Agh. I don’t know if there’s a way to summarize the overwhelming emotion that comes over me when I finish a fantastic book. I’m happy yet heartbroken, I’m satisfied yet upset, and I’m pleased yet frustrated. Plus, I’m hungry (but that’s not something the book can take responsibility for–I guess my leftover Chipotle wasn’t enough … More I Finished Reading a Book and I’m Heartbroken–But Smiling?
I don’t think there are two things that I love more in this world than books and dogs (except maybe Ed Sheeran and dad jokes). Anyway, Morgan Matson’s The Unexpected Everything happened to COMBINE THESE TWO THINGS (the books and dogs, not Ed and dad jokes, unfortunately) and it made for an adorable summer read. … More Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Over a week later and thoughts about this book are STILL. LINGERING. What is this?! This book consumed me–mind and emotions–so quickly and so deeply. From midnight until 5 a.m. It Ends With Us swallowed me into its surprising, heart-wrenching pages. Even after, sleep did not come while this book was on my mind. Let’s … More Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
I am in total book-hangover mode. I just finished A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas and I am in mourning. You know that feeling where you’re eating something super delicious (like a wonderful piece of Godiva chocolate cheesecake) and you’re so tempted to eat it all at once because it’s so … More Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Wow wow wow. I have so many thoughts in my head surrounding A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury. Oh goodness, it might take me a while to compile all of my thoughts into one post. When I think “fantasy”, my mind automatically turns to the Harry Potter series … More Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Hi there & happy summer! Hooray for my three month-long reading binge! Quite a bit has happened both book-wise and life-wise in the last month. It’s been a while since I’ve written about my reading progress (I haven’t written since March…yikes!) so I’ll quickly get you all up-to-date on where I’m at with my GoodReads … More Recap: Spring/Early Summer Reads
Hey, blog. It’s been a while. About a month, to be exact. I’ve missed ya. But hey! I promise that I’ve been keeping up with THE promise. The promise I made to myself to keep. on. reading. (However, it has become rather difficult to read for fun since, uh, college. That is what got me … More Late Night Thoughts: It’s been a while.
I may or may not cry every time I see the Me Before You movie trailer. And I may have watched it four times in a row today. And it may be because they use “Photograph” by Ed Sheeran and that song makes my heart fill with too many emotions to count. Okay, one of … More Recap: After You by JoJo Moyes, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
I’m not a huge fan of surprises. I’m a very Type A human. I find joy in things like buying a new planner in August every year and organizing my 96 pack of crayons in rainbow order. Basically, I like to know what’s up and be in control of situations I am placed in. So, … More Recap: The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
I’m experiencing the dilemma. It’s always a challenge for me when I reach this predicament because I like to always finish the things I start. And right now, that is The Paris Wife. About a year ago I picked up Paula McLain’s novel at Half Priced Books and due to Kjersten’s Reading Funk of 2015, … More Late Night Thoughts: A Reader’s Dilemma
