A Little Princess: Movie vs. Book

Like last month, when choosing which classic I was going to read was fueled by a movie.  I had an urge to watch the 1995 classic, A Little Princess.  This movie was a huge part of my childhood. My sister and I have probably seen it over fifty times, but I had never read the book.  I owned this beautiful Puffin Classic edition—that so perfectly match my Little Women and Anne of Green Gables copies (thanks Anthropologie)—so I was ready to dive into this whimsical story.

The Writing Chronicles: Episode One

My biggest problem when writing essays in school was always the beginning.  I would have all these ideas, sometimes written out in notes or already in my word document.  But as the minutes ticked on, I always came to a standstill—How do I start? How do I physically start to cohesively bring all my ideas together and put it to paper?

Favorite Authors of 2017

I read 95 books in 2017.  95 BOOKS! This was the best reading I’ve ever had.  I read diversely—both in authors and subject matter.  I branched out of my comfort zone and discovered I kind of like mysteries?  Yes, most of the books I read are Young Adult, but the atmosphere there is so inspiring.  If I made a list of my favorite books of the year it would probably be over 50 books long. So, I decided to do a list of my favorite authors I read this year instead.  The list will be in alphabetical order and some authors are listed with more than one book. Let’s get started!
