Great Books to Read On-The-Go

Great Books to Read On-The-Go

Bookish Lists 0

Reading is something we all love to do, but sometimes we find we don’t have much time to sit down and finish even one chapter, whether we just don’t have the patience or the chapters are too long and consuming. I compiled a (very) short list of books that I find are good “on the go” books, meaning they either have short chapters, a lighter plot or are easy to stomach in short bursts without finding yourself in the middle… Read more »

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

4 Stars, Reviews 10

Hola! I found Before I Go to Sleep to be quite intriguing. I knew the experience would be different, with it being the first adult novel I’ve ever read. It definitely suits me recently turning 20 (woop woop). To put it in the simplest of terms, it was good. I won’t go as far as to say that it was amazing, but I definitely did enjoy myself. I guess that’s all that really matters, right? Alright, gotta do a little background… Read more »

Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold

Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold

4 Stars, Reviews 2

Mosquitoland was… something.  Possible spoilers ahead, read with caution. I mean, for the first half of the book I had NO IDEA WHAT WAS HAPPENING. This girl, Mim, overheard her father and stepmom talking to her principal and then decides to steal money from her stepmom and travel across the country to Ohio to visit her sick mother (except we don’t actually know what’s wrong with her). She just RUNS AWAY. Doesn’t ask any questions or anything. NOPE. Running away is… Read more »

My Blog Broke and Other Fun Happenings

My Blog Broke and Other Fun Happenings

Life 10

So my blog sort of broke. It kind of just had a brain fart or something. It just decided to stop functioning for some reason. Well a part of it did, anyway. I don’t know. The other day I noticed I wasn’t getting any email notifications from my blog, like for comments or for new subscribers or anything like that (including the emails for lost passwords – which is scary). So I did some researching on google and after several hours found that my… Read more »

Spring Brings an End to our Freshman Year of College

Spring Brings an End to our Freshman Year of College

Life, Literature 2

So Caylin and I totally disappeared off the face of the earth… But… we’re back now and things are going to be better than ever. I’ll tell you why: First of all, we just finished up our finals and ended our freshman year of college. Why does that matter? Well, we’re on summer break until next September and we’ll have so much more time to read and blog, and most of all, actually do things with our lives. College + poor time management skills = failure…. Read more »

Book Outlet Haul!

Book Haul 2

Hello everyone! A small while back, I discovered bookoutlet.com, and it wasn’t until about a week ago when I actually placed an order, because obviously I have no self control when it comes to books… or pizza. But you know what I’m sayin’. Book Outlet is an online book store that sells bargain books at greatly discounted prices. Their selection isn’t the most varietal, but they have lots of sales and new books coming in all the time!
