My Favorite Books in 2015

As you know, I'm a bit of a book nerd, but I wanted to start this off with saying that by no means is this list comprehensive. When deciding to make a favorite list of anything, there comes the unfortunate task of elimination.  I had to weed out books that I truly...

On My Nighstand

I've been buried in good books lately, and here are some of my recent reads! Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation was a book that I picked up on a whim. Telling the stories of Josephine Baker, Tallulah Bankhead, Diana Cooper, Nancy Cunard, Zelda Fitzgerald,...

On My Nighstand: Several Recent Reads

I've been doing quite a bit of reading lately so I figured I'd lump a few books together into one post instead of overwhelming you with a heavy amount of book posts. Below are some of my recent reads. What are you reading lately? I don't know what it is, but lately...

3 Books To Read This Spring

Happy first day of Spring! If you're looking forward to lazy days at the park then we're definitely on the same page. Below are three books that are great for reading in the Spring. I was going to suggest more recent novels, but I didn't want to recommend books I...

On My Nighstand: A House In The Sky

As you know, I'm all about memoirs right now. This book, A House In The Sky, has got to be one of my favorites from the past year. A House In The Sky is about a curious Canadian who's passion for travel led her to a happenstance career as a TV reporter. Amanda...

On My Nightstand: Gone Girl & Wild

Both of these books have been the attention of recent press. I've heard so many good things about Gone Girl that I had to check it out. I first heard about Wild from the trailer of the film isn't being made in to (starring Reese Witherspoon) and the premise remind me...

On My Nighstand

Cold weather and warm blankets is the perfect reading weather. I've been making my way through books pretty quickly lately and here are two that I just finished. I admit, with a bit of embarrassment, that I've never watched more than a few episodes of Girls. But from...

On My Nightstand: Orange Is The New Black

At first I was pretty hesitant about Orange Is the New Black. The 15 minutes of the show that I had seen didn't have me hooked. While the TV show is sensationalized, the book is an honest account of a woman's time behind bars. I enjoyed Piper's way of telling her...

On My Nightstand: Gather Together In My Name

Me Before You is a story about a quadriplegic man who lost his desire to live. Louisa (Lou) is a young girl in her mid-twenties and happens up on the job as his caretaker. She takes it upon herself to show him that life is worth living. I had been passing by this book...

On My Nightstand: Brain on Fire & Mango Street

Brain on Fire is pretty awesome. I'm really into memoirs lately and this one was a good one to read after this book. Susannah's writing is easy to read and understand even when she delves into the medical jargon of her illness. She's probably one of the few who have...
