Blanche’s Book Club: ‘Leave Me’.
Hey, hey! It’s been a little while since I was here – it has been a crazy few weeks at work, and I didn’t really do any of the reading or writing I thought I was going to do on my trip to west Texas (more on that in a later post). But, yesterday I […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘Searching for John Hughes’.
Howdy! I’m feeling so relaxed this morning – finally – after a pretty rough week, but I went to a retreat yesterday, which I’ll write more about later. Today, I’m excited to share the book Blanche’s Book Club just finished! I’m talking about “Searching for John Hughes” by Jason Diamond. Here’s the book’s description from […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore’.
It’s not even 11am and I’m only the struggle bus for the day – issues at the office, and y’all KNOW how little tolerance I have for that #WhyDontIWorkForMyself Anyway, I’ve got another book to share with you from Blanche’s Book Club! It’s “The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore” by Kim Fu. Here is the […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘The Queen of Hearts’.
Another day, another book to read! On Saturday, I went out to lunch with a friend (we had vegan Chinese food) and we went to see Cecile Richards on her book tour. I got home around 5pm, and had one thing on my to-do list: read a book. This book was due back at the […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘The Glass Castle’.
Hellooooo! I’m happy to report that I’m back on the giant sleeping pills and those seem to be working for the time-being. I am still very much into reading as my form of escape, but am slowly getting back into some of my favorite creative endeavors. My blog course at UT is back in session, […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘Better Than Before’.
You know, for this being Blanche’s Book Club, I realized I don’t really talk much about my reader friend, Miss Blanche! For background, Blanche is my rescue kitty, and she just recently turned 5! As a Calico, she is very sassy – and she’s equipped with all of her claws (very sharp) and large teeth. […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘Into the Wild’.
So…who watched the premier of the “Roseanne” revival? Heh, ME!!!! I was overly excited for it, and well, I’m looking forward to seeing what the remainder of the season has to offer. I also whipped up some vegan sloppy joes with rosemary red potatoes, and it was pretty delicious. I am continuing to roll right […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘The Dinner’.
I certainly have much more on my mind than my latest read, but for now, I’m sticking to my journal until I’m ready to talk about the bigger things swirling around. Besides, I’m trying to post my book reviews ASAP and keep up with my reading list this year! So, let’s get to it! The […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘Career of Evil’.
Greetings from Harlingen, Texas! I flew in last night and am heading back to Austin in a few hours. I’m writing this from the airport, which smells like a giant toilet, so there’s that (no offense, Rio Grande Valley). I have MUCH to discuss about Blanche’s Book Club’s latest read: “Career of Evil” by Robert […]More
Blanche’s Book Club: ‘Sourdough’.
Hey there! It seems sort of pointless now to keep apologizing for not writing on a more regular basis like I have been for so long. I really can’t explain much else aside from simply saying that I feel like the last 3 months of 2017 really knocked the wind out of my sails. Even […]More
