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! I know I just posted a 2018 preview, […]

Posted January 23, 2018 / Books & Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Ten Books I Really Liked (Even LOVED) But Can’t Seem To Remember! I have liked and loved a lot of books in my time. But apparently, there are some that I just don’t remember. How I came up with my list today? I sorted my Goodreads “Read” shelf by rating and scrolled through it. These are […]

My Week in the Books {18}
Posted January 22, 2018 / Books & Reading

What Happened: Unexpected 5 day weekends are great! We had more winter weather down here in Alabama, so we got an extra couple of days off during our short week of school. Not gonna lie, it was nice (even if I was sick the entire time). I somehow managed to make it through my two days of work this week even though I was still sick. But this weekend it was sunny and beautiful, and […]

Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp
Posted January 20, 2018 / Book Talks

In her sophomore novel, Marieke Nijkamp once again tells a compelling story with relatable characters, this time in an Alaskan wilderness setting. Unlike her first novel where you know exactly what is going on (a high school shooting incident), Before I Let Go is steeped in mystery and intrigue. It pulls readers in from the very first chapter, and it holds their attention as the mystery of this Alaskan town unfolds. I love reading stories […]

Love, Hate, and Other Filters has been buzzed for months, so when I got approved for the digital galley I was pretty stoked! And I will just go ahead and state that this book lives up to its pre-pub buzz and then some. Yes, I said it–it is so good! Maya is a senior in high school who is thinking about her future. She has secretly applied (and been accepted!) to NYU’s film program to […]

What Happened: Happy New Year, Y’all! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks For one, the weather has been CRAZY PANTS! Up and down and all around cold. So very cold. Also, school has started in full force. But with all this cold and flu epidemics, it’s a day by day thing right now.
