    Disappointing Books of 2015

    I want to preface by saying that I don’t think any of these books are inherently bad.  They are ALL well written or they obviously wouldn’t have been published.  Really, it is about the high expectations I set for each book and feeling that the books were flat, confusing, or predictable. The Wicked And The Divine There is a lot of hype around this graphic novel series and I totally had high expectations for it because of that.  My reasons for disliking this book is simple: I couldn’t follow the plot.  It is confusing from the first page and I could never really figure out what is happening.  I gave…

    Weekly Menu || Vol.004

    It has been a very long time since I last wrote a weekly menu.  I make one every week for our family, leaving me with little excuse for not posting it here like I’ve wanted.  Writing it here gives me an archive to look through without having the clutter of keeping it in a notebook.  It can also inspire others if they happen to come across it. Anyway, I think it is time for more consistency and today is my attempt for just that. Just one note before I list it.  I’ve been preparing less time consuming meals lately.  I’ve been a little burnt out with elaborate recipes and meals,…
