The Book Blogger Memory Challenge

A couple weeks ago, I came across this challenge on the web. I found it here, but when I tried to find the original creator, the link didn't work. I've probably never mentioned this one my blog, but I have an absolutely horrible memory. I have a great short-term memory, but if you ask me … Continue reading The Book Blogger Memory Challenge

Book Review: The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Ever since I read Something Wicked This Way Comes in October of last year, I've been wanting to read more books by Ray Bradbury. He is such a unique and sensual writer (sensual meaning describing the senses of a scene in ways I rarely see). And I finally managed to read this book. Now I … Continue reading Book Review: The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Do I Have That Book Challenge

I've been meaning to do this challenge for months, since Lysi from Living One Day @ a Time did it last November.

The main idea of this … Continue reading Do I Have That Book Challenge

Reading Wrap-up: May, 2019

Now, near the end of the month as I was finally settling in, a massive flood of tornadoes hit Ohio (thirteen in … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: May, 2019

Book Review: Main Street by Sinclair Lewis

I read this book for my Back to Classics Challenge of 2019. It falls under the category of Classic from a place you've lived. This book takes place in a small town in Minnesota in the early 20th century. I read the first few chapters and I immediately knew I would hate it. However, it … Continue reading Book Review: Main Street by Sinclair Lewis

I am finally back from my hiatus of moving. While my stress isn't completely gone, it's definitely much less than when I last posted. I have been meaning to reading this book for some time. For reference, I read the first two books of this series, Strong Poison and Have His Carcass, all the way … Continue reading Book Review: Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers

Shakespeare’s Worst Play? Pericles, Prince of Tyre

I have been a great admirer of Shakespeare since high school. I even took an optional class to study his plays in both high school and college. In total, I have read and studied twenty (now twenty-one) of his thirty-seven plays. And I have not read one I didn't enjoy, even the tragedies. So imagine … Continue reading Shakespeare’s Worst Play? Pericles, Prince of Tyre

Book Reviews: A Hero Born (Legends of the Condor Heroes #1) by Jin Yong

I have mentioned this frequently on my blog before, but I am a massive fan of Chinese dramas, especially Wuxia dramas. Wuxia pretty much combins martial arts with heroes (wu 武 meaning military and xia 俠 meaning hero or chivalrous person). Probably the most famous Wuxia author is China was Louis Cha, who wrote under … Continue reading Book Reviews: A Hero Born (Legends of the Condor Heroes #1) by Jin Yong
