[Review] Nothing Good Can Come from This

Dear Reader, “In her sharp, incisive debut essay collection, Coulter reveals a portrait of a life in transition.” This sentence that I have reprinted for you is a line from the description of Kristi Coulter’s memoir Nothing Good Can Come from This: Essays. In sitting down to write this review, I found that this was... Continue Reading →

[Review] We Are Never Meeting in Real Life

Dear Reader, Sometimes things get stressful and our minds just crave unadulterated entertainment. For me, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.: Essays by Samantha Irby unexpectedly became exactly what I was looking for. This memoir is too funny for words. It’s so hilarious, in fact, I hardly even want to write about it at... Continue Reading →

[Review] The Privileged Poor

Dear Reader, What does it mean to be a broke college student? When I was in college my friends and I would use the broke-college kid excuse in jest to justify a night in with mixed drinks rather than spring for the $15 cocktails. While many college students are thrifty, a college student who literally... Continue Reading →

[Review] Lit: A Memoir

Dear Reader, Have you heard of Mary Karr? While there are many authors out there who rose to stardom and then wrote their memoirs and tell-all’s, Mary Karr did the reverse — she wrote memoirs and became famous for them. If her name sounds familiar, it may be because you have read her well-known work... Continue Reading →

The subject of sexual harassment is... Continue Reading →

[Review] Don’t Worry It Gets Worse

Dear Reader, It seems that millennials much more than older generations have problems with “adulting.” It is as if this generation is more likely to move back in with their parents after graduating from college, more likely to work multiple part-time jobs, more likely to rely on parents for support (if they have such privilege),...

[Review] How To Murder Your Life

We all know that drugs are bad, however, unless we ourselves have struggled with addiction or have seen what addiction looks like up close, it can be hard to truly understand just how dangerous these temptations really are. I recently finished reading How to Murder Your Life: A Memoir by Cat Marnell and although the... Continue Reading →

[Review] Heartburn

Dear Reader, Sometimes, when you are feeling down, a nice pick-me-up like an ice cream Sunday or glass of wine can be oh-so satisfying. While I, at times, partake in these little indulgences, I also very much enjoy listening to comedic audiobooks for some much-needed amusement. Lately, I have been listening to books that deal...

[Review] White Like Her

Dear Reader, The funny thing about race is that it was never intended to be a subject of debate or question, rather an obvious identifier of “who you are.” If you look 'white,' people assume you are white; if you look 'black,' people assume you are black. Race, however, as we all know, is not... Continue Reading →
