Book Review: Hag-Seed

I enjoy Shakespeare, especially retelling of Shakespeare. After all the Bard wrote for the people, and I like to think he’d appreciate his stories still being adapted to this day. So when I saw Hag-Seed, a retelling of The Tempest by Margret Atwood, was available for review, I reserved my copy. I’m

Try ALL The Pens!

Have I mentioned how hyper-focus can be weird? If not, hyper-focus can be weird. It can cause you to really focus on something that doesn’t really matter. Most recently, I hyper-focused on pens. Pens weren’t really something I gave a ton of thought to before this. I’ve always been a big fan

New Month Resolutions

I realize this post is three weeks too late, but this year I’ve decided not to do New Year’s resolutions. Like most people, my good intentions fall away come the spring and I’m lucky if I even remember what they were by summer. Long term goals have never been my strong suit,

Book Review: Beyond Surrender

It’s always bittersweet when one of your favorite series ends. And with Beyond Surrender, I’m there with my favorite romance series. Even though the women who write as Kit Rocha are going to continue stories in this universe, leaving these characters is the kind of bummer we’re all used to. That being

2016: A Reminder to Live

2016 was a rough year as far as celebrity deaths go. We started in January with David Bowie’s death right after his latest album Blackstar. And most recently we lost Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds this week. Not only did 2016 seem like it took more of our stars, it also seemed

Rory is a Millennial Cautionary Tale (Spoilers)

I’m going to work under the assumption anyone who wanted to watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life has already done so. If you don’t fall into that group, and care about spoilers, you should stop reading now. I should also point out I have a different relationship with this show

Goodbye Pebble

As of December 7th, Pebble is officially no more. Their intellectual property was purchased by FitBit, who won’t be issuing any updates for the Pebble ecosystem. I love my Pebble Time Round. It isn’t a “smart watch for women,” but in my mind it’s the only smartwatch truly designed with women in

Why I Love the Library

The internet is full of people who get mad over the silliest of things. The most mind-boggling one I’ve seen recently is someone complaining about libraries of all things. A librarian friend posted the cartoon to the right, and he just went off. He started with the typical “who needs a library

A Look Back at National Writing Month…

At the beginning of the month, I set myself a modest goal. Write one post every weekday for the month of November, although I probably should have clarified “weekday” didn’t include the holiday. I missed three days of the month. Not great, but not horrible either. I had assumed the reason I

Jenna Duffy is My Spirit Animal

I’ve been reading more comic books since my library got Hoopla. One I particularly enjoyed was Gotham City Sirens. It was kitschy and fun and focused on the relationship between three female friends. Basically, everything I want. It was also the comic that introduced me to Jenna Duffy, aka The Carpenter. The
