Books to Read this July

The beginning of June feels like it was so recent, but then I recall all the books I read in June and feel astounded by how quickly time passed. Hopefully you’re enjoying the long weekend for the 4th of July. My ideal Fourth is spent with a crisp glass of rosé (or even better, a […]

I keep accidentally taking hiatuses. Not from reading, but from writing. But in the meantime, I’ve now crushed upwards of 30 books for the year. Some certainly better than others. Here are the highlights, and the ones you should pick up too. Severance – Ling Ma This is along the same vein as My Year […]

My (Excessive) Nightly Wind-Down Routine

For some of my friends, January apparently flew by. But for me, it feels like it has been dragging on for years. It’s gray and cold and gloomy. It hasn’t even snowed. If I could simply articulate my New Year’s Resolution, it would be that I pledged to take better care of myself. Maybe stop […]

2018 in Review: All My Favorites

2018 was a cool year for me. I managed to knock a few things off my bucket list, including running a whole marathon, going to Italy, and volunteering with a local organization. I read a ton of books, saw a bunch of concerts, drank all the beer in NYC, and even visited a few museums. […]

Cozy Season is Upon Us: November Recs

  November has been quite a month for me. Immediately upon the end of #SPOOKYSZN (Halloween), #COZYSZN was in full effect.

More books I read

I’ve been trying to write this since December. I guess I’ve been busy (reading) because every time I sat down to write, I ended up having to add more books. I’ve finally forced myself to sit down and bang this out, since I absolutely love recommending books, and I’ve read a TON lately. I need […]

Book recommendations for people who #GetIt

I can’t emphasize enough how much reading has helped me throughout my life. In second grade, my mom gave me a book about multiplication because I was not grasping it in the classroom. In high school, she would buy me boxed set after boxed set because she always noticed how reading calmed me down. I […]
