June has arrived. For many, this month marks the beginning of Summer. Warm weather, no school, tons of ice cream. But for some, June has a bigger importance. It's Pride Month. And I don't want this post to be about politics, but this year, Pride Month is being celebrated in the wake of disappointing movements [...]
I've never been good at writing. But I loved the idea of starting a blog and sharing my thoughts about the books I love. It started out as (and still is) simply a place where I can rant about books. I may have an English degree, and I may have presented semi-okay academic papers at literary conferences, but my book reviews are . . .

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I even missed my second Saturday Sentiments post -- I'm not off to a great start, am I. Well, the reason I fell behind was that I took a mini-vacation to Louisville, Kentucky for my English Honor Society's international convention. Pretty cool, right? I was accepted [...]
