Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

I have read a couple other retellings of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, and I have not found one yet that I really liked. And yet this one might just have broken that stigma I have against Jane Eyre retellings. Yes, it's not perfect and a bit of a mess, but I found myself laughing … Continue reading Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

March 2020 Reading Wrap-up

What a month it has been! It's crazy to think that just a month ago I was in school as normal, and now I'm quarantined at home doing my college classes over the web and rarely ever leaving my house (which is no problem for me, because I love staying home). With that, you would … Continue reading March 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Gillian Flynn is one of those authors I've been wanting to read for years. I feel like she kind of exploded with Gone Girl, and everyone was talking about her a few years ago. The only problem with reading that book is that, because it's been so popular, I've had pretty much everything in that … Continue reading Book Review: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1949-1940

I have been really enjoying this series so far, but I am getting to a point where I'm having to read a few books for each new post, and I assume it's going to get a whole lot worse as the decades continue. I'm hoping to continue putting up one of these posts a month, … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1949-1940

Book Review: Lord of the Flies by William Golding

I feel like this is one of those books that most people are told they should read, whether in school or just in general, but one that a lot of people don't like. In fact, I don't know anyone in my personal life who has read it and liked it. However, I wanted to read … Continue reading Book Review: Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Coronavirus and College

I was going to come out with a book review today, but with all the madness of the last week, I wanted to give you a brief update on me concerning the COVID-19 virus, commonly called the Coronavirus. As of Tuesday evening, my college in Ohio sent out an email that all in-person classes will … Continue reading Coronavirus and College

Book Review: The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

It's been a while since I read a thriller I truly enjoyed, especially when that said book does so many things I usually don't like in books. And it did it right. This book has quickly gone to the top of the list of books I've read in 2020 so far. I discovered it completely … Continue reading Book Review: The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

If you missed my last week's post, I announced a seven day read-a-thon over my spring break this past week from Saturday to Friday. My main goal was to read seven books, and my secondary hope was to read 7 books I already owned. I almost succeeded in one of those. I ended up not … Continue reading Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up
