Book Review: All the Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White

I realized going over my Goodreads's list of books I read last year that I read very few books released in 2019. I only read nine total books published in 2019, and only seven of those I actually read in 2019. So my convoluted and probably confusing point is, I want to read more books … Continue reading Book Review: All the Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White

Book Review: Marley by Jon Clinch

Growing up, I was a massive fan of The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I have not only read the book multiple times, often around Christmas, but I've seen at least a dozen of the many adaptations of the book (some far better than others). So when I stumbled upon this book, which purported to … Continue reading Book Review: Marley by Jon Clinch

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1959-1950

Another month come and gone and my spring semester is in full swing. We are currently into the 1950's for my favorite book, and for this one I had to do a bit of reading before I had any for a few of these years, and I have a feeling it will only get harder … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1959-1950

Book Review: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

This is perhaps one of the most anticipated books of 2019, and a few months ago I'm pretty sure most readers were talking about it. This is the first book of Bardugo's new series, and I believe her first adult book as well (though we'll get to my thoughts on that later). I usually don't … Continue reading Book Review: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

January 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I cannot believe a new year is here and January is already over. It's been kind of a crazy month with me starting my seven classes this semester and also trying to keep up with my blog. A lot of you who I follow may have noticed me taking like a week to actually read … Continue reading January 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

I feel guilty to say that this is the first time I have ever read the Lord of the Rings. So many people love this series, and I grew up with the film series. I can almost quote the movies word-for-word...which may be concerning. However, despite all that, I have never read the books. Until … Continue reading Book Review: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Review: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

I finally read the book everyone seems to be talking about recently, especially since the short TV series adaptation last year starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant came out. I have yet to see it, but I've seen a couple trailers and it looks pretty humorous. Anyways, I wanted to read the book before I … Continue reading Book Review: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Book Review: My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

This is the third book by Daphne Du Maurier I have read in the last few months, alongside Jamaica Inn and Rebecca. The former I loved, the latter...I didn't. So I went into this book with pretty average expectations. And I was pleasantly surprised by most of this book, until the very ending. Release: 1951 … Continue reading Book Review: My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1969-1960

I am really enjoying this series, though in a couple decades I'm going to have to be reading a lot of new books to fill in the years I haven't read a single book I liked in. Anyway, for those just coming to this post, this is a series where I share my favorite book … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1969-1960

Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

So this book...it...hmm... I fully acknowledge that part of the reason I didn't like this book was because I knew nothing about it before picking it up from the library. It was released about a month ago, and I had heard of Jeff VanderMeer being an interesting writer and I randomly read it. I did … Continue reading Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer
