Book Review: “The Frame-Up”

I'm going apologize in advance for this review, because the majority of this is going to be dissecting the main character, MG, and why she's is the worst main character I've ever read, second only to Jazz fromĀ Artemis. If you want to skip to my review of the actual story, scroll down to the last … Continue reading Book Review: “The Frame-Up”


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

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

First of all, my initial prediction thoughts seem to have been spot-on. This is a book about a dysfunctional family, and … Continue reading Book Review – “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

Book Review – “The Golem and the Jinni” by Helene Wecker

Full disclaimer: I listened to this book on an audiobook through the Libby app, powered by my local library. It took me exactly 3 weeks of an hour-plus commute to finish it. And what a ride. The story begins with the Golem in chapter one, and then switches to the point of view of the … Continue reading Book Review – “The Golem and the Jinni” by Helene Wecker

Book Review: “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah

This is the beautiful story of two sisters in World War II, as they attempt to navigate their way through a treacherous new world. I've always enjoyed reading historical fiction about World War II. Of course, as with any historical fiction, there are good ones and there are bad ones. This one happens to be … Continue reading Book Review: “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah
