Book Review | These Violent Delights

These violent delights have violent ends. I picked up Victoria Namkung’s These Violent Delights for two reasons: 1. the title (mostly because of Westworld, but it did originate from Shakespeare), and 2. ever since reading The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis and Hunger by Roxane Gay, I’ve been wanting to read more literature that explores the topic […]

Weekly Wrap Up – November 5

This week was incredibly exhausting. Between a crazy work week, my aunt being in town from overseas, my cat having to make two trips to the vet (she was recently diagnosed as diabetic – don’t worry, she’s doing okay), and a four-hour Saturday meeting for a freelance job that I probably should have turned down, […]
