Book Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

This book has been on my peripheral for a few years, but it wasn't on the top of my list until I say the trailer for the movie adaptation in 2018. The trailer looked interesting and though the movie got pretty bad reviews, it made me curious to read the book. So, here I am … Continue reading Book Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

Indie Book Review: Murder by Misrule by Anna Castle

There are many mystery novels I have read which feature a real historical person and gives them a fictional murder mystery series. You see it with the Jane Austen mysteries by Stephanie Barron (where Jane Austen solves murders) and The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter by Susan Wittig Albert (starring Beatrix Potter, the author of … Continue reading Indie Book Review: Murder by Misrule by Anna Castle

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: Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier

I feel like I've been starting every book review recently with, "I've been wanting to read this book for forever, and I finally did!" And this is yet another book which falls into this category. However, in my defense, I'm working really hard this year on decreasing my ever-increasing TBR (it's a constant struggle!). Daphne … Continue reading Book Review: Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier

Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (unpopular review)

Why is it whenever I read the most popular books coming out, I always end up hating them? I have heard universally good things about Celeste Ng's books. I was debating reading this one or her debut novel Everything I Never Told You, but I decided on this one because I read several people saying … Continue reading Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (unpopular review)

Book Review: Hiroshima Diary by Michihiko Hachiya

If you haven't noticed, I've been writing a lot of book reviews lately and I apologize for the lack of diverse posts. I've been super busy, and yet the one thing I always have time for is reading. Besides, writing book reviews are the easiest posts for me to do, so for the next month … Continue reading Book Review: Hiroshima Diary by Michihiko Hachiya

St. Patrick’s Day Book Tag

For those who don't know, tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. I love anything Irish, whether it is classic Celtic music or Irish food like Irish Lamb Stew and soda bread. Plus, I so badly want to visit Ireland someday. So it seems perfect to do this book tag today. It was originally created by YouTube … Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Book Tag

Book Review: Popol Vuh

For years, I have enjoyed reading about mythology from around the world. Whether it is Ancient Greek and Roman myths or the stories of Chinese and Japanese Gods, or the ancient Celts origin stories, I loved it all. But the one place I haven't really read any myths about is South America. The problem with … Continue reading Book Review: Popol Vuh

Book Review: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

I saw the movie adaptation of this book when it first came out and while it was a little outrageous, I loved the casting choices and the hilarious jokes. My only complaint was the ending was a cliched, boring mess, but most of the movie was fun. Since then, I'm been hoping to find time … Continue reading Book Review: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
