Book Review: The Wilderness of Ruin: A Tale of Madness, Fire, and the Hunt for America’s Youngest Serial Killer by Roseanne Montillo

When it comes to Halloween (and October in general), there are two types of books I crave to read: horror novels, and nonfiction true crime books, especially those about serial killers. So it makes sense why I picked up this book. Like the majority of famous serial killers, I've heard of Jesse Pomeroy before, though … Continue reading Book Review: The Wilderness of Ruin: A Tale of Madness, Fire, and the Hunt for America’s Youngest Serial Killer by Roseanne Montillo

Book Haul #7

It has been almost three months since my last book haul (in July) and since then I have accumulated more books (is anyone surprised, because I'm not).

September 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Just ignored that I'm working like thirteen hour days to just keep up with classes, and I'm used to working ahead. This semester is madness, and it is mostly because of being entirely online. … Continue reading September 2020 Reading Wrap-up
