Book Review | A River in Darkness

We’ve all heard about North Korea. I probably haven’t gone more than a week without seeing it in the news lately. But with everything else going on, I think we tend to forget what matters most: the people. I picked up A River in Darkness on a whim, and ended up gaining a lot of […]

Greek Mythology Book Tag

I didn’t have a particular post planned today. And then I came across this tag on Lost in Translation (originally created by Jasmine), and it seemed like the perfect time to do a new tag! I love mythology, particularly Greek mythology (which the Romans thought was cool enough to steal). Don’t worry, I’m not going […]
