Book Riot Live


A few weeks ago, I wrote about how I spent a free day in New York. The morning after my bookish sightseeing, I woke up bright and early with the incentive of bagels for breakfast. Just outside our building, Times Square was bright but completely deserted at 6 in the morning.

Florida living

I’ve been meaning to write for so long, and as always, there’s just been so much going on that my writing got pushed to the back burner. In the past few months, a lot has happened, and I couldn’t be happier with how my year finished.
