A Little Life ✻ Book Review

It has been such a long time since I’ve been thoroughly invested in a story, and A Little Life was worth all the angst, tears and hours of lost sleep. Thankfully, this book is over 700 pages long, which meant that I didn’t have to part with it too quickly. During the time it took […]

Lists

A couple months ago, I came across a Listography Journal that immediately caught my attention. This book is perfect for anyone who loves writing down lists, including myself.

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

Fall: the season of change and endings. The trees that once thrived during spring and summer are now facing months of slumber.

But despite this melancholy picture, Fall is also the season of vibrant colours: orange-red leaves scattered over pavements, pumpkins decorating windowsills […]
