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

Author Taste Test: Nora Roberts

Today I am starting a new series on my channel, and one to which I must give some credit to Chandler Ainsley, a Booktuber on Youtube, for giving me the idea for this series. She's done several taste tests where she'll read the favorite books of other Booktubers. I thought it was such an interesting … Continue reading Author Taste Test: Nora Roberts

Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

I have read a couple other retellings of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, and I have not found one yet that I really liked. And yet this one might just have broken that stigma I have against Jane Eyre retellings. Yes, it's not perfect and a bit of a mess, but I found myself laughing … Continue reading Book Review: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

Book Review: All the Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White

I realized going over my Goodreads's list of books I read last year that I read very few books released in 2019. I only read nine total books published in 2019, and only seven of those I actually read in 2019. So my convoluted and probably confusing point is, I want to read more books … Continue reading Book Review: All the Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White

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: 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: 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

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
