How Important Is It To Keep Learning?

I graduated from high school eight years ago, and I graduated from college four years ago. It seemed like a given that that is how life should be. After college, you go on with your life. Get a job, become more independent, and stop actively learning new things. That never settled well with me. I'm … Continue reading How Important Is It To Keep Learning?

Book Review: Malice by Keigo Higashino

According to the back of this book, Keigo Higashino "is the bestselling and most widely read novelist in Japan." Add to that that I have never heard of him before. From what I could gather, Higashino is the James Patterson of Japan. I stumbled upon this book in the library and read it on a … Continue reading Book Review: Malice by Keigo Higashino

Book Review: 1984 by George Orwell

George Orwell (real name Eric Blair) is one of those authors that I have an overwhelmingly positive view of, even though I've only read one of his books: Animal Farm. He wrote during a time where there was universal upheaval around the world. He was born in 1903 and died in 1950, which means he … Continue reading Book Review: 1984 by George Orwell

Reading Challenges I’m Competing in 2019

I know, today's post was supposed to be about foreign films, but I wasn't quite sure where to put this post, so it's going up today. As one of my reading goals for 2019, I said I was hoping to compete in more Reading Challenges. My problem is that I'm incredibly bad at reading challenges, … Continue reading Reading Challenges I’m Competing in 2019

Winter Themed Book Tag

I haven't done a book tag in so long (as it turns out, since the beginning of December), so I thought I'd do a fun Winter-themed book tag, since currently (as I write this) it is -10ºF (-23.33℃). So, yes, it's a bit cold. Anyway, I came across this tag on a blog called Marissa … Continue reading Winter Themed Book Tag

Throwback Book Series Review: The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker

I have been burned so many times by fairytale retellings, but this series is one that keeps me hoping that the next retelling I read may actually be good. I discovered this series around 2007 (at the time, only five of the books were released, which is also how many I've read), and fell in … Continue reading Throwback Book Series Review: The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker

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

Book Review: The Princess Bride by William Goldman

I saw The Princess Bride movie when I was probably about eight years old, and have watched it numerous times ever since. It was a part of my childhood, and I'm pretty sure I could say the entire movie verbatim. But, for some reason, I never bothered to read the book. Whether it was because … Continue reading Book Review: The Princess Bride by William Goldman
