February 2021 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe February is already over...it feels like only yesterday that it started. Though I'm pretty sure I say that about every month. This month I read a total of 10 books. Unfortunately, again most of my ratings of these books were in the middle. The majority were three stars, and I had only … Continue reading February 2021 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

This is the second book of the Grisha Trilogy, and I recommend you read my review for the first book before you read this one. Even if I had mixed feelings about the first book, I am determined to finish this series. And this one, while it was hardly perfect, did fix some of the … Continue reading Book Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I'm pretty sure I'm one of the last people to read this book, with how big this series has been over the last few years. It's especially gotten bigger this year with the announcement of it being adapted into a TV series on Netflix, coming in April. In said April I will be forced to … Continue reading Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

January 2021 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe January is already over! This month I read 11 books, which isn't bad considering how busy I am in school currently. However, I was a little disappointed that the majority of books I read (8 of the 11) were three star reads. I suppose that's better than reading really bad books, but … Continue reading January 2021 Reading Wrap-up

First Book Unhaul of 2021

On Wednesday I did a book haul post, and this is an accompaniment post to that one, where I unhaul 20 books to match the 20 books I bought. Here's a link to the book haul, if you missed it. Now, even though I'm getting rid of a lot of books, that does not necessarily … Continue reading First Book Unhaul of 2021

2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

I'm currently free from school for the next few weeks, so last week I decided to attempt a 24-hour readathon, trying to read 6 books, equaling about 2,000 pages. I've seen a lot of videos on YouTube of this challenge and really wanted to try one myself. You can probably tell by my title that … Continue reading 2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm beginning to think I might stress-read. Despite being completely overwhelmed with school, I still managed to read 19 books this month. I mean...wow. That's not a massive amount for me in the summer, but in the school year when I'm working 8 hours a day on school? That seems like a lot. Anyway, I'm … Continue reading November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings

I've talked a bit on my blog about how much I adore retellings, even if the final product doesn't always impress me that much. Maybe I should than say that I'm a massive fan of the idea of retellings. And possibly my favorite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast. So it is not surprising that … Continue reading So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings

Best Classic Books I Read in 2020

2020 has been a crazy year...to say the least. And it's really easy to just look at the negatives and fixate on those. But as 2020 is nearing to a close, I want to focus mostly on the good things from this year. Mainly books...because I'm addicted. I'm going to be doing a few posts … Continue reading Best Classic Books I Read in 2020
