Come Book Shopping with Me at The Country Bookseller

Both my family and my boyfriend's family have lake houses near Wolfeboro, NH. We were up at his family's house for his mother's birthday last weekend, which gave me the chance to visit my favorite bookstore ever: The Country Bookseller. Ever since I was a child, going to this store a few times of year… Continue reading Come Book Shopping with Me at The Country Bookseller

Back to School Book Haul, Part II

The last of my books have finally come in. These ones were ordered off Amazon. This still isn't all the books on my reading lists, just the ones I bought. I was able to get some for free on my Kindle, and there were a few I already owned. Bread Upon the Waters: A Governess's… Continue reading Back to School Book Haul, Part II

Back to School Book Haul, Part I

Another semester is about to start, and that means new books! I'm taking a 19th-century American literature seminar called National Space in Early Republican and Antebellum Writings and an independent study on Victorian women novelists and how they portray women. These aren't all the books for the courses, just the ones I purchased from ThriftBooks.… Continue reading Back to School Book Haul, Part I

Comes Book Shopping with Me at Barnes & Noble

A Bookish Christmas, 2020

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays! I certainly am. This year was a little less bookish than others. There were other, more urgent things that I needed, like money toward my new computer and an external disc drive (since apparently laptops aren't made with them anymore). Other highlights include a Coach purse from my… Continue reading A Bookish Christmas, 2020

Come Book Shopping With Me at Valley Wild Books

Last weekend, my boyfriend gave me $50, took me to a local used bookstore, and let me go wild! He's the best. đź’• I absolutely love this store. They have such a wide range of things. All the major displays today were winter, blue, and white themed. I was happy to see The Snow Child… Continue reading Come Book Shopping With Me at Valley Wild Books

A Bookish Birthday, Part II

Wait, you say, your birthday was over a month ago now. And you are quite correct. But I received several unexpected presents well after the actual day, and I finally had the chance to take pictures of them. So here is part two of my birthday book haul. The Girls at 17 Swann Street by… Continue reading A Bookish Birthday, Part II

A Bookish Birthday

My 27th birthday was last Sunday. And while I am lamenting how old I feel, I am cheered up by the bookish gifts I received! There weren't quite as many as other years because my parents also bought me two memory foam pillows (which are amazing, by the way). But quality over quantity is my… Continue reading A Bookish Birthday
