Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Date Mon, May 1 2017

I’ve been watching Parks and Recreation for the second time (nearly finished, actually). I appreciate the show more now than I did my first run though, I think. Although, I did and still do see much of myself in the main character, Leslie Knope. Leslie is played by SNL veteran, feminist, and comedienne Amy Poehler, […]

The False Prince by Jennifer Nielson

Date Fri, April 28 2017

For years, my sister has been raving about the Ascendance Trilogy, a series of fantasy books for young adults. She first read them a few years ago (right around the time that the books came out), so I am definitely out of the ideal demographic as a nearly 31-year-old woman, but I wanted to read […]

Unnatural Creatures

Date Tue, March 14 2017

Unnatural Creatures is a collection of short stories curated by Neil Gaiman about monsters and fantastic beasts of all sorts. If you’re familiar with Gaiman’s fiction, then you probably expect these stories to be new and unusual takes on those stories, and you’d be right.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

Date Mon, March 13 2017

Some time ago, I decided I didn’t like Jenny Lawson Aka the Bloggess. I don’t entirely recall why. Perhaps it was how everyone seemed to adore her, yet I couldn’t find the humor in her posts. Maybe it was insecurity as a blogger myself. She was so Internet famous despite having been around the blog […]

Comediennes

Date Fri, January 11 2013

The subject of Comediennes is one that is near and dead to my heart, so it’s a Shane that I cannot recommend it wholeheartedly. It’s not that the content is lacking necessarily, but the writing is inconsistent, and the organization is confusing. Despite this, the book does give some inherit insight into the lives of many […]

Getting Over Mr. Right

Date Tue, July 10 2012

I don’t read a lot of chicklit, but sometimes it’s just what you need. This wasn’t a hard read, and it was easy to pick back up. It didn’t take a lot to get into the mindset of it. With that said, it also wasn’t a very good book. Not only does main character Ashleigh […]
