• September Wrap Up and October TBR

    Happy October! In September, I started school again and we’re doing a hybrid schedule (in one day, online the next), so with getting used to that and school work in general, I’ve had a bit of a slower reading month, but I did read five books and I really enjoyed most of them. Also, since I started school, I’m going to add another statistic of required reading, so I can mark any books that I was assigned to read. So, here’s the wrap up! Reading Stats Books Read: Five Pages Read: 1,326 (average of roughly 265 pages per book) Longest Book: Great Expectations (505 pages) Shortest Book: The Deep (166…

  • July Wrap Up and August TBR

So, in July I read eleven books. I also started another (Crime and Punishment) but put it down. The beginning was intriguing but I haven’t felt compelled to continue, though I may pick it up again in the future. Anyways, here are all the books I read this past month. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton I gave this 3.5/5 stars, I…

  • Recent Reads- Summer 2020

    “Recent Reads” is a series that I do where I discuss the books that I’ve read recently, give a small review, and share my thoughts. I find it difficult sometimes to write a full review of every book I read because I don’t always have a lot to say, but sometimes I still want to discuss my thoughts. Anyways, here are some of the books that I’ve read recently. Hamlet by William Shakespeare This play follows Hamlet, the prince of Denmark, seeking revenge on his uncle for murdering his father and stealing the crown. “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.” A lot has been said about Hamlet before,…
