The Totally Should’ve Book Tag | 2

Hope you're all having a lovely Friday! Today I'm here with the Totally Should've Book Tag, which I was tagged for by Norees @ Nor Reads Too Great.  This tag was created by EmmmaBooks. I've done this tag once before, but I always like repeating tags because it's interesting to see how my answers change …

CITY OF GLASS by Paul Auster | Reflection

In my Postmodern American Fiction class this past semester, we were assigned to write a page reflection each week on the book that we read. I actually really enjoyed writing these reflections because they were a chance to choose a specific aspect of the book and discuss it in depth without needed to come to …

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books Released in the Last 10 Years

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share our favorite books released in the last 10 years. As someone who tends to read older books and isn't great at staying on top of new releases, I'm pretty intrigued to see how this list will go. I …

5 Questions to Help Get Rid of Books

Recently I got rid of an entire trash bag full of books to donate. Anyone who has ever stepped foot into my bedroom at home knows that this is a surprising feat because I rarely part ways with books. Books are something I'm usually very sentimental about, which makes it hard to get rid of them when …

Summer 2019 TBR List

It's that exciting time of year again: Time for a summer to-read list! Thanks to my current in-between state of having just graduated undergrad but not yet started law school, I have an entire Glorious Summer of Reading for Fun ahead of me, which I haven't had in years. The past few summers were filled with prep …

Done with my English major?!?!

It's done! I graduated from Wheaton with a BA in English! It's a strange feeling, being done with my English major after so many years of looking forward to and working towards it. I've been incredibly lucky to have had this opportunity to dive into the study of literature, especially for an intensive year at …

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wouldn’t Let Anyone Borrow

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme is technically about books we refuse to let anyone touch; however, I'm going to twist it a bit and share some books that I wouldn't let anyone borrow. It occurred to me when thinking about the original prompt that there aren't any books on my shelves that I wouldn't show …

Top Ten Tuesday: Books Behind Films (On My TBR)

Happy Tuesday!! It's been so long since I've joined the TTT train, but now that my semester has ended (and UNDERGRAD) I'm excited to jump back in! This week the Top Ten Tuesday theme (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is a page to screen freebie, so I've decided to share ten books behind films that are on …

Books I Wished I Had Been Assigned to Read as an English Major

In less than a week I graduate with a bachelor's degree in English, and it's a very bittersweet moment for me. Although I am very excited to move onto another chapter of my life, I'm also sad to leave my amazing friends and the lovely Wheaton community behind. However, the end of undergrad also marks …
