Book Nook: Anne of the Island – L.M. Montgomery

And we’re back with more of Anne with an E.

Be aware that all 3 books I’m going to be talking about have the title Anne of (somewhere). So, after the first reference of each book, I’m just going to refer to each as whatever place Anne is “of” in that particular book title.

Book Nook: The Center Cannot Hold – Elyn R. Saks

When I started my blog a few years ago, it was a place for me to write about my thoughts on mental health. I would write about things that I was feeling, and I’d share what I wanted others to know about what it’s like to struggle with mental illness.
