C.S. Lewis

In fourth grade I read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and I fell in love. But at the time I didn’t realize that the author had other books.

This year I had to read Till We Have Faces and The Screwtape Letters for Literature class, and I fell in love again. I definitely liked The Screwtape Letters more than Till We Have Faces because I prefer satire, but it was nice to see more fiction from Lewis. Continue reading “C.S. Lewis”

Ink and Bone – Review

InkandBone
Written by Rachel Caine

We all know why I started this blog. Books. (And I was bored, but that’s besides the point.) So when an author writes a book about an evil library and an underground book world, I am so going to read it. I wasn’t disappointed.

Ink and Bone follows the journey of Jess Brightwell and his fellow competitors as they battle for spots to work for the all powerful Library. Jess grew up in a book smuggling family and his father thinks it would be useful to have someone on the inside of the organization which Continue reading “Ink and Bone – Review”

Heart of Darkness – An Analysis

A month or two ago I read Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, and let me tell you; IT IS HORRIFYING.

It is not horrifying in the sense that there’s a bunch of murder (although there is), or because there are some gruesome details (although there are). Heart of Darkness is utterly terrifying because it is based on historical truth. What happens in Heart of Darkness only illustrates what REAL MEN did in the REAL WORLD.

“If Books Were Movies” Tag

I saw this tag a long time ago (can’t remember where), and basically I’m going to list five books I really love that I wish were either a movie or a tv series. It sounds like an easy decision, but I promise you it’s extremely excruciating. I’m basically condemning some of my favorite books to destruction by moving picture because we all know the book is always better than the movie, (except the bloody Maze Runner series!!!)

Let’s begin… Continue reading ““If Books Were Movies” Tag”

Strong Female Character’s: The Epidemic

Today I’m writing about a problem that has had me rankled lately: The Strong-Female Character.

Whenever I’m looking up books, I always come across descriptions of how the female protagonist is STRONG, INDEPENDENT, and all around (excuse the language) BADASS. And every time I pick up one of theses books with these “strong” female characters I’m disappointed and slightly insulted. Continue reading “Strong Female Character’s: The Epidemic”

Alexandre Dumas

I’ve never been a person who reads books for the author because for me only content matters, but Alexander Dumas is without doubt among my favorite authors.

Until a few months ago The Three Musketeers was my favorite book, but ever since reading The Count of Monte Cristo, I’ve been feeling ambivalent.

I love The Three Musketeers because Continue reading “Alexandre Dumas”

Written by Rachel Caine

A little while ago I read both Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, and a retelling of the story by Rachel Caine, The Prince of Shadows. After the experience I had reading Hamlet (I LOVED it!), I was shocked by my dislike for Romeo and Juliet. Continue reading “Star-Crossed Thieves and a Curse of Love”
