Book Review: The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up

Just in time for the new year, a review about a decluttering book! I’ll admit that when Marie Kondo first became a sensation, I was pretty skeptical. I tried to read her book but it was one of those that I ended up skimming over, going “meh this isn’t for me” and then returning itContinue reading “Book Review: The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up”

Book Review: The Child Thief

The Child Thief by Brom has been on my reading list for a good long time, as has been The Devil’s Rose and Krampus: The Yule Lord. I figured that now that I’m done with the 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, I’d sit down and work on a few other books that have been on myContinue reading “Book Review: The Child Thief”

Book Review: Hicotea

I read Nightlights by Lorena Alvarez Gomez earlier this year and fell in love with it. I loved the story, but I especially loved her artwork. Naturally, when I saw that Nightlights had a sequel, I had to go pick up Hicotea. I think I liked this one even more than the first, and Lorena’sContinue reading “Book Review: Hicotea”

So this year I decided to do my first ever Popsugar Reading Challenge. Will I be doing it again next year? Absolutely.

Book Review: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

I had such mixed feelings about this book. I think my favorite thing about it was that the front cover sets you up for a little of what you would expect. As I was reading, I had a lot of flashbacks to my own childhood. Not that my parents were strict, and I’m only 1/8thContinue reading “Book Review: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother”

Book Review: This Body’s Not Big Enough for Both of Us

This was a fun, entertaining read. It reminded me a lot of a comic book, with the crazy action scenes, plot twists, clich├ęs and pop-culture references, and I enjoyed Kimrean. I often wondered how on earth Kimrean could function, though, as both A and Z are so vastly different, it really was like having twoContinue reading “Book Review: This Body’s Not Big Enough for Both of Us”

Book Review: Happiness Project

So it’s been a long time since I did a book review here, but books are one of my many passions so I decided I’d start reviewing again with a book that is about the pursuit of happiness. I found myself really enjoying this book. I liked that the author could be honest with herselfContinue reading “Book Review: Happiness Project”
