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

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
