Seriously Funny Reads

Dear Reader, Literature, as a medium for comedy, is sorely underrated. I have so often heard people lament, “ugh, I should read more…”. Well, if that’s the way that you feel, I would highly recommend that you start with comedy — they’re real page-turners! Here are a few of my more recent recommendations: “Meaty” and...

[Review] The Nineties

Wow. I don’t usually have too many emotions about non-fiction books, but Chuck Klosterman’s “The Nineties” in one word must be w-o-w. Klosterman opens the book with an introduction to an era not punctuated by the date January 1, 1990, rather with important events to close the 1980’s like Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment (which leads to...

I Hope You’re Happy

Dear Reader, It’s been a while, but I’m going to talk about my book again. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about my book (which partially explains my lackluster promotion of it).

You read that right; the 2019 movie became a book in 2021 (not the other way around). For all you readers out... Continue Reading →

[Review] The Other Me

Dear Reader, When you look at your life do you see crossroads, where one directional deviation could change everything? For Kelly, this point came around her 17th birthday in high school. Twelve years later, in one reality she’s a starving artist in Chicago and in another she’s a “glorified housewife” in small-town Michigan. At the... Continue Reading →

[Review] American Psycho

Dear Reader, How much does someone’s favorite book say about that person? In the thriller series “You,” by Caroline Kepnes, the heartthrob-serial-killer protagonist, Joe, is surprised to learn that his chipper, middle-aged employee, Ethan, claims “American Psycho” to be his favorite book. Have you read “American Psycho” by Bret Easton Ellis? Maybe, you’ve seen the... Continue Reading →
