Reader’s Delight

As a birthday treat to myself, I bought a grab bag from Out of Print. I had previously bought a sweatshirt and some socks from them over Christmas and was super impressed with the quality, so when the grab bags came back in stock I jumped on the opportunity to buy one. And I thought... Continue Reading →

2019 Writing Goals

I've seen this floating around on twitter, and thought I'd document my own personal writing goals for the new year in this week's post. And so, when I inevitably feel myself slacking, I can look back on this post and hopefully give myself a good kick in the rear. When plans remain in a nebulous... Continue Reading →

Books I “Hate”

I mean... "hate" is a strong word, and it implies a whole slew of negative things, which is not my intention with this post.

In the late spring of 2014, I got to visit every English major's dream locale; Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. I have actually been lucky enough to visit a few literature-based landmarks on my ventures across the pond, including the Peter Pan statue in Kensington Gardens (Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie is one of...

Book Favorites: Childhood Edition

Here's a list of books that I read in Elementary School, grades K-6, ages 5-12, which have stayed with me in some way, whether it be their story-lines, their inspiring characters, or an especially scarring scene. Most are from the later stages of primary schooling, but all of these titles have had an impact on... Continue Reading →
