I’m Nnenna and this is my online journal where I write about the books I can’t put down, my personal style, the places I’ve traveled to, the products I love, my favorite spots in NYC, and more!

  1. I can’t believe you read all this in 2 months! How do you find the time?? I really admire that.

    I want to read the David Sedaris book — I too love anything about Americans living in Paris. Have you ever read “Paris, My Sweet”? It’s a fluffy read, but I enjoyed it.

    Also, I had no clue Steve Martin is an author! I’m sure he has an interesting perspective on seeing young people “do whatever it takes” to move up in the acting world…and that could definitely be translated into the art world.

      I don’t know- I think I just force myself to make time! About 1-1.5 years ago, I was unhappy with how little I was reading, considering I had been such a bookworm as a kid, so I made a conscious effort to read more and set specific goals on Goodreads (which I think is a great way to keep track of what I’m reading or want to read).

      I’ve never read Paris, My Sweet, but it sounds like it’s right up my alley. Thanks for the rec :) Also, I had no idea that Steve Martin was an author either until I found this book. I’m so impressed by him!

    Definitely a few I will have to try here… I really do need to allocate more time to reading.
