It’s cool if I just write “What I’m Reading” posts from here on out, right? Because they seem to be all I can muster the motivation to write lately. Life changes, you guys! They’re hard. I just got back to … Continue reading
Last week, I took a look at my favorite authors based on how many books I’ve read by each writer, but I also noted that numbers don’t tell the whole story when it comes to which authors I consider my … Continue reading
Hello, booklings. This week has been all over the place. I moved out of my apartment (which was stressful and all kinds of emotional), stayed with a generous friend for a few days, and I’m now visiting my family for … Continue reading
Aside from J.K. Rowling and Cheryl Strayed, Haruki Murakami is the main author I turn to when I need a comfort read. There’s something quiet and soothing about his writing. He often has his characters swim laps, evoking long, stretched-out strokes and … Continue reading
Confession time: I’m kind of obsessed with podcasts. As a reader, I love putting new information into my brain any way that I can — and podcasts allow me to do this in situations in which I can’t feasibly read a … Continue reading

Where to even start with recapping July? Last month was all over the place for me. In the first two weeks, I broke up with my boyfriend of nearly six years — and the rest of the month was a … Continue reading
Happy Monday, darlings! I just got home from a week at the lake with my family, and it was exactly what I needed. The weather was perfect, and I got in some good quality swimming, water skiing, tubing, kayaking, twilight boat rides, sunset gazing, chats with family members, and hammock reading. It was a much-needed distraction from some of the uncertainties in my life at the moment.
Remember how I said I’m terrible about overpacking books for vacations? Yeah. Of the six books I brought with me, I finished one and made it halfway through a second. To be fair, the first one was pretty long. I had a ton of fun reading The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan; it was a fantastic beach read without being too mindless. I also started Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff, which is kind of blowing me away. How can a person even write that beautifully?! Lastly, I’m still listening to The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan on audio, which I’m really enjoying!
