New to the List: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (A book with an unreliable narrator) This month was a little slow again, so I will make this post quick, but I did manage to read a book that has long been on my To Read list. Lolita is as bizarre as it is brilliant, and is […]Read more "2017 Reading Challenge: May"
New to the List: The Mapmaker’s War: Keeper of Tales Trilogy by Ronlyn Domingue (A bestseller from a genre you don’t normally read) So, the month of April was a little slow for me reading wise, but hey, I spent half the moon wandering around the streets of Havana. I did read The Mapmaker’s War […]Read more "2017 Reading Challenge: April"
New to the List: Exit West by Mohsin Hamid (A book that’s been published in 2017) Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter (A book with pictures) What is the What (advanced: A book about immigrants or refugees) So, this has been a pretty amazing and productive month for my reading goals.

This month has been a pretty productive month, even though it has been a busy one. I have made some amazing plans for next month and some for the rest of the year. Going to Cuba has been a dream of mine for years so I cannot wait to see what April has in store for […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: March"

This month I have read four books (and am about half-way through another). Three […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: February"
New to the List: Maus, Parts I and II by Art Spiegelman (A novel set during wartime) Ok, so I know that Maus is technically not a ‘novel’ (rather a graphic novel, but I say it counts). It is broken into two parts and it is probably one of the most heartbreaking things I have […]Read more "2017 Reading Challenge: January"
I meant to get this out before the end of January, but better late than never. The first month of this New Year seemed to fly by, and pass painfully slowly all at once. The last ten days of January have seemed a little surreal, and it is still hard to believe all that has […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: January"
Yesterday, January 21, 2017, was just the beginning. Protests and demonstrations took place in over six hundred cities around the country but also took place in cities on all seven continents around the world. The Women’s March is being called the biggest demonstration in American history. While I would have loved to have been in Washington […]Read more "Just the Beginning"
Hello, 2017 2016 was a crazy year (and I am sure that 2017 will be just as crazy), but if I have one hope for this New Year I hope that it is a more productive year. Even though I went to Europe last year, spent three months on the island of Lesvos, Greece […]Read more "Hello, 2017 (The Road Ahead)"
