Reading Wrap-up June, 2021

I can't believe we're already halfway done with the year. For those who are American, Happy belated 4th of July! I know I'm still recovering from mosquito bites from watching fireworks outdoors. Last month I really got into reading, finishing a total of 19 books. And for the most part I enjoyed them all, even … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up June, 2021

Reading Wrap-up April 2021

Last month was a pretty busy one for me with college finals, but not only did all my finals go well, but I was also able to read 12 books. Even better, I had only two one and two star books, and several five star reads, which is rare for me! So, without further ado, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up April 2021

Book Review: Lost Boys by Orson Scott Card

This is the second book I read by Orson Scott Card, the first one being Ender's Game, which I was not a big fan of. This book has been on my TBR for a bit, and it sounded really interesting. However, this book was totally different than the book synopsis promised it would be. Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Lost Boys by Orson Scott Card

Failing? Winterween 2021

Last week, from Jan. 4 to Jan. 10, I participated in the Winterween readathon this year. It's a challenge created by Oliviareadsalatte and Gabbyreads over on Youtube. The overall idea of the readathon is that just because it's winter and not Halloween does not mean we can't read some scary reads. Honestly, part of the … Continue reading Failing? Winterween 2021

Finally 2020 is over! I look forward to starting 2021 with a positive outlook and hope for the future.

So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings

I've talked a bit on my blog about how much I adore retellings, even if the final product doesn't always impress me that much. Maybe I should than say that I'm a massive fan of the idea of retellings. And possibly my favorite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast. So it is not surprising that … Continue reading So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings

October, 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

Book Review: The Patient by Jasper DeWitt

You know it's almost Halloween, and after reading a few scary Indie books last week, I wanted to conclude Halloween with another horror book. This one is a recent release, and I had honestly never heard of the book or author before stumbling upon it on my library website. However, let me just say it … Continue reading Book Review: The Patient by Jasper DeWitt

Trick and Treat with some Halloween Indie Books

This week I was really in the mood to read something for Halloween. However, I'm trying to read less library books and more books I own. So I decided to dive into some of the Indie ebooks I have on my phone. Usually, I got through Amazon every few months to look for new, indie … Continue reading Trick and Treat with some Halloween Indie Books

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1899-1890

And finally we are leaving the 20th century behind and traveling back into the 19th. It also happens to be my favorite century to learn about historically, especially with the Victorian Era in England and mass travel and exploration abroad. But if this is the first part of this series you read, here's a list … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1899-1890
