Throwback Book Review: Cecelia and Kate by Patricia C. Wrede & Caroline Stevermer

Have you ever wanted to read a series which combines the magical humor of Howl's Moving Castle and the romantic Regency of Jane Austen? Well, if so, this series is for you! I fell in love with this series just around the time the third book was published (so around 2006 or 2007), which means … Continue reading Throwback Book Review: Cecelia and Kate by Patricia C. Wrede & Caroline Stevermer

Book Review: Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier

I feel like I've been starting every book review recently with, "I've been wanting to read this book for forever, and I finally did!" And this is yet another book which falls into this category. However, in my defense, I'm working really hard this year on decreasing my ever-increasing TBR (it's a constant struggle!). Daphne … Continue reading Book Review: Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier

Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (unpopular review)

Why is it whenever I read the most popular books coming out, I always end up hating them? I have heard universally good things about Celeste Ng's books. I was debating reading this one or her debut novel Everything I Never Told You, but I decided on this one because I read several people saying … Continue reading Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (unpopular review)

Book Review: Hiroshima Diary by Michihiko Hachiya

If you haven't noticed, I've been writing a lot of book reviews lately and I apologize for the lack of diverse posts. I've been super busy, and yet the one thing I always have time for is reading. Besides, writing book reviews are the easiest posts for me to do, so for the next month … Continue reading Book Review: Hiroshima Diary by Michihiko Hachiya

St. Patrick’s Day Book Tag

For those who don't know, tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. I love anything Irish, whether it is classic Celtic music or Irish food like Irish Lamb Stew and soda bread. Plus, I so badly want to visit Ireland someday. So it seems perfect to do this book tag today. It was originally created by YouTube … Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Book Tag

Book Review: Popol Vuh

For years, I have enjoyed reading about mythology from around the world. Whether it is Ancient Greek and Roman myths or the stories of Chinese and Japanese Gods, or the ancient Celts origin stories, I loved it all. But the one place I haven't really read any myths about is South America. The problem with … Continue reading Book Review: Popol Vuh

Book Review: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

I saw the movie adaptation of this book when it first came out and while it was a little outrageous, I loved the casting choices and the hilarious jokes. My only complaint was the ending was a cliched, boring mess, but most of the movie was fun. Since then, I'm been hoping to find time … Continue reading Book Review: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Book Review: Orphan X by Greg Andrew Hurwitz

It looks like this week will be completely filled with book reviews again. Today's is a thriller. Now, thrillers and I have never been fond companions. I've tried to enjoy thrillers, but ultimately I have disliked (or at least not liked) pretty much every one I have read. The only ones which break this mold … Continue reading Book Review: Orphan X by Greg Andrew Hurwitz
