Book Review | The Sun is Also a Star

Lately, I’ve been in the mood for some light, fun reads. After finishing grad school, I’m not ready to jump into some of the more dense books on my TBR. Nicola Yoon’s sophomore novel, The Sun is Also a Star was the perfect book to pick up, and I am glad I finally got around to […]

Weekly Wrap Up – January 15

It’s the second week of January, and I’m already exhausted. This was my first week being done with grad school, and I’m happy to say: I was not at all productive.

Book Review | Human Acts

In the past year or so, I have heard a lot about Han Kang. Her book, The Vegetarian, has been everywhere lately, and I’ve seen a ton of rave reviews. I have yet to read it (I plan to soon), though when I saw this one, I couldn’t resist. Human Acts is really unlike anything I’ve read before, […]
