Summer Book Unhaul 2021

As I mentioned in my book haul last week, one of my goals this year is to unhaul a book for each book I buy. In the last six months, I have bought 37 books. So today I'm unhauling 35 books (okay, so I kind of failed in my goal, but I'm hoping to find … Continue reading Summer Book Unhaul 2021

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. So I thought it would be fun to share with you all the books I've bought from thrift stores so far this year. As my yearly resolution is to get rid of as many books as … Continue reading A Massive Summer Thrift Book Haul

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

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

Fictional Siblings Book Tag – Original

Today, April 10, is National Siblings Day! I wanted to do a fun tag in celebration of this day, but the only book tag I could find was a book tag for siblings to do, not one about siblings in books, so I decided to create my own. This was a very last minute idea...but … Continue reading Fictional Siblings Book Tag – Original

Are Classics Inherently Better Than Modern Books?

Do you ever start really thinking about a topic you're pretty sure only you care about and you know your opinion is pointless and you should be putting more effort into researching your stupid final paper for your Africa in Bondage class, but you continue to think about that topic anyway because it's important to … Continue reading Are Classics Inherently Better Than Modern Books?
