Books I’ve read lately

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to write up about some of the books I’ve been reading, so I thought I would do some concise summaries just to get them out of my head and recorded on this blog. You know that’s why I blog right? To get things out of my head […]

Book Club:: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

To prepare for the recently released movie, our book club decided to read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This book falls in the category of a classic children’s book but also the genre of literary nonsense, which we discovered as we were discussing the book together.

And honestly, I didn’t like the first couple chapters – I couldn’t figure out what was going […]

Book Club:: The Zookeeper’s Wife

We try to vary up classics, fiction and non-fiction to appeal to a variety of readers and expand our own literary world! This book tells the true story of the husband and wife that ran the Warsaw zoo during World War 2. […]
