I have been wanting to read this book for years, and I have owned my copy for at least 10 years. On one hand, I was excited to finally get around the reading it. On the other hand, I really, really didn't like it. And I am aware that my opinion will be very unpopular... … Continue reading Book Review: Walden by Henry David Thoreau
For the last six months, I've been collecting quite a few books from thrift stores and Goodwills near me. So I thought it would be fun to share with you all the books I've bought from thrift stores so far this year. As my yearly resolution is to get rid of as many books as … Continue reading A Massive Summer Thrift Book Haul
I can't believe we're already halfway done with the year. For those who are American, Happy belated 4th of July! I know I'm still recovering from mosquito bites from watching fireworks outdoors.

Anyways, for those who don't know, yesterday was the anniversary of the founding of Jamestown in 1607 in Virginia. This last semester in college I took a Colonial American class. I really … Continue reading Why are certain historical eras written about more than others?
I was sick all last week with a horrible stomach flu, so I was supposed to do another post today, but this is the one you're getting because I wasn't up for creating my other idea. Last Saturday (when I put on the original video for this tag on my Youtube Channel) I found out … Continue reading World War II Book Tag (Original)
Last month was a pretty busy one for me with college finals, but not only did all my finals go well, but I was also able to read 12 books. Even better, I had only two one and two star books, and several five star reads, which is rare for me! So, without further ado, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up April 2021
So, I've said previously that I tend not to look forward to new releases. In a single year, I usually have only a handful of new books I'm excited to read. However, I do like to try to keep up with authors I've enjoyed before to see if I like their new books as well. … Continue reading Books Releasing Soon by Authors I’ve Enjoyed
