Why I Picked It Up?: When I found out that this was a running book, I knew I wanted to read it. I have been obsessed with running books, and I wanted to read a novel centered around running and training. Yay! Thoughts: I am calling this a “mini review” because this review will be quick, as I have waited too long to write this review to be able to fully recall everything I thought […]

Why I Picked It Up?: I had to pick a realistic novel to read for my YA class, and I have always wanted to read this one, so I decided now was a good time!

Confessions From the Library: Too Much NEW!

Confessions From the Library: Too Much NEW!
Posted September 7, 2014 / 7 Comments

Have you ever found yourself completely and utterly overwhelmed and overstimulated by new stories? I have a confession: I am a perpetual re-reader. Or I was before I started a book blog. When I found a book I love, I would put it on my mental reading docket. And, without fail, I would read it every 1.5-2 years, like clockwork. I have done this since elementary school, and continued to do it all through undergrad. […]

These letters express her feelings when […]
