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

Book Review: Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

This is the second book in the last couple months I've read by Brandon Sanderson, the first one being Elantris. I absolutely loved that one, and went into this book with high expectations, because I heard that this series is one of his best. But, by the end of this book, I found my expectations … Continue reading Book Review: Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

The year is officially over, but before I completely move on to new and hopefully better books, I have to do one last reading wrap-up for December. I ended last month with 11 books read. Not exactly the best, but I felt like I was catching up on a lot of things I had put … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

This is probably not the most fitting book to be reviewing on Christmas day, but what can I say, I like to be rebellious. While I'm opening presents and stuffing my face with pot roast and cookies, I thought you all would enjoy this ranting book review. What is more fun on Christmas day than … Continue reading Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is another one of those authors I see everywhere and get recommended by everyone. And whenever I ask/look to see which is the first book by him I should read, pretty much everyone agrees this book. This book and its subsequent series might be categorized as urban fantasy, which I've heard kind of … Continue reading Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

Book Review: The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Volume 1)

When I read Les Miserables earlier that year, which sits at a whopping 1500 pages, I was pretty sure I probably would never read a book longer than that. Little did I know what I was getting into when I picked up this book, which sits at 700 pages...and it's the first of three volumes. … Continue reading Book Review: The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Volume 1)
