First Impression Friday: “The Frame Up” by Meghan Scott Molin

I chose this book as my Kindle First book of the month, and within the first two pages I was regretting it. I read through the reviews and looked at the other books available (a memoir, a "heartbreaking" literary fiction, and then a suspense novel that totally didn't look interesting, and two others that I … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Frame Up” by Meghan Scott Molin

November Wrap-Up

It's been a long time since I've done a wrap-up post, but I feel like November was spectacular enough to warrant one. So many things happened this month! Not all of them are book-related, of course, but since this has become more of a ramble about my life in general, might as well share everything, … Continue reading November Wrap-Up

Book Review: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

I read this book in a day. A single day, starting before work at 7:45, and then continuing through lunch and even a bit at the comic shop later. I devoured this book, turning pages so quickly towards the last quarter of the book that I'm surprised the book didn't burst into flames. Was it … Continue reading Book Review: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

First Impression Friday: “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman

This is another book I bought months ago and am just getting around to reading, thanks to the thesis work that previously took up all of my free time. I was going to get A Man Called Ove, but after reading the first two chapters I found that I couldn't stomach it and put it back … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman

Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

It has been a long time since I've read a book that made me want to just sit and finish it in one sitting, and in the past two weeks I've read two of them. One of them is the one in this review, A Darker Shade of Magic, and the other I'll review next … Continue reading Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

First Impression Friday: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

I think I'm a few decades late getting on this train. I read The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman while traveling to LA a few weeks back and was absolutely stunned at how amazing it was. It was one of those where I was almost tempted to skip sight-seeing just to stay inside and finish … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

Top 5 Worlds I Want to Live In

Welcome back to my first Top 5 Tuesday entry in a long time! (I know it's been a while because I can't remember the last time I participated! I blame my off-line life for getting in the way...) This week's topic, brought to you as always by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, is Top 5 Worlds … Continue reading Top 5 Worlds I Want to Live In

I’m Not Dead! (+ UPDATESSSS)

All right. I know I've been MIA for a few weeks now. (Except for that scheduled post from Wednesday, which honestly surprised me when I got a notification from WordPress that my scheduled post had been published. I'd forgotten all about it.) However, I'm back, and I've got a few exciting announcements! FIRST AND FOREMOST, I … Continue reading I’m Not Dead! (+ UPDATESSSS)

Recipe Review: Salmon & Spinach Pasta

Original recipe from this Nutrition Guide. Well, this recipe is a little different from the ones I usually do. This time, I'm not trying a recipe I found online. I started working out a few weeks ago and purchased a workout program to help me through it, and it came with a nutrition guide that … Continue reading Recipe Review: Salmon & Spinach Pasta
