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

Book Review: The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells

I was supposed to read this book by Halloween, which tells you just how far behind I am in my reading. Anyway...I have been wanting to read more of Wells' books. I still have to read The Time Machine and War of the Worlds, both of which I hear are really great. However, I decided … Continue reading Book Review: The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells

Reading Wrap-up: October, 2019

So, this month was a bit...hectic. I had midterms and a lot of things going on in my personal life, so I wasn't focused on reading at all. I still read 12 books, but not my usual short stories and exclusively read on audiobooks. Since it was October, I wanted to read some horror books, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: October, 2019

Book Review: The Institute by Stephen King

This is my second book by Stephen King that I read this month, and also his latest published. It is also a perfect book to review the day before Halloween. Which makes sense that I would read it next, because Pet Cemetery was one of his earlier ones. While I wouldn't categorize this book as … Continue reading Book Review: The Institute by Stephen King

Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

I was introduced to this book when the movie came out 2018, starring Sandra Bullock. I heard the movie was really good and after watching an analysis of the film, I decided to pick up this book to read it myself. Because let's face it, I rarely watch movies and read lots of books. However, … Continue reading Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

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
