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

Reading Wrap-up: August, 2019

I'm surprised how many books I read this month, with how busy I am with school. Most of the books I've been reading are in the audiobook format, and I find it astonishing just how many audiobooks I can listen to just while I'm driving to school or doing other things. In total, I read … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: August, 2019

My Favorite Book Quotes #3

I haven't done a collection of my favorite book quotes since March, so I thought it was about time I did another one. Similar to my last quotes post, I'm sharing a collection of quotes I found from books I read since March. It's nice to do this both to remember the books I've read … Continue reading My Favorite Book Quotes #3

Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag

This tag has been on my list to write for a long time, but as it actually takes work which does not include shifting from web tab to web tab as research and actually getting up from my chair, I've avoided doing it. I'm clearly lazy. Anyway, I couldn't find out who created this tag, … Continue reading Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag

Book Review: The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham

I'm pretty sure I have never read a book so depressing and yet so interesting as this book. Most probably know of this book due to the 2006 adaptation of it starring Naomi Watts and Edward Norton (I've seen parts of the movie, so I knew the basic plot, but not the details). I've avoided … Continue reading Book Review: The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham

Book Review: Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

This book is the longest one I have ever read, sitting at early 1,500 pages. It kind of feels like reading five similar books back to back, and reading it in about two weeks like I did felt a bit overwhelming. It's a lot to take in, and I'm still processing my thoughts on it. … Continue reading Book Review: Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

Reading Wrap-up: August, 2019

I'm currently a couple weeks into college, and super busy. During the first few weeks of August, I tried to read as much as possible to prepare for starting college, and I ended up finishing 19 books and 2 short stories. This is great, even more than my average of about fourteen books a month. … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: August, 2019

Book Review: The Good Earth by Pearl. S. Buck

So, my first week back in college has been a bit hectic, especially since it rained most of Monday and Tuesday (so lots of running in the rain between classes), but in between the freaking out over syllabi and all I'll have to do this semester, I read this book. This classic is one I've … Continue reading Book Review: The Good Earth by Pearl. S. Buck
