fuck yes, and other declarations

A list. Should I list? I will. Current 2020 book read count: 58. Books currently in progress: 2. Can I make it to 60 before the year is out? Fuck yes.

to be read

There are some amazing books being released right now and I’m so excited. There are periods throughout the year (usually the spring/summer) when book releases are absolutely dreadful. (Dear publishers, stop trying to make “beach reads” a thing.) Anyway, here are a few that I’m totally stoked for. “Between life and death there is a […]

book covers

I’ve been feeling pretty uninspired lately. I’m busy with school and busy with… my other school. I was looking at a stack of my books and thought I’d post about some of the book covers that I really love.


I’ve been (extremely slowly) reading No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work and I’ve just finished the chapter on motivation. It felt really relevant for me at the moment, especially in light of how Covid-era realities have hit people and colored their daily experiences at work.

ten books about unrequited love

A new series! My ten picks for various literary categories. First up: unrequited love. That sweet and heartbreaking feeling has been a staple trope of literature for centuries. Will it ever get tired? As long as it feels so good to see Anne Eliot and Frederick wonder if it’s too late (Persuasion), Gatsby to repeatedly […]

recent addition, vol 4

Extremely important and exciting new edition of Slaughterhouse-Five has been released and I pre-ordered it and it was just delivered and I’m beside myself. I’m extremely excited to get started reading this. I’ve flipped through and the images are awesome. This is a MUST-HAVE for any Vonnegut lover. Go, go now! To the bookstore!

She doesn’t know how she knew. She’s felt it. She didn’t want it, but there she is. And she understands. But she’d like […]

whatever, history.

I was watching a show on the TV and, while this show simultaneously irks me and gives me all the tummy tingles, one of the characters gave one of the better quotes I’ve heard about history: “Whatever, history – you happened already. Let it go.” Thunderous. Applause.

no hard feelings: the secret power of embracing feelings at work

Anyone who knows me knows that I feel big feelings. Big, big feelings. Big excited feelings, big angry feelings, big frustrated feelings, big silly feelings. I try to put my feelings on a diet, so that they’re not so gigantic, and I feel like I succeed about 75% of the time. You may be thinking […]

when you’re better at reading than math

So apparently I’ve read 50 books so far this year. Which means I met my 2020 goal for number of books read. I didn’t realize I had done it until today, 11 days after finishing my 50th book. I can’t add, I guess.
