Musings on Elementary

The semester comes to an end today. It's the halfway point. It's exciting, terrifying and also a weight off my back because we could all use a break. Breaks are great. It's what drove me to rewatch CBS' Elementary. It was a great distraction as I got through the last few writing assignments and I have… Continue reading Musings on Elementary

Promises Shromises

In my last post, I promised to write something short every single day of Ramadan to help keep me focus and ride this zen state I found myself in BUT my body betrayed me and I got a sinus infection instead. I wasn't in the most contemplative state unfortunately and I still feel pretty gross.… Continue reading Promises Shromises

I walked a few blocks to… Continue reading Unhappiness & New York, New York

RAVEN CYCLE RE-READ: THE DREAM THIEVES

I finished The Dream Thieves about a week or so ago and I really enjoyed re-reading it (You can check out The Raven Boys re-read here). I do have some general observations before I dive to specific things. Compared to The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves is a far less tidy book. Stiefvater is tight… Continue reading RAVEN CYCLE RE-READ: THE DREAM THIEVES

Raven Cycle Re-Read: The Raven Boys

I recently decided to re-read The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater along with my friend before the fourth book in the series, The Raven King, comes out at the end of the month. I recently successfully completed my first ever re-read in terms of prose (it's long story and the series was The Mediator) and… Continue reading Raven Cycle Re-Read: The Raven Boys
