And the Review is In!

Okay, folks.

I mentioned previously how I was reading The Goldfinch but hadn’t yet finished, so I am fulfilling my word of my final review.

Like I said in the first review, I’m a little late to the game when it comes to this novel, and I definitely regret the fact that I waited for so long! I finished it in eight days. Not bad, right?! It involved lots of late nights and dedication, but it was well worth it.

I already mentioned how Donna Tartt has a beautiful writing style that makes you fall in love with the characters without realizing it. With her extreme details and excellent description of emotion (including depression, which I personally identified with), it takes you to a whole new level of empathizing with the characters. Let me add the fact that I teared up, okay, I cried, which is very rare for me to do with novels since I was an English major and am a tad critical with certain aspects.

It is no wonder this book won a Pulitzer Prize.

Have you read it yet?! What are your thoughts?!

Happy escaping into pages!

Magic on Fridays

I hope you all are having a fantastic Friday! Even though I still have my entire work day ahead of me. I get coffee from my favorite shop on Fridays, a little “go me! I made it though the week!” Reward. When I walked in, they asked me if I wanted a free cup of coffee! Uhhhh yeah! And now I can go to work with a happier attitude!

What is your Friday routine?!

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!
