If you know anything at all about Romeo & Juliet… you should enjoy this.😉
If you don’t enjoy it…..  I’m not sure that we can be friends.😛

I originally shared this back in….. 2012, I think?  But I recently prettied it up with this photo that I found so I thought I’d share it again.😉

Autumn Brides — A Year Of Weddings (part 4)

Autumn Brides: A Year of Weddings Novella Collection


A September Bride (A Year of Weddings, #10)  #10– A September Bride by Kathryn Springer

Very good! Though the ending was a bit disappointing… too rushed for my taste.  4 Stars.

An October Bride (A Year of Weddings, #11)  #11– An October Bride by Katie Ganshert

I really liked this one! The characters, the storyline, the writing style… All good! It made me cry. And it made me want to read more about this family and this town! I definitely need to see about getting some more of this author’s books to read.🙂  4 Stars.

A November Bride (A Year of Weddings, #12)  #12– A November Bride by Beth K. Vogt

Very good! Can’t tell y’all how much I truly enjoyed this story!🙂  4 Stars.

Throwback to November 2015

I recently came across something the other day… something that I wrote last November.

It was sort of a challenge from some friends of mine.  It’s not my usual poetry style, but I gave it a shot anyway.  I didn’t share it last year, but I thought I’d go ahead and share it now.😉

I titled this: Rambling


I don’t know what I could say
About my life or about my day
That y’all would really care to hear
Guess I’ll just bore you all to tears
So I’ll apologize in advance
If this poem makes you look askance
This really is my best effort
Even if it makes your brain hurt
Right now I’m helping a boy with school
He’s almost finished– ain’t that cool?!
But when he’s done, there’s more work for me
I need to clean the fridge and do laundry
And this has got me all ecstatic
(Can you tell that I’m a bit sarcastic?)
All through the weekend I’ll be busy too
But there is one fun thing I get to do
I’ll get to enjoy my favorite thing about fall:
The Oklahoma Sooners playing football!


Anyhoo– I hope y’all at least got a bit of a giggle out of that.😉

Summer Brides — A Year Of Weddings (part 3)

Summer Brides (A Year of Weddings)


A June Bride (A Year of Weddings, #7)  #7– A June Bride by Marybeth Whalen

Finished this within a couple of hours. I can describe it in three words: not so great. It was okay, I guess, but the “hero” of the story barely even made an appearance & the relationship was based solely on backstory between the couple so I didn’t get to see their relationship develop at all. And the ending was very abrupt too.
Kinda disappointing…  2 Stars

A July Bride (A Year of Weddings, #8)  #8– A July Bride by Beth Wiseman

I did not enjoy this book at all. More than anything else, it just irritated me. I finished it for two reasons: 1) It’s part of the series and I was determined to read every book so that I could count it toward my “finish the series” challenge– yeah, the one that I’ve already finished… but I’m just stubborn like that sometimes.😛 2) I thought it might get better the more I read. Yeah… no.
I have to ask: was the author trying to get the readers to like Dalton or what? Because I felt like she kinda wanted us to like him– or at least, maybe be unsure whether we liked him or not. Maybe I’m wrong… that’s just the feeling I got. But I couldn’t stand the guy! And… Oh gosh… I just want to go into a total rant about Alyssa’s brother! If I found out that one of my brothers kept something like that from me… they might never be seen or heard from again. Okay, I’m kidding– but you get the idea.😛
Well, I suppose one good thing came out of reading this book: I appreciate my brothers more because I know they wouldn’t keep something so important to themselves. I doubt any of them will ever read this, but… Thanks Guys– I love y’all!!! ;D  1 Star.

An August Bride (A Year of Weddings, #9)  #9– An August Bride by Debra Clopton

I was so happy with this book– especially after the last 3 in this series being 1- or 2-star reads. The “posse” was quite funny and entertaining and I loved them! I really liked Kelsey and Brent too and enjoyed seeing their relationship develop.
Overall, a fun read!🙂  4 Stars.

Spring Brides — A Year Of Weddings (part 2)

Spring Brides: A Year of Weddings Novella Collection


A March Bride (A Year of Weddings, #4)  #4– A March Bride by Rachel Hauck

I ended up mostly speed-reading through this book. It’s just not the type of story that I really enjoy.  1 Star.

An April Bride (A Year of Weddings, #5)  #5– An April Bride by Lenora Worth

I really enjoyed this one! It’s not super great, but it is very good– especially for a shorter story.🙂  3 Stars.

A May Bride (A Year of Weddings, #6)  #6– A May Bride by Meg Moseley

I did not enjoy this book. In fact, it may be my least favorite of this series so far.
The characters were wholly unlikable. Gray drove me crazy with his temper tantrums and Ellie put up with way too much from him as well as from her mom. Ellie and Gray did not seem at all compatible to me and I just do not see their relationship surviving. So, instead of rooting for them as a couple, I was actually wishing they wouldn’t get together because a marriage between them just seemed like a disaster in the making.  1 Star.

Happy November!


See more of my photos on my photo blog!😀


Hey, y’all!  :)

It’s me, Aerykah (obviously), just popping in here to say: Happy November!😉  And also to let y’all, my lovely readers, know that I will be pretty absent for the rest of this year.  There will be some posts– at least one each week– but not many.  Nothing is wrong or anything…  It’s just that, with the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s holidays coming up, I know I’ll be busier than usual.  And, to be honest, this time of the year just kinda stresses me out a bit so… yeah.😐

I hope you are all having a lovely November!  Thanks so much for following and reading my blog.  And for the comments– I do love to hear from y’all!😀

God Bless!❤
