Adventures of a Bibliophile

Game of Thrones is over. After ten years of us obsessing over who would end up on the iron throne, we finally have an answer. Well, kind of. But NO SPOILERS (though I will say I’m actually in the minority who liked the final episode), so let’s just talk about books instead. Because even though […]

For the first draft, I prefer handwriting with a pencil and paper. The most important reason for this is that I am more creative and productive with this method. The second reason is that I can avoid distractions when writing because when sitting behind a computer, notifications are really disturbing. Even if I turn the […]

I haven’t been sleeping well lately. And by lately I mean I haven’t slept well in the past 8 months! Now that my kiddo is only waking once to eat through the night (once she really gets to sleep that is) I feel like I’m awake more now than before. This is all completely okay […]

Chilling barefoot alongside Beanie Feldstein on a chaise in her bedroom at the Viceroy L’Ermitage hotel in Beverly Hills, I can clearly see why the actress has become cinema’s go-to best friend. If gazing at the 25-year-old’s infectious smile inspires a cozy familiarity, it’s probably in part because you’re hungover from her quippy, comic turn as Saoirse Ronan’s lovable BFF […]
