Review: “I Was Here” by Gayle Forman

There are some people who do not and may never need a book like “I Was Here.”

This book is not for them. In a lot of ways, this book wasn’t for me. It is a stark reminder of my privilege. Cody lives with her mom, a woman she doesn’t even call “mom” and who …

    Why did Ron have Charlie’s old wand?

    So this week, the HP Moment of the Week topic was “Which Death Eater Would You Be?” and that’s not really a topic that’s fun or interesting to think about (at least for me). I don’t want to consider all the ways the various named Death Eaters were evil and then pick which one …

    Thoughtfulness (so far)

    Back in January, I decided to do the thing where people picked a word and try to live their lives according to that word for the year. I chose thoughtfulness, because I wanted 2015 to be a year of change for me, but not change just for the sake of change. I wanted to …
