The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

Can you believe that 2015 is nearly upon us? I can’t! This year flew by and was full of awesome things (getting engaged, getting married, fun trips, etc.) but I’m pretty excited for the new year. If I had to choose a favorite holiday, it would be New Year’s. I love how it feels likeContinue reading “The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin”

The Andy Cohen Diaries by Andy Cohen

You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been a little MIA lately and it’s been all about Lauren and her vast amount of reading (and our first giveaway!!!) but I ACED MY FINALS, so I have good reason.

I would say that I occasionally enjoyed it, but really found myself squinting my eyes at another extremely long rant/paragraph about a topic the author had already talked about ten times.Continue reading “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed”

I picked up this book during my senior year English class. We had to write a book report each quarter, and I picked this one because it was short. I didn’t choose the short book because I hated reading—I chose it so I could finish it in a few class periods and get on withContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer”
