DEAR FAHRENHEIT 451 by Annie Spence | Review

Dear Dear Fahrenheit 451 by Annie Spence, Since you are a book of letters written to other books, I feel like it’s only fitting that my review of you is also in the form of a letter to a book. (Wow, that was a lot of letters and books.) To be honest, I never even knew you existed until I randomly… Continue reading DEAR FAHRENHEIT 451 by Annie Spence | Review

Why I Don’t Rate Books

You may have noticed that none of my book reviews contain ratings for anything that I read. That's because I don't rate books anymore.  I made the decision to stop rating books a few years ago, right around when the amount of reading I had to do for my English major picked up. As I… Continue reading Why I Don’t Rate Books

THE BIG SHORT by Michael Lewis | Review

As an English major, I’ve never much been a person interested in economics. Economics has always perplexed me as a subject, with its ever-expanding jargon and web of theories (says the current law student…). But at a certain point I acknowledged that I should probably at least have a vague idea of certain economic-related topics… Continue reading THE BIG SHORT by Michael Lewis | Review

THE LIFTED VEIL by George Eliot | Review

To be honest, I knew nothing about The Lifted Veil by George Eliot (1859) before I started reading it—and that’s precisely how I recommend approaching this little novella. I picked it up because I enjoyed Eliot's massive novel Middlemarch and wanted to read more of her writing. However, this Victorian novella is a significant departure from Eliot's… Continue reading THE LIFTED VEIL by George Eliot | Review

OF MICE AND MEN by John Steinbeck | Review

John Steinbeck's classic novel Of Mice and Men is one of those books that people are usually assigned to read in high school; however, for some reason I was never assigned this in all my years of high school and as a college English major. I figured that I should probably read something by Steinbeck since I am a… Continue reading OF MICE AND MEN by John Steinbeck | Review

Top Ten Tuesday?: The ONE character trait I would most love to read about…

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share ten character traits that we love. Instead, I thought I would do something a little different this week. Thinking about potential character traits to talk about in my hypothetical list made me realize that there is one… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday?: The ONE character trait I would most love to read about…
