Posted December 6, 2017 / Book Talks

I have really gotten into listening to mystery/thriller series on audio. They are a really engaging way to spruce up my cleaning/commuting/dog walking time. So when I heard that they were making Mr. Mercedes into a TV series, I decided it was time to finally finish the series. So I did–in about two weeks! 🙂 So here are short reviews of each of these books (without spoilers). Enjoy! I listened to this book for the […]

What Happened: This week was a “get back in the swing of things” week. After a lovely week-long Thanksgiving break, I had to figure out what my plans were for this month. And let me tell you, there are a lot! I got a lot of planning done for this upcoming week which I can’t wait to share with you! I also created a school library Instagram (follow us @tarranthslibrary) and started using social media […]

Posted December 3, 2017 / Book Talks, Books & Reading

Reading Round-Up is an end of the month recap of my reading life, including books read, reading stats, and reading challenge updates! It’s just an easy way for me to track my reading life! November felt, overall, like a month of rejuvenation for me. I got some much needed rest, some much needed mental health recovery, and some much needed reading time. I am going to keep up this rest and recovery through December, in […]

Monthly Stack is a new monthly feature where I will share some of the new month’s releases I am looking forward to the most.

Posted November 28, 2017 / Movies & TV & Music

What I’m Watching is feature where I spotlight what I have been watching recently. Whether it be Movies, Television, or Documentaries, this is a space where I will feature what I have become obsessed with or what I just didn’t like at all! Television and Film are a major part of my life, too, and I just want them to be represented on my blog as well! My movie watching has slowed down quite a […]

What Happened: I had the entire week of Thanksgiving off. And I took the entire week off. I had a couple of chill days where I read a lot. I had a day of running errands and cleaning the apartment. I spent a few days at my parents house for Thanksgiving. I played games. I watched football. I enjoyed the fall weather. It was a lovely break from real life. But tomorrow it is back […]

What Happened: I HAVE MADE IT TO THANKSGIVING BREAK! Y’all, I really don’t think I have needed a break from school as much as I do this week. This week was accreditation for the school, so things were just a little extra hectic. But we survived. And to end out the week, I created a life-size Candyland board on International Game Day. The kids came in all day and played! It was so great to […]

How could I not be excited? Priyanka lives with her mother in the United States. She is really close to her “Uncle” Jatin. But when she finds out that Uncle Jatin and his wife are pregnant with their own child, Priyanka begins to […]
