A Short Weekend on the Jersey Shore

Ever since Andrew and I got our second vaccine doses (we got Pfizer), and waited our two weeks, we’ve been comfortable enough to take the train and start visiting our family again.  One of our first trips was out to the Jersey Shore to visit Andrew’s parents.  I’m so grateful

May Purchases

I went a little overboard on purchasing in May.  I think I’m just feeling very hopeful now that I’m fully vaccinated and things are opening up in NYC again.  I’ve been able to go out a lot and wear most of the new items I’ve purchased so that does make

Top 12 Books to Read in 2021

Another list I love making is my yearly TBR.  This is a list of backlist books that I already have sitting on my bookshelf (or TBR cart) and want to read throughout the year.  I’ve decided it’s a bit of a cursed list since I usually end up reading about

Best Books of 2020

Paranormal Book Club

The Paranormal Book Club is the brain child of Alexa from Alexa Loves Books, DJ from Life in Fiction, Rachel from Hello Chelly and myself!  On a not-so recent visit to The Strand Bookstore, we were standing in the YA fantasy section (as per usual), and we began reminiscing and feeling nostalgic about

Best TV Shows of 2020

As I mentioned in my best movies post, I read 100 less books in 2020 than I did in 2019, so I had way more television options to choose favorites from.  My absolute standout of the year if I were only able to pick one series would be Star Trek: The

Best Movies of 2020

There’s a direct correlation between my tv and movie watching and the number of books I read in a year.  I ended up reading half of what I read in 2019, which means I watched a lot of television.  I normally don’t have enough to choose from to make a list-
