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 […]

Book Review | Heart Berries

Recently, I realized that the vast majority of memoirs I read are by celebrities (medical memoirs come in second). Which isn’t a bad thing – it’s something I really enjoy. They’re usually a great combination of both deep and funny. However, I did want to explore a memoir by someone I hadn’t already heard of. […]

Book Review | This Will Only Hurt a Little

I have been a fan of Busy Philipps since Freaks and Geeks. No, I didn’t watch the show in 1999 (I was ten). But I did start watching it maybe six years after it aired. I’ve even owned the DVD by the time I graduated high school. And when I saw that Victoria Schwab enjoyed Busy Philipps’s […]

When I found out it was a book, I immediately […]

One that kept popping up was a fairly recent publication, The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. I was intrigued by the idea of combining true […]

Book Review | Educated

Tara Westover’s Educated caught my eye the moment I saw the cover. I loved the idea of a memoir centered around education and what education means, especially since it’s played such a huge role in my own life. This book is not at all what I was expecting, but it was far better than I could […]

Book Review | This is Going to Hurt

Every so often, being a book blogger pays off. In this case, I found out about Adam Kay’s memoir, This is Going to Hurt from a blogger friend and a reader in the UK. I don’t believe this book was published in the US, and I don’t think I would have found out about it otherwise […]
