This weekend, I had the immense pleasure of reading a soon-to-be-released book. One of my favorite things about book blogging is getting to read amazing books before they come out, and Sarno's Just Under the Clouds is exactly that. Always think in threes and you'll never fall, Cora's father told her when she was a … Continue reading Review – Just Under the Clouds by Melissa Sarno
Today, I am sitting in a lovely little coffeeshop between a rehearsal and a performance. I think I have spent more time, collectively, in coffee shops than anywhere else in my entire life. And I'm perfectly okay with this fact. Sitting today, I have a little time to reflect the book that I finished yesterday. … Continue reading Review – Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman
This weekend, I spent a few hours with a good book, a few cups of tea, and a warm blanket. This kind of ultimate relaxation is rare for me; I work the equivalent of two jobs and I'm usually too ADHD to sit still and read a book straight through for any length of time. … Continue reading Review – The Mothers by Brit Bennett
This weekend, I had the immense pleasure of turning 30 and then immediately throwing out my back. It was exactly as much fun as you can imagine. Lying on the couch with no WiFi for hours on end until the repairman could come out. Staring into the void and pondering life's great questions: Why are … Continue reading Review – Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

The best part of this memory is that it reminded me of the discovery of one of my favorite books I've ever read. This particular book opened my eyes to a world I … Continue reading Review – Every Day by David Levithan
I am a Christian and I love you whether you're gay, straight, bi, trans, man, woman, child, black, white, Asian, middle eastern, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, tall, short, fat, skinny, or any other discriminating feature you may have.
Li has a father and a sister who love her. A best friend, Mirabae, to share things with. She goes to school and hangs out at the beach and carefully follows the rules. She has to. Everyone she knows--her family, her teachers, her friends--is an alien. And she is the only human left on Earth.
Secrets are con artists: they trick you into letting them out. This book was not what I was expecting when I first downloaded it. The blurb that accompanied it was vague and mysterious and something about that intrigued me. Sadie loves her rocker boyfriend Henry and her running partner and best friend Lucie, but no … Continue reading Review – The Museum of Us by Tara Wilson Redd
I really, really enjoyed You Know When the Men Are Gone. I haven't read many short story collections, so this was a nice change of pace from my usual reading.
The first thing you should probably know is that Yvonne Worthington Chase was dead. Allow me to pose a hypothetical question. Totally for rhetoric's sake. That's it. Is it weird to stage book blog pictures in the middle of a busy, dimly lit coffee shop? Asking for a friend, of course. Sorry. That is totally unrelated … Continue reading Review – The Afterlife of Holly Chase
