Review: The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne

Review: The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne

At the end of last year, there was one book that was getting more rave reviews than any other, and I put off reading it for the better part of a year because it was long, I didn’t know if I would like it, I wasn’t in the mood, any number of reasons really. Once I read The Seven Husbands of […]

An Unexpected Favorite: Summer Sisters by Judy Blume

An Unexpected Favorite: Summer Sisters by Judy Blume

I picked up this book from a sea of similar looking titles at the bookstore the other day because I knew it was a classic summer book, and I was in the mood for something beachy/summery to read since the weather was nice.

But recently, I found a new favorite author and I can’t stop, and Dave Eggers is that person. I’m not gonna lie, I’m extremely surprised to find […]

Review: The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel

This month, I read more nonfiction than I ever have in probably my entire life, and now I can’t get enough. One of the first ones I picked up though, was The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel. I had seen a lot of good things about it last year, and finally decided to give it a shot. I remember […]
