Book Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

When someone’s been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it’s like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you’re just…

Book Review: The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare
