Book Review: Train Man

I wish I could remember how I came about this book because it's so out of the ordinary from my usual genre. This entire novel is basically an online forum, which was a pretty cool concept. This man goes onto an online forum to ask for advice about this woman he's met. He has zero [...]

Book Review: Norwegian Wood

I was not expecting Norwegian Wood to be the type of book that it was. My high school teacher referred this book to me to read at the end of my senior year, so I was expecting it to be a book that would enlighten me and inspire me before I went to college. Funny enough [...]

This book was a quick read and [...]

"The Crossroads of Should and Must" is an inspirational book that tells us reasons why we should choose the things we mustdo rather than the things [...]

Book Review: Making Habits, Breaking Habits

Original blog post written on the BookPal Blog. I personally prefer self-improvement books over books that teach you how to accomplish something in X amount of days. (i.e. How to shed 5 lbs in 10 days, Hot to be a millionaire by the time you're 30, etc.) I picked up "Making Habits, Breaking Habits" to find some inspiration to [...]
