What do I ACTUALLY read at the beach?

Summertime has many traditions, including book bloggers making lists of the best beach reads of the season. There are many different kinds of books that people tend to classify as "beach reads," from sunny contemporaries to steamy romance and even gripping thrillers. But what do people actually read at the beach? Not what they intend …

The Summer Bucket List Tag

Today I'm here with the Summer Bucket List Tag, sliding in right at the end of the season. Seeing as I start law school orientation next week (eek!), it seems fitting that I take this last Friday of sunny freedom to do a summery post. Thanks so much to Norees @ No Reads Too Great …

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 …

I was luckily nominated for …

JUNE 2019 | Wrap-Up

  Happy June! What I consider to be the first month of summer has now come to an end, meaning that there's an even warmer, sunnier part of the summer right around the corner. Here's what I was up to this month: In June I read a total of 9 books: Watership Down by Richard Adams …

Falling Asleep While Reading: A Saga

This summer I’ve encountered a dilemma that I haven’t really ever had to deal with before: I keep falling asleep while reading. Now, I’ve never really been much of a night owl. I’ve always preferred going to bed around 11pm and getting up at 7am to going to bed at 2am and getting up at …
