Book Review: All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

I was forced to read this book for school this semester. I shouldn't be super negative about it, because it has been on my TBR long before I was assigned to read it for one of my history classes, but let's say I had mixed feelings about this book, more personal mixed feelings than I … Continue reading Book Review: All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

Book Review: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance

I've seen this book around a lot, and was a bit curious to read it, but it wasn't until I read Diana's review from Ideas on Papyrus that I knew I had to read it. And, I will say, I wasn't disappointed at all. This book is absolute incredible, and one I could easily recommend … Continue reading Book Review: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance

Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

It seems like a long time since I read a YA fantasy, and even longer since I actually liked one. Going into this book, I basically knew only two things about it: first, it is about a heist and, second, it's set in the same universe as Bardugo's other series Shadow and Bone, which I … Continue reading Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Reading Wrap-up: October, 2019

So, this month was a bit...hectic. I had midterms and a lot of things going on in my personal life, so I wasn't focused on reading at all. I still read 12 books, but not my usual short stories and exclusively read on audiobooks. Since it was October, I wanted to read some horror books, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: October, 2019

Book Review: The Institute by Stephen King

This is my second book by Stephen King that I read this month, and also his latest published. It is also a perfect book to review the day before Halloween. Which makes sense that I would read it next, because Pet Cemetery was one of his earlier ones. While I wouldn't categorize this book as … Continue reading Book Review: The Institute by Stephen King

Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

I was introduced to this book when the movie came out 2018, starring Sandra Bullock. I heard the movie was really good and after watching an analysis of the film, I decided to pick up this book to read it myself. Because let's face it, I rarely watch movies and read lots of books. However, … Continue reading Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

This is the third (or possibly more) book by Stephen King I have attempted to read, following The Shining and It. I was able to finish neither of them, DNFing both of them (The Shining was too frusterating, and It was too slow-moving). My point is, I don't have the best track record with Stephen … Continue reading Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Book Review: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

I thought this book was a bad idea to read during October, because I'm trying to read mostly horror books, but little did I know how horrific this book would be. I read this book because it's on pretty much every list of top books to read in your lifetime. In fact, I accidentally put … Continue reading Book Review: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Book Review: The Motion of Puppets by Keith Donohue

As it is the beginning of October, I'm trying to read mostly horror/Halloween-themed books this month. And this one is the first one I read. Honestly, the only reason I read it was because it has a cool cover...I maybe need to analyze my decisions more. It turned out to be better than I was … Continue reading Book Review: The Motion of Puppets by Keith Donohue
