Book Review: More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: There were some really beautiful things about More Happy than Not, and then there were some things I didn’t like so much about it. I feel like my review will be a bit controversial, so I do want to clarify that I love the ideas this book brought about and…

Book Review: Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: I can’t say I truly enjoyed this book. I found it difficult to get through, and most of the characters unlikable to a point of nonredeemable. Into the Water is a good enough read, but I simply didn’t love it. Paula Hawkins is talented enough to where she sets a…

Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Book Rating: 4/5 Book Review: As someone who cares about and over-analyzes literally everything, I needed this book in my life. I’ve been all about the self help books lately. Better life? More happiness? Feeling fulfilled? Being self confident? Sign. Me. Up. Share the secret! Well, Mark Manson would refer to me as a “self…
