March 2020 Book Roundup

Reading truly is a funny thing. One minute I'm so into it, then the next I'm just tired of it all even though I've loved reading since elementary (I remember going through my cousin's Nancy Drew books collection). Or maybe reading isn't the funny one and it's actually me, the person whose attention span is … Continue reading March 2020 Book Roundup

Another Unpopular Opinion – 'On the Fence' is Ridiculously Terrible

If you want to be constantly cringing while reading, then by all means, go ahead and read this book. I swear to god, I could not stop being annoyed at this even if I so desperately wanted to.

Okay, Jenny Han, I See You

You know how when you're reading a book and imagining the story in your head, you put some sort of color into their world as well?

I need to talk about this book immediately. Well, without giving away any spoilers that is. And I have to be really careful with that because I might end up blabbing away the good part. I just finished reading this about 5 minutes ago (February 28) and I still haven't picked up my jaw from … Continue reading ‘Between You and Me’ Actually Delivers the Twist

‘They Both Die at the End’ will Ironically Make You Feel Alive

You don't go into reading this book thinking there'd be a happy ending. You don't expect a miracle from a novel with a title "They Both Die At the End" because there simply just would not be and wishful thinking won't help the already set course of this story. So... they both die at the … Continue reading ‘They Both Die at the End’ will Ironically Make You Feel Alive

The Ghostwriter – A Painfully Beautiful Tale

I wanted to read this because I was seriously getting tired of all the young adult and new adult novels that have consumed me for the past month and a half. Don't get me wrong, though. A bunch of them are good reads and I'm happy to have known the characters and to have been … Continue reading The Ghostwriter – A Painfully Beautiful Tale
