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

This seriously sucks, and means I'm taking mostly science/math courses … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College: Spring, 2020

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
