Love is in the air, or at least in the titles. This week I am reading Only Love Can Break Your Heart // Ed Tarkington and The Love That Split the World // Emily Henry. I recently finished The Revenant and The 5th Wave and needed to read something different. These two hit the mark.Continue reading “It’s Monday, January 18th. What Are You Reading?”

How To Choose Which Jane Eyre Adaptation To Watch.
I received many envy-inducing out of office replies while I was at work today, on a Sunday. Apparently none of my coworkers will be back in the office until January 4th, but don’t worry, in case of library emergency, please contact “insert my work email here”. Merry, merry! I’m not really quite so grinchy. ByContinue reading “How To Choose Which Jane Eyre Adaptation To Watch.”
What To Give a Science Librarian Who Loves the Outdoors, Vintage Botanical Prints, and ’80s Slasher Films. And Books.
Not to put too fine a point on it… Gift giving can be hard. I’m here to help. Clockwise from top left: Gilmore Girls Sweatshirt. Because quite often, the bookworm in your life might actually prefer to be watching Gilmore Girls. Final Girls. I saw this at a film festival with my family and absolutely loved it.Continue reading “What To Give a Science Librarian Who Loves the Outdoors, Vintage Botanical Prints, and ’80s Slasher Films.

Zombie Apocalypse? Go Find a Library.
In case you missed it, last night was the season premiere of The Walking Dead. Whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t deny the ubiquity of zombies in popular culture. I do enjoy the show, though I didn’t watch the premiere (I’m still catching up on the last season). What I did manage toContinue reading “Zombie Apocalypse? Go Find a Library.”
It’s Monday, October 5th. What are you reading?
I went to see a movie on Friday that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was The Final Girls and the film was funny and charming. One of the things that stuck with me is an exchange between two characters in the first few minutes of the film. It is as follows, but not exactly, so don’tContinue reading “It’s Monday, October 5th.

Sixes and Sevens (and a giveaway!)
This week I present you bookish and not so bookish thoughts. Cheers to the weekend. 10. Despite the fact that I am a fairly methodical and organized person, there is one trend that I do not understand. Adult coloring. That does no mean I don’t think it produces amazing results, because it does. It’s justContinue reading “Sixes and Sevens (and a giveaway!)”
Now Reading. Monday, August 31st Edition.
Love and loss on the great plains of Texas… That totally describes my week. In reading. I’ve never really been to Texas, but that’s why we read, right? To experience people, places, and things we may never get to. On that very note, the other book I’m reading is a collection short stories about middleContinue reading “Now Reading.

Now Reading: Monday, August 17th Edition.
Completely off topic to this post, but did you know a corpse flower is about to bloom in Denver? It’s true. I’ll let you know if it smells as bad as they say it does… Moving on, but please, check out that doughnut made in honor of bloom. Just…inappropriate, right? The plant’s scientific name is AmorphophallusContinue reading “Now Reading: Monday, August 17th Edition.”
Bleakness Is My Weakness.
“Happiness is but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain.” It may surprise no one that I like my fiction dark with a side of grinding poverty, execution, murder, miscarriage, and animal genitalia related injuries – you know, general death, violence, and misery. Maybe a few dashed dreams here and there. No wonderContinue reading “Bleakness Is My Weakness.”
I spent the last week in Lake Tahoe with perfect weather, clear water, and happy kids. It was glorious. What I did not do much of was read. Instead, I averaged 18,000 steps per day (I was pleased), at least one picnic a day, and more swimming time than I can count. We tried toContinue reading “Now Reading.”
