Book Review: Ophelia by Lisa M. Klein

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ll probably have heard me mention my great love of Shakespeare. If you gave me that ultimatum to choose one author that I could read for the rest of my life, it would be he. Back when I was a teenager, I loved reading modern retellings of … Continue reading Book Review: Ophelia by Lisa M. Klein

The Book Life Tag

I’m not sure where this book tag originated, but I discovered it here. And no one tagged me. In fact, I really wouldn’t want to be tagged in any book tag. If I want to write something, I do it anyway. So no tagging to or from me. But this one looked like so much … Continue reading The Book Life Tag

Book Review: Death Comes As the End by Agatha Christie

When most think of Agatha Christie, a cheeky Belgium detective with an egg-shaped head or a sweet old lady who knits too much and has a knack for solving strange deaths comes to mind. The first book I read by Agatha Christie was Death on the Nile back when I was twelve or thirteen and … Continue reading Book Review: Death Comes As the End by Agatha Christie

Wattpad vs. Fictionpress: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

A while back (in the couple months last year when I was doing Daily Thoughts), I talked briefly about my experiences on some book sharing websites like Wattpad and Fictionpress. But I felt that a quick post about it really wasn’t enough to get all my thoughts onto the page. So I’ve finally got around … Continue reading Wattpad vs. Fictionpress: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Book Review: A Zombies Christmas Carol by Jim McCann

I discovered this book a couple months ago when I was reading another blogger’s review of it and immediately I had to put it on my TBR. Although I rarely enjoy comics in general, I happen to love modern, darker twists on classics, whether it is the gruesome Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or the … Continue reading Book Review: A Zombies Christmas Carol by Jim McCann

Books I’m Excited for February, 2018

The Bookworm by Mitch Silver Genre: Fiction, Adult, Historical, Mystery, Thriller Release Date: February 6, 2018 Honestly, I was interested to this book purely due to its name, but when I read the plot it sounded actually good. Though I am slightly getting sick of historical fiction set during WWII (can’t writers write about a … Continue reading Books I’m Excited for February, 2018

Book Review: The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett

This book is the first book of Pratchett’s infamous fantasy series Discworld, and the third book I have read in this series (following Soul Music and Guards! Guards!). It was originally published 1983 and is Pratchett’s first full published book. The story revolves around a pretty useless wizard Rincewind who offers his services as a … Continue reading Book Review: The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett

Korean Drama Review: The Master’s Sun

Way back in 2013, I missed this drama coming out, which is completely ironic considering I watched both the dramas occupying the same time slot as this drama on SBS before and after (I Hear Your Voice before and The Heirs after). And yet I somehow missed this one until now—nearly four years later. Which … Continue reading Korean Drama Review: The Master’s Sun

What’s the Point of New Year’s Resolutions?

It’s a new year. And with every New Year comes the dreaded New Year’s Resolutions. I feel as if, at least in American society, there is almost this pressure that you have to make at least one resolution as the year begins. I grew up in a house where New Year Resolutions weren’t really a … Continue reading What’s the Point of New Year’s Resolutions?
