It’s Also No Secret That I Have Certain Auto-Buy Authors.

It’s no secret that I love to read. It’s also no secret that I have certain auto-buy authors. You may be wondering, “what is an auto-buy author?” An auto-buy author is an author that no matter what they sell in the market, book, merchant, or otherwise, consumers automatically buys it. Auto-buy is short for automatically buy.

My favorite authors are Mitch Albom and Holley Gerth. I have spoken about Albom before in social media and in my writing. He even answered a tweet I sent him.

But I wanted to write about which books I have read and which books I still have to read by these two authors.

Keep in mind that I will be mentioning books or devotionals that I want to read by these authors. Not necessarily short stories, blog entries or journal articles.

Mitch Albom:

I found out about Albom my senior year of high school through my English class. No, Tuesdays with Morrie was not a required reading for my class but I wish it was. Even though I don’t know how much I would’ve enjoyed it had it been a requirement. I still have that copy with some BookTuber’s signature from when I met them at the strand after some book event in New York City. That copy is over seven years old.

If I ever meet him, I will be sure to get a new copy of that book just so he could sign it (and also my old one. I am not kidding. That copy is breaking on the spine. I don’t want to damage it more).

Read Books:

Tuesdays with Morrie

Holley Gerth:

I found out about Holley at a very difficult time in my life. I was having problems with a family member and I was feeling discouraged in what direction my life was supposed to be going. A friend suggested I read her book You're Already Amazing: Embracing Who You Are, Becoming All God Created You to Be and it was such an eye-opening book.

It was definitely a “right book, right moment” situation. Immediately after I read her book I found her on social media and she is the sweetest most attentive person ever. She always answers my questions or acknowledges me in some way when I contact her. It’s great!!

I highly recommend you check them out. They both bring something completely different to the table but I have been able to learn something out of every reading. Usually, I find, that they both bring soul through their writing. I haven’t been able to find that a lot through reading. And I read a lot of books. Yes, maybe I am not reading those types of books but it’s just a statement.

Check them out and tell them I sent ya!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
