Book Review | Little Weirds

You might know Jenny Slate from Parks & Rec, The Secret Life of Pets, or Obvious Child. Which is exactly how I knew her (seriously, I hear her voice and a fluffy little white dog pops into my head, I can’t help it). But I am so glad I decided to pick up her book, […]

Audiobook of the Month | October

I really enjoy listening to nonfiction as audiobooks. They’re easier to get through for me, probably because they force me to slow down and pay more attention – which is kind of important if you want to retain information. This month, I decided to listen to a memoir that has been on my TBR for […]

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 […]
