Who the h*ll is Maggie?! | The Who Are You Tag

Hey, y’all! Maggie here, trying to make a storming comeback from an intense blogging slump! I decided to copycat Lila and fill out the Who Are You tag myself – I’m excited for our readers to get to know me a little better, especially since I’ve been incredibly absent around here lately. I was so…

MIA Update

Hey, y’all! I wouldn’t be surprised if anyone had been curious about whether Lila was once again the sole bookkeeper! But I’m back, maybe with a vengeance – I really just wanted to say ‘with a vengeance’. Anyway, I’m making my way back to The Bookkeepers’ Secrets – note the plural πŸ˜€ – and decided…

Momentarily Maggie β”‚Adventures in Foster Care, Part One

I’ve been relaxing on the couch, watching Dr. Phil tonight. The subject matter of the particular episode I watched concerned a two-year-old child who is living out of a truck with his father. The story caused me to reflect on my experiences as a still green social worker. My first real job right out of…

Momentarily Maggie β”‚ And So it Began

Hello, I’m Maggie and I, like all of y’all, have tales to tell. I figure what better platform than our blog?! So, welcome to the first installment of a tentative series, in which I tell you various tales! πŸ˜€ I decided that I’d like to get a little more personal with all of you wonderful,…

Maggie Reviews β”‚ Rebecca

It’s no wonder Alfred Hitchcock adapted Rebecca for the silver screen. Daphne du Maurier’s gothic tale of horror follows the tumultuous relationship between Maxim de Winter and his second, much younger, wife, whom he meets while virtually escaping the memories he has of his home in England, Manderley. Maxim quickly marries his young bride and…

Maggie Reviews β”‚ Saga, Volume 1

My first foray into the world of the graphic novel, Saga blew my mind – in an excellent way. I did have a sneaking suspicion that I’d enjoy Saga, as it was recommended to me by a bunch of avid readers and bloggers. Let me just say that this book very much exceeded my already…

TV Junkie β”‚ Maggie’s Shows

I am a bona-fide television nut! I often make it my weekend mission to clear out as much space on my DVR as possible, which is difficult, as we tape SO many shows and movies! My husband is hogging all kinds of precious DVR space with every single episode, 200+, of King of the Hill!…

Challenged | Maggie’s Lofty 2017 Reading Goals

There is no shortage of reading challenges taking place in 2017 – so many lasting throughout the year are already cropping up all around blog land! Although I historically am not too hot at actually completing challenges for which I sign up, I absolutely adore starting with a clean reading slate each year. Maybe 2017…

WIN! β”‚ January Book of Choice Giveaway Hop

I β™₯ giveaways! I adore entering them, naturally, but even more I enjoy hosting them! A consummate gift giver, I probably get at least equally as excited as the winners of my giveaways – surprising others is my favorite! This go around, I’m joining in on the January Book of Choice Giveaway Hop, hosted by…

Maggie’s 2016 End of Year Book Survey

I’m so excited it’s time for The Perpetual Page-Turner’s 7th Annual End of Year Book Survey! Thanks so much to Jamie for continuing the questionnaire tradition! It’s so hard to believe that the end of 2016 is upon us, fading soon into 2017. It’s just unbelievable to me how quickly time seems to pass as…

Maggie Reviews β”‚ Anna Dressed in Blood

I wanted to love Anna Dressed in Blood SO bad. Unfortunately, I believe I set my expectations for the book way too high. Judging from its title and creepy cover, I anticipated being scared to death while reading. There are some admittedly creepily gross parts, but there are few. Since I rarely read summaries prior…

Maggie Reviews β”‚ Insanity

Well, I sure am glad I went into reading Cameron Jace’s Insanity, the first in the series of the same name, without reading the summary on Goodreads – had I read it, I wouldn’t have been so pleasantly surprised by the story’s plot. I’ve been curious about Insanity for a long time, but had held…
