The Book Thief

I had noticed this book from time to time, but I never actually read it until just recently. In my English class, we had to pick a book out of about ten options for our literature group to read and discuss over the next two weeks. When I saw that this was one of the options to pick from, I was excited. It looked like the most interesting choice (also the longest to some of my group’s dismay). Luckily, the rest of the group did agree and we picked The Book Thief...

Hollow City

I took quite a long break between reading the first book, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and reading this sequel. The first book was good, but I wouldn’t have considered it to be one of my favorites. This was the reason that I didn’t end up continuing to read the series. However, after much egging on from my friend, I asked her to loan it to me and I started to read...

April 2017 Book Haul

This is the first time I've ever done one of these (been a lot of those lately). It's also not something I will necessarily do every month, because there might be times where I don't get any books (there's these things called libraries!). However, my local library had a spring sale and I also went to a second hand bookstore, so I figured I might as well do a haul post. All of the synopsis' are copied from Amazon. The images were obtained on Google images...

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

As soon as I’d finished reading the first book, there wasn’t any time to lose. Immediately, I was into the next book, thrilled by the fast-moving plot and dangerous circumstances. Again, I read the book in record time, wishing to finish the series as fast as possible, though another part of me wanted it to last forever. Warning: This review contains spoilers from the first Hunger Games book...

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

This book always seemed to catch my eye. But for some reason, probably my general bustling busyness, I didn’t read it. Man, oh man, was I in for a treat! When I finally did read it, I was astounded, not only by the quality, but also by the ingeniousness in the central ideas. My rating below is a four, though normally, I would say it was not one of my most favorite books. However, the inventiveness and inclusiveness of creative visuals popped it up to a four for me...

Heartless

I figured for my first ever blog post I better do something pretty cool. So, I did something that is actually a fairly new book, but also something special to my heart. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is a classic children’s story and has really affected my life because of all the cool characters. This book was really interesting because of the focus on the antagonist...
