Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2021

I've mentioned before on my blog that I usually don't look forward to many new book releases, because I'm the type of reader who prefers reading books which stand the test of time. An overhyped book from 2021 may or may not be good, but a 2014 book which everyone still loves is probably at … Continue reading Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2021

2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

I'm currently free from school for the next few weeks, so last week I decided to attempt a 24-hour readathon, trying to read 6 books, equaling about 2,000 pages. I've seen a lot of videos on YouTube of this challenge and really wanted to try one myself. You can probably tell by my title that … Continue reading 2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm beginning to think I might stress-read. Despite being completely overwhelmed with school, I still managed to read 19 books this month. I mean...wow. That's not a massive amount for me in the summer, but in the school year when I'm working 8 hours a day on school? That seems like a lot. Anyway, I'm … Continue reading November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

If You Like Sherlock Holmes, Read These Series

I'm a massive fan of Sherlock Holmes, and so I've read quite a few mysteries set during the end of the Victorian era. So today I'm going to share my favorite series which remind me of Sherlock Holmes. I actually did this as a video over on my Youtube channel (if you haven't subscribed already, … Continue reading If You Like Sherlock Holmes, Read These Series

I (tried) reading the Top 15 Goodreads Historical Fiction of 2020…It went horribly wrong (Part 1 of 3)

I don't know if this is just me, but every time the Goodreads Awards come around each year, I am left scratching my head and wondering why I've read little to no books on each list. If you didn't know, Goodreads has these yearly awards where they post 15 top books in different genres (like … Continue reading I (tried) reading the Top 15 Goodreads Historical Fiction of 2020…It went horribly wrong (Part 1 of 3)

Book Review: The Wilderness of Ruin: A Tale of Madness, Fire, and the Hunt for America’s Youngest Serial Killer by Roseanne Montillo

When it comes to Halloween (and October in general), there are two types of books I crave to read: horror novels, and nonfiction true crime books, especially those about serial killers. So it makes sense why I picked up this book. Like the majority of famous serial killers, I've heard of Jesse Pomeroy before, though … Continue reading Book Review: The Wilderness of Ruin: A Tale of Madness, Fire, and the Hunt for America’s Youngest Serial Killer by Roseanne Montillo

Book Haul #7

It has been almost three months since my last book haul (in July) and since then I have accumulated more books (is anyone surprised, because I'm not). It is partially because I have no self-control when it comes to buying cheap books, but also partially because I have discovered a vintage bookshop near my house … Continue reading Book Haul #7

Since than I have been browsing many lists to find new "dark academia" books … Continue reading Amazing Lesser Known Dark Academia Books
