• October Wrap Up and November TBR

    Happy November! I hope you had a good October! Last month I read 11 books, and I’m hoping to hit 100 by the end of the year (I’m at 89 right now!). Before we get into the books, I also wanted to mention that I started watching Dark on Netflix, it’s like a German Stranger Things, and it’s really good, so if you’re looking for something to watch, I’d definitely recommend it! Now, let’s get into my reading wrap up. Reading Stats Books Read: Eleven Pages Read: 2,772 (roughly 252 pages per book) Longest Book: Wuthering Heights (464 pages) Shortest Book: The Metamorphosis (202 pages according to Goodreads, but I’m…

  • You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson

    This is a spoiler free review of You Should See Me in A Crown by Leah Johnson, a standalone contemporary, which I gave 4/5 stars.

  • Five Star Predictions

Once I’ve read them, I’ll do an update post on whether I was right or not. I’ll also be linking the Goodreads page for every book, so you can read a full summary if you’d like. On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong I’ve read Ocean Vuong’s poetry collection, Night Sky With Exit Wounds, and I absolutely loved it. (I have a full review for it here if you’re interested.) This is his…

  • July Wrap Up and August TBR

    In the past, I’ve never done any monthly wrap ups or TBRs (To Be Read) and instead have done a general post on all the books I read in the year, and while I’m still planning to do that, I thought doing these monthly ones would be fun too. 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…
