The Song of Achilles Playlist

Classics I Read & Loved This Year

At the beginning of 2020, I set a goal to read more classics. In 2019, I read one or two classics, and that was fine with me. But for this year, I decided to try to fit in a couple more classics than usual, and I even made a list. Now, of course, I didn’t stick to said list, but I did manage to read six classics (19th century or earlier). With no further ado, let’s talk classics.

August + September 2020 Reading Wrap-Up

Hi, reader friends. Since I did not do an August wrap-up, I figured I would combine August and September into one post. I didn’t read near as many books these last two months as usual, but thankfully, I really loved the books I did read. Without further ado, let’s talk books!

Without further ado, let’s get into my TBR for the readathon.

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

The mid-year book freak out tag is everywhere on Booktube this time of year. It’s always one of my favorite tags to watch. So this year, I decided to do a post with the mid-year questions. Now, picking just one book for each of these questions was asking a lot of my indecisive personality. SoContinue reading “Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag”
