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

Book Review: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

I know this review is coming out a few hours late, but I have been sick the last few days and really not up to blogging. Today is the first day I've felt semi-coherent. But better late than never. And I'm finally done with this book series! Yay! It's been a long journey, but I'm … Continue reading Book Review: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Lost Boys by Orson Scott Card

This is the second book I read by Orson Scott Card, the first one being Ender's Game, which I was not a big fan of. This book has been on my TBR for a bit, and it sounded really interesting. However, this book was totally different than the book synopsis promised it would be. Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Lost Boys by Orson Scott Card

Book Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

This is the second book of the Grisha Trilogy, and I recommend you read my review for the first book before you read this one. Even if I had mixed feelings about the first book, I am determined to finish this series. And this one, while it was hardly perfect, did fix some of the … Continue reading Book Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I'm pretty sure I'm one of the last people to read this book, with how big this series has been over the last few years. It's especially gotten bigger this year with the announcement of it being adapted into a TV series on Netflix, coming in April. In said April I will be forced to … Continue reading Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky

This book is an interesting one, and one that's been on my TBR for a long time. Not only is the book itself unique, but the story behind it's publication is even more interesting, if also a bit sad. Irène Némirovsky was a Jewish Ukrainian author who lived most of her life in France, converting … Continue reading Book Review: Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky

Book Review: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

It feels like forever since I have done a book review! I should do more, I know, but I feel like most of the books I read I can condense my thoughts into a paragraph and just post it on Goodreads. But this one...I have a lot of thoughts about. This is a classic I've … Continue reading Book Review: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

Book Review: The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly by Sun Mi Hwang

I happened upon this book on my recent rare visit to the library (since I never go anymore because of the disease which shall not be named), and I thought it looked adorable. Little did I know just how moving and beautiful it would be! Release: 2000 Page Count: 134 Format: Paperback Synopsis: Sprout is … Continue reading Book Review: The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly by Sun Mi Hwang
