This is Acting by Sia

Sia’s newest album, released in January of this year, was an album I was looking forward to being released.

1000 Forms of Fear by Sia

I bet you were beginning to think I only review books. And I know that's what this page is called, but I couldn't help myself! I can't limit my judgmental nature to just print! Consider this a bonus!

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Before reading this novel, I thought I knew exactly what was going to happen in this story. I didn’t. Hollywood gets it all wrong! So, forget everything you thought you knew about Dracula!

Mrs. Dalloway takes place after World War I in England. It is the story of one day in a woman’s life told through different perspectives of several people. The story… Continue reading Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolfe


Thoughts on Social Media

Week Four Blog Post Oftentimes when I’m scrolling through my social media, I compare people’s posts to the things they say and how they act in “real life.” My conclusion: people are not themselves on the internet. If you put someone behind a screen, they become a different version of themselves. This version may be… Continue reading Thoughts on Social Media
