Climbing the Misty Mountains // Wreck This Journal 8

Follow me as I adventure through my copy of Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith. Click here to see my other completed pages!The instructions on this page read: Climb up high. Drop the journal. I knew that I didn't want to actually drop the journal from any significant height, so I had to get creative. Inspiration for this page struck … Continue reading Climbing the Misty Mountains // Wreck This Journal 8

HAMLET by William Shakespeare

To like Hamlet or not like Hamlet, that is the question... I have a confession to make: I'm not really a big fan of Shakespeare. Ever since first reading one of his works as a freshman in high school (Romeo and Juliet, naturally) I've had mixed feelings about the Bard. To be quite honest, none of … Continue reading HAMLET by William Shakespeare

PERSUASION by Jane Austen

Before reading Persuasion, the only novel I had ever read by Jane Austen was Pride and Prejudice, which I adored. I actually read the two back to back, which I quickly realized was a bit of a mistake. I found there to be a distinct difference in the tones of these two novels, and I was not expecting the more … Continue reading PERSUASION by Jane Austen

ABOUT GRACE by Anthony Doerr

Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See is easily one of the best novels I have ever read. I read it during Christmastime in 2014 and absolutely gushed about my love for it in a review I wrote shortly thereafter. It's one of those books that sticks with you long after you read it, and consequently … Continue reading ABOUT GRACE by Anthony Doerr

Usually I get so caught up in reading the next book on my shelf that I don’t get around … Continue reading PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Jane Austen

My 2015 Reading Statistics

It's that time of year again when I break out the calculator and start crunching numbers-- for the sake of bookishness, of course! In 2015 I surpassed my initial Goodreads goal of 24 books by reading 56 books, which amounts to a total of 17,740 pages read. If you'd like to check out my Goodreads Year in Books … Continue reading My 2015 Reading Statistics

Looking Back at 2015

2015 was a crazy year. College acceptance letters arrived in my mailbox. I found out that I possibly have exercised induced anaphylaxis (it's a long story). I decided to attend Wheaton College in Norton, MA. I saw Walk the Moon perform at the House of Blues in Boston. I survived (and passed!) 4 AP exams. … Continue reading Looking Back at 2015
