Books I Love: ABC Edition

Several of the blogs I follow have been doing The ABC Book Challenge, where you take one letter of the alphabet and mention the books you've read and the books on your TBR which start with the letter. This seems like waaayyy too much work for me (but props to anyone doing this challenge), so … Continue reading Books I Love: ABC Edition

Book Review: The Princess Bride by William Goldman

I saw The Princess Bride movie when I was probably about eight years old, and have watched it numerous times ever since. It was a part of my childhood, and I'm pretty sure I could say the entire movie verbatim. But, for some reason, I never bothered to read the book. Whether it was because … Continue reading Book Review: The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Book Review: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

I have seen this book (and its subsequent sequels) on bookstore shelves since I was a child. However, I never bothered to pick it up. I'm not sure why, since the cover is rather appealing. But, apparently the movie adaptation is being made, so I thought it was about time that I tried reading this … Continue reading Book Review: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Book Review: Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

I have been burned too many times by classic retellings, and yet I still decided to pick this book up and read it, for two reasons. First, I am a massive fan of Jane Eyre. Jane is one of my favorite protagonists in literature, mostly because she is such a strong character despite her horrible … Continue reading Book Review: Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

This will be the first of many Christmas/winter themes books I will be reading, both this month and probably for the rest of winter. I don't what it is about winter that makes me want to read books set in cold places. Anyway, I was drawn to this book both because of its cover and … Continue reading Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

Reading Wrap-Up: November, 2018

This month went...tolerably well. I'm still super behind with my 5 Week, 5 Tomes challenge, but I did read technically 8 books this months. I use the word 'technically' because three of them were crocheting books, which take only a fraction of the time to read. But they are still books, so I'm counting them. … Continue reading Reading Wrap-Up: November, 2018

Authors I Really Want to Read More

I have a massive TBR, which seems to be a common problem with a lot of readers. Usually, it's the case of not having enough time to keep up with all the great books. But with me, I'm the type of reader who is, well, a bit flighty. I jump from genre to genre, author … Continue reading Authors I Really Want to Read More

Book Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

There are some books I read because I love the author and other books I get because I like the premise. And then there's books like this one, that I read just because I like the cover. It is a rather shallow reasoning, but, what can I say, I'm an impulse reader. I'm usually against … Continue reading Book Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Book Review: The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson (a.k.a., another Rapunzel Retelling)

I read this book for two reasons. First, the cover is absolutely beautiful. Second, I am easily convinced to read any fairytale retelling even though more often than not I am disappointed with them. This book was…not at all what I was expecting…but I’ll get into that in a minute. Release: November, 2015 Synopsis: The … Continue reading Book Review: The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson (a.k.a., another Rapunzel Retelling)

Book Review: Rakkety Tam by Brian Jacques

You sick of book reviews yet? Well, don’t worry, because this one will be the last review following BookTubeAThon, as I never did end up finishing my final book, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty (though I will finish it eventually, I promise). Anyway, this series (a.ka., the Redwall series) has been on … Continue reading Book Review: Rakkety Tam by Brian Jacques
