How Reading Over 1,500 Books Has Changed My Life

I am currently 26 years old as of writing this post and on my Goodreads I have just surpassed 1,500 read books (technically 1,552 as of writing this post).

I (tried) reading the Top 15 Goodreads Historical Fiction of 2020…It went horribly wrong (Part 1 of 3)

I don't know if this is just me, but every time the Goodreads Awards come around each year, I am left scratching my head and wondering why I've read little to no books on each list. If you didn't know, Goodreads has these yearly awards where they post 15 top books in different genres (like … Continue reading I (tried) reading the Top 15 Goodreads Historical Fiction of 2020…It went horribly wrong (Part 1 of 3)

Happy Halloween! And I started a Youtube Channel!

First of all, Happy Halloween! It's so rare that I actually post on a holiday, because usually my scheduled days don't fall on a holiday. I hope, if you celebrate Halloween, you stay safe this year.

Book Review: The Patient by Jasper DeWitt

You know it's almost Halloween, and after reading a few scary Indie books last week, I wanted to conclude Halloween with another horror book. This one is a recent release, and I had honestly never heard of the book or author before stumbling upon it on my library website.

Book Haul #7

It has been almost three months since my last book haul (in July) and since then I have accumulated more books (is anyone surprised, because I'm not).

The Dark Academia Book Tag

As it turns out, I have liked dark academia for years without even knowing it existed. I love Shakespeare and ancient philosophy. I like vintage fashion and Oxford aesthetic.

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1889-1880

I may be slightly biased for this decade in history, both because it features my favorite bustle for women in Victorian England and because it is the decade that the infamous Jack the Ripper went on his killing spree. But for books, I was surprised how little I had read from this decade. But ah, … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1889-1880

Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown (an unpopular opinion)

Look at me, finally reviewing a book which isn't a classic. I'm so proud of myself. Anyways, I picked this book up for two reasons. One, I mean, look at the gorgeous cover. I admit it, I'm a sucker for beautiful covers. Second, because this is a fantasy book based around West African folklore. I … Continue reading Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A.
