Name five books that you didn’t get to in 2022 but want to make a priority in 2023. Elatsoe by Darcie Little Badger This was her debut novel which went on to win awards. I think every book she has written won awards. She is a member of the Lipan Tribe. The book is about a girl names Elatsoe. She can raise animals from the dead. When her cousin is murdered, she investigates, uncovering secrets hidden by her picture perfect village. Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal I read The Calculating Stars (book 1 in the series) when these first came out. I loved it so much I bought Fated Sky to read right away. Well... Life happened and I didn't get around to it yet. But this will be the year!
Book Review: The Invisible Library
The Invisible Library does not have a fancy cover but it is simple and elegant and I am a sucker for any book that has the word "library" in it. So I had to pick it up! And I'm so glad I did! This is not a YA book but I loved it none-the-less. Book Review: Irene is a junior librarian for THE Library. This library exists on its own, outside all the countless alternate worlds. Irene travels to different alternates on assignment to collect certain unique copies of books..occasionally, by any means necessary. Sometimes this is an easy task, sometimes not. For this mission, she must go into an alternate that is infested by Chaos. To make matters more complicated she has been assigned an apprentice that is keeping something from her.
Quill and Books Reading Challenge- October
How is the challenge going? Have you started? Have you discovered a new book that you love? I hope so! Time for something scary and intense!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Book Review
This book has been on my to-read list for...well since the book came out. Somehow I never made time for it, until it showed up as a choice on the reading list for my Youth Literature class. Now, it was homework... the best kind of homework ever! I am loving this class which forces me to make time to read some awesome books!
Happy Birthday! Quill & Books is TWO years old now! What a ride this is! I have neglected the blog a bit because I'm working as a teacher and working on my MLIS to be a school librarian in addition to being a mom and wife. Let's just say this has been a hectic year. … Continue reading Blogiversary 2018
Quill and Books Reading Challenge- September
It's September! Reading can help bring understanding. Many people don't understand what it is like to have a disability. Reading a non-fiction book about a disability can help you understand the facts of it. Reading a book written BY someone with a disability can help you see their world in a new light. I've read … Continue reading Quill and Books Reading Challenge- September
Quill and Books Reading Challenge- August
am starting a reading challenge. This is meant for Instagram but you can post yours on any platform you wish. My Instagram handle is @fletchers.quill if you want to tag me. This challenge is not too hard if you read an average of one book a month. Each month, I'll steer you in a direction, maybe in a direction you've never been before.
So, here is the first month's challenge:
Even though I haven't reviewed a book lately, I've still been reading. I was updating my Goodreads setting and found this little widget that shows what I've been reading lately. So I thought I'd share it with you. What have you been reading lately? I hope to review some of these in after … Continue reading Good Reads
Secrets to Finding Time to Read in a Crazy Busy World
I would love to have a day to do nothing but sit and read and maybe drink a cup of hot tea. The reality is that it is not likely to happen for years to come. I have a six-year-old adorable little boy at home that demands my attention every few hours…or every 3 minutes. … Continue reading Secrets to Finding Time to Read in a Crazy Busy World
Writers of the Future Volume 33
Now that my first novel manuscript rough draft is done, you might think I'd start on revisions. Not quite. Often writers need time and distance from a rough draft to do a good revision. I recently began grad school so I will likely set it aside for 2 years while I work on my MLIS. … Continue reading Writers of the Future Volume 33
