Obsessing Over Numbers on Social Media

[image error]I love my Instagram account, @whimsicalillustration. I’m not kidding, it is my favourite app for following everything I’m interested in.

Ethnocentricity of Love

I recently finished Of Love and Other Demons, by Gabriel Garcia Márquez, thanks to the recommendation of my friend, Mariana, when I caught myself frowning at the use of the word “love” in the title. I worship Garcia Márquez’s craftsmanship. I am amazed at Garcia Márquez’s ability to create a worl... Read more of this blog post »

British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
