MFA: Year 1

The school year is over and I am a year and a half away from earning my MFA in Creative Writing. I can’t believe how quickly time flew! And it’s weird, because I had so many doubts when I decided to apply to different MFA programs. But I can honestly say that this past year […]

Paper Towns: Review

This book almost, almost made me fall out of love with John Green. It took nearly a month for me to finish reading it, partly because I was busy with the end of the school year. But if I’m honest with myself, I didn’t really care about Quentin, Margo or his friends. Luckily, my views changed […]

My Literary Heroes #2: John Green

“My Literary Heroes” is a series that will focus on the people who influenced my reading and writing habits.

I’ll probably watch Once Upon A Time In the West or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid after writing this review. Thank you Erin Bowman for giving the YA genre a much needed Western. I know there were two other YA Western novels written this year, one of which I’ve already read and enjoyed. The other is […]

I was a Harry Potter late comer!

I’ve read all of the HP books and watched all of the movies. I joined Pottermore and was sorted into Hufflepuff. I WILL make it to the Wonderful Wizarding World before I leave this Earth! And I plan on rereading the entire series sometime in the near future. I won’t pretend I know everything about […]

Everything Leads to You: Review

Hello! Welcome to my first book review! Woot Woot! If you read my YA Quarterly unboxing post, then you have already seen this book: And if you remember, this book was selected because it deals with friendship. At first, I thought the main friendship was between Emi, the main character, and her best friend, Charlotte. […]
