Book Haul: May 2020



Welcome to Stacking the Shelves and Mailbox Monday, where I get to show off the books I’ve gotten recently. I haven’t done a haul since March. So . . . oops. Here’s what I’ve added to my shelves in the past two+ months. As you can see, I’ve been acquiring a lot of fantasy / horror / speculative fiction because I’d really like to escape from the world right now.

Discussion: What To Read For Mental Health Awareness Month


May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the US. This is appropriate because everyone in the world is currently living through a stressful situation. When you’re living in isolation, it’s super important to pay attention to your mental health and get help if you need it. One in five people will develop a mental illness at some point in their life, so you’re definitely not alone.

If you want to learn more about what it’s like to live with a mental illness, I have book recommendations for you! I’ve had depression for most of my life. These ten books made me go, “Wow, this author really gets it.”

Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons To Read Historical Fiction


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today, we’re talking about why readers love historical fiction. History has always been one of my favorite topics. Even as a young reader, I was drawn to historical books. (Though I preferred historical nonfiction as a kid. I read everything about Arctic exploration.)

I’ve noticed that there are a lot of historical fiction fans on Twitter, so I asked them to chime in on this post. Here’s a list of reasons why I (and Twitter) think you should give historical fiction a try.
