HOLES by Louis Sachar

Apparently I missed the stop for the Holes train when I was younger, because it feels as though everyone else has read this book except for me. After countless people recommended it to me (both through blogging and in my everyday life), I finally decided to listen to the audio book version this summer. While the many positive… Continue reading HOLES by Louis Sachar

THE SUN ALSO RISES by Ernest Hemingway | Reread

When I First Read I first read this classic American novel in April 2015, almost exactly one year before I reread it again in April 2016.
