Grammar: Know Your Sh*t or Know You’re Sh*t by Joanne Adams
As I was walking to the checkout at Barnes & Noble, this book’s red cover and amusing title immediately caught my attention. Using a grammar pun, Joanna Adams’s book invites the grammar nerd, and those wishing to brush up on their grammar, to peruse her book for helpful tips and tricks.

Truly Madly Guilty gets the Kidman and Witherspoon Treatment
The buzz about Big Little Lies has been hard to ignore over the past month or so–I’ve only heard great things. While I wasn’t able to watch the series, and I haven’t read the book, I did read an article revealing that Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who both produced and starred in Big Little Lies, have also picked up the production rights to Liane Moriarty’s new novel, Truly Madly Guilty. The article claims that it wasn’t clear whether this novel would be a limited series like Big Little Lies or a movie.
Regarding my personal reading–I’m thinking about doing an entire reread of Harry Potter. I can’t remember the last I did it and it just seems time!
