These Happy Golden Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder

First Impressions These Happy Golden Years is the perfect ending to Laura Ingalls’ childhood. It really shows how much she has grown and developed. I enjoyed seeing her as an adult and pained for Laura when she expressed her fears and homesickness. Another aspect of the novel was Laura’s courtship to Almanzo Wilder. I appreciated […]

Review Having just read the first book in the series the beginning of The Wish Rider felt a little rehashed. It would be great for someone jumping in as The Wish Rider can be read as a stand alone but it otherwise comes off sounding redundant.  The first half of the book felt like a […]

Yesterday, I experienced what every blogger dreads — the white screen of death. I went into update my theme and bye bye blog.  Being technologically impaired I panicked. I’m not going to lie, I hyperventilated. With shaky hands, I contacted my theme provider, Ashley at NoseGraze and Bluehost. Both responded promptly and helpfully assured me […]

First Impressions Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder is another wonderful installment to the Little House books. I once again looked forward to reading of Laura as she grows up.  This addition to the series was very reminiscent for me. However, it was not because of my reading it as a child. […]
