Screen Shot 2018-01-28 at 1.51.59 PMI’m Emma (she/her/hers), and here is where I shriek about Book Outlet and comedy and sweets and podcasts and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and French and all the other stuff I love. But mostly books.

I’m a recent college grad turned marketing assistant for an online author marketing platform. It is very fun.

    Hi Emma! Nice to see you have a post naming all the books you still havent read (Thats me, too) you ALSO love Alice in Wonderland (That’s my guilty pleasure) and I hate all cringey novels too!
    I’ve been thinking to open a review blog since a very long time but everytime i get discouraged to do it. Can you please help me out here??!

      thanks girl!! unfortunately those aren’t even close to all the books i haven’t read.

      & you should totally do it! it’s been so much fun for me having this blog. it’s also the most low-pressure way to write reviews: you can post whenever, for any book – and no problem if you read a book and don’t feel like reviewing it! plus the community on wordpress is so super supportive.

      let me know if you make one and i’ll give ya a follow!

        right now your blog is private but i’ll follow when it isn’t! honestly all ya gotta do is pick a pretty theme and then fiddle around with it until you figure out what some of the buttons do. and then avoid the other buttons out of fear for eternity

    Ahhh I love your blog already, and I’ve only read two pages & one blog post? Also, seeing you list Jane Austen as a favorite author makes me so happy! (I’ve never met anyone on GR who has a 2.xx average rating as well, wow. 💓)

    Can’t wait to see more of your posts on my feed!! xx

    Hey its Erin! I just came across your blog and can’t seem to leave! Love all your posts, and just followed. I also always seem to end up with the unpopular opinion on books I read :(( so you aren’t alone!!

    Hi Emma! I discovered your blog after reading one of your reviews on Goodreads. I read your review on Radio Silence and found it hilariously honest and refreshing since I also didn’t enjoy the book and for a while couldn’t put my finger on it even though it’s surrounded by praise.

    I also love podcasts and I’m curious about your favorites. I like to listen to Juno Steel on the penumbra podcast, The Magnus Archives, and The Bright Sessions.

      hello bailey!!! thank you very much!

      i listen to mostly (okay, entirely) comedy podcasts, largely of the improvised variety. not sure if that’s your bag but if it is i’d love to chat about them!!

        I don’t really listen to comedy podcast in my free time but my roommate in college would like to play out loud “My Brother, My Brother and Me”, and now we quote the McElroys all the time.

        I’m interested in comedy podcast though. Have any you would recommend?
