Review: Fahrenheit 451

I know, I know, I’m totally late to the show on this one, but you know me – I’m a sucker for the classics. I didn’t have to read this one as required reading in high school. We read Catcher in the Rye, instead. No time is better than now, so I picked up a […]

DUNE

Now, I’ll be honest, I’m a little out of my depth in the sci-fi category. It isn’t what I typically read and only picked up DUNE after it was suggested to me by a close friend. It’s his favorite book, you see, and how could I have never read it before?! He was incredulous. I […]

Review: Marred

Marred by Sue Coletta My rating: 5 of 5 stars   I don’t want to say this book is nightmare fuel, but this isn’t the kind of book you want to read before going to bed. Especially as a woman. Even more so as a single woman living alone in a dark apartment with no one […]

Lords of the Horizons: A History of the Ottoman Empire

Lords of the Horizons: A History of the Ottoman Empire by Jason Goodwin My rating: 5 of 5 stars   I’ll start this by saying I’m going off the path by reviewing this book. I don’t read non-fiction recreationally. In fact, I was required to read this book for a class I am currently taking. […]

And they’ve just plastered the internet telling everyone who will listen or read just how bad your book is. We […]
