Book Review: Paper Towns by John Green

I’m going to be real with you, Paper Towns is not my favorite book. I’ve read it two and a half times (half because I started reading it to my partner in Spring but just kind of lost steam and never finished it) and I just don’t love it. I will say that having readContinue reading “Book Review: Paper Towns by John Green”

Book Review: Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis

If you’re reading a YA novel, you’re probably looking for an emotional journey. That’s one of the conventions of the genre. It’s easily the best convention of the genre. If you’re reading a YA novel about sick kids, you’re probably looking for an emotional journey that will obliterate you and crush your heart into aContinue reading “Book Review: Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis”

My List of Safe Movies

A friend of mine asked me for recommendations on “safe” movies, and as I began to compile this list, I thought that other people might like it, too. The movies here are all low-action, safe-feeling, and romantic comedies. There’s no horror, gore, intense action, etc. When I find a good, safe movie that feels likeContinue reading “My List of Safe Movies”

Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup

This is one of my favorite, go-to recipes. I’ve been branching out and trying new soup recipes lately, but for a few years I pretty much just made this every couple of weeks through fall and winter- and no other soups. I looked around for a slow cooker loaded potato soup recipe but I neverContinue reading “Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup”

Book Review: Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

I have to start this review by saying that this one is a bit lighter-hearted that the previous two books I’ve reviewed- Unstoppable Moses and Everything, Everything both tackle some bigger issues than this novel. That is not to say, necessarily, that it is less profound. Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List is the storyContinue reading “Book Review: Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan”

Fall Book Recommendations

It’s fall, y’all! I think I’ve said that about 37 times in my recent instagram posts, but oh well. Maybe you folks will learn to love it. Is it too ambitious to call this post “Fall Book Recommendations 2020” ? I’m hopeful I’ll have another version next year. Below is a small selection of booksContinue reading “Fall Book Recommendations”

Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

This book came to me highly recommended by a friend (and generously gifted by my grandmother, who buys me books every year for Christmas. She’s the real MVP.) and of course that set my expectations high. I found this book somewhere on a list of books similar to The Fault In Our Stars, which isContinue reading “Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon”
