Whole30

Hey friends! This post is a break from the usual bookish content and more about an additional sort of health in addition to the intellectual wellness of reading! I’ve been taking part of the Whole30 program a few times this year and am guest posting about my experience on Band of Runners! Check it out to see what it’s all about and how I got started – including a sample menu and recipes!

Don’t worry, I won’t make this switch 😉

Book Club: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

What other ending could we imagine? There are infinite possibilities, as there are infinite multiverses. For most of us, we were hesitant on a science fiction book as our pick this month. However, we were pleasantly surprised by how mind-blowing and still relate-able the story-line was. My head hurt thinking of all the avenues and understanding that all of our actions and choices can change the fate of ourselves and those around us. In a way, it makes us appreciate our lives that much more. Thinking of the alternate universes that Jason finds himself in based on his emotions is utterly terrifying!

Snap Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Title: Fangirl

My rating: 4/5

Synopsis:

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.
Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…
But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.
Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
