Book Review: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

I finally did it. I finally read the book that the internet has been raving about for the last few years. This is the book that on YouTube I swear everyone was talking about a couple years ago, even those who don't read books. The minimalist movement really started to appeal to me a few … Continue reading Book Review: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

May 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I feel like 2020 is just divulving into chaos...why can't we all not be idiots and replace violence with love? Anyways, I will avoid everything crazy going on and focus on my reading this month. I had a pretty good month, reading 12 books (including two rereads). I'm also starting a big reread for the … Continue reading May 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Stay at Home Book Tag

Well, we're still here. I'm still stuck in my house and, for the most part, America is still in quarantine. So I figured I might as well do another book tag themed around staying at home. This one was originally created by Princess of Paperback on Youtube, and looked like a perfect tag to do … Continue reading Stay at Home Book Tag

Book Review: The Deep by Alma Katsu

I am drawn to any retelling of the sinking of the Titanic. When I saw this book coming out, which takes a more supernatural twist on the real-life tragedy, I felt I had to read it. And, while my feelings were mixed, I did find it to be a creepy and interesting novel. Release: March … Continue reading Book Review: The Deep by Alma Katsu

Book Review: And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander

This book is the first of the Lady Emily series, a series I have seen on the shelves of bookstores and libraries alike for years and, despite it being part of one of my favorite genres (historical cozy mysteries), I have never read it before. Until now. When I put it on my TBR, there … Continue reading Book Review: And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander

Book Review: The Call of the Wild by Jack London

I've read a couple short stories by Jack London and I've really enjoyed his writing, especially when it comes to serious stories about man v. nature and our separation from the harsh realities of nature. This book, is perhaps his most famous, or at least I know I've seen it around a lot. It's also … Continue reading Book Review: The Call of the Wild by Jack London

Book Review: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty

I've watched Caitlin's Youtube channel Ask a Motician for a few years (though I haven't kept up with the latest videos), and I've owned this book for almost as long. I actually had the opportunity to meet Caitlin a couple years ago when she did a speaking event at an art museum in Minneapolis, Minnesota. … Continue reading Book Review: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty
