Book Review: I Liked it Just Fine

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng My rating: 3 of 5 stars Three stars means I liked this book. I didn’t *really* like it and I didn’t love it. I read it quickly and I looked forward to picking up where I left off. It was a more sophisticated soap opera of sorts, plenty of […]

Read My First F*cking Book Review of 2018

Something I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You: 13 Stories by Alice Munro My rating: 5 of 5 stars I hope this book sets the standard for all the other books I’m going to read this year. It was damn near perfect. This is the second book of Munro’s I’ve read and now I am a […]

Oh Baby

I have a soundtrack to my life. You probably do too. Walking down the street with my headphones on gives purpose to the mundane and everyday.

Read My F*cking Book [Reviews]

I recently had stickers made based on a blog post from 2016 called “Read a Fucking Book”. I made bleeped and unbleeped versions to appeal to different tastes. My coworkers love anything free, so they’ve been scooping them up. One of them asked me, “What’s your blog about? Do you review books?” I actually do […]

America, I Hate You (America, I Love You)

A few months ago, it occurred to me that I’d been going out and drinking more than usual. “I’m just busy”, I thought. “I say yes to people too often.” And while that’s true, I was a bit too willing. Usually, I’m happiest when I’m being productive and earning my cocktails. (To be clear, I […]
