By on June 12, 2019

The review is here! I recently finished The Rosie Effect and it was everything I could have hoped for from a sequel. Not only were the characters as amazing as ever, but the plot was so good. I don’t know if I can say that it was even better than The Rosie Project, but it’s […]

Review: Children of Blood and Bone

By on April 2, 2019

I have been hearing rave reviews about Children of Blood and Bone for months — including one person telling me that it was like Harry Potter, but with West African magic. So, I plucked it out of by pile of unread books, and got to it. And, y’all. I finally finished it. It took me […]

Melbourne: What Not to Miss

By on March 26, 2019

You may remember that I was in Australia over the summer. And I have to say, looking back at my photos still gives me post-travel depression. To combat my FOMO from everything Oz, I thought I’d share a few of my Melbourne favorites. These are the things you definitely won’t want to miss if you […]
