July Reads, Part 1

WOW HI HOW IS JULY HALFWAY OVER??? The end of this second week came up so fast, though that was probably because I was in California for most of it. I went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and I cried. A lot. I also read absolutely no books while I was there, but […]

O.W.L.s Late Readathon TBR

I know what you’re thinking–um, weren’t the O.W.L.s three months ago in April? YES. But I missed sitting for them for whatever reason (I honestly can’t remember if I even had a good reason because I was so interested in everyone’s TBRs), and so I’ve decided to sit them in the last two weeks of […]

27 Hours by Tristina Wright: YIKES

A few housekeeping things before we begin: I’ve been teaching yoga since July 2016. I’ve been practicing yoga AND Tibetan Buddhism since December 2011. I am […]

Monday Musings: To TBR or Not to TBR

That is the question! Welcome to Monday Musings, a series where I review books that I read pre-end of 2017, when I started writing wrap-ups, talk about characters or topics that aren’t as relevant, or sometimes a surprise non-bookish thing. This week, we’re chatting about something I see literally every day–people making TBRs for the […]
