Some books are made to be re-read. Maybe it's because they're comforting. Maybe it's because you see something new in them every time. Maybe it's because the characters just won't let you go. For whatever reason, you just can't put them down. This is actually a super good Top Ten Tuesday tag for me right … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Re-Read Forever
Have you ever watched John Oliver? He does this segment called How is this still a thing? where they just lay out the reasons that a really stupid thing that still exists should be long gone.

I loved Miles, … Continue reading Book Review: Miles Morales by Jason Reynolds
