Book Review: Lost Boys by Orson Scott Card

This is the second book I read by Orson Scott Card, the first one being Ender's Game, which I was not a big fan of. This book has been on my TBR for a bit, and it sounded really interesting. However, this book was totally different than the book synopsis promised it would be. Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Lost Boys by Orson Scott Card

February 2021 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe February is already over...it feels like only yesterday that it started. Though I'm pretty sure I say that about every month. This month I read a total of 10 books. Unfortunately, again most of my ratings of these books were in the middle. The majority were three stars, and I had only … Continue reading February 2021 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

This is the second book of the Grisha Trilogy, and I recommend you read my review for the first book before you read this one. Even if I had mixed feelings about the first book, I am determined to finish this series. And this one, while it was hardly perfect, did fix some of the … Continue reading Book Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I'm pretty sure I'm one of the last people to read this book, with how big this series has been over the last few years. It's especially gotten bigger this year with the announcement of it being adapted into a TV series on Netflix, coming in April. In said April I will be forced to … Continue reading Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky

This book is an interesting one, and one that's been on my TBR for a long time. Not only is the book itself unique, but the story behind it's publication is even more interesting, if also a bit sad. Irène Némirovsky was a Jewish Ukrainian author who lived most of her life in France, converting … Continue reading Book Review: Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky

The Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Book Tag

I know Valentine's Day is already over, but I did this tag Saturday on my Youtube channel, so it will have to work. Mostly I did this book tag because I couldn't finish Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. But next week, I promise! So today we are doing this fun book tag. It was … Continue reading The Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Book Tag

春节快乐 (chunjie kuai le)! Happy Chinese New Year! Yesterday was the Chinese New Year. 2021 is the Year of the Ox, and so today I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Chinese books, both classic and modern.

The Philosopher Book Tag

It seems like forever that this book tag was on my list of tags to do. For two years, in fact! I saw it originally on Zezee with Books blog, and it was originally created on Booktube by Betweenlinesandlife. I have been highly interested in philosophy for years (there was even a point that I … Continue reading The Philosopher Book Tag

January 2021 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe January is already over! This month I read 11 books, which isn't bad considering how busy I am in school currently. However, I was a little disappointed that the majority of books I read (8 of the 11) were three star reads. I suppose that's better than reading really bad books, but … Continue reading January 2021 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

It feels like forever since I have done a book review! I should do more, I know, but I feel like most of the books I read I can condense my thoughts into a paragraph and just post it on Goodreads. But this one...I have a lot of thoughts about. This is a classic I've … Continue reading Book Review: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
