Little did I know what I was getting into when I picked up this book, which sits at 700 pages...and it's the first of three volumes. … Continue reading Book Review: The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Volume 1)

Books Coming Out in 2020 I’m Excited About

There are very few new releases I genuinely get excited about, mostly because when I do it often results in disappointment. Usually I don't read a book until months or years after it comes out. However, that doesn't mean I never look forward to new releases. So today I'm going to share with you some … Continue reading Books Coming Out in 2020 I’m Excited About

Book Review: All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

I was forced to read this book for school this semester.

Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag

This tag has been on my list to write for a long time, but as it actually takes work which does not include shifting from web tab to web tab as research and actually getting up from my chair, I've avoided doing it.
