Pride and Prejudice – Marriages For Each

I always like to check out classics, but they don't always work out for me and it's safe to say that this is one of them. Pride and Prejudice is a novel that's been around for a long time and has even been adapted into a film, which I did watch at some point but… Continue reading Pride and Prejudice – Marriages For Each

Out of Africa – Over-Detailed Memoirs

I love to read the original source of something that I watched. But, sometimes it doesn't live up to my expectations. Maybe I put too much faith in what I was exposed to first that the other version is going to blow my mind. Then when it doesn't I'm disappointed. After seeing the film and… Continue reading Out of Africa – Over-Detailed Memoirs

Why I’m Reading More Books

In a world where we have access to so much entertainment, I find myself reading more and more these days. Ever since covid started, I was cooped at home with not much to do outside of work. When I wasn't always writing or gaming, I began to reintroduce things I didn't do regularly in my… Continue reading Why I’m Reading More Books

No Time To Cry – A Part Of Oneself

With that, I have completed Dawn Rochelle's journey at the final volume of this series (apparently, I think there's one more but I'm assuming this was meant to be the last). After Marlee's passing, we're back to focusing on Dawn herself more. She and Rhonda have started at a new high school as sophomores and… Continue reading No Time To Cry – A Part Of Oneself

So Much To Live For – Sisterly Bonds

We're back on Dawn Rochelle's journey. After her bone marrow transplant, she returns to the cancer camp as a counsellor this time. This was a much different take than the last volume and introduces several new characters such as Marlee, a girl with cancer still on chemo, and Brent, Sandy's brother. I'll admit when I… Continue reading So Much To Live For – Sisterly Bonds

I Want To Live – Don’t Ever Grow Up

Well, that's a wrap on the second book of the Dawn Rochelle series. This one was a lot shorter than its predecessor and I'm bouncing between it and the Kingkiller chronicles reading multiple books at once is something I stopped doing years ago, so I'm not sure why I'm doing it now! Anyway, it's been… Continue reading I Want To Live – Don’t Ever Grow Up

Six Months To Live – The Uncertain Future

This is a book that I read in high school. In the last two years there, I would often pick one period, other than lunchtime that I could spend in the resource room to either read, do some homework, or study for a test. I would often dig around for a book to read and… Continue reading Six Months To Live – The Uncertain Future

The Name of the Wind – Retelling of One Man’s Childhood

Another book complete, it always feels good to finish one, don't you agree? This book I received as a Christmas present and every night I would read several chapters, letting the corners of civilization absorb me. An interesting take about a man now turned innkeeper as he tells his story to a scribe of who… Continue reading The Name of the Wind – Retelling of One Man’s Childhood

What To Say Next – Outlook On My Life

At first, I hesitated as to whether I should review this book while I was still reading it, but as I reached its end, I realized I did have something that I wanted to say about it. This is not the first book I have read by an author on the spectrum, the first was… Continue reading What To Say Next – Outlook On My Life

The Two Princesses of Bamarre – Quest for the Gray Death Cure

Starting off 2022 with another childhood book review that I never got a chance to read by the same author. I always feel like all I do when on the night shift is work and sleep, but when it's quiet, I can do lots of reading. This story takes place in the kingdom of Bamarre.… Continue reading The Two Princesses of Bamarre – Quest for the Gray Death Cure
