Reading Wrap-up: August, 2019

I'm currently a couple weeks into college, and super busy. During the first few weeks of August, I tried to read as much as possible to prepare for starting college, and I ended up finishing 19 books and 2 short stories. This is great, even more than my average of about fourteen books a month. … 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: A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and A Great War by Joseph Loconte

Perhaps two of my favorite authors of all time are J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. I read The Chronicles of Narnia when I was quite young, and I remember listening to an audio adaptation of The Lord of the Rings even before I was able to read. So when I saw this book, which discusses … Continue reading Book Review: A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and A Great War by Joseph Loconte

Book Review: The Five The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold

I mentioned this book a while back in my I Love Spring Book Tag, where I mentioned I was anticipating its release. Well, it's now three months later, I finally got a chance to read the book. Having a pretty good working knowledge of Jack the Ripper, I went into this book expecting for it … Continue reading Book Review: The Five The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold

Book Review: The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston

This book was recommended to me after I read The Lost City of Z by David Grann, which I read a few years ago. It took me a couple years to read, but I'm glad I finally got to it, because it is such a fascinating book filled with historical details. Many reviews I read … Continue reading Book Review: The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston

I Love Spring Book Tag

Finally the snow is melting and spring is on the way. That doesn't mean that Minnesota won't get another snowfall, but spring snowfalls tend to be wet, heavy, and melts quickly. Let's hope there will be no more snow! But I thought I'd take this time to do another book tag, this one themed around … Continue reading I Love Spring Book Tag

Reading Wrap-up: March, 2019

Despite being so busy this month, I read a total of 24 books and 2 short stories. This is probably because I'm reading every moment I have free. I find it so relaxing when I'm stressing about moving to just sit in the silence and read. Plus, it helps that ten of those books are … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: March, 2019

Book Review: The Rape of Nanking by Iris Chang

This book is possibly the most traumatizing book I have ever read. I almost couldn't get through it all, considering just how graphic and detailed it is. It is rare for me to do this but trigger warning if you plan to read this book. I will not be including any of the graphic details … Continue reading Book Review: The Rape of Nanking by Iris Chang

Books I Love: ABC Edition

Several of the blogs I follow have been doing The ABC Book Challenge, where you take one letter of the alphabet and mention the books you've read and the books on your TBR which start with the letter. This seems like waaayyy too much work for me (but props to anyone doing this challenge), so … Continue reading Books I Love: ABC Edition
