GIFTED | Since I have an almost 4-year-old daughter who loves reading and my first-year master’s thesis is about children’s books, I thought it would be appropriate to start reviewing children’s books on my blog as well. For my first children’s books review, I will review three of Beffy Parkin’s books – Environmental Health, The Macroodelzig, and Don’t Eat Charlie Cheese.
I started reading In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware during the Pinse trip back in June, but after the trip I have not had much time to sit down and finish it until now.
Back during the summer I finished listening to the audiobook of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson on Libby, and now I wanted to share my thoughts on it.
In my What To Do When You Don’t Like a Book post, I shared that I did not like Library of Souls, but I was looking forward to reading A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs since I wanted to know where the story would go next. Was the series able to redeem itself?
I have read Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, The Upside of Unrequited, and Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli. I loved the first two books, so I was excited when I found out she was co-writing a book with Adam Silvera (who I have not read any of his books) called What If It’s Us. I listened to the audiobook not that long ago, and now I want to share my review.
Every now and then I come across a book I do not like whether it is part of a series like Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs or a standalone book like The Girls by Emma Cline. In this post I want to talk about what I do when a book lets me down.
Last month I finished listening to the audiobook of Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, and since I watched both seasons of the series on Netflix, I wanted to compare the book to the series.
