Hello everyone! Happy Sunday!

Due to my disappointing lack of time right now, I’ve decided to only do the Sunday Post every two weeks because otherwise my entire blog would just be the Sunday Post, haha!

I’ve definitely not been as active as I’d like to be on here but I just haven’t had enough time to work on posts recently. I’m usually working on posts everyday but this week I really only had a chance to post two, both of which I had spent a good week on already beforehand so I feel a little bit like I’ve been neglecting my blog and you guys. Thankfully, I think I’m back for a while and hope to not have to leave again too soon. Continue reading

“We tell people to follow their dreams, but you can only dream of what you can imagine, and, depending on where you come from, your imagination can be quite limited.”

I was super excited when I finally saw this in a bookstore as I’m a huge fan of Trevor Noah and I was really interested in learning more about his South African heritage as apartheid isn’t something I knew very much about. Going into this book I expected to laugh a lot and to learn a lot and let me tell you: I was not disappointed. Continue reading

Good morning, good night or somewhere in between! I hope this past week was a good one for all of you and that the one coming is starting out well.

What have I been up to?
This week I finally got a chance to sit down and finish Born A Crime by Trevor Noah and I’ll be posting my review in a few days because it’s impossible for me to hold onto it any longer. It was SO GOOD! Continue reading

The Sunday Post #1

Created by the caffeinatedbookreviewer, The Sunday Post is a weekly meme to catch up and chat about the previous and upcoming week.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to make this blog more personal and I really like this meme as it lets me chat to you guys and fill you in on why I may be MIA throughout the week, instead of discussing books and book related things!  Continue reading

(Some of) My Favorite Children’s Books

If I start looking at one book from my childhood, I can’t stop. If you can make it through this entire post, I applaud you. I had to seriously control myself while writing this one because I wanted to include every single book that I still cherish from my childhood. While not all of them made it in here, this is a pretty comprehensive list. I’ve highlighted a handful just because.
