Throne of Glass Soundtrack

By on July 2, 2019

If you are anything like me, you really enjoy thinking of songs that should accompany the greatest moments in the book you are currently reading. Or maybe that’s just a weird thing I do. Either way, the Throne of Glass series has so many perfect moments for songs to cut in. I made a soundtrack […]

Review: The Unhoneymooners

By on June 20, 2019

Ok, y’all should know that I love a good rom-com. When Harry Met Sally is one of my top 5 favorite movies ever. And I appreciate all the work that goes into making overused tropes and character arcs fun again. No one is better at that than author-duo Christina Lauren. True–they write, they don’t produce […]

Over the past two years my bookstagram (book-Instagram for those of you who are new here or who don’t follow me) has become a place for me to get book recommendations, […]

By on May 26, 2019

Review: Fangirl

By on May 6, 2019

Rainbow Rowell has written so many popular books, I can’t believe it took me this long to read one. I started with Fangirl because I’ve heard so much about Carry On — the book series that spins off from the fanfiction Cath is writing in Fangirl — that I wanted to read its origin story. […]
