Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

Because I knew nothing, nothing was beneath me. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review Wow… That’s all I can say! I don’t even like Greek Mythology all that much (sorry, not sorry), but I absolutely loved Circe. You do not have to have a background or knowledge of mythology to like this book–I practically know next to…

Book Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

There must be something in books, things we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review I know… I know what you guys are thinking. “She’s just now reading Fahrenheit 451?” Yep, that’s me! Always late to…

Book Review: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review And Then There Were None was my first venture with an Agatha Christie book, which kind of surprises me now, knowing she’s the “Queen of Mystery” and apparently super popular. What can I say? I must be living under a rock. This was also my first venture with an audio book…

Book Review: If He Wakes by Zoe Lea

Book Review: The Power by Naomi Alderman

The shape of power is always the same; it is the shape of a tree. Root to tip, central trunk branching and re-branching, spreading wider in ever-thinner, searching fingers. Book Rating 4.5/5 Book Review Woah, woah, woah. My mind is reeling. I am…dare I say…shooketh!? The world Naomi Alderman builds in The Power is, in…

Book Review: A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay

Book Rating 3/4 Book Review A Head Full of Ghosts was good, but it wasn’t great. I expected to be terrified, to stay up late at night, have nightmares, you name it. I was reading a horror book for a reason! It’s almost Halloween and I wanted to be scared. This novel was told in 3 different…
