Stay at Home Book Tag

Well, we're still here. I'm still stuck in my house and, for the most part, America is still in quarantine. So I figured I might as well do another book tag themed around staying at home. This one was originally created by Princess of Paperback on Youtube, and looked like a perfect tag to do … Continue reading Stay at Home Book Tag

Book Review: The Deep by Alma Katsu

I am drawn to any retelling of the sinking of the Titanic. When I saw this book coming out, which takes a more supernatural twist on the real-life tragedy, I felt I had to read it. And, while my feelings were mixed, I did find it to be a creepy and interesting novel. Release: March … Continue reading Book Review: The Deep by Alma Katsu

Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

I have read a couple other retellings of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, and I have not found one yet that I really liked. And yet this one might just have broken that stigma I have against Jane Eyre retellings. Yes, it's not perfect and a bit of a mess, but I found myself laughing … Continue reading Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

Book Review: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Gillian Flynn is one of those authors I've been wanting to read for years. I feel like she kind of exploded with Gone Girl, and everyone was talking about her a few years ago. The only problem with reading that book is that, because it's been so popular, I've had pretty much everything in that … Continue reading Book Review: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Book Review: The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

It's been a while since I read a thriller I truly enjoyed, especially when that said book does so many things I usually don't like in books. And it did it right. This book has quickly gone to the top of the list of books I've read in 2020 so far. I discovered it completely … Continue reading Book Review: The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

If you missed my last week's post, I announced a seven day read-a-thon over my spring break this past week from Saturday to Friday. My main goal was to read seven books, and my secondary hope was to read 7 books I already owned. I almost succeeded in one of those. I ended up not … Continue reading Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1959-1950

Another month come and gone and my spring semester is in full swing. We are currently into the 1950's for my favorite book, and for this one I had to do a bit of reading before I had any for a few of these years, and I have a feeling it will only get harder … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1959-1950

Book Review: My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

This is the third book by Daphne Du Maurier I have read in the last few months, alongside Jamaica Inn and Rebecca. The former I loved, the latter...I didn't. So I went into this book with pretty average expectations. And I was pleasantly surprised by most of this book, until the very ending. Release: 1951 … Continue reading Book Review: My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

So this book...it...hmm... I fully acknowledge that part of the reason I didn't like this book was because I knew nothing about it before picking it up from the library. It was released about a month ago, and I had heard of Jeff VanderMeer being an interesting writer and I randomly read it. I did … Continue reading Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

Reading Wrap-up: November, 2019

This month I read 12 books, which isn't horrible, but I also was still finishing a lot of books for October I got for Halloween and didn't have time to finish. So this month felt like I read a mix of Halloween and Christmas-themed books, with some YA fantasy and non-fiction thrown into there. Very … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: November, 2019
