My OTP Narrator/Book Matches

My OTP Narrator/Book Matches

I am a HUGE audiobook listener – more than 2/3 of my reading the last two years has been via audiobooks.  So color me surprised when I went to review my “read by” section of my review archive, only to discover that I’ve only listened to a handful of narrators a couple times.  This post was supposed to be about ten amazing narrators, but instead, I’m giving you something else. One of the audiobook pain points that came up for the post a couple weeks ago was that a bad narrator ruins a book.  I am 100% on board with this […]

Jingle Bells, Batman Smells, This Is My December Wrap Up!

Jingle Bells, Batman Smells, This Is My December Wrap Up!

Happy December, loves.

So Long to Apple Cider & Autumn Leaves: The October Wrap Up

So Long to Apple Cider & Autumn Leaves: The October Wrap Up

October is my favorite month of the year.  Between the spooky Halloween aesthetics, nutmeg and clove in the air, and beautiful leaves… it’s the most gorgeous month of the year in New England.  Add in the fact that it’s no longer 90-degrees with 100% humidity and that my birthday is in October, this is just generally a good month.  And while I’m sad to see it go, I’m excited to see what November will bring. Without further ado, I present: October. Remember last month when I only hauled two books?  Yeah, that was adorable.  The beginning of October typical means a […]

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

My initial impression of The Princess Diarist is that while Carrie Fisher was not ungrateful for her life and the opportunities she had, she would have been so much happier if her place had been a bit more out of the spotlight. I think that’s fair.  We have such high expectations of celebrities to be these energetic, philosophical, kind people that sometimes we forget they are human.  And humans come in all different shapes and sizes.  Personally, I can’t imagine my entire life being defined by something I did when I was 19. Don’t go into this book looking for an […]
