I’M LATE, I’M LATE FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE!

I AM SO SORRY. This week has been one of the most hectic weeks of this year! As such, I haven’t been able to blog at all for the past few days. I have three papers to write, finals to study for, friend drama to deal with, family tensions, girlfriend issues, and my own emotional […]

Week Sixteen: Goals and National Poetry Month Day 15

This week is going to be busy as hell, so my goals this week aren’t going to be terribly extensive. In fact, my only goal is to finish Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. The copy I have right now is borrowed from my friend so I need to return it as soon as possible. Speaking of borrowed books, […]

Week Fifteen: Results

Yet another disappointing week, unfortunately. I haven’t had much time to do anything besides homework. I haven’t finishing Mockingjay or The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest or even A Room of One’s Own! D: Bad bookworm! Bad! However, I did finish The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne for my English class. If you read my review on Goodreads, you’ll see my comments […]

Week Fifteen: Goals AND Poetry Month Days 8 and 9 (sorry again -_-)

I AM SO SORRY. Yesterday was Easter, and in addition to a house full of annoying relatives and siblings’ dates, there were a lot of issues going on at the same time. So I apologize for not having the time to post yesterday or earlier today. I am glad to say that I am back […]

Week Fourteen: Goals & Poetry Month Day 1

Last night was not what I expected. I told you that I was going to finish A Room of One’s Own and reach the halfway point in The Girl Who Played With Fire. That was totally my plan. I made tea and curled up on my bed with my books. And then I had this huge emotional meltdown because […]

Week Thirteen: Results & Poetry Month!

To recap this week’s goals, I wanted to read Catching Fire, Old Country, A Room of One’s Own, and half of The Girl Who Played With Fire.  I finished Old Country in about an hour (since it’s only about a hundred pages). Like I said in my Goals post, the book is a dark, slightly political fairy tale. […]

Julie & Julia: An Introvert’s Friday Night Reflection

I’m watching Julie & Julia (on a Friday night alone in my dorm…) and it just makes me so happy. Not the being alone on a Friday night, the movie. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s about Julia Child (played by Meryl Streep) and a blogger named Julie Powell (played by Amy Adams) who […]

Week Twelve: Results

Play the fanfare, please! I have successfully finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson! After months of staring at the cover, I have finally reached the end! And it was AMAZING. I am completely in love with this book. I immediately ran over to my campus library to watch the Swedish version of the […]

Week 6: Goals

I BOUGHT A COPY OF THE NIGHT CIRCUS BY ERIN MORGENSTERN! I am so, so, so excited to read this! The cover art and design is completely magical; I’m in love with it already. So, my goal for this week: 1. Read The Night Circus 2. Read Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. I’m pretty sure […]

Week Five: Results (and Goals, since that post is MIA!?)

I was scrolling through my blog when it occurred to me that my Week Five: Goals post is missing! I’m sure I wrote it, but I don’t know where it ran off to! So here’s a quick summary of what I had hoped to do this week: Read Looking for Alaska by John Green. SUCCESS! I have […]
