The second category are the book that, maybe I don't remember everything about them, but I remember that basics of what its about and what I … Continue reading Books I read that I remember nothing about
This will be another sort of musing post. I'm still sick, though I'm better than last week (geez, this flu hangs on forever). 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.

Looking at the book I read this month, they were honestly all over the place. I have older books, new … Continue reading Reading Wrap-Up March, 2021
Every few months, I go through a phase of wanting to read recent releases, despite having thousands of books on my TBR I should be reading. In the last couple weeks, I've read 5 recent releases and I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on them. In a sense, this will be … Continue reading Reading Recent Releases – bugs, blizzards, and robots
This book is an interesting one, and one that's been on my TBR for a long time. Not only is the book itself unique, but the story behind it's publication is even more interesting, if also a bit sad. Irène Némirovsky was a Jewish Ukrainian author who lived most of her life in France, converting … Continue reading Book Review: Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky
春节快乐 (chunjie kuai le)! Happy Chinese New Year! Yesterday was the Chinese New Year. 2021 is the Year of the Ox, and so today I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Chinese books, both classic and modern.

I saw it originally on Zezee with Books blog, and it was originally created on Booktube by Betweenlinesandlife. I have been highly interested in philosophy for years (there was even a point that I … Continue reading The Philosopher Book Tag
