Reading Rush 2020 Announcement

I'm so excited to be participating in another Reading Rush! I have been doing this read-a-thon for a few years now, and it's one of my favorites. It also helps that it's during summer, a time when I'm usually less busy. If you have no idea what the Reading Rush is, it's a week long … Continue reading Reading Rush 2020 Announcement

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1909-1900

We are finally to the turn of the century. It seems like we've been traveling back so fast, and yet I started this series nearly a year ago. Anyway, the first decade of the 1900's marked a shift from old traditional towards a new way of life. Queen Victoria died in 1901, the Wright Brothers … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1909-1900

June 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe it's already the beginning of July. This year indeed has been insane. This month I read 13 books, and they mostly fell in the middle range of rating around three or four stars. There weren't many amazing books I read, but also not many bad books I read. It's getting to be … Continue reading June 2020 Reading Wrap-up

May 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I feel like 2020 is just divulving into chaos...why can't we all not be idiots and replace violence with love? Anyways, I will avoid everything crazy going on and focus on my reading this month. I had a pretty good month, reading 12 books (including two rereads). I'm also starting a big reread for the … Continue reading May 2020 Reading Wrap-up

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

March 2020 Reading Wrap-up

What a month it has been! It's crazy to think that just a month ago I was in school as normal, and now I'm quarantined at home doing my college classes over the web and rarely ever leaving my house (which is no problem for me, because I love staying home). With that, you would … Continue reading March 2020 Reading Wrap-up

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
