The Last Story of Mina Lee – Book Review

This book was just okay for me. Generally, most of the books I've read that had that coveted Reese's Book Club sticker on the cover, I have straight up loved, flipping pages long past my bed time, spending way too much daylight reading them. But while the premise of this story intrigued me, the story itself seemed to be just as confused as the one of our heroines, Margot.

The Poet X – Book Review

I loved With the Fire On High so much that when I saw this book become available at my library, I jumped on it. I will admit that reading poetry was not something I was looking forward to.

Winter Wonderland Coaster + Trivet Duo

Before I learned how to crochet, my grandma taught me how to embroider. I wanted to combine that first love with my current love, and thus the Winter Wonderland Coaster + Trivet Duo was born.
