A couple of weeks ago, Hannah @ So Obsessed With posted this absolutely fantastic post about non-fiction and finding what works for you. I’ll admit, non-fiction has never interested me much until recently. As Hannah so keenly points out, reading something you don’t care about (or in my case, having to read it for school) …

My Review of “Isla and the Happily Ever After”:
For perhaps the first time in three or four years, a book so thoroughly blew me away that I sat down to read it and immediately reread it cover to cover. Not skimmed for review notes. No. A complete and total reread. I read …

Top 10 Tuesday: Books People Have Been Pushing
1. Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell: I’ll admit – I’m REALLY nervous about this one. It’s a favorite among many, including my good friend Stormy @ Book.Blog.Bake but I’m afraid that I …

Last year, one of the biggest challenges I completed was TBR Madness – a self-inflicted combination of book ban, TBR whittling, and an appraisal of my bookish spending.

Re-Read Round Up is an original feature wherein I talk about books I’m rereading and may have already reviewed, or that I just want to talk about in a non-review format.
For some reason, while Goblet-of-Fire-the-book never stood out to me in the series overall, Goblet-the-movie has always been my favorite. Goblet-the-movie …

I AM IN LOVE WITH THE SECRET DIARY OF LIZZIE BENNET.
Did you watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries? Because they’re totally and completely amazing and YOU SHOULD. Like every LBD fan, I was super excited about the book, but not sure exactly how it would be different from the web series.
The Book as a Multimedia …

My Review of “Vicious”:
“Life – the way it really is – is a battle not between Bad and Good, but between Bad and Worse. – Joseph Brodsky”
College roommates Victor and Eli are brilliant – the kind of brilliant that paired with an ambitious, cutting personality means they’re one lab accident away from super …
