Adventures in Spain: The Airport Prelude

I took a trip to Barcelona, Spain in September. It was a last minute thing that I had only begun planning for in June when my cousin came to visit and told me about how she was going to Spain for a month. She then invited me to join her for ten days and showed… Continue reading Adventures in Spain: The Airport Prelude

The Genius Thief

I took Honor's Chem my junior year of high school. It was a horrible idea because, though I like science for the most part, chemistry has a lot of math. Math has always been my kryptonite. I took Honor's Chem because my parents had really high expectations of me and I had already let them… Continue reading The Genius Thief

I’m Really Not This Radiant

I'd been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award before, and I thought that would be the peak of my fame. It appears that we haven't learned from our past mistakes because I've been nominated again. John from the Nowhere Tribune said I write well, which is always good to hear because I have an English… Continue reading I’m Really Not This Radiant

A Stranger in Someone Else’s Home

For the first two weeks of April, I was house sitting while my cousin, her husband, and their two-year-old went to Italy. In addition to guarding the house from the onslaught of bandits my wild imagination conjured up, I had to care for two cats, a dog, several plants, and my own sanity. My cousin… Continue reading A Stranger in Someone Else’s Home

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Wings and Ruin made me take flight just before destroying me. The beginning was good. Realllll good. The pacing was excellent, Feyre was up to no good, and I was about it. Somewhere along the way, I put the book down and couldn't read. It was boring and it ruined everything. This… Continue reading A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Hazing Rituals

I once wrote about the job from hell and the human incarnation of Satan himself. Though it was a terrible place to work, it did teach me a lot. Aside from learning how to use a cash register and that some bosses make it impossible to juggle two jobs, I learned about the beautiful ritual… Continue reading Hazing Rituals

I’ve Always Been a Cat Person, but This Crosses a Line

I've never really been a dog person. It's not that I hate them, I just think they're loud and needy and their energy stresses me out. I'm a total cat person. I live for that independence and cool indifference toward my existence. Cats are graceful and don't get in the way. I rarely meet a… Continue reading I’ve Always Been a Cat Person, but This Crosses a Line

One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

To say that I was excited to read this book is an understatement. The first book in the series completely captured me in a way a lot of YA Fiction fails to. The women are strong, the fantasy element is believable, and not all of the main characters come out of every struggle completely unscathed.… Continue reading One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

I never knew I could start a love affair with a book series, but here we are, well into the honeymoon phase and I don't foresee the flame of our eternal love ever being extinguished. I didn't know a piece of my heart was missing until I was introduced to the characters in this book.… Continue reading A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I've joined a cult. I never though it would happen. I didn't think I could ever love a book enough to quit my job, move to the middle of nowhere, and blindly follow orders given to me by a suspiciously charismatic leader. I read A Court of Thorns and Roses and am willing to lay down… Continue reading A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
