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

December 2020 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.

If You Like Sherlock Holmes, Read These Series

I'm a massive fan of Sherlock Holmes, and so I've read quite a few mysteries set during the end of the Victorian era.

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.

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

Book Haul #7

It has been almost three months since my last book haul (in July) and since then I have accumulated more books (is anyone surprised, because I'm not). It is partially because I have no self-control when it comes to buying cheap books, but also partially because I have discovered a vintage bookshop near my house … Continue reading Book Haul #7

Since than I have been browsing many lists to find new "dark academia" books … Continue reading Amazing Lesser Known Dark Academia Books

Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

I discovered Fredrik Backman the way most people did, through A Man Called Ove. I read it mostly because of the hype, but absolutely fell in love with it. If I had one criticism of that book, however, it would be Backman's unconventional choice of organization, as he spends much time jumping from modern to … Continue reading Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman
