Update: Reading, Writing, and Online Shopping

Hello everybody! I hope everyone is healthy and safe right now and have stayed sane during quarantine. During quarantine, I finished my last semester at Waubonsee Community College and will be graduating with my associates degree (although there won't be an actual graduation). I will be moving on to get my Bachelor's at Trinity Christian College in English in the fall. After I finished this semester school, however, I have been catching up on some reading! So I'm hoping in the next week or two I will have another book review out. I know I haven't been reviewing a lot of books apart from Celebrate Lit, but I am hoping that will change soon. Celebrate Lit reading has been taking up most of my time, but I also want to crack open this huge book of stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald that's been sitting on my shelf for a few months now. Also during this quarantine, I have been doing a lot of writing! This previous semester at Waubonsee, I took a creative writing class.

And she did not disappoint with Storing Up Trouble. It’s a fun book, filled with interesting characters, who seem to always land themselves in trouble. It’s also filled with plotlines such as crime and the women’s suffrage movement, which I thought was a nice addition. Norman Nesbit is an eccentric character. A brilliant
