I am first and foremost a booknerd — welcome to the chaos.

  • Audiobook Opinions - I was anti-audiobook for a long time. I just assumed I wouldn’t be a fan of them. That was a bold assumption for someone who had yet to actually listen to an audiobook. My mom became a fan of them so I thought, “why not?” The first series I listened to was Six of Crows […]

  • “We All Looked Up” Review - This novel is one that I picked up a year or so ago with the thought that it may have a slightly Breakfast Club-esc storyline to it. A group of teenagers at the end of the world: that is the essence of what this novel is. An asteroid is on course to hit earth and […]
  • TBH, Keeping up with a TBR is Hard - Ok, so June is almost done and I am not done with the first book on my June TBR list. First off, in my defense one of the books is A Game of Thrones, so I feel like I deserve a little bit of grace.   I decided to be very determined to finish my […]
  • My Love Letter to John Green - If nothing else, you’ve seen The Fault in Our Stars or Paper Towns, or the black and white pictures of Kaya Scodelarrio portraying the sultry and mysterious Alaska.
