Wrapping Up 2019

Well, 2019 is finally finishing tomorrow. I was just looking back on my wrap up of last year and I had said that nothing seemed to go right in 2018. For this year, it was pretty much the opposite. Everything just seemed to go so right, for multiple reasons. Anyway, like last year, I'm used … Continue reading Wrapping Up 2019

Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

This is probably not the most fitting book to be reviewing on Christmas day, but what can I say, I like to be rebellious. While I'm opening presents and stuffing my face with pot roast and cookies, I thought you all would enjoy this ranting book review. What is more fun on Christmas day than … Continue reading Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Book Challenges Wrap-Up 2019

This year I tried to do something new with my reading, and do a few year-long book challenges. I also attempted to set some of my own personal reading goals, some of which I succeeded and others I sadly failed. If you've been reading my wrap-ups for the last few months, you'll probably know what … Continue reading Book Challenges Wrap-Up 2019

Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is another one of those authors I see everywhere and get recommended by everyone. And whenever I ask/look to see which is the first book by him I should read, pretty much everyone agrees this book. This book and its subsequent series might be categorized as urban fantasy, which I've heard kind of … Continue reading Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

The Classes I’m Taking in College: Spring, 2020

Just like last semester, I thought I would share with you the classes I'm taking spring semester in college. Even though I am a history major, they don't offer one class next semester I need to take before I can take any other history course. This seriously sucks, and means I'm taking mostly science/math courses … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College: Spring, 2020

Looking to 2020 and Blog Changes

I can't believe it's already the end of the year and 2020 is just around the corner. It seems like yesterday that I made the move from Minnesota to Ohio and then I last minute decided to go back to college...the last year has been honestly crazy for me. Crazy in many good ways. Anyway, … Continue reading Looking to 2020 and Blog Changes

Book Review: The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Volume 1)

When I read Les Miserables earlier that year, which sits at a whopping 1500 pages, I was pretty sure I probably would never read a book longer than that. Little did I know what I was getting into when I picked up this book, which sits at 700 pages...and it's the first of three volumes. … Continue reading Book Review: The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Volume 1)

Books Coming Out in 2020 I’m Excited About

There are very few new releases I genuinely get excited about, mostly because when I do it often results in disappointment. Usually I don't read a book until months or years after it comes out. However, that doesn't mean I never look forward to new releases. So today I'm going to share with you some … Continue reading Books Coming Out in 2020 I’m Excited About
