Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

On the rare occasion I will read a Middle Grade book, and 9 out of 10 times, I will really enjoy it. With YA novels, the chances are usually as low as 3 out of 10, so it makes me wonder why I don't read more Middle Grade books. Anyway, I spotted this book a … Continue reading Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

5 Weeks, 5 Tomes: Week 1 Update

So, it's been one week since I started this challenge (one I created myself on impulse). And things have been...rocky. I blame Thanksgiving and sickness.  I started Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky first, probably because I thought it would be the most challenging. And I'm currently only 170 pages out of 521. That's pretty … Continue reading 5 Weeks, 5 Tomes: Week 1 Update

Bookish Thanksgiving Tag

I know, I know, I'm two days late, but I really wanted to do a post devoted to Thanksgiving. I think it's a super important holiday which, like every other holiday in America, has kind of been turned into shopping and eating. In America, we associate Thanksgiving with the first Thanksgiving where the pilgrims and … Continue reading Bookish Thanksgiving Tag

Photo Friday Instead of Black Friday…

Happy thanksgiving for everyone in America! I hate Black Friday. You get up absurdly early (now it starts on Thanksgiving, I suppose), go shopping at overpriced stores, and have to deal with real people (I'm an introvert). Thus, I opt to stay home and look at nature a bit! So, here's a picture of some … Continue reading Photo Friday Instead of Black Friday…

Book Review: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

This book...this book...just why? If you are a regular follower of my blog, you probably read my mostly positive review of the movie released based on this book: Bel Canto. I really enjoyed the movie, so of course I was looking forward to reading the book it was based on. But let's just say that, … Continue reading Book Review: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

Authors I Really Want to Read More

I have a massive TBR, which seems to be a common problem with a lot of readers. Usually, it's the case of not having enough time to keep up with all the great books. But with me, I'm the type of reader who is, well, a bit flighty. I jump from genre to genre, author … Continue reading Authors I Really Want to Read More

Book Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

There are some books I read because I love the author and other books I get because I like the premise. And then there's books like this one, that I read just because I like the cover. It is a rather shallow reasoning, but, what can I say, I'm an impulse reader. I'm usually against … Continue reading Book Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
