Happy Friday everyone! Today's book review is on Thomas Mann's Death in Venice. After this book was recommended to me on numerous occasions I felt it was only appropriate to finally getting around to reading it. This book was by far the most sophisticated and thoughtful novel I have read thus far. For me, it … Continue reading Reading the Book.
Happy Friday everyone! So what book will it be this week? Recently I read Daisy Miller by Henry James. It was a very short read (about 60-75 pages depending on your edition) and I decided on it because I wanted to read something from an author I had heard a decent amount about, yet still … Continue reading Book Time

Happy Friday all! Today is Friday and that means another book review. My final book for the semester was Beloved by Toni Morrison. This was the first modern classic we had read in the class, and I had read in general and I am to say the least, pleased. The book is a constant back-and-forth … Continue reading Be-Loving this Book
Happy Friday all! Today is yet another book review. Recently I read my first Virginia Woolf novel (I'm sure you can imagine my excitement) and was quite surprised with my discovery while reading it.

Happiest of Wednesday's everyone! Today I want to talk about what I purchase when I go to a bookstore. If you couldn't already tell, I am a lover of books (aka an extreme bibliophile).

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm coming at you with yet another book review. One of my favorite things about being back in university is the fact that I get to read so many new books, some I'd probably never pick up if I were book shopping on any ordinary day.
