Dorothy Must Die Series Rant Review

Sigh...this is a review that I feel I have to do but one I really don't want to do. I really wanted to love this series, because I enjoyed the first book so much. If you want to hear all my positive thoughts for the first book, check out my book review on it that … Continue reading Dorothy Must Die Series Rant Review

Book Review: Walden by Henry David Thoreau

I have been wanting to read this book for years, and I have owned my copy for at least 10 years. On one hand, I was excited to finally get around the reading it. On the other hand, I really, really didn't like it. And I am aware that my opinion will be very unpopular... … Continue reading Book Review: Walden by Henry David Thoreau

Book Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I've talked about in the past how much of a sucker I am for classic retellings. So when I saw this for $1 at my local book thrift store, I had to pick it up. I mean, it's a dark retelling of The Wizard of Oz, which I grew up with in both book and … Continue reading Book Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Reading Wrap-up June, 2021

I can't believe we're already halfway done with the year. For those who are American, Happy belated 4th of July! I know I'm still recovering from mosquito bites from watching fireworks outdoors. Last month I really got into reading, finishing a total of 19 books. And for the most part I enjoyed them all, even … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up June, 2021

My Favorite Classic Translated Books

Don't get me wrong, I love British authors like Shakespeare and Jane Austen or American authors like Ray Bradbury and H.P. Lovecraft. But as I've gotten older, I've realized so many of my favorite books, both classics and modern alike, weren't originally written in English. So today, I want to share my favorite translated books. … Continue reading My Favorite Classic Translated Books

Book Review: The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren

I don't know why I've been in the mood to read romance (maybe it's the summer beachy feel, not sure). Just after Christmas, I read Lauren's other book, In a Holidaze. It's a Groundhog's Day type story with a Christmasy, romantic twist. While it wasn't a perfect book and I never felt a lot of … Continue reading Book Review: The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren

May 2021 Reading Wrap-up

Another month is gone and I'm amazed that 2021 is already almost halfway over. Time is seriously flying by so quickly! This month I read 11 books, which wasn't great considering I'm on summer break with not that much to do. However, already in June I've read quite a few books, so I'm assuming I'll … Continue reading May 2021 Reading Wrap-up

Author Taste Test: John Green (unpopular Opinions)

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)

Reading Wrap-up April 2021

Last month was a pretty busy one for me with college finals, but not only did all my finals go well, but I was also able to read 12 books. 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

Book Review: Cry The Beloved Country

I discovered this book at the Goodwill a few years ago. To be honest, the only reason I picked it up was because it was an old book set in South Africa. I'm a sucker for classics set in places I don't know much about. And let me just say, I was not disappointed! Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Cry The Beloved Country
