Read This Retelling, Instead of That One

I wasn't quite sure what to title this post, so this is what I'm going with. I love reading retellings, whether they are based on fairytales or classic novels. Saying that, most of them are soooo bad. But not all of them. Some of them, hidden under dusty piles of pages, are really good. So … Continue reading Read This Retelling, Instead of That One

Book Review: The Good Earth by Pearl. S. Buck

So, my first week back in college has been a bit hectic, especially since it rained most of Monday and Tuesday (so lots of running in the rain between classes), but in between the freaking out over syllabi and all I'll have to do this semester, I read this book. This classic is one I've … Continue reading Book Review: The Good Earth by Pearl. S. Buck

Totally Didn’t Book Tag

Today is my first day of classes, and so I thought it would be great to do an entirely unrelated book tag, mostly because you guys are probably sick of me talking about college. This tag was created a couple months ago by Youtube channel BookswithEmilyFox, and it looked really interesting and unique to me. … Continue reading Totally Didn’t Book Tag

The Classes I’m Taking in College Fall, 2019+Books

I know what you're thinking: "Stop talking about your college and get back to your reading blog." Well, I'm sorry, but with two days left before classes start, it's pretty much all I'm thinking of. I have even slowed down my reading a bit in preparation. However, don't worry, for the next few weeks I … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College Fall, 2019+Books

Book review: Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo

Why do I enjoy inflicting pain on myself? Why did I think it was a good idea to read one of the most famous tragedies in history? Never have I been more frustrated than in reading Romeo and Juliet. It's probably my own fault, but this book has been on my TBR for so many … Continue reading Book review: Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo

Things I’m Not Looking Forward To In College

A couple days ago, I did a post on Things I'm Looking Forward To In College, and this is the opposite post of that. As of this post going on, I have exactly one week until classes begin, and I'm excited (though also a little terrified). However, as I mentioned in my last post, there … Continue reading Things I’m Not Looking Forward To In College

Things I’m Looking Forward To In College

Since I'm going to be starting college in a little over a week, you should probably expect to see many more college-themed blog posts. Probably because my mind will be on college, so it will make keeping up with my blog posts much easier if I don't have to think about two things at once. … Continue reading Things I’m Looking Forward To In College

Book Review: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I went into this book knowing two things about it: it was originally written in French, and it was about a little prince. That's about it. Yes, I know, but I tend to avoid reading much about a book before I read it, so I can perceive the story as I read the words without … Continue reading Book Review: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010

So today I'm starting a new series on my blog. I will be counting back my favorite book published in one year, starting from 2019, and going back until I run out of books I've read published in that year. I've seen a few blogs doing this, but usually it is only looking at the … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010
