Hue’s Mini-Review: Her Pretty Face

While a good read, and thrilling in some parts, the story’s predictable. If you couldn’t figure out who’s who in the first third, may I suggest more thrillers in your life? Pros 1.

The Hardest Game of ‘Would You Rather’ for Book Nerds

Thanks to Buzzfeed and Kristen kristenkravesbooks.com, I’m taking a half an hour break and taking the challenge! Let’s see if I break. 1. Would you rather have a friend who loses your books, or one who dog-ears them? I do not lend books. If I give a book, it’s a gift. Books cost a lot and the thought […]

July Reading Wrap!

Hello! Hello! Hello! New month. New TBR. Yet, I cannot forget the lovely TBR I enjoyed in July. Summer’s a touchy topic when it comes to reading for me. I tend to slump often because of the heat, outside activities, my children’s daily presence at home, instead of school, and other summery moments snatching attention. […]

Songs of Porcelain: “Delicious Surprise”

Hello, Everyone! Every Monday, for a while, I will highlight songs that inspire my work in progress (WIP), Porcelain.

Not everyone can listen to music as they type […]
