Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

The Unexpected Everything is the perfect summer read; it’s fluffy, full of funny scenes, and has the best friendships and relationships EVER. This book doesn’t veer too far from Matson’s earlier books, although it’s a lot funnier than I remember her other books being. The main themes in the book are friendship (especially like in Since You’ve Been Gone!) and learning to be happy with life instead … Continue reading Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Review: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Turtles All the Way Down was surprisingly refreshing. I say ‘surprisingly’ because it deals with heavy topics, like mental illness and loss of loved ones. So I expected this book to be much sadder and emotional. That’s not to say it wasn’t emotional, because it totally was, but in an uplifting and refreshing way. It left me feeling hopeful. Aza is incredible and I adored her… Aza, … Continue reading Review: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Explanation (a.k.a. why I didn’t read the series earlier): I was … Continue reading My First Time Reading Harry Potter | The Sorcerer’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

It took me TWO months to finish reading The Upside of Unrequited (two whole months!). This wasn’t the fault of the book, though, but instead the result of my busy college life. Remember when I said I was absolutely not going to neglect this blog when school started? Well, I am a liar. I did try though! The Upside of Unrequited is adorable. It is a cute and light … Continue reading Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: Little Forevers by Katie Kaleski

Little Forevers was a let down for me. First, I must mention that I read an Advanced Reader Copy of the book, so there were still edits to be made to the version I read before it would be released. That means the final version could be better than my copy. But even so, I think this book was poorly edited and that the writing … Continue reading Review: Little Forevers by Katie Kaleski

Why ‘The Bold Type’ May Be My New Favorite Show

I’m a show repeater. I rarely ever watch new shows. When I do decide to watch a new show, it’s after the first season has already aired. I don’t like waiting each week for new episodes. Plus, I  just like the comfort of re-watching my favorite characters and knowing exactly what is going to happen. So when I decided to watch The Bold Type’s series … Continue reading Why ‘The Bold Type’ May Be My New Favorite Show
