2018 – We have plans!

Last year I sat down around this time, give or take a few days, and started this blog. When I first started, I wasn't exactly sure what this space was going to be. I knew I wanted to explore my writing more, and I wanted to start reviewing books. But I didn't really know what [...]

Turtles All The Way Down – Review

"The thing about a spiral is, if you follow it inward, it never actually ends. It just keeps tightening, infinitely." There are about a million different thoughts rushing through my brain about this book, but there's really only one that's important. If you've ever known someone to struggle with mental illness, this book helps open [...]

A review: Me Before You

Typical romance novels are not my jam. I can do without heaving bosoms and deep, meaningful stares. Bleh. And after falling for the 50 shades hype, I am highly skeptical of all hyped romance novels. Part of my issue with the genre is all the sex. Not that I care about sex in a book. [...]

The Female of the Species

"This is how I kill someone." That sentence signals, buckle up, we're going for a ride. "Dedication: For the victims." The dedication tells you the ride is going to be bumpy. I have been a fan of Mindy McGinnis since I read her duology, Not a Drop to Drink. Her writing style is enthralling, plunging [...]
