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

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
