Throwback Book Review: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

I read this book in college about five years ago, and absolutely loved it! I grew up watching the 2004 BBC adaptation (which I also love) and in many ways this book is kind of a deeper version of Pride and Prejudice. But recently, since I'm doing the 5 Tomes, 5 Weeks challenge, I felt … Continue reading Throwback Book Review: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

Book Review: Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky

This book is on pretty much every "top books to read during your lifetime" list. And, after this book sitting forgotten on my bookshelf for a long time (I actually own it on Kindle too, so technically I own two copies), I read it. And I am completely lost for words of this masterpiece! Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Authors I Really Want to Read More

I have a massive TBR, which seems to be a common problem with a lot of readers. Usually, it's the case of not having enough time to keep up with all the great books. But with me, I'm the type of reader who is, well, a bit flighty. I jump from genre to genre, author … Continue reading Authors I Really Want to Read More

Book Review: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

We are nearing Halloween and for the final book I read this month, I thought it would be nice to finish with a classic horror. It doesn’t hurt that the title of the novel is a quote from Shakespeare (it’s from Act IV of Macbeth), who is possibly my favorite author of all time. Anyway, … Continue reading Book Review: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

This is the first book I read for Spooktober, and I thought it would be fun to read a classic horror. I’m surprised at how I never thought to read this book before, as I know the idea so well. Whether I’ve seen it featured in The Pagemaster (great movie) or The League of Extraordinary … Continue reading Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

I have no idea how I grew up without reading this book. I am probably one of the few kids in the United States that did not read this during childhood years. However, I can safely say I knew this plot only from Muppet’s Treasure Island. I grew up watching that movie multiple times per … Continue reading Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

This is a childhood book for many people, but for some reason I never read the full book. I had a shorter picture book of it and I watched multiple movies, but never did I actually read the entire book. Since it’s relatively short, I added it to my list of books to read for … Continue reading Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

Throwback Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Because I am so busy this month with Camp NaNoWriMo, I thought it would be a good idea to do some easier blog posts so I don’t get too overwhelmed. One of the ideas I thought could be interesting is reviewing a book I’ve already read and telling you my thoughts about it. And what … Continue reading Throwback Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
