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

5 Classics for November

In this series, I recommend five classics each month that remind me of that particular time of the year. Although most people seem to dislike November (at least in New England where I live) because all of the pretty leaves die and everything is dead, it's actually my favorite month of the year. This might… Continue reading 5 Classics for November

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

I figured that I should probably read something by Steinbeck since I am a… Continue reading OF MICE AND MEN by John Steinbeck | Review

5 Classics for September

It's time for another monthly recommendation! (Miss my August post?) In this series, I recommend five classics each month that remind me of that particular time of the year. Because I've been a student my entire life (wooo law school!) I always automatically associate September with the start of a shiny new school year. Everything… Continue reading 5 Classics for September
