For the past three years, I've read one super long non-fiction book every year. I wouldn't call it a tradition yet because I feel like it takes a solid ten years for something to become a tradition, but it's at least in its toddler stage. (A toddler tradition!)

This list only has three books on it right now because as I'm writing this, ModernMrs.Darcy (aka the book-world authority I look towards for this type of information) still hasn't posted a guide to 2019 fall releases yet. As soon as that drops, I am sure this list will expand. And it's a tentative list… Continue reading A short and tentative to be read list (ft. new fall releases!)

(warning: lengthy post ahead)

As I'm writing this, I have to go to school in thirty minutes to take my Spanish exam. Tomorrow, I have my math exam. And after that, I will be summer bound. I am very very excited, but less ecstatically so than last year. There's a bittersweet tinge to my feelings this time around. I… Continue reading A list of new and upcoming books I have my eye on
