Hello, reader friends! Back in the summer, I read Madeline Miller’s The Song of Achilles. This story reimagines Achilles and Patroclus from Homer’s The Iliad. Set before, during and after the Trojan War, this brilliant novel focuses on love, hope, endurance and violence of war as Miller chronicles the epic story of Patroclus and Achilles.Continue reading “The Song of Achilles Playlist”
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.
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!
Water, Earth, Fire, Air… Isn’t it like coming home? I’m a recent recruit to the Avatar fandom, but I can already feel the inevitable impact this show has had and will have on my life. In our time of need, Netflix came through and added the classic Nickelodeon show to its line-up. I know I’mContinue reading “Books to Read if You Love Avatar The Last Airbender”
July was a bit of a rough month, so my reading suffered just a bit. I didn’t read as much as usual, but I did find a new favorite. So overall, I’d say that balances things about it, right? In total, I read six books last month [two audio books, four physical books]. Without furtherContinue reading “July 2020 Reading Wrap-Up”
It’s time for the 2020 Reading Rush! Earlier this year, I participated in my first Reading Rush-related readathon and had so much fun. So, I decided to make this the first year I participate in the annual Reading Rush that happens every summer. This year, it’s taking place next week from Monday, July 20 – Sunday, July 26. Without further ado, let’s get into my TBR for the readathon.
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”
As you probably noticed, I didn’t do a May wrap-up last month. Honestly, I just didn’t feel like it. The world felt (and still does) feel very heavy. In reaction, I didn’t do a ton of reading in May. But I rebounded in June. So, I just decided to do a combined May and JuneContinue reading “What I Read in May + June 2020”
April was a great reading month for me! I read twelve books total, including the conclusion to a new favorite young adult fantasy series. With no further ado, let’s get into what I read in April 2020.
Today is Earth Day! Not only is today Earth Day, it’s the 50th anniversary of its founding. I’ve always loved being outside and travelling to the National Parks in the US. Along the way, I’ve also found some books that continue to spark my love of nature.
