I had the perfect book for my trip thanks to the kind folks at Harper Collins who sent this to me!

Hello there, everyone! January is off to a great start for me. I spent last week in Colorado with my family and this week I returned home to news that I have fulfilled my requirements for a BA in humanities – no more studying for this girl! (Well, for now, anyway…). Read More »


Reflections & Hopes at the New Year

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Hi Everyone! I disappeared for a while because of finals and an overwhelmingly busy holiday schedule, but I’m on vacation this week and jumping on some downtime to catch up here on the blog. I had an exciting 2017 making new friends over on Bookstagram, hosted some readalongs throughout the year, receiving many wonderful books from publishers and friends, as well as lots of delicious tea to try, enjoyed a screening of the Victoria & Abdul film, and guest blogging over at Half Price Books! If you haven’t seen my blog post yet, please hop on over, say hi, and tell me your favorite book + drink pairing!Read More »

It’s wrapped around my wrist as a bracelet in the above photo, but you can see it on if you scroll down. The one I’m wearing is Floral Orange and I have another in Aqua Floral, which you can see below.Read More »

Over the weekend I wrapped up the month-long reading of Wives & Daughters with the loveliest group of readers on Instagram. It was such a pleasure to immerse myself in Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel again, savoring her portrayals of rural nineteenth century life in England. It’s a sweet novel and a most wonderful escape from the busy and complicated modern life. Read More »
