Book Review: The Fixer

Book Review: The Fixer

Why didn’t ANY of you tell me to read this book sooner? You’ve all failed me. Full disclosure: I read half the book as an eARC and half as a library book. I kept hearing the comparison between this book & Veronica Mars, which I have not watched. I also kept hearing The Fixer get compared to Scandal, which I did not start watching until last summer. I picked up and put down my eARC more than once and the […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately

What I’ve Been Reading Lately

It’s recently come to my attention that I’m completely incapable of finishing a book. In April, I read 3 titles. In May, I read 0. In June, as of June 20th? 2. That’s it. 5 books in the last three months. That’s sad, and the worst it’s been in well over five years. But that’s not for lack of trying. I’ve picked up and put down a handful of books, sometimes even making it halfway through before getting bored or […]

I was nervous about this movie. It looked cute from the previews and I freaking ADORE Sam Claflin, but even so, I was nervous. As a disabled woman, I was worried about how they’d tackle Will’s disability. As a […]
