MARCH 2020 | Wrap-Up

Hello, hello! These are certainly not the circumstances I had expected to be writing this post under at the end of the month, but such is life. We must move forward! (Or, in this case, back for a tiny second!) Here's what I was up to in March: A silver-lining in all of this pandemic …

Happy Tuesday!! Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share ten signs you're a book lover. Since I'm currently in my first year of law school, I thought it would be fun to share these signs from a law school perspective. In the United States, you can pretty …

8 Tips for Being a Student When You're Social-Distancing

It's undeniable that we live in strange, strange times. With a virus spreading like wildfire and people being told to stay in their homes, it can feel like we're all stuck in one of those end-of-the-world novels (Stephen King's The Stand, anyone?). But amidst the chaos and uncertainty, those of us in some form of …

FEBRUARY 2020 | Wrap-Up

February has come and gone, taking with it many ups and downs and a few great books. Even though there was an additional day in February this year (happy belated leap day!) this month still whizzed by. Here's what I was up to in February: Unfortunately, I had very little time to read in February. …

JANUARY 2020 | Wrap-Up

Happy January!! It may be a new year, but I'm still going to continue with my same basic monthly wrap-up format. I love writing little wrap-up posts each month because it's fun to look back on the past few weeks and think about what I've read and done. Wrap-ups are also helpful in the future …

Looking Back at 2019

Every year for the past few years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) I've made one of these posts, and each year I'm even more surprised by how much can be packed into just twelve months. 2019 was an... interesting year. The highs were amazing, and the lows were... well, not great. I had a blast during …

Okay, bookworms, it's time for me to divulge a blogging secret.  I'm currently in my first semester of law school, which means that I am officially a Busy Beaver. There's so much reading and briefing and outlining and studying to be done that it takes all of my brain space and time just to keep …

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 …

Should I keep blogging?

I first started blogging when I was in eighth grade. Back then I was fourteen years old and just wanted a space online where I could write book reviews. I had no idea a whole community of book bloggers existed, a little corner of the internet enthralled by discussing literature. I've since gone back and …

Looking Back at 2018

Every year for the past few years (2015, 2016, 2017) I've made one of these posts, and each year I'm even more surprised by how much can be packed into just twelve months. 2018 was a whirlwind year. Sometimes it's hard to believe that the first half of it was spent in magical Oxford, England, …
