04. Burial Rights, Hannah Kent (Feb 19) LOOK AT ALL THESE BOOKS! After we finished The Girl With All the Gifts, we had to listen to something else. So we chose this cheerful (true) story about the last woman to be put to death in Iceland. This story was beautifully written as well, in a more confessional […]

03. The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy (Feb 16) I most certainly did NOT read this entire book in one day while on my honeymoon. I had this one as an actual book and had been reading it for some time, while we listened to The Girl With All the Gifts together. I mentioned earlier that […]

14. The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer, December 20 THIS is exactly how far behind I am with my blogs. I finished this book in DECEMBER and am posting about it in March. I have excuses. It doesn’t really matter. There was a lot of commotion when this book came out. How much of […]

I’ve been messing with my hair for weeks. As I wrote in earlier posts, I’ve been trying to maintain a grey color for a long time now, and it’s been going ok. I guess. I just spent 2 weeks in NZ, with zero color-saving products. No color rinses to keep the grey for longer, no special […]
