Last month was a pretty busy one for me with college finals, but not only did all my finals go well, but I was also able to read 12 books. Even better, I had only two one and two star books, and several five star reads, which is rare for me! So, without further ado, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up April 2021
During my first degree in college, I found a lot of my teachers had an eerily similar view of literature, that for some reason nonfiction was so much important to read that fiction. In fact, most of my teachers refused to accept any fictional writing, saying nonfiction was more high brow. At the time, it … Continue reading Is Nonfiction more important than Fiction?
A couple weeks weeks ago, I was tagged on Youtube to do this challenge by Mary and Joe from Book Buds. They are such a cute Youtube channel and I highly recommend them! This tag was created by Ali over at BookBinge. Pretty much, this challenge tells you to pick out six books you want … Continue reading Quick to Judge Book Challenge
This coming week, the last week of April, will be my final learning Chinese in college. For the past two years, I've been studying this language. Before that, I was studying Korean solitary for several years as well.

However, I do like to try to keep up with authors I've enjoyed before to see if I like their new books as well. … Continue reading Books Releasing Soon by Authors I’ve Enjoyed
I discovered this book at the Goodwill a few years ago. To be honest, the only reason I picked it up was because it was an old book set in South Africa. I'm a sucker for classics set in places I don't know much about. And let me just say, I was not disappointed! Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Cry The Beloved Country
Today, April 10, is National Siblings Day! I wanted to do a fun tag in celebration of this day, but the only book tag I could find was a book tag for siblings to do, not one about siblings in books, so I decided to create my own. This was a very last minute idea...but … Continue reading Fictional Siblings Book Tag – Original
I can't believe we're already four months into 2021...and it feels just as crazy as 2020. Anyways, in March I had a very good reading month, reading a total of 17 books of various genres. Looking at the book I read this month, they were honestly all over the place. I have older books, new … Continue reading Reading Wrap-Up March, 2021
Do you ever start really thinking about a topic you're pretty sure only you care about and you know your opinion is pointless and you should be putting more effort into researching your stupid final paper for your Africa in Bondage class, but you continue to think about that topic anyway because it's important to … Continue reading Are Classics Inherently Better Than Modern Books?
