Literature Monday: White Oleander, Janet Fitch

Hello, beautiful people! I know it’s not a Monday today, but I submitted my last paper of the semester last Tuesday and I was so excited to work on non-academic fare that I just had to publish this entry. White Oleander by Janet Fitch is a book that always seemed to be in my periphery, but I […]

Literature Monday: The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman

Up until this year, the only Neil Gaiman book I had ever read was Coraline (featured in an earlier post).

Literature Monday: Star Wars Encyclopedia, Stephen J. Sansweet

Khairete, Mikaius remains your substitute book worm as Dani battles mighty deadlines. Well, it’s time for a moment from my childhood. Growing up in the ’90s, I was lucky enough to enjoy Star Wars before the Prequels and the ’97 Remasters: I was just old enough to get the “real deal”, and it’s nice to have […]
