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… Continue reading The Totally Should’ve Book Tag | 2

Top Ten Tuesday: Best 10 of 2018 {So Far}

Happy Tuesday!! Can you believe that we're already over half way through 2018 already?! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share the best 10 books we've read so far in 2018. I've already read far more than I expected to this year--mostly due to my sprawling required… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Best 10 of 2018 {So Far}

Feminist Fridays: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I was thrilled that part of my postcolonial literature tutorial during my last term at Oxford was reading and writing about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Fifteen years after the publication of her debut novel Purple Hibiscus in 2003, Adichie continues to make headlines today. Not only is she known as a renowned Nigerian novelist, but she has also made… Continue reading Feminist Fridays: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Monthly Wrap-Up

APRIL 2018 | Wrap-Up

T.S. Eliot famously wrote in The Waste Land that "April is the cruelest month." Fortunately, this particular month of April has been remarkably kind to me! Between traveling, spending time with friends, starting a new term, and planning for some exciting days to come, this past month was filled with moments that I know I won't soon… Continue reading APRIL 2018 | Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday: Spring 2018 TBR

Happy Tuesday!! It's that time of year again: bring out the spring 2018 TBR lists! Every season I set a TBR list and then completely forget about it by the time I have to create another one for the next season... when will this vicious cycle end? (Not anytime soon!) Since I now have my… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Spring 2018 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 2017 (But Didn’t)

Happy Tuesday!! As you have probably noticed by now, I'm pretty awful at sticking to TBR lists. Whenever I make one for a specific month, season, or read-a-thon I inevitably end up scrapping the entire thing and just reading whatever seems appealing in that moment. As a result, there are SO MANY books that I… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 2017 (But Didn’t)

Top Ten Tuesday: Winter 2017 TBR

Happy Tuesday!! I think it's now safe to say that winter is pretty much here, meaning that it's time to start thinking about winter TBR lists. I'm awful at sticking to TBRs-- especially since I have so much to read for course work already-- but I would really love to read at least a few of the… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Winter 2017 TBR

Haul

Summer is Here! | Book Haul

Not long ago I wrote a post discussing book hauls and why I haven't posted many in the past. However, the more I think about it the more I feel like this could be a fun way to share the books that I'm currently really excited about reading and discussing. Without further ado, here are… Continue reading Summer is Here! | Book Haul

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer 2017 TBR

Happy Tuesday!! June is almost here, meaning that summer is right around the corner! (In my mind it's been summer for a few weeks now because my semester ended a while ago, but I guess if we're talking seasons then we still have a bit to go...) Anyways, today's Top Ten Tuesday theme from The… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Summer 2017 TBR
