    There is a nearly constant negativity in the Cullman community surrounding the mere existence of Rock the South. This year was no different and the naysayers are having a field day after this year’s festival. Yes, it rained. It rained a lot. What they don’t seem to understand is...
    Isn’t it funny how if you hear something repeated enough, it begins to sound like the truth? I am not referring to actual statements of fact, no. I am speaking in reference to how we tell ourselves the same lie over and over, which will slip out so naturally...
    How many times a day do you apologize? I am not talking about when you actually feel as if you did something wrong either. I am asking, how many times a day are you apologizing for things that do not actually require one?  For instance, you are in line checking...
    I’ve mentioned in other reviews how I am not a fan of love stories, but this week, I found Karen White’s "The Sound of Glass" and it might have converted me. Though this book is very much a love story, it isn’t necessarily a romance. With careful writing, White...

    Last week, I wrote about how I had greatly enjoyed Ruth Ware’s work on, “Into A Dark, Dark Wood” and this week, I have decided to bring you another story of hers called, “The Woman in Cabin 10.” I have said it before and I will say it again,...
    When will I ever learn? I know better, but it’s so hard to fight the urge. I’m talking primarily about indulging in the horrible comment section under pretty much any post on social media. Have people always been so hateful? Why has the internet given people the idea that...
    “I am running. I am running through moonlit woods, with branches ripping at my clothes and my feet catching in the snow-bowed bracken.” With this line, “Into A Dark, Dark Wood” by Ruth Ware grabs readers’ attention immediately and refuses to let go until the story has reached its...
