Book Review: My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

This is the third book by Daphne Du Maurier I have read in the last few months, alongside Jamaica Inn and Rebecca. The former I loved, the latter...I didn't. So I went into this book with pretty average expectations. And I was pleasantly surprised by most of this book, until the very ending. Release: 1951 … Continue reading Book Review: My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1969-1960

I am really enjoying this series, though in a couple decades I'm going to have to be reading a lot of new books to fill in the years I haven't read a single book I liked in. Anyway, for those just coming to this post, this is a series where I share my favorite book … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1969-1960

Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

The year is officially over, but before I completely move on to new and hopefully better books, I have to do one last reading wrap-up for December. I ended last month with 11 books read. Not exactly the best, but I felt like I was catching up on a lot of things I had put … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

This is probably not the most fitting book to be reviewing on Christmas day, but what can I say, I like to be rebellious. While I'm opening presents and stuffing my face with pot roast and cookies, I thought you all would enjoy this ranting book review. What is more fun on Christmas day than … Continue reading Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Reading Wrap-up: November, 2019

This month I read 12 books, which isn't horrible, but I also was still finishing a lot of books for October I got for Halloween and didn't have time to finish. So this month felt like I read a mix of Halloween and Christmas-themed books, with some YA fantasy and non-fiction thrown into there. Very … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: November, 2019

Book Review: The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells

I was supposed to read this book by Halloween, which tells you just how far behind I am in my reading. Anyway...I have been wanting to read more of Wells' books. I still have to read The Time Machine and War of the Worlds, both of which I hear are really great. However, I decided … Continue reading Book Review: The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells

Book Review: All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

I was forced to read this book for school this semester. I shouldn't be super negative about it, because it has been on my TBR long before I was assigned to read it for one of my history classes, but let's say I had mixed feelings about this book, more personal mixed feelings than I … Continue reading Book Review: All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

Book Review: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

I thought this book was a bad idea to read during October, because I'm trying to read mostly horror books, but little did I know how horrific this book would be. I read this book because it's on pretty much every list of top books to read in your lifetime. In fact, I accidentally put … Continue reading Book Review: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
