What a wonderful collection of essays on reading!

This book is a collection of personal essays on the impact of books and reading on the author‘s life. I found many of them relatable. One of my favorites was “To Break The Rules” (pg. 65) which discusses how there is no right way to be a “Good Reader.” We should read how and what we want. I wholeheartedly agree!

This book destroyed me in the best possible way.

The last 100 or so pages of the book were insane. A lot of crazy stuff went down. At one point, I was nervous to keep reading because I was a little scared to know what was going to happen next. The book definitely ended on a massive OMG moment.

This was a lovely collection of classic love poems!

The selection of authors was expected. It features classic love poets such as Shakespeare, Dickinson, and Byron. I‘m not that familiar with classic poetry (I read more modern poetry), so I cannot speak too much on the selection of poems.

As with almost all poetry collections, some poems stood out more than others.

This was such a fun and empowering story!

I love fashion and I grew up in the Silicon Valley so naturally I loved the premise and thought it was executed well. The portrayal of the fashion industry and the tech industry felt current and tackled issues commonly seen in today‘s world (for example, influencers photoshopping their photos before posting them).

I was a philosophy major in college so naturally I was excited to read this.

This was a very practical guide on stoicism and how to incorporate it into your everyday life. The author does a good job breaking down the philosophy of stoics in an easy to follow way, while also including quotes from the stoics themselves.

What a heartwarming graphic novel!

I absolutely loved the friendship dynamic between the 3 friends. It felt realistic and I liked how supportive they were of each another. Their friendship with their neighbor was also well done. I liked how she became a mentor to the girls and how the girls also helped her out.

This is the sequel to the author‘s first book, Diary of a Contemporary Woman, which I enjoyed. I liked this book, but it wasn‘t as good as its predecessor.

The book didn‘t feel as polished. It felt rough and could have been edited more. The pacing was also a little off. Some scenes were super short and others felt dragged out.

What a wild ride!

The story is kind of absurd. It‘s about an assassin who specializes in poison enlisting the help of a marriage swindler to help him find someone to marry. Crazy concept, but it‘s so fun.

There‘s a good balance of action and humor.
