November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm beginning to think I might stress-read. Despite being completely overwhelmed with school, I still managed to read 19 books this month. I mean...wow. That's not a massive amount for me in the summer, but in the school year when I'm working 8 hours a day on school? That seems like a lot. Anyway, I'm … Continue reading November 2020 Reading Wrap-up

So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings

I've talked a bit on my blog about how much I adore retellings, even if the final product doesn't always impress me that much. Maybe I should than say that I'm a massive fan of the idea of retellings. And possibly my favorite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast. So it is not surprising that … Continue reading So I Just Read 7 Beauty and the Beast Retellings

October, 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe October is already over! And as of today I have only four more weeks of my fall semester in college. I will be so excited to be done and have a short break before jumping into spring semester. This month I managed to read more books than last month, but definitely not … Continue reading October, 2020 Reading Wrap-up

My Favorite Book Of the Year: 1879-1870

I'm really enjoying this series but I'm definitely having to read more books for each decade now. For this month I had to read half the books on this list, and I am also enjoying reading classics I wouldn't necessarily pick up otherwise. If this is your first post of mine, this is a series … Continue reading My Favorite Book Of the Year: 1879-1870

Book Review: The Wrong Mr. Darcy by Evelyn Lozada and Holly Lorincz

All I wanted was a fun modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice that maybe tackled some social issues. But this...why...why... I don't even want to write a prelude like why I picked it up. Let's just go...prepare for a rant. Release: Aug. 2020 Page Count: 288 Format: Audiobook Synopsis: (from Goodreads because I'm to lazy … Continue reading Book Review: The Wrong Mr. Darcy by Evelyn Lozada and Holly Lorincz

August 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm really happy with my reading for August 2020. I ended up reading 19 books, which is great, but considering at the end of the month I started college and I have a feeling that my amount of book reading will drop down drastically for this coming month. I read a wide variety of books … Continue reading August 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Author Taste Test: Danielle Steel

This is my second blog post of this series where I taste test a famous author's books. A couple months ago I read a few of Nora Roberts's and let's just say I was a little disappointed. I was going to go ahead and take on Karin Slaughter this month to mix up the genres, … Continue reading Author Taste Test: Danielle Steel

Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown (an unpopular opinion)

Look at me, finally reviewing a book which isn't a classic. I'm so proud of myself. Anyways, I picked this book up for two reasons. One, I mean, look at the gorgeous cover. I admit it, I'm a sucker for beautiful covers. Second, because this is a fantasy book based around West African folklore. I … Continue reading Book Review: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown (an unpopular opinion)

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
