Here we go! Delayed as always, but at least in the first month of the year. My FAVORITE READS OF 2022 LIST is finalized. 'Twas a struggle this year, if I'm being honest.

My Book Blogging Journey: Year Four
Four years. Four! This is my fourth year of sharing my book reviews. And I still love it. Though I've also learned quite a bit as well, like, despite the fact that reviews get less interaction and interest than anything other posts, I still am here for that. I'll post a couple challenges and my… Continue reading My Book Blogging Journey: Year Four

However, I have to say, I think I am coming… Continue reading What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky

It sounded pretty interesting and really… Continue reading The Confessions of Frannie Langton
Even though this scandal happened very recently, and on a very large scale, I have to say that I ready had no awareness of it in real time. To be fair, I was in grad school on the other side of the country, so it does make sense that my general knowledge of Silicon Valley… Continue reading Bad Blood
This recently released collection of essays has been getting a lot of praise from bookstagrammers and reviewers my age. It seemed like Tolentino’s writing was doing a great job capturing the frustrating and ridiculous parts of the millennial reality and, as a millennial myself (actually, I’m the same age as Tolentino), I was super curious… Continue reading Trick Mirror
In my goal of working to read more diversely, I’m attempting to also diversify my diversity… That sounds confusing, but basically, I’m just trying to cast my reading net ever wider. So when I heard about this 2019 winner of the International Man Booker, the first novel translated from Arabic to win this prize, in… Continue reading Celestial Bodies
