What Is Happening?!

It’s just about that time but since I totally missed doing a wrap up for last month and I’ve only done three posts for September I decided to do this ‘wrap-up’ business a little earlier than normal. I think it’s fair to say that this hasn’t been the most productive of months for me in terms of my blog. In fact it’s been the worst month by blog numbers than all the other months before it. So why is that? I know that I’ve talked about why I haven’t been around much but I think that it goes a little deeper than that.

So today I’m going to ramble a little bit about how I’m feeling and where to go from here?

I Read to My Kids, So Should You! – My Ity Opinion

I have always had a love of reading, I don’t know where they came from but I knew after I had my first child that I would want to read to them. Reading is such an important part of learning for a child but I never really saw it as that. It was always just a way to have a bonding moment with them. To share something that they would enjoy.

Today’s post is about why I chose to read to my kids, why it seems that the schools have to practically beg parents to read to their kids and why I think you should just…do it. So let’s dive in!

So here is the start of Jordan’s post…


Are you avid reader or book worm?

Do you find yourself giving a detailed recount of the book you are reading to friends or family, only to be met with a blank expression?

Do you stalk the web looking for fans of your latest book obsession?

Do you like to keep a record of the books you read, but need to include more notes because you just read so, many, books?

Then you, my friend, need to start a book blog.

Blog Update

August has kicked my ass. Let’s be real. Not necessarily in a bad way of course just in a way that’s pulled me from the blog.

I know the end of the month is just about here and I will do a Wrap Up post like always but this is going to be focused more on the future.

A Knife in the Fog by Bradley Harper – Book Tour

I’m so excited to be a part of this book tour! I just want to say thank you to Paste Creative for bringing me on and organizing this tour. When I was told the plot for the book I knew that I was going to enjoy it. I love Jack the Ripper tales. It is so interesting to me the time period but also how horrific these crimes were and that he was never found. Whether he died or just stopped, whether he went to another country or sated his thirst for killing. No one really knows.

So of course I jumped at the change to take part in this tour. I was not disappointed and I can’t wait to share with all of you my thoughts on this book.
