Genres I Want to Read More

I have a really bad habit, and I'm definitely not the only one, of easily falling into reading the same type of books. I try to read a variety of books, but I honestly find myself reading very very similar books, mostly falling into the categories of historical, classic, or mystery. I will read some … Continue reading Genres I Want to Read More

January 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I cannot believe a new year is here and January is already over. It's been kind of a crazy month with me starting my seven classes this semester and also trying to keep up with my blog. A lot of you who I follow may have noticed me taking like a week to actually read … Continue reading January 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

So this book...it...hmm... I fully acknowledge that part of the reason I didn't like this book was because I knew nothing about it before picking it up from the library. It was released about a month ago, and I had heard of Jeff VanderMeer being an interesting writer and I randomly read it. I did … Continue reading Book Review: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

The year is officially over, but before I completely move on to new and hopefully better books, I have to do one last reading wrap-up for December. I ended last month with 11 books read. Not exactly the best, but I felt like I was catching up on a lot of things I had put … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: December, 2019

Book Review: Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody

I'm not the type to read many YA fantasy novels, and when I do I rarely enjoy them. However, I made an exception to this one since it is a futuristic fantasy retelling of Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. I have read many retellings in my reading life, but I have never seen any author … Continue reading Book Review: Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody

Book Review: Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

I grew up watching and re-watching Jurassic Park, and it alone was motivation for my early fascination with dinosaurs. I remember collecting books and pictures about dinosaurs when I was seven or so. I eventually grew out of my fascination with those prehistoric creatures, but I still have a great fondness for this movie and … Continue reading Book Review: Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

Book Review: The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Ever since I read Something Wicked This Way Comes in October of last year, I've been wanting to read more books by Ray Bradbury. He is such a unique and sensual writer (sensual meaning describing the senses of a scene in ways I rarely see). And I finally managed to read this book. Now I … Continue reading Book Review: The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

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: Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

I have been burned too many times by classic retellings, and yet I still decided to pick this book up and read it, for two reasons. First, I am a massive fan of Jane Eyre. Jane is one of my favorite protagonists in literature, mostly because she is such a strong character despite her horrible … Continue reading Book Review: Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

Book Review: The Maze Runner

I have been ruminating on whether to read this book since before the movie came out. Honestly, I am not a huge YA fan. Even the books I actually enjoy in this genre (like The Hunger Games), had really poor character development. So, I confess, I was avoiding this book. But this week I had … Continue reading Book Review: The Maze Runner
