Hello! If you follow me on Instagram, then you'll know that I've recently finished Maggie Stiefvater's new book All The Crooked Saints. This book focuses on the miracle granting Saint of Bicho Raro and the Soria family, the pilgrims that they aren't allowed to help, and the acceptance of one's true self.

Can we talk about Crooked Kingdom for a minute?

Ok so I meant to post this about a month ago but apparently my computer didn’t save what I had written (which is so sad because I had basically written another novel about how much I love this novel). But that might be a good thing because now I’ll only take maybe 1000000 words? (I… Continue reading Can we talk about Crooked Kingdom for a minute?

Review: A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

I find that whenever I revisit authors that I read in high school, I get a very different feel and view of the book. For Hemingway, that didn’t really change. I read An Old Man and The Sea in grade 11 or 12, and I remember thinking ‘wow, this guy doesn’t really care about punctuation’.… Continue reading Review: A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

Review: If On a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino

I have vivid memories of having this book recommended to me in junior high by my English teacher. He said it was one of the only books he had ever read that was written in second person, and that I had to try it out. And so I called up my mom, we drove to… Continue reading Review: If On a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino
