Dorothy Must Die Series Rant Review

Sigh...this is a review that I feel I have to do but one I really don't want to do. I really wanted to love this series, because I enjoyed the first book so much. If you want to hear all my positive thoughts for the first book, check out my book review on it that … Continue reading Dorothy Must Die Series Rant Review

Book Review: Walden by Henry David Thoreau

I have been wanting to read this book for years, and I have owned my copy for at least 10 years. On one hand, I was excited to finally get around the reading it. On the other hand, I really, really didn't like it. And I am aware that my opinion will be very unpopular... … Continue reading Book Review: Walden by Henry David Thoreau

Book Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I've talked about in the past how much of a sucker I am for classic retellings. So when I saw this for $1 at my local book thrift store, I had to pick it up. I mean, it's a dark retelling of The Wizard of Oz, which I grew up with in both book and … Continue reading Book Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Reading Wrap-up June, 2021

I can't believe we're already halfway done with the year. For those who are American, Happy belated 4th of July! I know I'm still recovering from mosquito bites from watching fireworks outdoors. Last month I really got into reading, finishing a total of 19 books. And for the most part I enjoyed them all, even … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up June, 2021

Book Review: The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren

I don't know why I've been in the mood to read romance (maybe it's the summer beachy feel, not sure). Just after Christmas, I read Lauren's other book, In a Holidaze. It's a Groundhog's Day type story with a Christmasy, romantic twist. While it wasn't a perfect book and I never felt a lot of … Continue reading Book Review: The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren

Book Review: People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry

It seems like forever since I've written a full book review for this blog. I really should get back to writing them, as they take less of my time then a lot of the longer posts I've been doing recently. So I picked up this book, which is a recent release, because I was really … Continue reading Book Review: People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry

Author Taste Test: John Green (unpopular Opinions)

It seems like quite a while since I've done an author taste test, but with me out of school for the summer, I'm hoping to do more of these. This last week, while I was still recovering from the disease which shall not be named (yes, I did have it, turns out), I read three … Continue reading Author Taste Test: John Green (unpopular Opinions)

Book Review: Cry The Beloved Country

I discovered this book at the Goodwill a few years ago. To be honest, the only reason I picked it up was because it was an old book set in South Africa. I'm a sucker for classics set in places I don't know much about. And let me just say, I was not disappointed! Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Cry The Beloved Country

Reading Recent Releases – bugs, blizzards, and robots

Every few months, I go through a phase of wanting to read recent releases, despite having thousands of books on my TBR I should be reading. In the last couple weeks, I've read 5 recent releases and I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on them. In a sense, this will be … Continue reading Reading Recent Releases – bugs, blizzards, and robots

Book Review: These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

I feel like I've been coming out with so many book reviews recently. I promise, next week there will be no book reviews. Anyways, I wasn't planning to review this book, but I had a lot of thoughts about it, so here we go. Release: Nov. 2020 Page Count: 449 Format: Audiobook Synopsis: Set in … Continue reading Book Review: These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong
