• Required Reading for School

    I recently saw Alexis from The Reading Addict do a post (which you can find here) discussing some books they had to read in school and if they enjoyed them or not. I really liked the idea behind this, so I thought it would be fun to share some of my required reading and some thoughts on them. What I Liked Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult Travels With Charley by John Steinbeck Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper…

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…

  • Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag

    Since it’s around the middle of the year, I’ve decided to do the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag. This tag focuses on all the books you read in the first half of the year. So far this year, I have read 64 books surpassing my goal of 45. You can see more about my reading challenge here if you’re interested.
