A bookshelf tour! (non-textbooks I brought to law school)

Surprise! I'm in law school! You probably know this if you've stuck around this blog for a while, but usually people have a hard time believing that I'm in law school. "But you love books so much!" they say. "Why aren't you an English teacher? Or librarian? Or working in publishing?" That, my friends, is… Continue reading A bookshelf tour!

P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han | Review

I did it: I actually continued on with a series! It’s been quite some time since I’ve actually followed through with a series, mostly because I just didn’t have the time because of all my coursework. But the summer was the best time to catch up on all of my reading, and I ended up… Continue reading P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han | Review

Top Ten Tuesday: Sip, Munch, Read

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share our favorite things to eat and drink while reading. I generally like drinking tea or coffee and eating sweets when I read--but I think I'll let my bookstagram speak for itself...

5 Books Every Incoming English Major Should Read

You read a lot of books as an English major in college. Some books are more enjoyable, interesting, and frankly more worthwhile to read than others. As someone who recently graduated with a degree in English lit, I've thought a lot about all those hours spent staring at pages at my desk or in the… Continue reading 5 Books Every Incoming English Major Should Read

Feminist Fridays: On the memoir of an abortion doctor

Instead of writing a book review of This Common Secret by Susan Wicklund, I wanted to highlight it in the context of a Feminist Friday post. The content and even existence of this book is so important, and I’m hoping framing my post about it in this way will drive that point home. This Common Secret is a… Continue reading Feminist Fridays: On the memoir of an abortion doctor

ONGOINGNESS/300 ARGUMENTS by Sarah Manguso | Review

Ongoingness/300 Arguments by Sarah Manguso initially caught my eye on the Hatchards bookshelf because of its eye-catching design. First, I love books that are small in stature. This book also has the added bonus of actually being two books in one, and flipping it over and over again was too much fun for my little bookish heart. However, what actually… Continue reading ONGOINGNESS/300 ARGUMENTS by Sarah Manguso | Review

A Classic Couple: ANIMAL FARM and WATERSHIP DOWN

Today I'll be discussing a particularly four-legged Classic Couple: Animal Farm by George Orwell (1945) and Watership Down by Richard Adams (1972). Although these books may both be considered "classics" at times, they are rarely considered alongside one another. While Animal Farm is known for being an allegory for the Russian Revolution of 1917, Adams wrote in his Introduction that he… Continue reading A Classic Couple: ANIMAL FARM and WATERSHIP DOWN

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my TBR that I’m avoiding

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share books on our TBR lists that we are avoiding reading. I've decided to focus on books that I'm avoiding reading because I've heard they are sad. I generally don't like reading sad books, and will avoid them at… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my TBR that I’m avoiding
