More Audiobooks in May: Reading Wrap-Up

Posted June 6, 2023 by Richetta in Monthly Wrap-up

As the Springtime hustle and bustle opens up to hopefully more relaxing days in summer, I relied mostly on audiobooks this month. My May Reading Wrap-Up consisted on seven audiobooks, one ebook and two print books. I also read equal parts fiction and nonfiction. A few of the books I read have been on my […]

Audiobooks in April: Monthly Reading Wrap-up

Posted May 1, 2023 by Richetta in Monthly Wrap-up

Lately, audiobooks have seemed to be the best way for me to read. This month I finished listening to four and I have a few more I’m still working on. I even used one to keep reading when I had to change locations. I tend to stick to non-fiction with audiobooks as a preference. But […]

New Gardening Books for the Creative Spirit

New Gardening Books for the Creative Spirit

Posted April 15, 2023 by Richetta in Book Reviews, Gardening, Themed Reading List

I’ve tried square-foot gardening and plant-what-you-want-wherever-you-want gardening. I’ve rotated veggies and I’ve also kept them in the same space and refreshed the soil. It’s a fun hobby that […]

Mega Reads Goals: February Reading Wrap-up

Posted March 1, 2023 by Richetta in Monthly Wrap-up

February was a short, but busy month. Between my birthday and other things going on I didn’t finish as many books as I would have liked. I actually spent a good chunk of time setting up my reading journal for the year. So I’m happy about that and will hopefully share more in future posts. […]

7 Cookbooks That Celebrate Soul Food

7 Cookbooks That Celebrate Soul Food

Posted February 19, 2023 by Richetta in Book Themes, Themed Reading List

I love soul food! I recently checked out a few soul food cookbooks from the library. So I thought I would put together a quick list of old and new cookbooks by Black chefs. Soul food recipes are steeped in tradition. They include knowledge handed down through generations. As a traditionalist when it comes to […]
