Alexia’s February Book Haul

Alexia’s February Book Haul

How is it the end of February already? The first two months of the year have flown by already. I still don’t have a date for my cardiac procedure (apparently the doctor’s wife just recently had a baby, but I digress. Things have been pretty good in my personal/family life as well. I did find out that I get to return to my previous primary care doctor, which is good because I now have hypothyroidism thanks to one of my […]

What I’ve Been Watching

What I’ve Been Watching

I don’t know if you guys will ever see these posts once a month like I intended. The last time I did one of these posts was in October. I cannot believe that. Actually, given how INSANE these last few months have been, I actually can believe it. These last few months, I’ve gravitated towards old favorites, old comforts. Things that make me think of simpler, less crappy times. Both Netflix & Hulu have been instrumental in this. Rewatch ER […]

Well I failed to factor in diverse fluff. Between this book and the recent release, American Panda, I am LOVING the diverse contemporaries I’ve read lately. I can only hope the trend continues. Not only did this book offer a great romance, but it offers complicated family dynamics, friendship difficulties […]

Book Review: American Panda by Gloria Chao

Book Review: American Panda by Gloria Chao

I had extremely high expectations for American Panda and I was so afraid that it wouldn’t measure up to my expectations. There aren’t nearly enough books with Taiwanese main characters and I am always wanting more of them. I don’t know a whole lot about the Taiwanese culture, but I was very excited to learn more about it. Oh. My. God. This book was absolute perfection and I even tweeted at the author to tell her that right after I […]
