SO MANY amazing books have come out this year that I’ve been psyched about. A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir (who signed my book!!!! And I haven’t read it yet cause I’m afraid of what she’s gonna do to my babies). Obsidio by Amie Kristoff and Jay Kaufman (I did read this one … Continue reading Most Anticipated 2018 Reads
Goal: 80 books (5 more books than last year) Progress: 41 books (I’ve finally gotten on track!) We’re not going to look at all of the books I’ve read so far this year in this post because that would be insanely long. Let’s just take a look at the books I read in June, and … Continue reading June Wrap-Up and Reading Challenge Update
September 2017 All was quiet in the apartment. Well, for a moment. Then the distinct scratching noises came from overhead – as if a small rodent was scuttling across the ceiling. Lauren glanced up. "Odd," she thought and hoped that she was just going crazy. For the longest time, the alleged animal didn't make a … Continue reading The Great Rodentia War of 2017
Well, June's come to an end (and we're quite a ways into July), so it's time to look at the books I've read over the past month and check in on my reading challenge! June was a really productive month for me book-wise. I only read 2 new books, but I re-read 7 books (well, … Continue reading June Wrap-Up & Goodreads Reading Challenge Update
Now that it's almost July, it seems like the ideal time to look back at my project from almost two months ago, right? Right. I completed 31 separate lettering projects across May (well, technically, May 2-June 1. But that's fine). It was my goal to do one project every day, but that didn't always happen. … Continue reading A Look Back: #laurenlettersmay
On my movie-binge the other weekend, I watched through a couple of old favorites and then some "new" movies I've been wanting to watch for a while – two of the Harry Potter movies, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (check out my review!), and then Passengers. Passengers basically tries to answer the question, "What happens if a … Continue reading REVIEW: Passengers
I finally got a chance to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and I was so excited to dive into the wizarding world again. Now, I knew that this was going to be different than the other stories. It was set in America. And it followed Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) instead of Harry, Hermione, … Continue reading REVIEW: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
In 2016, I decided that I wanted to read 52 books (1 per week). I read 73. So, when planning my reading challenge goals for 2017, I decided to take it up a notch with a goal of 75 books. But I gave myself a smidge of a break – this year, re-reads are counting … Continue reading 2017 Reading Challenge Update: May Edition
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains." – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies I'm normally not one for the undead, but a couple of my friends talked me into watching this. They promised that it wasn't super-creepy undead, but rather entertaining undead. … Continue reading REVIEW: Pride & Prejudice …. and Zombies?
For a while I had decided that since I "couldn't" draw or do art in "typical" forms, I wasn't good at art. Granted, I never practiced since I decided that I couldn't do it. And then several months ago, I kept on seeing lettering pop up on social media. And I was intrigued. It was … Continue reading Introducing… #laurenlettersmay!
