Whether you're local or just planning … Continue reading An October in Portland

What to Read this Fall

I don't know about everyone else, but once the leaves start changing, my reading tastes shift to something a bit more on the darker side. Gone are my desires for breezy romantic contemporaries, and in comes the taste for mysteries, thrillers, and more horror themed books. It could be the fact that I generally tend … Continue reading What to Read this Fall

Sip into Summer

I don't know about anyone else, but for me, I like to think of Memorial Day weekend as the kickoff to Summer.

Friday Favs- Coffee Edition

I love coffee. I love the taste, the smell, the uniqueness of each roast...basically I'm obsessed. When I was in college, I was working at Starbucks as well as working at my university's campus coffee shop. Long story short, at one point during my senior year I was drinking about 6 cups A DAY. It … Continue reading Friday Favs- Coffee Edition

This is a group on Goodreads where the moderators come up with different topics for your "Top Five" bookish lists.

Thirteen Reasons Why I’m Famous In Love…?

I've recently finished watching two new television series, which you can probably guess from the title of this post, are Thirteen Reasons Why and Famous in Love. While these two shows could literally not be more opposite from each other in terms of content, they do share one thing in common: both of these series were adapted for … Continue reading Thirteen Reasons Why I’m Famous In Love…?

Where I Buy Books

What a lame post title, right?? But I honestly could not figure out how else to title it, when this post is literally all about where I buy my books. I am constantly getting asked how I can afford all of the books I buy. I think that it's pretty typical when imagining a bookstore … Continue reading Where I Buy Books

When I was a kid, I was OBSESSED with Archie Comics. Specifically, the Betty & Veronica issues because duh...? Every time we would go on a trip, my parents would get me an issue or two to read to keep me busy. They grew up reading Archie and passed their love for these comics down … Continue reading The New Riverdale
