THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern | Review

"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not." And if that's not enough to intrigue you, then let me continue. Not only is the circus full of amazing performers and spectacles, it is also the arena for a mysterious competition between two magicians, Marcus and … Continue reading THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern | Review

December 2017 Book of the Month: FATES AND FURIES by Lauren Groff

Romances are so much less interesting than books about marriage. And that's a cynical way to look at marriage, I know, insinuating that marriage and romance occur separately. But there's a reason classic romances often stop at the wedding. It's because from the moment the two parties say "I do," the story changes completely. Lauren … Continue reading December 2017 Book of the Month: FATES AND FURIES by Lauren Groff

November 2017 Book of the Month: SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo

This is incredibly late and I have not posted in a while, mostly from a lack of creativity and busy-ness due to the nightmare that is holiday retail. But I'm still reading, of course - because how else would I stay sane amidst the insanity? So. I have a new favorite book, everyone. It's Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. … Continue reading November 2017 Book of the Month: SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo

October 2017 Book of the Month: A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab

I don't know what it is with books about magic, but there's something about them that pull me in and make me feel at home in them. There's something about a fantasy world that can take your breath away in a way that not even the most beautiful of landscapes here on earth can. And … Continue reading October 2017 Book of the Month: A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab

August 2017 Book of the Month: ANNIHILATION by Jeff Vandermeer

I need to stop picking up the first books of series because I get sucked in and can't possibly read any of the other 9,000 books on my "to-read" shelf until I've finished the whole series. And Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer (the first book in his Southern Reach trilogy) definitely sucked . . . me in, that … Continue reading August 2017 Book of the Month: ANNIHILATION by Jeff Vandermeer

July 2017 Book of the Month: ONE MORE THING by B.J. Novak

I. loved. this. book. K bye. . . . . . . Just kidding. I'll review it I guess. Though I've noticed it's almost harder for me to talk about the books I absolutely loved than the ones that were horrible, or even just ok. So, in B.J. Novak's style, I'll keep it short and … Continue reading July 2017 Book of the Month: ONE MORE THING by B.J. Novak

June 2017 Book of the Month: Yeah, I Read Teen Fiction Again and Freaking Loved It

So stop giving me shit. (Really no one is giving me shit, but for some reason I think it's embarrassing to read teen fiction when you're, you know, not a teen anymore, even though it definitely shouldn't be). The book, or books, I am talking about are A Court of Thorns and Roses, A Court of Mist … Continue reading June 2017 Book of the Month: Yeah, I Read Teen Fiction Again and Freaking Loved It

May 2017 Book of the Month: FURIOUSLY HAPPY by Jenny Lawson

Jenny Lawson has a voice like no other, and if you're looking for both laughs and some serious introspection about your own mental health, Furiously Happy is not going to disappoint. I stumbled across this book at a good time. What on earth that means, I guess I don't know, as I probably would have enjoyed this equally … Continue reading May 2017 Book of the Month: FURIOUSLY HAPPY by Jenny Lawson
