2,000 Pages in 10 Hours Readathon

I'm currently free from school for the next few weeks, so last week I decided to attempt a 24-hour readathon, trying to read 6 books, equaling about 2,000 pages.

Mid Year Book Freakout Tag: 2020

Book Review: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie

This book was a random find at the Goodwill months ago and I was drawn to it simply for the fact that it was originally written in Chinese and is set during Mao's rule in China during the 1970's. While I did find it an interesting and quick book to read, I probably won't be … Continue reading Book Review: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie
