New Years Resolutions?

I know, I know. I talked about getting back to blogging in my last post, and here I am over a month (ouch!) later with my first post since then. But since this is the time for resolutions, I’m going to make mine, right now, on this blog. First and obvious things first – get […]


It’s been a long time since I last posted! When I last posted, I had literally just started my job, and now I’ve been there almost four months…. Time has been doing that funny thing it does where it feels simultaneously incredibly fast and painfully slow. You know what I’m talking about? Where I find […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately, again

Hello everyone! A lot has happened since my last post, and while I don’t want to be that person and give excuses for my terrible lack of attention to this blog, I can explain a little! For one, the Columbia Publishing Course has ended. 😦 I will never forget all the memories I made, everything I […]

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks

Just got home from chilling on the beach with my family. I figured I should share what book has been keeping me occupied. For all those needing a break from the flood of dystopian, teen novels I post, this one’s for you. This book contains the clinical tales of neurologist Oliver Sacks and his patients. […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately

Hello beautiful readers! (all 5 of you) I love New York City. I love being here and buying books and ice cream on Saturday afternoons and walking around the city and going for brunch on Sunday mornings. I’m also really enjoying the Columbia Publishing Course, and while I don’t have the massive amounts of free […]

Paper Towns, John Green

Paper Towns, John Green, Speak My first review from NYC! I bought this book at Book Culture, one of many bookstores in and around the Columbia campus, with the hopes that I would have time to read it in between our crazy-packed schedule of amazing speakers at CPC. Both fortunately and unfortunately, my cousin, with […]

Hush, Hush, Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush, Hush, Becca Fitzpatrick, Simon and Schuster Hey y’all! I can’t believe how fast the last few weeks have gone by – I’m only days away from spending six weeks in NYC! This program is supposed to be pretty intense, so I don’t know how much reading, reviewing, and posting I’ll be able to do, […]

The Witches of East End, Melissa de la Cruz

The Witches of East End, Melissa de la Cruz, Disney-Hyperion I usually try to go into a new book without many expectations, but sometimes it happens anyways. I had high hopes for this book. It sounded so promising – witches! romance! good vs evil! Not to mention the pretty cover! But all hopes aside, The […]

The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Avi

The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Avi, HarperTrophy Ok y’all, we’re throwing it back today. Just pretend it’s Thursday, if that bothers you. I read like three books in the last two weeks and was too lazy to write reviews for any of them until now, so this will be a review-heavy week. Get ready […]
