The Miniaturist Review – Returning Books To My College Professor Part 2

I graduated from college and moved into a new house with my boyfriend this week.

The Goldfinch, Daredevil, and As I Lay Dying

I'm probably one of about twenty people who hasn't already read The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt yet. I've managed to avoid all the discussions and articles about the book for the better part of two semesters. I'm kind of proud of that. With the semester winding down,…
