Getting into astrology has been one of my 2021 pet projects with my bestie and we found out I have notable Gemini placements so you know I had to get a book about it! I ordered this from People Get Ready and it’s super cute – practically pocket size! This book is for the third […]

It’s my first poetry book review of 2021! I wish I could say I’ve read more since but alas. Initially I picked this collection up for its take on race, gender, and identity in Chicago. The collection actually expanded further but our poet, Eve L. Ewing, definitely has a way with words. There were so […]

It’s official, I’m a ‘Big Girl’ book blogger! You’d think blogging for three years specifically would make me feel like I’ve reached a milestone but nope. I’ve hemmed and hawed about sponsorships and affiliation programs for a little while now. The truth of the matter is I wanted to be truly ready to commit to […]

Lowkey March was a great reading month. I read six books including my most anticipated read of 2020 (the library was late…really, really late). Well Played was well worth the wait and I should have just bought it. I can’t wait for Well Matched! Anyway, it’s crunch time for my trimester unhaul project with three […]

Who said she was going to read a bunch in February? 🙋🏼‍♀️ And who hasn’t read a damn thing from her WWW | February post? 🙋🏼‍♀️ But who at least managed to read a little? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Spoiler alert: February was a bit of a mess. I had all these fantastic plans for posts and for […]

This was hands down one of my favorite books of 2020! This is a nonfiction book about the Blizzard of 1888 in the United States. We learn about the storm from its inception and the various people it affected across the country to how the society attempted to recover by making changes for future storms. […]

It has been a hot minute since I’ve done one of these, which is a shame since they are one of my favorite posts to do. I feel like December and January were a bit of a reading slog mainly because everything I read seemed to take an unnecessary amount of time. But I finally […]

There’s a secret to King’s Cross Station’s Platform 13 in London that once was common knowledge: it’s a portal to a magical island. This is an island where humans, mermaids, hags, and other creatures once lived peacefully when the dwellers of our world used to visit. But like all portals, it must open and close […]
