I’m Quitting My Blog

Yeah...unfortunately, this is not clickbait. I started this blog back in December of 2016. And this will be my last post for the foreseeable future. I can't believe it's already been almost five years that I've posting on an almost perfect schedule (there are just a handful of times I couldn't post for various reasons). … Continue reading I’m Quitting My Blog

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

A Massive Summer Thrift Book Haul

For the last six months, I've been collecting quite a few books from thrift stores and Goodwills near me.

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
