Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?–Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal. She’s my Patronus. And that voice that sits at the side of my brain like a peanut gallery. She’s the person that makes me stand up for myself, say what I’m thinking, and generally acts as the beacon for being the weirdo that I am. She stands alongside FeliciaContinue reading “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?–Mindy Kaling”

Miles to Go–Miley Cyrus

This needs some explanation as to why on Earth I would read something like this. For the past two years I’ve been participating in a book challenge called ’26 Books With Bringing Up Burns’. It’s helping me get through my shelves, read books I wouldn’t think to read, and overall expanding my genre selection. Now.Continue reading “Miles to Go–Miley Cyrus”

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)–Felicia Day

I feel like I read a bunch of books all in a row that made me feel better as a human being. That made me want to TRY harder as a human being. And that made me realize that I am becoming my best self even if I’m scared to death half the time aboutContinue reading “You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)–Felicia Day”

The Art of Asking–Amanda Palmer

This book is the pinnacle of what I’ve been feeling lately. I hate asking for help, the shame kills me, my pride is exhausting, and I feel like the Fraud Police are constantly after me. Being an artist, a writer, or anything really, in the creative field (or actually life if you think about it)Continue reading “The Art of Asking–Amanda Palmer”

Happy Accidents–Jane Lynch

This was a surprise find in a thrift store. I had wanted to read it for a while but I do not have the monetary means to be purchasing a zillion books at full price. I’ve always admired Jane Lynch and how funny she is and how she appears to give zero fucks about imageContinue reading “Happy Accidents–Jane Lynch”

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up–Theresa Caputo

I read this as a joke. I bought it for my dad for Christmas because he used to watch Long Island Medium all the time and got a real kick out of Theresa. For those of you who don’t know, Theresa communicates with passed over loved ones through someone she calls “Spirit” and relays messagesContinue reading “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up–Theresa Caputo”

Lord of Misrule: An Autobiography–Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee is the biggest badass on the block. This guy has met so many awesome people while also being the ultimate of awesome people. He’s played everyone from Dracula to Sherlock Holmes to Saruman to Count Dooku. He does voice work; makes metal rock albums, golf’s like nobodies business, and used to do hisContinue reading “Lord of Misrule: An Autobiography–Christopher Lee”

To Say A Little Word…

Here’s Ellen: “I personally like being unique. I like being my own person with my own style and my own opinions and my own toothbrush. I think it’s so much better to stand out in some way and to set yourself apart from the masses. It would be so boring to look out into theContinue reading “To Say A Little Word…”

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly–Jean-Dominique Bauby

Astounding. If I could describe this book in one word it’s: astounding. This man wrote this whole book with his eyelid.  Not literally, not like he held a pen or typed with his face, but dictated it through his own Morse code and alphabet what he wanted to say.  Jean-Dominique had a (rare) stroke andContinue reading “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly–Jean-Dominique Bauby”

Guts–Kristen Johnston

I am not a drug addict. But I AM an addict. I’m addicted to books, Facebook, Pinterest, sewing, knitting, singing, and so many other things. Poutine. I’m addicted HARD to poutine. And pizza. …I’m hungry. Just because I’m not addicted to drugs does not mean that I’m not an addict. We’re ALL addicts. That’s whatContinue reading “Guts–Kristen Johnston”
