My name is Holiday Sanchez. I carry a heavy burden.

But I’m not the only one.

There are others who know what it feels like to remember. Maybe they are the answer. Maybe we can help each other. Maybe I’ll finally get past it.

16-year-old Wendy Davies crashes her car into a lake on a late summer night in New England with her two younger brothers in the backseat. When she wakes in the hospital, she is told that her youngest brother, Michael, is dead. Wendy — a once rational teenager – shocks her family by insisting that Michael is alive and in the custody of a mysterious flying boy. Placed in a new school, Wendy negotiates fantasy and reality as students and adults around her resemble characters from Neverland. Given a sketchbook by her therapist, Wendy starts to draw. But is The Wendy Project merely her safe space, or a portal between worlds? (Source: Goodreads)

Mid-Year Check In

This year I thought I’d do a little check-in, just to see at the halfway point of the year exactly how my goals for the year are coming along. I am currently on hiatus but I still read every single day so hopefully I’ve made some progress.

So I’ll look at my New Year’s Read-olutions and my Goodreads Challenge to see what my goals were and how far I am from finishing. Continue reading

Hiatus

Hi everyone,

I announced a while back that I would be taking a break from the blog and then I very quietly came back, did a ton of reviews and now I’ll be going back on break again.

As my job becomes more demanding I have less and less time to read and even less time to review. When I get the chance I will of course try to post things on here and keep it at least semi-active but I just can’t commit the way I had been doing before.

The next post I can absolute assure will happen will be July 1, my halfway check in on my yearly reading goals. Check back in then! ^.^

Ramble on,
Kimber
