Bonfire, by Krysten Ritter: a Book Review

I’ll be honest, I was perhaps a little unfairly skeptical of Krysten Ritter’s Bonfire. I didn’t want to believe that a glamorous movie star was capable of crafting a novel that I would enjoy. I was jealous of Krysten Ritter’s seemingly exciting life and her ability to somehow have the two careers I’ve always dreamed of.

I just finished watching Mad Men in its’ entirety for the third time in my life, and I can say that it is still my favorite show in the history of television. That is to say, my personal history of watching television. After I finished the last episode, I had what I’m calling a “Mad Men hangover.” I couldn’t think about anything else for a good two days, couldn’t commit to a new book or binging yet another show on Netflix. Luckily for me, Mathew Weiner, the creator of Mad Men for those of you not in the know, published his first novel, Heather, the Totality, this past November.

Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong: a Book Review

Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong is one of my favorite books of 2017. It’s a novel that is made all the more impressive by considering that it is the author’s debut. It is a witty, poignant examination of what happens when things are falling apart and how to find your footing as you’re working your way through it. Continue reading “Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong: a Book Review”
