My Favorite Book of the Year: 1949-1940

I have been really enjoying this series so far, but I am getting to a point where I'm having to read a few books for each new post, and I assume it's going to get a whole lot worse as the decades continue. I'm hoping to continue putting up one of these posts a month, … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1949-1940

Book Review: Lord of the Flies by William Golding

I feel like this is one of those books that most people are told they should read, whether in school or just in general, but one that a lot of people don't like. In fact, I don't know anyone in my personal life who has read it and liked it. However, I wanted to read … Continue reading Book Review: Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

If you missed my last week's post, I announced a seven day read-a-thon over my spring break this past week from Saturday to Friday. My main goal was to read seven books, and my secondary hope was to read 7 books I already owned. I almost succeeded in one of those. I ended up not … Continue reading Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

Spring Break Read-A-Thon Announcement

Since starting my extremely busy semester, I've wanted to just have a break and do a bunch of reading from actual books. Since January, I have exclusively read either ebooks or audiobooks. While there is nothing wrong with either format, my favorite reading format is still physical books. And there's been a few read-a-thons I've … Continue reading Spring Break Read-A-Thon Announcement

Book Review: Marley by Jon Clinch

Growing up, I was a massive fan of The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I have not only read the book multiple times, often around Christmas, but I've seen at least a dozen of the many adaptations of the book (some far better than others). So when I stumbled upon this book, which purported to … Continue reading Book Review: Marley by Jon Clinch

Book Review: How the Other Half Lives by Jacob A. Riis

It's been a while since I've read a nonfiction book. This one I was assigned to read in my history class (which is also my favorite class this semester), so I didn't exactly read it by choice. I've also never heard of it, so I'm glad I had a chance to read it. Riis was … Continue reading Book Review: How the Other Half Lives by Jacob A. Riis

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1959-1950

Another month come and gone and my spring semester is in full swing. We are currently into the 1950's for my favorite book, and for this one I had to do a bit of reading before I had any for a few of these years, and I have a feeling it will only get harder … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1959-1950

January 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I cannot believe a new year is here and January is already over. It's been kind of a crazy month with me starting my seven classes this semester and also trying to keep up with my blog. A lot of you who I follow may have noticed me taking like a week to actually read … Continue reading January 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

I feel guilty to say that this is the first time I have ever read the Lord of the Rings. So many people love this series, and I grew up with the film series. I can almost quote the movies word-for-word...which may be concerning. However, despite all that, I have never read the books. Until … Continue reading Book Review: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
