Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

This is the third (or possibly more) book by Stephen King I have attempted to read, following The Shining and It. I was able to finish neither of them, DNFing both of them (The Shining was too frusterating, and It was too slow-moving). My point is, I don't have the best track record with Stephen … Continue reading Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Book Review: The Motion of Puppets by Keith Donohue

As it is the beginning of October, I'm trying to read mostly horror/Halloween-themed books this month. And this one is the first one I read. Honestly, the only reason I read it was because it has a cool cover...I maybe need to analyze my decisions more. It turned out to be better than I was … Continue reading Book Review: The Motion of Puppets by Keith Donohue

Reading Wrap-up: August, 2019

I'm surprised how many books I read this month, with how busy I am with school. Most of the books I've been reading are in the audiobook format, and I find it astonishing just how many audiobooks I can listen to just while I'm driving to school or doing other things. In total, I read … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: August, 2019

My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010

So today I'm starting a new series on my blog. I will be counting back my favorite book published in one year, starting from 2019, and going back until I run out of books I've read published in that year. I've seen a few blogs doing this, but usually it is only looking at the … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 2019-2010

Book Review: The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Ever since I read Something Wicked This Way Comes in October of last year, I've been wanting to read more books by Ray Bradbury. He is such a unique and sensual writer (sensual meaning describing the senses of a scene in ways I rarely see). And I finally managed to read this book. Now I … Continue reading Book Review: The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag

I know I've been doing a book tag a week for the last few weeks, but it's mostly because I've been so busy with moving I haven't had a chance to brainstorm blog ideas, or even think in general. Though, hopefully, this is going to be the last book tag for a while. I discovered … Continue reading Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag

Book Review: Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier

I feel like I've been starting every book review recently with, "I've been wanting to read this book for forever, and I finally did!" And this is yet another book which falls into this category. However, in my defense, I'm working really hard this year on decreasing my ever-increasing TBR (it's a constant struggle!). Daphne … Continue reading Book Review: Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier

Book Review: Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki

According to the forward of this book, this collection of short comic stories is "quite possibly the single most famous Japanese manga series you've never heard of, even if you happen to be a manga fan." And I confess, even though I'm not an avid manga fan, I had never heard of this series. The … Continue reading Book Review: Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki
