Interesting Tidbits on the Web:

The Atlas of Beauty - this is a stunning collection of portraits of women from around the world and some really interesting interviews with them.



This was definitely a make up week for me, lots of work, lots of chores, catching up on pen pal letters and then squeezing in some reading time.  I did end up spending a little extra time over the weekend relaxing to make up for the loss last weekend.  I am hoping to get a lot more reading done this next week though, it is going to get very crazy very soon here! I am also trying out a couple new posting ideas, I have been really obsessed with BookTube lately and have gotten some great ideas for discussion posts on there and I hope to get a little more conversational here rather than just posting review after review.  With that said I have some very interesting reviews posted for this week, I hope you will check them out!


  1. I hear you. I feel like all I post are reviews. I'm in such a blogging slump and so busy that it's hard to even think about writing discussion posts. I hope you write yours. Maybe it'll get me thinking of my own ideas.

    1. It is hard to come up with discussion posts, it always seems like someone else has done it and done it better. But then we all do have our own opinions so it is good to share them.
