“The Thousandth Floor” by Katharine McGee

What the heck even is this book? is what was going through my mind the entire time I was reading “The Thousandth Floor” by Katharine McGee. I picked up this book with zero expectations. What I got was a soap opera set 100 years in the future. And damn, did it deliver.

What I’ve Learned in the Past Month of (Not) Blogging

It’s been almost a month since I’ve written on here. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my relationship to blogging in that month. (more…)

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

I just sort of accidentally stumble upon “The Invisible Library” by Genevieve Cogman via various book recommendation sites. I had never heard of the series before, but it seemed like it would be right up my alley. I mean, on Goodreads it’s described as “The first installment of an adventure featuring stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies – think Doctor Who with librarian spies!” So, yeah, once I read that, I figured this series was for me.

Pesto Caprese Chicken

While there are times when I cook for my roommate or my boyfriend, generally speaking I make most of my meals for myself.

I’ve seen similar versions to this floating around recently, so I decided to make my own version with ingredients I already had in my kitchen. So here it is, my pesto caprese chicken. (more…)

Pizza Waffles?

My best friend and her husband have become obsessed with their waffle maker since they got one at her bridal shower, and I always get jealous of all the fancy waffle things they make.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman

At the end of last year I put a call out on Facebook for book recommendations to help me complete my goal of reading 100 books in 2017 (36 down!), and my friend sent me a really long list of books. She told me to save A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman for last because it is so good that “it will ruin you for other books.” Obviously, with a recommendation like that, I didn’t listen and read it first of all the books on her list. And, man, did it not disappoint. (more…)
