On the Syllabus: My Favorite College Reads, Part Two

Last week, I wrote a post about my favorite assigned college reading. (Thanks again to Megan at Hepburn’s Pixie Crop for the idea!) But that post featured a pretty gaping hole: not a single book from my major! That’s because Art History assigned reading is generally articles or chapters, not books.

70 Years of “Chronicles of Narnia” Cover Art

Growing up, The Chronicles of Narnia was one of my all-time favorite book series. C.S. Lewis’ classic books are imaginative, memorable and enthralling, especially for fantasy loving-kids like me.

Tea & Book Pairings: Earl Grey and The Chronicles of Narnia

I’m starting up a new blog feature, Tea & Book Pairings! Now, I’m not really the type to overthink my food choices as they relate to- Raucous laughter erupts. Approximately 88.6% of the people I know are currently laughing hysterically because I am exactly the type to overthink everything. But the next time we’re watching … More Tea & Book Pairings: Earl Grey and The Chronicles of Narnia

Here’s Why I’m Excited About the CW’s “Little Women” Reboot

I’m taking an unpopular stand today, folks, as you’ve probably already guessed from the title of this post. The CW has been getting a lot of flak the last couple of weeks for an upcoming reboot of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.
