Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson & Death by Black Hole by Neil DeGrasse Tyson I absolutely love this book, which is a collection of short essays, blog posts, and all of them are about her fight against depression. I love reading stories about mental health that showcase that it doesn't have to hold you back and you don't have to let it destroy you, or keep you living life to…

The reads this time were: The End of Your Life Bookclub by Will Schwalbe &  My Love Story (Ore Monogatari) by Kazune Kawahara I've had this on my reading list forever! It's a memoir about a son who accompanies his mother to her chemo therapy. They talk mainly about books during this time. The book talks a lot about his mother and how she lived her life to the fullest.…

The read this time was: The Real Doctor will See you Now by Matt McCarthy I received this book for free from Blogging for Books, all opinions are my own. I like to read non-fiction from time to time, I have friends in med school, and the cover caught my attention with it's minimal flair. All these reasons went into me picking up this book, also, I'm not a big…

The reads this time were: Akatsuki no Yona 17 by Mizuho Kusanagi & The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel I realized that while I read a lot of manga, I actually never review/talk about it on here at all, yet I do still read it and count it towards my total of books read for the year. So, I figured I might as well start talking about it now!…

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Durgess  & Unabrow by Una LaMarche I've had A Clockwork Orange on my list for quite a while, since I wanted to read some more banned books. For starters, I have never seen the movie, nor do I know anyone who has read the book or seen the movie. In other words, I had no prior knowledge of what I was getting into...and oh boy,…

I haven't found it yet....but, I have read some books!! This time I read:  My Journey to the Ocean by Lena Mikado I love reading books from upcoming authors! I have friends that give me…

Pretty different, as per usual!  Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger & The Unholy Murder of Ash Wednesday by Dominick D. DiPaolo & Jeff Pinski This book was The NovelTea Book Club book for September! Due to some delays from Amazon, it came a little late into the month so I started reading it way…

This time I had the pleasure of visiting two very different time periods in my readings. Like the boyfriend said before, I certainly love reading very different books and always picking complete opposites to review at the same time! So without further ado, my reads this time were: Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen & Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman I am actually quite embarrassed with myself…

This time I read: Cat Sense by John Bradshaw & Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling I feel like after completing this book, I could successfully run off into the wild and become a cat myself, living freely among them, as my people. Not really, but a girl can dream right? In all seriousness, this book isn't light reading. It has a very scientific text feel to…

For breakfast today I ignored the oatmeal, once again, and instead settled for yet more cereal...along with some super fast reads! Bossypants by Tina Fey & Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot  I was really excited to read Bossypants, probably because I think Tina Fey is awesome! The book was a fast read, but wasn't quite as LOL funny as I expected, though I did go into…
