Everything You Never Knew You Wanted To Know: A Bookish Q&A

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted To Know: A Bookish Q&A

Hey Bookworms! What’s this? Why it’s a survey about books! Why am I doing this? I may or may not be slightly behind in my reading. Plus, I like to change things up from time to time. So, I’d like to thank Rory at Fourth Street Review for inspiring Sarah of Sarah Says Read to complete this survey… I’d also like to thank Sarah for posting it so that I’d… Read more »

The Trip of Several Lifetimes (I'm Guest Posting!!!)

Hey there, Bookworms! I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Katie doesn’t usually post on Wednesdays.” You’re correct. However. Kelly, who writes the CERTIFIED AWESOME BLOG, The Well-Read Redhead asked me to guest post for her while she’s on vacation. True to form, I came up with something completely ridiculous. It’s also quite fun, if I do say so myself. I may or may not have booked an imaginary vacation… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday TRAVELS!

Top Ten Tuesday TRAVELS!

G’Day Bookworms! It’s time for another edition of Top Ten Tuesday with The Broke and the Bookish! Today’s topic features books with a travel element. This should be fun. Shall we? 1.Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple. This book rocked for a number of reasons. Quippy sarcasm, ridiculous situations, clever forays into the seedy underbelly of suburbia. My absolute favorite part of this novel? The trip to Antarctica. What… Read more »

We Might As Well Be Walking on The Sun: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

Hola Bookworms, The other day I reviewed The Maze Runner by James Dashner and I was all WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! So of course, I continued the series and just finished The Scorch Trials. Here’s the deal y’all. It’s kind of impossible not to spoiler the heck out of The Maze Runner and still review The Scorch Trials, so if you want to read them and know nothing, then stop reading this review right… Read more »

Beware the Ides of March: A Letter to My "Nephew" on his Fifth Birthday

Dear Jack, The first letter I ever wrote to you, I addressed to “Fetus.” You see, you were just a little ball of cells multiplying in your mommy’s tummy. Like most of the very best presents, you came as a surprise, but it didn’t take long for the excitement to set in. I started buying you penguin pajamas before you were even born! I talked to your mom a few… Read more »
