ONE MORE THING by B.J. Novak | Review

Two years ago when I first entered college (it's been that long already?!) I was faced with the dilemma of how to juggle my love of reading for pleasure with all of the work I was assigned for classes. For the most part, the solution I ultimately employed was to put my reading on pause… Continue reading ONE MORE THING by B.J. Novak | Review

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books of 2017 (So Far)

Happy Tuesday!! Since we're around halfway done with 2017 (eek!) it's time to reflect on what I've read so far this year. Though my reading slowed to a near halt during the first few months of this year due to my busy semester at school, but it picked up significantly once I moved back home… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books of 2017 (So Far)

My Problem with Shakespeare | Discussion

Confession: I don't particularly like Shakespeare. Usually when I tell people I'm not a huge fan of Shakespeare I receive a piercing glare and a disapproving "Really?" This conversation inevitably results in me trying to defend my opinions while undergoing intense scrutiny from the opposing party. Apathy towards the Bard was the norm when I… Continue reading My Problem with Shakespeare | Discussion

JULIUS CAESAR by William Shakespeare | Review

If you've stuck around this blog for a while then you may be familiar with the love-hate relationship I share with William Shakespeare. The Bard and I have never really clicked, mostly because a) I'm easily frustrated by his use of tricky English puns and b) I'm easily annoyed by the melodramatic nature of many… Continue reading JULIUS CAESAR by William Shakespeare | Review

Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Need to Finish

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme is technically about book series that I want to start; however, the more pressing issue on my mind is the fact that there are SO MANY series that I need to FINISH. Once again I'm going to break the TTT status quo and switch it up a… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Need to Finish

College, Life

I’m studying at OXFORD?!?! | Study Abroad

I'll be spending the entirety of my junior year of college studying abroad at Oxford University in England. There. I said it. I was accepted to study English literature at Mansfield College (one of the many colleges within the Oxford University system) back in late February of this year, yet I've put off actually talking… Continue reading I’m studying at OXFORD?!?! | Study Abroad


The Happy Videos Tag

Hello, hello!! I'm super excited about today's tag because it was actually created by my awesome friend Christina @ The Penniless Optimist. She often talks about her "happy videos," or the videos that she watches whenever she needs a bit of a pick-me-up. As a way to spread some smiles she decided to make this Happy… Continue reading The Happy Videos Tag


AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir | Review

Months ago I won a copy of An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir in an online giveaway. After enduring its impatient glare from my bookshelf for as long as I could, I finally picked it up and gave it the attention that all of the buzz surrounding it suggests it deserves. Unfortunately, this… Continue reading AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir | Review
