Book Review: Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

I have been wanting to read any of Brandon Sanderson's books for months, since I watched his lecture series on writing (if you are a writer, I highly recommend you check it out on Youtube). My sister likes his books and kindly lent me this one and the Mistborn series. Months later, I finally got … Continue reading Book Review: Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Book Review: The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells

I was supposed to read this book by Halloween, which tells you just how far behind I am in my reading. Anyway...I have been wanting to read more of Wells' books. I still have to read The Time Machine and War of the Worlds, both of which I hear are really great. However, I decided … Continue reading Book Review: The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells

Book Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

This is the first book of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and a series I've been wanting to read for years. So many people have compared it to the Harry Potter series, which is one of my favorite book series of all time, and yet I never read it growing up. I suppose … Continue reading Book Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Book Review: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance

I've seen this book around a lot, and was a bit curious to read it, but it wasn't until I read Diana's review from Ideas on Papyrus that I knew I had to read it. And, I will say, I wasn't disappointed at all. This book is absolute incredible, and one I could easily recommend … Continue reading Book Review: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance

Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

It seems like a long time since I read a YA fantasy, and even longer since I actually liked one. Going into this book, I basically knew only two things about it: first, it is about a heist and, second, it's set in the same universe as Bardugo's other series Shadow and Bone, which I … Continue reading Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: The Institute by Stephen King

This is my second book by Stephen King that I read this month, and also his latest published. It is also a perfect book to review the day before Halloween. Which makes sense that I would read it next, because Pet Cemetery was one of his earlier ones. While I wouldn't categorize this book as … Continue reading Book Review: The Institute by Stephen King

Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

I was introduced to this book when the movie came out 2018, starring Sandra Bullock. I heard the movie was really good and after watching an analysis of the film, I decided to pick up this book to read it myself. Because let's face it, I rarely watch movies and read lots of books. However, … Continue reading Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

This is the third (or possibly more) book by Stephen King I have attempted to read, following The Shining and It. I was able to finish neither of them, DNFing both of them (The Shining was too frusterating, and It was too slow-moving). My point is, I don't have the best track record with Stephen … Continue reading Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Book Review: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

I thought this book was a bad idea to read during October, because I'm trying to read mostly horror books, but little did I know how horrific this book would be. I read this book because it's on pretty much every list of top books to read in your lifetime. In fact, I accidentally put … Continue reading Book Review: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
