Book Vs. Movie: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2019) (SPOILERS!)

The film adaptation of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is perfectly fine.  I know this was a well-loved film – the community blew up with enthusiasm after its release – so please don’t take any of this comparison review as bashing the film.  I genuinely believe it was perfectly fine as it was. But you know us readers. We love to compare things to the books, and often, adaptations just don’t hold up. On it’s own, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is adorable.  It’s a sweet teen chick flick and in that way, I loved it.  Lana Condor […]

It’s Too Darn Hot: The June Wrap Up

Posted July 5, 2021 in Reviews // 2 Comments

Truth?  I spent a lot of time in June hiding in our bedroom.  Why?  Because there’s an air conditioner in the bedroom and the temperature is lovely in there.  Honestly if we just moved the refrigerator up there, I’d never leave.  Well, almost never. Summer is not my favorite season.  I like it in theory and through windows, but as far as frolicking and enjoying the season? Ehhh, I’ll pass.  I get all sweaty and it’s icky.  If y’all haven’t figured it out yet, the only season I really like is autumn, and I adore autumn. But that’s alright, because you […]

  To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is such a sweet and heartwarming book.  It has its conflicts and its moments, but for the most part, my heart was so full with the slow flow of falling in love.  There’s really nothing like falling in love for the first time, a fluttering that inspires so many cliches.  To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before captures it very well. There are a lot of different relationships in this book and I find them interesting on all levels.  First of all, Lara Jean and her sisters.  There’s a different relationship between each of […]

In June, it feels like there’s soooooo much time left in the year to work towards my annual goals and stuff, but dang.  The end of the year really snuck up on me in 2018.  I was going strong with the 2018 Debut Authors Challenge, and then about halfway through the year it occurred to me that I should probably start reading the debuts exclusively until I caught up.  Then those took me right to the end of the year, with An Absolutely Remarkable Thing just squeaking by. This year, I’m not actively participating in the debut authors challenge (says the girl who’s read three […]

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

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

Posted October 29, 2018 in Checking In // 4 Comments

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. The Monthly Haul Remember last month when I only hauled two books?  Yeah, that was adorable.  The beginning of October […]
