Bella! In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri
When Jhumpa Lahiri was in her twenties, she fell in love with Italian. Not An Italian. Italian, the language. She spent the next several years bouncing from teacher to teacher in the United States trying to learn the language but never conquering it. Finall...

Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Feeling Old On the Internets
This past week there was a post that blew up Twitter. I'm not going to link to it, because...well, because. It was a loooooong post about all the things that bugged this person about book blogging: ARC envy, blogger/author friendships, sponsored content. It...

My Thoughts on I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson
I've never been into fad diets. They never seem sustainable to me. I've always believed that if you eat a balanced diet and don't overindulge too often, you'll be okay. I found out that maybe I wasn't doing so good. I started tracking my eating habits a few...
