Totally Didn’t Book Tag

Today is my first day of classes, and so I thought it would be great to do an entirely unrelated book tag, mostly because you guys are probably sick of me talking about college. This tag was created a couple months ago by Youtube channel BookswithEmilyFox, and it looked really interesting and unique to me. … Continue reading Totally Didn’t Book Tag

The Classes I’m Taking in College Fall, 2019+Books

I know what you're thinking: "Stop talking about your college and get back to your reading blog." Well, I'm sorry, but with two days left before classes start, it's pretty much all I'm thinking of. I have even slowed down my reading a bit in preparation. However, don't worry, for the next few weeks I … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College Fall, 2019+Books

Book review: Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo

Why do I enjoy inflicting pain on myself? Why did I think it was a good idea to read one of the most famous tragedies in history? Never have I been more frustrated than in reading Romeo and Juliet. It's probably my own fault, but this book has been on my TBR for so many … Continue reading Book review: Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo

Things I’m Not Looking Forward To In College

A couple days ago, I did a post on Things I'm Looking Forward To In College, and this is the opposite post of that. As of this post going on, I have exactly one week until classes begin, and I'm excited (though also a little terrified). However, as I mentioned in my last post, there … Continue reading Things I’m Not Looking Forward To In College

Things I’m Looking Forward To In College

Since I'm going to be starting college in a little over a week, you should probably expect to see many more college-themed blog posts. Probably because my mind will be on college, so it will make keeping up with my blog posts much easier if I don't have to think about two things at once. … Continue reading Things I’m Looking Forward To In College

Book Review: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I went into this book knowing two things about it: it was originally written in French, and it was about a little prince. That's about it. Yes, I know, but I tend to avoid reading much about a book before I read it, so I can perceive the story as I read the words without … Continue reading Book Review: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010

So today I'm starting a new series on my blog. I will be counting back my favorite book published in one year, starting from 2019, and going back until I run out of books I've read published in that year. I've seen a few blogs doing this, but usually it is only looking at the … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010

Book Review: Jane by April Lindner

Yes, I did succumb to reading yet another classic book retelling, this one of Jane Eyre. And yes, I regret everything. So, this book has been on my TBR probably since I kept keeping a TBR notebook. As indicated by my last week's review of a Les Mis retelling, I am obsessed with reiterations of … Continue reading Book Review: Jane by April Lindner

My Thoughts on Cliffhangers

In a recent book I read and reviewed, Sky Without Stars, I found myself noticing that many of the chapters ended in cliffhangers. While I'm not adverse to having an occasional cliffhanger, I found the constant use of them in that book to be a bit tiring. The book got me thinking about cliffhangers in … Continue reading My Thoughts on Cliffhangers
