What Am I Reading – Chapter Forty-One

Hi Everybody, I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving! I sure did with family and friends as we yelled at the Lions and cheered on the Wolverines! Because I did so much, I haven’t had much time to read, yet I finished The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson today.Continue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Forty-One”

Firekeeper’s Daughter Book Review

Content warning: This review contains brief discussions on drugs and sexual assault. A long time ago, I mentioned about the success of Where the Crawdads Sing and if the hype was worth it. With that book, I was mixed despite the praises coming from everywhere (but I still gave it 4 stars). Since 2018, plentyContinue reading “Firekeeper’s Daughter Book Review”

Britt-Marie Was Here Book Review

When an author achieves success, they sometimes repeat the same formula to capture lightning in a bottle twice. Personally, I don’t have a problem with this as long as the book is still compelling in other ways. This was the case when I read Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman – his third novel. ItContinue reading “Britt-Marie Was Here Book Review”

What Am I Reading – Chapter Forty

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a great Halloween! I sure did with seeing all the kids trick-or-treating in my neighborhood! I still have plenty of candy leftover. I can’t believe that I’ve been doing this for 40 chapters! Before you know it, it’s going to be 50! I’ll have something planned for theContinue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Forty”

The Outsider Book Review

Since today is Halloween, it’s inevitable that I will once again look at a book by Stephen King. This time, it’s his 2018 novel The Outsider. The best way that I can describe it is what if King wrote a 15-part episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Monk, and The X-Files in thatContinue reading “The Outsider Book Review”

The Night Circus Book Review

Have you ever read something that was so enchanting and baffling that you needed some time to think about it? That recently happened to me when I finished The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. At first, I wasn’t sure what to think about it. Now, I realize that it’s full of wonder and enhancement, butContinue reading “The Night Circus Book Review”

What Am I Reading – Chapter Thirty-Nine

Hi Everybody! I hope everyone’s having a great October so far. I sure have! My job as an archivist will become permanent very soon. I’m also getting my cosplay ready for Youmacon! Even though I have a lot on my plate, I still managed to find time to read some new books. They are someContinue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Thirty-Nine”

Hour of the Witch Book Review

Content warning: this book review will discuss domestic abuse, sexism, and briefly suicide. There are certain books that might not sit right with readers for a variety of reasons. They may be tough to get through but are worth it in the end. I encountered a novel like this after reading Hour of the WitchContinue reading “Hour of the Witch Book Review”

What Am I Reading – Chapter Thirty-Eight

Hi Everybody, I hope all of you had a great Labor Day weekend and a wonderful September! I certainly did, especially with my birthday being last week! I made schnitzel and spaetzle as well as went to trivia! Anyway, it’s been awhile since the last chapter, and I’ve also spent last month reading plenty ofContinue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Thirty-Eight”

The Fountainhead Movie Review

Content warning: Suicide and toxic relationships will be discussed in this review. Whenever a film adaptation of a novel comes out, there will always be people who will say, “The book is better than the movie.” For a lot of the time, that sentiment is true. However, there are instances in which people will assertContinue reading “The Fountainhead Movie Review”
