Book Review: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance

I've seen this book around a lot, and was a bit curious to read it, but it wasn't until I read Diana's review from Ideas on Papyrus that I knew I had to read it. And, I will say, I wasn't disappointed at all. This book is absolute incredible, and one I could easily recommend … Continue reading Book Review: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance

You don't need a high vocabulary to read his books, and yet he breaks down extremely complicated concepts … Continue reading Book Review: Surprised by Joy by C.S. Lewis

From Star Wars to Halloween Town to The Unsinkable Molly Brown to Singing in the Rain, this mother and daughter duo were a big part of my childhood. And in 2016 when they both died a mere two days apart, I was sad … Continue reading Book Review: My Girls: My Lifetime With Carrie and Debbie by Todd Fisher
