(Turns out next week is Father's Day, so ignore this post for like a week and you'll be fine, lol.) Tomorrow is Father's Day and in celebration of all the amazing fathers out there, I thought it would nice to celebrate fictional fathers on my little blog. Like in real life, fictional fathers can support … Continue reading Best Book Fathers for Father’s Day

Reading Wrap-up April 2021

Last month was a pretty busy one for me with college finals, but not only did all my finals go well, but I was also able to read 12 books. Even better, I had only two one and two star books, and several five star reads, which is rare for me! So, without further ado, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up April 2021

Book Review: Cry The Beloved Country

I discovered this book at the Goodwill a few years ago. To be honest, the only reason I picked it up was because it was an old book set in South Africa. I'm a sucker for classics set in places I don't know much about. And let me just say, I was not disappointed! Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Cry The Beloved Country

Fictional Siblings Book Tag – Original

Today, April 10, is National Siblings Day! I wanted to do a fun tag in celebration of this day, but the only book tag I could find was a book tag for siblings to do, not one about siblings in books, so I decided to create my own. This was a very last minute idea...but … Continue reading Fictional Siblings Book Tag – Original

Are Classics Inherently Better Than Modern Books?

Do you ever start really thinking about a topic you're pretty sure only you care about and you know your opinion is pointless and you should be putting more effort into researching your stupid final paper for your Africa in Bondage class, but you continue to think about that topic anyway because it's important to … Continue reading Are Classics Inherently Better Than Modern Books?

Some Exceptional Underrated Classic Books

I'm a big fan of classics. There is something just so fascinating about being able to read something written decades or centuries ago and be able to see into the mind and heart of people who came before me. I love learning about different eras. However, I feel when I say the word classics, you … Continue reading Some Exceptional Underrated Classic Books

Book Review: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

It feels like forever since I have done a book review! I should do more, I know, but I feel like most of the books I read I can condense my thoughts into a paragraph and just post it on Goodreads. But this one...I have a lot of thoughts about. This is a classic I've … Continue reading Book Review: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

December 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Finally 2020 is over! I look forward to starting 2021 with a positive outlook and hope for the future. December was a good reading month for me, since I was off over school for most of the month and so I could dive a lot into reading. I read a total of 21 books last … Continue reading December 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Best Classic Books I Read in 2020

2020 has been a crazy year...to say the least. And it's really easy to just look at the negatives and fixate on those. But as 2020 is nearing to a close, I want to focus mostly on the good things from this year. Mainly books...because I'm addicted. I'm going to be doing a few posts … Continue reading Best Classic Books I Read in 2020

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). It is partially because I have no self-control when it comes to buying cheap books, but also partially because I have discovered a vintage bookshop near my house … Continue reading Book Haul #7
