Bibliomancy for Beginners: “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” by Caitlyn Doughty

Hey look at us! We’re back again, starting a round of nonfiction picks. The first is Michaela’s pick, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlyn Doughty. We all know how I feel about squeamish things, so this book was just so much fun.

A Huge Book Haul and a Life Update in One!

I thought I could do a little book haul for this week, but it turns out I’ve acquired a looooot more books than I originally thought. Also, at the end there is a little life update for you guys about my most recent crazy life adventures and why I’ve got a new background to my videos. Remember to leave a comment and tell me what to read next!

Review: Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham

Back again! With more nonfiction! I’m really sorry I can’t kick this but I hope you like it! I loved this book more than Princess Diarist, especially because it had more cohesion to it. It just wasn’t entirely what I expected, either…

Also, I really thought I’d fixed the video proportion problem but it still exported this way? I may need more technical expertise than I have with the new editor I’m using…

I’m Currently Reading Too Much, Please Help!

I am currently reading too many things, and I can’t finish a one. Some of them are harder to finish by myself, like my story time books with Michaela, but some of these are just plain old my fault. Also, Name of the Wind is a REALLY LONG AUDIOBOOK, OKAY?

Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert K. Massie Review

I fully accept that nobody might care about this review but me, but the feminist in me had some things to say about it so I couldn’t help myself. Yes, this is a nonfiction biography BUT it is considered the definitive biography on Catherine the Great so if you care I guess this would be a book for you? I’m probably talking to dead air here. That’s cool. I’ll keep my nerd self over here.
