May 2020 Reading Wrap-up

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. I had a pretty good month, reading 12 books (including two rereads). I'm also starting a big reread for the … Continue reading May 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Stay at Home Book Tag

Well, we're still here. I'm still stuck in my house and, for the most part, America is still in quarantine. So I figured I might as well do another book tag themed around staying at home. This one was originally created by Princess of Paperback on Youtube, and looked like a perfect tag to do … Continue reading Stay at Home Book Tag

Book Review: The Call of the Wild by Jack London

I've read a couple short stories by Jack London and I've really enjoyed his writing, especially when it comes to serious stories about man v. nature and our separation from the harsh realities of nature. This book, is perhaps his most famous, or at least I know I've seen it around a lot. It's also … Continue reading Book Review: The Call of the Wild by Jack London

April 2020 Reading Wrap-up

This month was a little choppy for me concerning reading. I started strong, reading the majority of the ten books I read this month in the first two weeks of April. In fact, in the last two weeks I've read only three books. I'm not necessarily in a reading slump as much as now that … Continue reading April 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: The War of the World by H.G. Wells

This is the third book I've read by H.G. Wells, following The Island of Doctor Moreau and The Invisible Man. His writing is this strange mixture of Ray Bradbury, C.S. Lewis, and Jules Verne. I feel like this book is perhaps his most famous and yet for some reason I knew pretty much nothing about … Continue reading Book Review: The War of the World by H.G. Wells

Book Review: The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

I have read a couple other retellings of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, and I have not found one yet that I really liked. And yet this one might just have broken that stigma I have against Jane Eyre retellings. Yes, it's not perfect and a bit of a mess, but I found myself laughing … Continue reading Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton
