October, 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe October is already over! And as of today I have only four more weeks of my fall semester in college. I will be so excited to be done and have a short break before jumping into spring semester. This month I managed to read more books than last month, but definitely not … Continue reading October, 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Book Review: The Patient by Jasper DeWitt

You know it's almost Halloween, and after reading a few scary Indie books last week, I wanted to conclude Halloween with another horror book. This one is a recent release, and I had honestly never heard of the book or author before stumbling upon it on my library website. However, let me just say it … Continue reading Book Review: The Patient by Jasper DeWitt

Trick and Treat with some Halloween Indie Books

This week I was really in the mood to read something for Halloween. However, I'm trying to read less library books and more books I own. So I decided to dive into some of the Indie ebooks I have on my phone. Usually, I got through Amazon every few months to look for new, indie … Continue reading Trick and Treat with some Halloween Indie Books

Book Haul #7

It has been almost three months since my last book haul (in July) and since then I have accumulated more books (is anyone surprised, because I'm not). It is partially because I have no self-control when it comes to buying cheap books, but also partially because I have discovered a vintage bookshop near my house … Continue reading Book Haul #7

Amazing Lesser Known Dark Academia Books

A few months ago I did a book tag on Dark Academia (you can check it out here). In that post, I defined it as an aesethic which focuses on classic literature and philosophy, especially that of the early 20th century.

Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

I discovered Fredrik Backman the way most people did, through A Man Called Ove. I read it mostly because of the hype, but absolutely fell in love with it. If I had one criticism of that book, however, it would be Backman's unconventional choice of organization, as he spends much time jumping from modern to … Continue reading Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

I'm so excited to be participating in another Reading Rush! I have been doing this read-a-thon for a few years now, and it's one of my favorites.

My Favorite Book of the Year: 1909-1900

We are finally to the turn of the century. It seems like we've been traveling back so fast, and yet I started this series nearly a year ago. Anyway, the first decade of the 1900's marked a shift from old traditional towards a new way of life. Queen Victoria died in 1901, the Wright Brothers … Continue reading My Favorite Book of the Year: 1909-1900

June 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I can't believe it's already the beginning of July. This year indeed has been insane. This month I read 13 books, and they mostly fell in the middle range of rating around three or four stars. There weren't many amazing books I read, but also not many bad books I read. It's getting to be … Continue reading June 2020 Reading Wrap-up

May 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I feel like 2020 is just divulving into chaos...why can't we all not be idiots and replace violence with love? Anyways, I will avoid everything crazy going on and focus on my reading this month. I had a pretty good month, reading 12 books (including two rereads). I'm also starting a big reread for the … Continue reading May 2020 Reading Wrap-up
