A Subscription Box I Love | Book of the Month Club

I love the idea of book subscription boxes, but I’d been wary of subscribing to any of them for a while. Mostly because, while I do think the idea of a surprise is great, I tend to just buy books I want to read when they come out. A lot of the time, I’ve seen someone […]

2016 Reading Challenges Update #3

This year is three quarters of the way over. It’s officially fall (despite the 100-degree weather in Southern California), and soon I’ll be able to read snuggled up in a sweater with a cup of tea.

I wanted to read at least one more this year, and […]

September Reading List

I love fall, and, to me, September means fall. It’s the perfect time for curling up with tea and a book. (If only California would get the memo that summer’s over.) I love fall reading, and I’m excited to get into some great books this year! I am keeping this list relatively short because I’m going […]
