How Reading (and Being an English Major) Creates Empathy and Understanding

Literature 0

First, I’d like to address Diana Gabaldon’s tweet regarding English majors… By now, most people have heard of the “English degrees are useless” tweet that Diana Gaboldon posted a couple weeks ago. If you haven’t, here’s an article that sums it up pretty well. While there’s SO many things wrong with her tweet, especially the blatantly inaccurate notion that English majors are unsuccessful, the part that MOST sticks out to me is the fact that the girl, who asked for… Read more »

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

4 Stars, Reviews 5

My Thoughts I LOVE THIS BOOK. So much. I probably haven’t loved a book this much since I read Eleanor & Park back in October. Which is to say, I love Rainbow Rowell. She has definitely earned a spot on my list of favorite authors. And not just a spot, but a very high spot. As in she is currently my favorite author. But of course, my ‘favorites’ change so often, it’s nothing special, but… just saying. And onto my… Read more »
