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

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

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1919-1910

Ah, the 1910's, perhaps most famous for WWI, but also marked with massive changes in society with the women's right to vote and famous incidents like the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and Alfred Wegener's theory of continental rift (which I learned about in my Geology this last semester). However, this is also the … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1919-1910

I feel like 2020 is just divulving into chaos...why can't we all not be idiots and replace violence with love? Anyways, I will avoid everything crazy going on and focus on my reading this month.
