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: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

This is probably not the most fitting book to be reviewing on Christmas day, but what can I say, I like to be rebellious. While I'm opening presents and stuffing my face with pot roast and cookies, I thought you all would enjoy this ranting book review. What is more fun on Christmas day than … Continue reading Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is another one of those authors I see everywhere and get recommended by everyone. And whenever I ask/look to see which is the first book by him I should read, pretty much everyone agrees this book. This book and its subsequent series might be categorized as urban fantasy, which I've heard kind of … Continue reading Book Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1979-1970

Ah, the seventies, a time of drugs, hot pants, and really radical music that seems tame now by modern standards but was then considered "devil music." Good times. For those who just started following my series, this is where I share my favorite book of the year. We have been working backwards in time, and … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1979-1970

Series I WON’T Finish

A little over a month ago, one of my favorite Booktubers, Merphy Napier, did a video on this topic and I started thinking of all the series I've started that I know I won't continue on in. It may be because I didn't like the first book, or that after reading a few books I … Continue reading Series I WON’T Finish

Reading Wrap-up: July, 2019

It is so hot here in Ohio! It's the main reason summer is my least favorite season, because I'm like a flower: I wilt in heat. Anyway, this month I read twenty-two books, and two short stories. I'm proud of this, because I have been busy with college orientation and figuring out class schedule and … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: July, 2019

Korean Movie Review: Innocent Witness

It seems like forever since I talked about a Korean drama or movie. I've just been so busy with planning for college and moving before that that I haven't had much time to watch much of anything. Saying that, I watched this movie recently and I was so impressed by it that I had to … Continue reading Korean Movie Review: Innocent Witness

Book Review: A Duty to the Dead by Charles Todd

I've read a lot of historical mysteries, so much so in the last year I've cut back on how many I read, because they all start to blend together eventually. One of the main faults I see in many genres is that the authors play within the limits of certain tropes so much that the … Continue reading Book Review: A Duty to the Dead by Charles Todd

Book Review: Six Four by Hideo Yokoyama

I had absolutely zero knowledge of the book going into it. I happened across it on Overdrive from the library and decided to listen to the audiobook of it (all twenty-four hours of it). I went in with expectations of a fast-paced thriller, and instead this book is a slow psychological mystery, examining the inner … Continue reading Book Review: Six Four by Hideo Yokoyama
