What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-Five

Hi Everyone, It’s been awhile since I showed you the last chapter. I finished a number of books like The Women of the Copper Country by Mary Doria Russell, and I started a new title not too long ago that I’d like to share with all of you. American Shaolin – Flying Kicks, Buddhist Monks,Continue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-Five”

Vita Nostra Book Review

Hello Everybody! I hope you all had a great New Years! I sure did!

A book so confusing that you have toContinue reading “Vita Nostra Book Review”

What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-Four

Hi Everybody, I hope the Christmas shopping is going well so far, and for my Jewish readers, I hope you all had a great Hanukkah! I finished The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern recently, and started reading two more titles that I’d like to show you all! So let’s begin! Once Upon a Winter: AContinue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-Four”

Eleanor & Park Book Review

Lately, I’ve been thinking about novels that have been considered problematic within the last few years. Some have been labeled that way for decades. But, does that mean readers are not allowed to read them anymore? I don’t think so. To understand why a book is deemed an issue, one must know the context –Continue reading “Eleanor & Park Book Review”

What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-Three

Hi Everyone, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I sure did! I ate great food, played fun games, and complained about the Lions losing…again. I also finished For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway and replaced it with something that could be described as its complete opposite. A Snicker of Magic by NatalieContinue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-Three”

Love, Pride, Virtue, and Fate Book Review

There’s no doubt that reading helps people learn about a variety of subjects, especially those that they never knew about before. What makes this possible is how the material is presented. If it’s displayed in an accessible manner, readers will be able to not only learn, but also enjoy it. I thought about this aspectContinue reading “Love, Pride, Virtue, and Fate Book Review”

Legends of the Fall Book Review

I always like to review books from authors from my home state of Michigan. So today, I present to you a special one as parts of this book have been adapted into two movies (I’ll review both of them someday). It’s Jim Harrison’s 1979 debut set of novellas Legends of the Fall. He is knownContinue reading “Legends of the Fall Book Review”

What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-One

Hi Everybody! It’s been awhile since the last chapter, but I hope everyone is having a great October! For me, it’s been good, but a little stressful due to wedding planning. I’m tying the knot in less than 3 weeks. Luckily, I’ve been reading Dalva by Jim Harrison, The Marxist Revolution: How Chico, Harpo, Groucho,Continue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Twenty-One”

The Lesser Blessed Book Review

Warning: Some elements of this review may not be suitable for those under the age of 14. When readers think of the classics, what do they often think about? The Catcher in the Rye? Pride and Prejudice? The Great Gatsby? In other words, works by white and mostly male authors who are dead. Luckily, CanadaContinue reading “The Lesser Blessed Book Review”

I Owe You One Book Review

Anyone who has read romance novels will know how predictable they can get. Some like the familiarity, while others want something more atypical. For me, it depends if I’m reading it before going to bed, or if I’m doing that during the daytime. I bring all of this up because I read I Owe YouContinue reading “I Owe You One Book Review”
