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

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

THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS by Ann Brashares | Review

It’s time to shout it from the rooftops, folks: I HAVE FINALLY READ THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS. I’ve heard about this book for so many years—it almost feels as though I popped out from the womb knowing deep down that I would have to read this book someday. It’s on so many YA book… Continue reading THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS by Ann Brashares | Review

THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET by Sandra Cisneros | Review

The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros has always been one of those book titles that I knew, but I didn’t know how or why I knew it. Before this past summer I had never read it before, and I had never even really put together that the Sandra Cisneros I read in my… Continue reading THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET by Sandra Cisneros | Review

THE MOON AND MORE by Sarah Dessen | Review

The first time I read The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen was back in 2013. Although I distinctly remember liking it because of the ending (which I will spoil in this review, so be warned!), I didn’t really remember much of the rest of the plot when I picked it up a second time this summer. I… Continue reading THE MOON AND MORE by Sarah Dessen | Review

ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING by Louise Rennison | Review

After watching the movie adaptation of Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison, I knew that I would have to add this book to my summer TBR. I had seen its fluorescent lime green spine on the shelves of my local public library's YA section for years and had always been curious. You can probably imagine… Continue reading ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING by Louise Rennison | Review

WATERSHIP DOWN by Richard Adams | Review

I picked up Watership Down by Richard Adams earlier this summer because I wanted to read a book that didn’t involve people or romance. My father had recommended this classic to me years ago, so when I saw it on the library shelf I figured I would give it a try. Upon turning to the first page… Continue reading WATERSHIP DOWN by Richard Adams | Review

BECOMING by Michelle Obama | Review

Becoming by Michelle Obama has gotten so much buzz in the past few months that I knew I had to put it on my summer TBR. I also can’t resist a good memoir, especially one written by such a talented, strong, high-profile professional woman. I’ve got a soft spot for presidential biographies, but it occurred to… Continue reading BECOMING by Michelle Obama | Review

MARY POPPINS OPENS THE DOOR by P.L. Travers | Review

Although I know I watched Mary Poppins (1964) at least once as a child, my only vivid memories of it were scenes of the penguins dancing at that garden restaurant and the chimney sweeps dancing on rooftops (a coincidence that these scenes both involve tap dancing?!). However, after recently watching the film with Wheaton's Film Club this… Continue reading MARY POPPINS OPENS THE DOOR by P.L. Travers | Review

TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han | Review

I have been meaning to read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before for the longest time. After reading Jenny Han’s Summer trilogy and not really enjoying it, I was a bit hesitant to pick this series up. However, a couple of my friends convinced me to watch the movie adaptation a few months ago and I immediately adored… Continue reading TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han | Review
