Books Of The Month: March 2016

I know I know I know. I didn’t read a lot, but I still read. That has to count for something, right?

City of Bones by Cassandra ClareCity of Bones by Cassandra Clare

One phrase description: Incest? 


Only people with no purpose are unhappy.

My general thoughts: I liked it. I didn’t love it. I didn’t hate it. But then again I’m different about a lot of things.

Get Me Out of Here by Sachiko Murakami

One phrase description: A book of poems you could potentially read at an airport.


Hint: we’re not really “here.”

My general thoughts: The cover looks much better in real life. I’m sure the poems read better when read by everyone else as well. What can I say? I’m a wannabe poet who wants to appreciate poetry but lacks the ability to do so.

On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee

One phrase description: A book that gets better and better.


A tale, like the universe, they tell us, expands ceaselessly each time you examine it, until there’s finally no telling exactly where it begins, or ends, or where it places you now.

My general thoughts: I enjoyed the novel enough to write a paper on it.

Now onto what I want (and kind of need) to finish next month…

The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary by Andrew Westoll

Why: Remember when I said this?

“And because I want to be honest for once, there was another book I was supposed to read for class. I barely opened it.”

I finally opened it!

I’m aiming to finish the book before my final exam. Just to decrease my chances of failing.

As always, happy reading!

What I Love-Observing People: March 2016

What I Love-Observing People-March 2016

Since I’ve come to realize that I’m capable of loving some things, I may or may not expand these “What I Love” posts to include a variety of apps, objects, etc. 

But then again everything is entirely dependent on my mood.

Here are a few of the things I’ve been loving this month:

The Grammarly Affiliate Program

Setting alerts on my calendar for important events

AlertEver since I showed up to a tutorial when there wasn’t one, I’ve vowed not to make the same mistake again.


Watching gaming videos on YouTube

I don’t game much anymore, but I watch other people play. It’s pretty much the same thing…

People submitting writer problems to my Tumblr blog: aspiringwriter22

Submitted to aspiringwriter22

I love seeing my inbox grow. It warms my tiny, dark heart. If you want to submit a writer problem, send them to me. I’ll give your blog a shoutout to my awesome followers.

Observing people on the subway

Since I don’t want to get sued, you’ll just have to imagine people on the subway and my observing them. It’s a writer thing.

I respect people’s privacy. I don’t respect many people, but I respect privacy.
