Well, hopefully this is goodbye to my accidental blog hiatus. Reading books, unfortunately, has not been high on my to-do list. And when reading isn’t happening, writing isn’t happening. So … Continue reading As of Late: Accidental Blog Hiatus
Photo Credit: Spin Magazine’s “Best Coast and WAVVES’s Spin Cover Shoot“ Ugh, thank goodness January is over. That was by far one of the most emotionally exhausting January’s I’ve had … Continue reading As of Late: Moving Past the January Blues
It’s 3am of a Monday morning, and you can’t sleep. You toss and you torn, trying to ignore the lure of electronic gadgets to pass the insomnia. An hour later, … Continue reading As of Late: RIP David Bowie
Well, it’s 2016 now. I’m coming off 2 weeks of winter break, and although I didn’t read as much as I would’ve liked, here’s a few good pieces online: David … Continue reading As of Late: David Byrne, X-Files, & Pandering, Oh My!
Oof. Finally back in Oklahoma after a Friendsgiving trip after being forced to stay an extra day, rather than flying back in the middle of an ice storm. This meant … Continue reading As of Late: On to December!
Well, well, well, it’s that time again for what I’ve been reading online lately. No commentary today–been super busy at work this week and prepping to visit my BFFs for … Continue reading As of Late: How is it late November already?

Here’s the latest roundup of some of my favorite things I’ve read online as of late:
Literary Tourism: Los Angeles — A good starter guide if you want LA to be the backdrop of your latest reading.
I Married a Pot, Then Killed Him — I had never heard of Mangliks until reading this article. It’s a good read if you’re fascinated by superstitions around the world.
Nevada Gothic: an Interview with Claire Vaye Watkins — Here’s an interview with CVW that’s a couple years old, but new to me since I had only read Battleborn recently. Can I have Gold Fame Citrus already??? It’s already on Book Riot’s 5 Books to Watch for in September.

And odd classification / categorization of her upcoming book to boot! (and yes, I’m excited about her 2nd book!!!)
Taylor Swift is Not Your Friend — This will never not be a good read.

But in the meantime, here’s what I did at work today: catalog lobby cards!
