Temples, markets, and glorious street food.
An afternoon at the National Museum
I guess I could say I have a better appreciation for the works of art that's there now than I ever could as a kid.
The Rarity That is The Time Traveler’s Wife
This post contains spoilers. Just a heads up for those who haven't read the book or watched the movie. It's been a while since I've written about a book I've read and I figured that this book just seems fitting for this month.

Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy (a.k.a. the easiest book review I made. And not in a good way.)

I read through the Kids, then moved on to the Twins series. I think I started reading Sweet Valley High right when I started … Continue reading Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later
The Book Affair
