Book Review | The Adulterants

One of my goals this year was to read more books that are lesser known. I don’t always read the books that are surrounded by a lot of hype. But there are so many books out there the might be something amazing and we’re all missing out because no one’s talking about them. The cover […]

Book Review | A Gentleman in Moscow

I know I’m late to the party on this one, but that’s okay, because I finally read it! It’s not like I’ve had A Gentleman in Moscow on my shelves (more like somewhere in a giant pile of books) since it came out and had it recommended to me personally twice. Definitely not. I should […]
