Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown (an unpopular opinion)

Look at me, finally reviewing a book which isn't a classic. I'm so proud of myself. Anyways, I picked this book up for two reasons. One, I mean, look at the gorgeous cover. I admit it, I'm a sucker for beautiful covers. Second, because this is a fantasy book based around West African folklore. I … Continue reading Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A.

Books for My College Classes Fall 2020

As school restarts for me this month online, I always look forward to the books I'm assigned to read. Since most of my classes this semester are historical, I have a lot of amazing looking historical nonfiction books to read. One of my classes, Survey to Communication Research, does not require any books, but for … Continue reading Books for My College Classes Fall 2020

Book Review: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

It seems like I have been reviewing a lot of classic books recently. I must be in a classic mood, or I'm just reading a lot to keep up with my "Favorite Books of the Year" series. Either way, this is a book that has sat on my bookshelf for months, and on my TBR … Continue reading Book Review: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

The Classes I’m Taking in College: Fall, 2020

In exactly 9 days, Fall semester at my college will be starting. College for me has absolutely been a roller coaster this year, courtesy of our good friend "virus who shall not be named." I started spring semester with seven classes, including a heavy science and lab course which I was not looking forward to. … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College: Fall, 2020

Book Review: Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

I'm ashamed to say I've never had a great interest to read this book. I have watched two different adaptations and I've hated both of them. Heathcliff and Catherine are both horrible human beings in my opinion and the romance was way too idealized for my taste. However, this is such a famous classic, and … Continue reading Book Review: Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1899-1890

And finally we are leaving the 20th century behind and traveling back into the 19th. It also happens to be my favorite century to learn about historically, especially with the Victorian Era in England and mass travel and exploration abroad. But if this is the first part of this series you read, here's a list … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1899-1890

Book Review: The Europeans by Henry James

This is the first book I have ever read by Henry James, which surprises me because he's kind of a big classic author, best known for books like The Turn of the Screw and The Portrait of a Lady. However, this one is apparently one of his most famous ones too and considering how much … Continue reading Book Review: The Europeans by Henry James

July 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I cannot believe I'm already wrapping up July and we're halfway through 2020. What a year it has been for everything. I hope you're all staying safe and healthy during this pretty scary time. Anyway, this month I really got into reading and ended up finishing twenty-three books, which is really impressive considering my average … Continue reading July 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Mid Year Book Freakout Tag: 2020

This is a tag which goes around Booktube and reading blogs every year, and I did it last year. Check that one out if you feel like it. Anyways, this tag was created by two creators over on Youtube, but I can only find the co-creater Earl Grey Books's video. I like doing this tag … Continue reading Mid Year Book Freakout Tag: 2020
