my family's garden and was often caught red handed (and red faced!) covered in strawberry juices after eating my fill. Nothing beats a sunwarm freshly picked berry, in my opinion. READ MORE
