Rejected Princesses

If anyone follows me closely (either on the blog or on Goodreads), you’ll notice that this book has been listed under my “currently reading” since the summer. Well the reason why is a super cute story, so buckle up. I saw a few photos of pages from this book and absolutely fell in love with… Continue reading Rejected Princesses

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

I have seen so many people say that this was one of their favorite YA reads of 2017. I hadn’t really thought of reading it to start with. I mean, it looked pretty good, but it just didn’t jump out at me right away (and there are so many books that do, and my TBR… Continue reading The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

My Life on the Road

I picked up this book, well actually, audiobook, because a couple of the “feminist” pieces I’ve read this year referenced Steinem, her writing and her work. I had heard of her, of course, and had some inkling of what she has done, but decided that perhaps I should know more. It’s always a richer contemporary… Continue reading My Life on the Road

My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry

Confession - I read this book almost two years ago now and I haven't had a chance to reread it since then. But as I was sitting and thinking of the right book to post about to end the year, this one popped into mind almost immediately. And conveniently enough, we were going to visit… Continue reading My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

This one has been on my TBR for a while, over a year for sure, and I’m not sure what made me finally pick it up. I’m also not sure what I thought it was about when I added it to my TBR, because after starting to read it, I realized it was absolutely nothing… Continue reading The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

First of all, with a title like this, I really don’t understand how you could not be interested. Seriously. On top of that, it’s categorized in a genre known as “space opera.” I have been into scifi and fantasy for pretty much ever, but hadn’t heard that term until this past year. In fact, I… Continue reading The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Reading Challenge Wrap-Up 2017

I had a very exhausting (but very fun) weekend. One of my oldest/best friends gets married at the end of the month and I was at her bachelorette party. With a record-setting escape room escape (my first time doing one - it was so intricate and intense!), a tacky lights 6k in the snow (and I… Continue reading Reading Challenge Wrap-Up 2017
