War and Peace and the Great Comet of 1812
Over the past two years, I've gotten really into Broadway musicals. Of course, I end up listening to the same ones over and over and I can't keep up with how many good shows are playing at the moment... but that's a story for another time.  This is a story ...

A Little Something Different
I've been pretty absent from this pretty underdeveloped blog lately. I've written about my busy life and my struggles with finding time for reading, and don't worry, I won't rehash that here. But I do want to share some of the important things in my life. I...

June Wrap-Up
Is June really over? How did that happen? The month absolutely flew by--but don't worry, I did manage to read several books. And there was a pretty good mix this month: nonfiction, fiction, YA, adult, graphic novel, contemporaries, and sci-fi. Let's talk ab...

Book Review: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
I did it, you guys. I finally read The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I've had it on my shelf for about a year now, and I even brought it with me to college, only to pack it up again in May, unopened. But now I have done it--I finished this 771-page beast. And.....

Life Update: I Survived My First Year of College!
I recently got home from my first year of college (still feels really weird to say that). And I enjoyed it. I had some trouble adjusting to things (roommates, homesickness, anxiety, etc.), but for the most part, it was a great experience. And I know I made ...

Anticipated 2017
When I want to read, but can't, I just add more books to my TBR. So, as you can guess, I've built up quite a list of books being published in 2017 that I would love to read. And, yes, it is February, and thus maybe a bit late for this, but I'm reading slowe...

2016 Favorites
2016... There aren't a ton of great things to say about 2016. A lot of bad things happened, and the general consensus is that 2016 was a dumpster fire. BUT it wasn't all bad. I started college, and I'm enjoying myself. I moved to a new place, with new peopl...

Updates and Happy Books
So. Did I talk about a reading slump last time? That's funny, because here I am, still in one. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm reading a ton for classes, but I haven't been able to read for fun for over a month. That Goodreads challenge bar mocks me. This t...

Reading Slumps
Picture this: I'm sitting in my new dorm room, and I've just finished reading a 30 page Aristotle essay, 25 pages about New Criticism, and multiple essays about feminism and intersectionality (Have I mentioned I love my women's studies class? I do). I final...
