Welcome back to First Impression Friday! This week, we're going with something non-fiction, Cry of the Kalahari. All the credit for this one belongs to my boyfriend, Steven. He described it as "these crazy scientists go out to the Kalahari desert by themselves and end up living with the lions and other animals." He explained that … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Cry of the Kalahari” by Mark & Delia Owens
Here we go again with a book tag on a Thursday! This week's book tag was found on Kristen Kraves Books, and I knew it would be super fun to go through. 1-What was the last book you DNF? I wrote about this on Monday, but it's Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the … Continue reading Last 10 Books Tag

A few weeks ago I had a great coupon for ThriftBooks and decided I needed to use it. I ended up … Continue reading First DNF of the Year
Woman World started out as a webcomic on Instagram. I'm not 100% sure how I found it in the first place, but I followed it from almost the beginning (if not the beginning). When I found out Aminder was publishing it as a graphic novel, I pre-ordered it the second it was available. It's everything I'd hoped … Continue reading Book Review: “Woman World” by Aminder Dhaliwal
This is the only podcast on my list (so far) that's actually complete, so you can jump right in at the beginning (which you should be doing anyway, since it's a serialized fiction podcast) without the fear of being left too far behind. This is another Night Vale Presents podcast, and the first one after … Continue reading Podcasts: Alice Isn’t Dead
