IMG_0053

Recently, I moved out onto my own. It’s wonderful, but the biggest gripe has been finances – where to cut costs in order to maintain it on my own.

What was first to go? My below Indigo-Chapters bookstore runs.

What took it’s place was something I hadn’t been inside of in over 12 years – the library.

I needed a really good book to bring me out of my reading funk. Nothing too harsh, nothing too hectic, nothing too serious, nothing too fluffy. Sophia Kinsella’s MY NOT SO PERFECT LIFE fit the bill to a perfect “T”.

Cults are fascinating to me. With documentaries like HOLY HELL thrusting cult fascination back into the spotlight, a new novel entitled THE GIRLS by Emma Cline puts another interesting spin on ‘cult’ life. While it’s not without it’s fault, it’s a solid easy read.
