Summer Reading List (and beyond)

Summer Reading List (and beyond)

Note: WordPress glitched and I published a half-done version of this post! Hence the re-publishing. Woops. I’ve learned from my Fall Reading List and Spring Reading List that setting myself up to read a set of pre-determined books for three months is one of the […]

When you couldn’t be bothered to fix your old “About Me”

I wrote an “About Me” sometime in 2011 when I began this WordPress blog, and then never bothered after that. I left it up so long I finally added “from 2011” at the top to explain anything that felt out of date, and another time made a […]

Dear author, I will read anything you write.

I didn’t mean it to be, but I ignored this draft long enough it’s now perfect for The Broke and The Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday weekly linkup, this week’s being top ten favorite authors!. Except I only have a top six. Forgive me? I’ve considered the […]

Books, Lately [April]

Welcome to Quick Lit! This is where I partake in Modern Mrs. Darcy’s link-up and share short (sometimes) and sweet (cavities not included) reviews of what I’ve been reading lately. I realize that this is about where I say things about the month’s books that are basically some […]

#bookwormproblems [one]

Being a bookworm has never been something I’ve minded. How could I? I loved reading too much to care if I was teased for it, and I really wasn’t. (Unless I blocked it out. This is always an unnerving idea.) I did get in trouble […]

Quick Lit [March]

Welcome to Quick Lit! This is where I partake in Modern Mrs. Darcy’s link-up and share short (sometimes) and sweet (cavities not included) reviews of what I’ve been reading lately.After 10-book-January, I really wasnt suprised to hit a lull month right away. I am a little bit perplexed […]

Top (Thirteen) Tuesday: Spring Reading

Every Tuesday, The Broke and the Bookish hosts a top ten linkup, and this week’s is “Top Ten Books On Your Spring TBR List.” But rules are hard, so mine has 13. NONFICTION NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL Lena Dunham >>> I’m reading this because it’s trendy. No […]

That weekend, tho. (Tales of the very specifically Chicagoan version of an Irish holiday.)

That weekend, tho. (Tales of the very specifically Chicagoan version of an Irish holiday.)

So apparently when they turn the river green for St. Patrick’s Day, it’s actually pretty cool. I expected to be underwhelmed, but the only disappointment was the devatating lack of sun. People, if it’s going to be nine AM and it’s still March, just wear […]

Life, Currently // Two

Time //  Lunch break on a Thursday. I don’t normally work in the office Thursdays, but the infamous Kristi Joy is visiting this weekend (AKA getting here at an ungodly early hour tomorrow morning), and so this is one of the times when my flexible work schedule […]

Learning styles (and challenging my own with audiobooks)

This is more-or-less part of my slow-updating Newly-Minted Adult series. Technically it’s just another way for me to talk about books, but it still counts. It does! I am not an auditory learner. Not even in the slightest. I used to feel lacking, or lazy, or […]
