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?
During my first degree in college, I found a lot of my teachers had an eerily similar view of literature, that for some reason nonfiction was so much important to read that fiction. In fact, most of my teachers refused to accept any fictional writing, saying nonfiction was more high brow. At the time, it … Continue reading Is Nonfiction more important than Fiction?
I can't believe we're already four months into 2021...and it feels just as crazy as 2020. Anyways, in March I had a very good reading month, reading a total of 17 books of various genres. 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
I feel like I've been coming out with so many book reviews recently. I promise, next week there will be no book reviews. Anyways, I wasn't planning to review this book, but I had a lot of thoughts about it, so here we go. Release: Nov. 2020 Page Count: 449 Format: Audiobook Synopsis: Set in … Continue reading Book Review: These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong
I can't believe February is already over...it feels like only yesterday that it started. Though I'm pretty sure I say that about every month. This month I read a total of 10 books. Unfortunately, again most of my ratings of these books were in the middle. The majority were three stars, and I had only … Continue reading February 2021 Reading Wrap-up
Finally 2020 is over! I look forward to starting 2021 with a positive outlook and hope for the future. December was a good reading month for me, since I was off over school for most of the month and so I could dive a lot into reading. I read a total of 21 books last … Continue reading December 2020 Reading Wrap-up
I can't believe October is already over! And as of today I have only four more weeks of my fall semester in college. I will be so excited to be done and have a short break before jumping into spring semester. This month I managed to read more books than last month, but definitely not … Continue reading October, 2020 Reading Wrap-up
As school restarts for me this month online, I always look forward to the books I'm assigned to read. Since most of my classes this semester are historical, I have a lot of amazing looking historical nonfiction books to read. One of my classes, Survey to Communication Research, does not require any books, but for … Continue reading Books for My College Classes Fall 2020
Just like last semester, I thought I would share with you the classes I'm taking spring semester in college. Even though I am a history major, they don't offer one class next semester I need to take before I can take any other history course. This seriously sucks, and means I'm taking mostly science/math courses … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College: Spring, 2020
I'm a big reader. Anyone who has ever had the misfortune of stumbling across one of my blog posts will have guessed that. I am also that type of snobbish reader who still believes real books are better than digital or auditory ones. No, I'm not the type who will shame you for not reading … Continue reading How Technology Changed Reading
