Lunar New Year Book Tag

For those who aren't Chinese or aren't interested in Asia, today is the Lunar New Year! This year is also the Year of the Rat (according to the zodiac). For those who don't know, there are twelve animals in the zodiac according the Eastern astrology. Anyway, in honor of the Lunar New Year, I thought … Continue reading Lunar New Year Book Tag

Book Review: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

I finally read the book everyone seems to be talking about recently, especially since the short TV series adaptation last year starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant came out. I have yet to see it, but I've seen a couple trailers and it looks pretty humorous. Anyways, I wanted to read the book before I … Continue reading Book Review: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

So this book...it...hmm... I fully acknowledge that part of the reason I didn't like this book was because I knew nothing about it before picking it up from the library. It was released about a month ago, and I had heard of Jeff VanderMeer being an interesting writer and I randomly read it. I did … Continue reading Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

Book Review: Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

This is the second book in the last couple months I've read by Brandon Sanderson, the first one being Elantris. I absolutely loved that one, and went into this book with high expectations, because I heard that this series is one of his best. But, by the end of this book, I found my expectations … Continue reading Book Review: Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

The year is officially over, but before I completely move on to new and hopefully better books, I have to do one last reading wrap-up for December. I ended last month with 11 books read. Not exactly the best, but I felt like I was catching up on a lot of things I had put … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is another one of those authors I see everywhere and get recommended by everyone. And whenever I ask/look to see which is the first book by him I should read, pretty much everyone agrees this book. This book and its subsequent series might be categorized as urban fantasy, which I've heard kind of … Continue reading Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1979-1970

Ah, the seventies, a time of drugs, hot pants, and really radical music that seems tame now by modern standards but was then considered "devil music." Good times. For those who just started following my series, this is where I share my favorite book of the year. We have been working backwards in time, and … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1979-1970

Book Review: Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

I have been wanting to read any of Brandon Sanderson's books for months, since I watched his lecture series on writing (if you are a writer, I highly recommend you check it out on Youtube). My sister likes his books and kindly lent me this one and the Mistborn series. Months later, I finally got … Continue reading Book Review: Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

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
