The Bookshelf

Welcome to my bookshelf, where you can find all of the weekly music, books, movies, and miscellaneous links I’ve recommended collected into one place!

If anything catches your fancy, click on it and you’ll be taken right to my short impressions. (jk jk, the links are broken until I figure out how to pull that off with the new site, forgive me 🙇)

Have fun perusing my loverly digital aisles; I hope you find something you love!
