• You Don’t Look Your Age…and Other Fairy Tales When Meryl Streep says she loves something, I generally take that as a sign that it is almost definitely worth looking into. So when I had the opportunity to get an early book at “You Don’t Look Your Age” by Sheila Nevins, I saw that Meryl Streep had already been singing it’s praises and jumped […] No responses April 3, 2017
  • How I Decide What To Read (AND A Giveaway!) It’s no secret around here that I read, and read a lot. I haven’t been reading as much recently with some other personal projects needing more time than usual, but during a normal period it’s not unusual for me to read two or more books a week. Sure, that’s takes a lot of time but […] No responses March 28, 2017
  • You Will Know Me (Book Recommendation) I’ve seen this book pop up here and there in recommendations for a little while now. I’m not sure if it’s because I didn’t find the cover compelling or what, but for some reason I was never that drawn to it. But over the holidays I decided to try out the Book Of The Month […] No responses January 16, 2017
  • Megan’s Book Picks of 2016 As we are nearing the end of 2016, there’s one thing that I am thankful for – and that’s that there were SO MANY great books this year. Really, I have read over 60 books this year and very few were less than great. There were, of course, some that I couldn’t even make myself […] No responses December 13, 2016
  • Photographs From The Edge What does it take to be a travel photographer? Many of us would probably say that it takes the sort of luck that, for whatever reason, we were not blessed with. Can you say dream job?? But what does it actually take? I wanted to know too, and then I came across this book that […] One response November 3, 2016
  • Warp by Lev Grossman Apparently I’m in the minority here based on other reviews I’ve seen because I absolutely loved this book. No, it’s not action packed but it’s wonderfully written in a nothing-happens-but-we-continue-to-exist-regardless sort of way….which is important and terribly difficult to portray. Talk about a slice of life feeling. I immediately saw a parallel to Catcher In […] One response September 23, 2016
  • Those We Fear by Victoria Griffith When I started Those We Fear by Victoria Griffith, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was getting into. The description touched on a thriller/suspense/paranormal combo and I was mostly curious how a ghost might fit in. A ghost? Alright…go on…I’m interested. If there’s anything about a book that will draw me in is a sense […] No responses June 17, 2016
  • ‘Cravings: Recipes For What You Want To Eat,’ by Chrissy Teigen It’s been a while since I’ve seen a cookbook that’s as beautiful as ‘Cravings.’ In fact, even if the recipes were total crap, I’d still enjoy this simply for the fact that it’s such a beautiful book just to look at. I wouldn’t just have been attracted to this book because it was written by […] No responses May 13, 2016
  • ‘The Yoga Of Max’s Discontent,’ by Karan Bajaj Books on spirituality or spiritual journeys aren’t usually my thing, but I have to give Karan Bajaj an enormous amount of credit because this book was so incredible that I may have to reevaluate that stance. The Yoga of Max’s Discontent is the story of Max, a Wall Street man who grew up in the […] No responses May 6, 2016
