He Can See Heaven: A Closer Look At The Origin of Christianity

The definition of a “hierophant” is, according to my trusted internet sources, “a person, especially a priest in ancient Greece, who interprets sacred mysteries or esoteric principles.” That word, although perhaps unfamiliar to many, is particularly important to know when beginning the book He Can See Heaven by J.B. Keats. Before even starting the first page, I looked up that […]

After Perfect: What It Means To Fall From The 1%

Diving in to the audiobook After Perfect by Christina McDowell was similar to diving into an actual swimming pool. Initially, I didn’t think I was going to enjoy it. The ostensible cry of “I’m too rich, it’s not fun anymore” hit me like ice-cold water, displeasing and offending me. I thought that the entire book was going to be about […]

Cinderella Has Cellulite: And Other Musings from a Last Wife

If given the chance to rate Cinderella Has Cellulite: And Other Musings from a Last Wife from boring to funny, it would surpass funny and go straight to laugh-out-loud funny!

Torn Together: Addiction & Recovery within the Restaurant Industry

When I first sat down to read Torn Together by Scott Magnuson and his wife Shaaren Pine, not only did I feel intrigued, but I also thought of myself as an ideal person to read such a book. The cover says that it is “one family’s journey through addiction, treatment & the restaurant industry” and the first page mentions that […]
