Hello, and welcome back to my blog! Random news, but I just left the house for the first time in two and a half weeks (I was quarantined while I was sick) and it felt amazing! I'm finally completely better. Anyway, back to the blog. In the last couple weeks, I have been tagged to … Continue reading Last 10 Books Book Tag
It seems like quite a while since I've done an author taste test, but with me out of school for the summer, I'm hoping to do more of these. This last week, while I was still recovering from the disease which shall not be named (yes, I did have it, turns out), I read three … Continue reading Author Taste Test: John Green (unpopular Opinions)
This will be another sort of musing post. I'm still sick, though I'm better than last week (geez, this flu hangs on forever). Anyways, for those who don't know, yesterday was the anniversary of the founding of Jamestown in 1607 in Virginia. This last semester in college I took a Colonial American class. I really … Continue reading Why are certain historical eras written about more than others?
I was sick all last week with a horrible stomach flu, so I was supposed to do another post today, but this is the one you're getting because I wasn't up for creating my other idea.

Even better, I had only two one and two star books, and several five star reads, which is rare for me! So, without further ado, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up April 2021

In fact, most of my teachers refused to accept any fictional writing, saying nonfiction was more high brow. At the time, it … Continue reading Is Nonfiction more important than Fiction?
A couple weeks weeks ago, I was tagged on Youtube to do this challenge by Mary and Joe from Book Buds. They are such a cute Youtube channel and I highly recommend them! This tag was created by Ali over at BookBinge. Pretty much, this challenge tells you to pick out six books you want … Continue reading Quick to Judge Book Challenge
This coming week, the last week of April, will be my final learning Chinese in college. For the past two years, I've been studying this language. Before that, I was studying Korean solitary for several years as well. In high school, I also took two years of Latin (clearly, I just like the hard languages). … Continue reading Pros and Cons of Studying a Language in School vs. Solitary
This year, I'm trying to read more of the books I own and I've discovered recently that there are just certain books, or certain types of books, that I avoid. Maybe it's because they are just so long, but more often it is for random reasons. But I'll get into that. Let's get into the … Continue reading Books I own that I’m avoiding
