My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010

So today I'm starting a new series on my blog. I will be counting back my favorite book published in one year, starting from 2019, and going back until I run out of books I've read published in that year. I've seen a few blogs doing this, but usually it is only looking at the … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010

Book Review: Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody

I'm not the type to read many YA fantasy novels, and when I do I rarely enjoy them. However, I made an exception to this one since it is a futuristic fantasy retelling of Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. I have read many retellings in my reading life, but I have never seen any author … Continue reading Book Review: Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody

Book Review: A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and A Great War by Joseph Loconte

Perhaps two of my favorite authors of all time are J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. I read The Chronicles of Narnia when I was quite young, and I remember listening to an audio adaptation of The Lord of the Rings even before I was able to read. So when I saw this book, which discusses … Continue reading Book Review: A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and A Great War by Joseph Loconte

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. But due to me being busy and then moving (during which time my books were all packed), I wasn't able to do this challenge. But today I can! The main idea of this … Continue reading Do I Have That Book Challenge

Book Review: The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo

I don't usually anticipate books coming out anymore, because usually I end up getting my hopes up for nothing. But this book looked particularly good, both by the synopsis and the cover, so I decided to read it. And several months after it came out (because I never do anything quickly), I finally read it. … Continue reading Book Review: The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo

Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag

I know I've been doing a book tag a week for the last few weeks, but it's mostly because I've been so busy with moving I haven't had a chance to brainstorm blog ideas, or even think in general. Though, hopefully, this is going to be the last book tag for a while. I discovered … Continue reading Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag

Reading Wrap-up: April, 2019

What with spending most of my time on my move last month, I only read eight books and two short stories in April. Hopefully, since the move will be over in about a week, I'll have more time to absorb books. Until then, I left Minnesota behind today and am making the long drive currently … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: April, 2019

Book Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

This book has been on my peripheral for a few years, but it wasn't on the top of my list until I say the trailer for the movie adaptation in 2018. The trailer looked interesting and though the movie got pretty bad reviews, it made me curious to read the book. So, here I am … Continue reading Book Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve
