August, 2017

How is it actually September, folks?! The past month has been a month of hard work- taking on as many shifts as possible, with about three days off in the whole month. While I feel like I’m just about ready to topple over with tiredness, and perhaps snooze for a month, I’m so blessed to…

Hello Lovely Humans! As someone who loves books, I’ve experienced that gut-wrenching feeling of uncertainty- that feeling of being lost and swimming in a sea of endless books in which you’re quickly sinking.

BOOK REVIEW: Not Working, by Lisa Owens

   Reading Challenge: 32/40 “Here, you should read this,” says Chris, with a cheeky eyebrow raise.

Twenty Five things about Me

Reading Challenge, 2017

Helllloooooo Internet People! I hope you’re feeling lovely and wonderful this August afternoon. My boyfriend and I aren’t the most competitive people, but every year, we set ourselves a  “Reading Challenge”.

My Reading Challenge 2016

Oh hey Internet Peoples! I hope you’re all as beautiful and gorgeous as EVER! Reading books is a very different experience for different people. For some, it’s a way of learning- a necessity for classes, for exams, to learn a new skill. We absorb the words, so we can either blurt them back out through…
