Book Review: The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up

Just in time for the new year, a review about a decluttering book! I’ll admit that when Marie Kondo first became a sensation, I was pretty skeptical. I tried to read her book but it was one of those that I ended up skimming over, going “meh this isn’t for me” and then returning itContinue reading “Book Review: The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up”

Book Review: The Child Thief

The Child Thief by Brom has been on my reading list for a good long time, as has been The Devil’s Rose and Krampus: The Yule Lord. I figured that now that I’m done with the 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, I’d sit down and work on a few other books that have been on myContinue reading “Book Review: The Child Thief”

Book Review: Hicotea

I read Nightlights by Lorena Alvarez Gomez earlier this year and fell in love with it. I loved the story, but I especially loved her artwork. Naturally, when I saw that Nightlights had a sequel, I had to go pick up Hicotea. I think I liked this one even more than the first, and Lorena’sContinue reading “Book Review: Hicotea”

2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge Finished!

So this year I decided to do my first ever Popsugar Reading Challenge. Will I be doing it again next year? Absolutely. I’ve read a ton of books this year (and I’m still not done) but I feel like this challenge really helped me to reach out and choose books that I normally wouldn’t have,Continue reading “2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge Finished!”

Book Review: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

I had such mixed feelings about this book. I think my favorite thing about it was that the front cover sets you up for a little of what you would expect. As I was reading, I had a lot of flashbacks to my own childhood. Not that my parents were strict, and I’m only 1/8thContinue reading “Book Review: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother”

Book Review: This Body’s Not Big Enough for Both of Us

This was a fun, entertaining read. It reminded me a lot of a comic book, with the crazy action scenes, plot twists, clich├ęs and pop-culture references, and I enjoyed Kimrean. I often wondered how on earth Kimrean could function, though, as both A and Z are so vastly different, it really was like having twoContinue reading “Book Review: This Body’s Not Big Enough for Both of Us”

Book Review: Happiness Project

So it’s been a long time since I did a book review here, but books are one of my many passions so I decided I’d start reviewing again with a book that is about the pursuit of happiness. I found myself really enjoying this book. I liked that the author could be honest with herselfContinue reading “Book Review: Happiness Project”

Book Review: Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

I feel like I need to tell you that Sleeping Beauties was my very first novel by Stephen King. I’m familiar with some of his others from watching the movies associated with them. It, Christine, The Green Mile, etcetera, but I had never actually sat down to read one of his books until this one.Continue reading “Book Review: Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King”

Book Review: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

Before We Were Yours was a book that I wasn’t sure I would enjoy when I picked it up. I love historical fiction, but the time period wasn’t something I found fascinating before. The novel is about a family torn apart by Georgia Tann the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, and the conditions that the childrenContinue reading “Book Review: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate”

Book Review: Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey

I would have to say that this book is one of my favorites that I’ve read lately. I was familiar with Shakespeare’s Tempest, and it’s actually one of my favorites of his plays. Miranda and Caliban is a retelling of The Tempest, and in my opinion excellently done. I loved how much detail was putContinue reading “Book Review: Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey”
