I Got Ads on My Blog!

You may have noticed that there are ads now on my blog, probably to the right of this sentence if you are reading it on a laptop. This was a surprise to me. For those who don't know, WordPress has this thing called WordAds that you can get on your website. For more expensive website … Continue reading I Got Ads on My Blog!

Korean Movie Review: #Alive (new Train to Busan?)

Movie poster from Asianwiki I love zombie movies, and I'm also a massive fan of Korean movies/dramas, so when the two are combined into one film, you know I have to watch it. #Alive (#살아있다 in Korean, pronounced "Salaissda," meaning "live") is a 2020 Korean movie following a young man stuck in his apartment when … Continue reading Korean Movie Review: #Alive (new Train to Busan?)

The Dark Academia Book Tag

As it turns out, I have liked dark academia for years without even knowing it existed. I love Shakespeare and ancient philosophy. I like vintage fashion and Oxford aesthetic. I love old books, and skulls, and quills. My point is I've been following the dark academia aesthetic without even knowing it. For those of you … Continue reading The Dark Academia Book Tag

Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

I discovered Fredrik Backman the way most people did, through A Man Called Ove. I read it mostly because of the hype, but absolutely fell in love with it. If I had one criticism of that book, however, it would be Backman's unconventional choice of organization, as he spends much time jumping from modern to … Continue reading Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1889-1880

I may be slightly biased for this decade in history, both because it features my favorite bustle for women in Victorian England and because it is the decade that the infamous Jack the Ripper went on his killing spree. But for books, I was surprised how little I had read from this decade. But ah, … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1889-1880

Book Review: American Scripture by Pauline Maier

This is the first book review I have for my school books this semester in college. It's definitely a dense nonfiction read, and one I had mixed feelings about more because of the writing than the content itself, which is very in-depth. So let's go. Release: 1997 Page Count: 336 Format: Paperback Synopsis: Maier, a … Continue reading Book Review: American Scripture by Pauline Maier

August 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm really happy with my reading for August 2020. I ended up reading 19 books, which is great, but considering at the end of the month I started college and I have a feeling that my amount of book reading will drop down drastically for this coming month. I read a wide variety of books … Continue reading August 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: Axiom’s End by Lindsay Ellis

I usually avoid Youtuber's books, simply because they all tend to be autobiographies of twenty-something-year-olds (I really doubt they've done enough yet to warrent an autobiography). But I do love seeing Youtubers who come out with actual novels. I've watched Lindsay Ellis on and off, though I've never actively followed her channel. However, this book … Continue reading Book Review: Axiom’s End by Lindsay Ellis

Author Taste Test: Danielle Steel

This is my second blog post of this series where I taste test a famous author's books. A couple months ago I read a few of Nora Roberts's and let's just say I was a little disappointed. I was going to go ahead and take on Karin Slaughter this month to mix up the genres, … Continue reading Author Taste Test: Danielle Steel

Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown (an unpopular opinion)

Look at me, finally reviewing a book which isn't a classic. I'm so proud of myself. Anyways, I picked this book up for two reasons. One, I mean, look at the gorgeous cover. I admit it, I'm a sucker for beautiful covers. Second, because this is a fantasy book based around West African folklore. I … Continue reading Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A.
