Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

This is the first book I read for Spooktober, and I thought it would be fun to read a classic horror. I’m surprised at how I never thought to read this book before, as I know the idea so well. Whether I’ve seen it featured in The Pagemaster (great movie) or The League of Extraordinary … Continue reading Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

I have no idea how I grew up without reading this book. I am probably one of the few kids in the United States that did not read this during childhood years. However, I can safely say I knew this plot only from Muppet’s Treasure Island. I grew up watching that movie multiple times per … Continue reading Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

This is a childhood book for many people, but for some reason I never read the full book. I had a shorter picture book of it and I watched multiple movies, but never did I actually read the entire book. Since it’s relatively short, I added it to my list of books to read for … Continue reading Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

Throwback Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Because I am so busy this month with Camp NaNoWriMo, I thought it would be a good idea to do some easier blog posts so I don’t get too overwhelmed. One of the ideas I thought could be interesting is reviewing a book I’ve already read and telling you my thoughts about it. And what … Continue reading Throwback Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

A Note on Book Translations: Who Do You Trust?

Odds are that sometime in your life you have found yourself reading a book which has been translated. Some of the greatest classics in the world weren’t written in English (and since you’re reading this now, I will assume that you read in English). War and Peace. Arabian Nights. The Art of War. Around the … Continue reading A Note on Book Translations: Who Do You Trust?

Popular Classic Books I Dislike

I love reading the classics. I feel like those books which were popular for several decades or more, through many generations, must be good. Otherwise, why would they stay popular? Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Some classic books that are pretty popular are actually horrible, in my opinion. Just because I didn’t like … Continue reading Popular Classic Books I Dislike
