Book Review: “Airman” by Eoin Colfer

Eoin Colfer was a huge part of my childhood. Or, to be more accurate, my middle school years. I blazed through his Artemis Fowl series and The Wish List, and then in high school, I discovered Airman. I'm happy to say that this YA novel has held up over the years since I last read it. This is … Continue reading Book Review: “Airman” by Eoin Colfer

Book Review: “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah

This is the beautiful story of two sisters in World War II, as they attempt to navigate their way through a treacherous new world. I've always enjoyed reading historical fiction about World War II. Of course, as with any historical fiction, there are good ones and there are bad ones. This one happens to be … Continue reading Book Review: “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah

Recipe Review: Mamaw Charlotte’s Chicken Stew

I know it's been quite a while since I posted a recipe here, and even though I've said that I was going to start being more active again, one way or another, things have gotten in the way. I'll try and have a big update thing on Saturday (if I remember!), but for now, let's … Continue reading Recipe Review: Mamaw Charlotte’s Chicken Stew

Book Review: “Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary” by Martha Brockenbrough

This is a book I came across a few months ago at the library (although I'm writing this in the beginning of October, so I found this the last week of September), and since it had Hamilton on the front, of course I picked it up. I have a deep obsession with Alexander Hamilton, thanks … Continue reading Book Review: “Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary” by Martha Brockenbrough

Top 5 Authors New to Me in 2017

Wow, y'all. I want to start off this post by humbly apologizing for completely disappearing on you. Even though I've been free from anything school-related for almost two weeks now, I somehow haven't found the time to blog anything. I even missed last week's T5T! I'm here to remedy my long (to me) absence. I can't … Continue reading Top 5 Authors New to Me in 2017

Book Review: “The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women” by Kate Moore

I am going to start off this review with a warning: if you are the slightest bit squeamish, this is not the book for you (and, quite possibly, not the book review for you). This nonfiction account of the dial-painters of the 1920s and 1930s goes into explicit detail about the physical ailments the factory … Continue reading Book Review: “The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women” by Kate Moore

Book Review: “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson

I've don't really review non-fiction books on this blog because I prefer reading in the fantasy and science fiction genres. I find it very hard to review books that are fact-based, because you're not really judging the content but rather the way the author presents the content. I am happy to say Bryson presents the … Continue reading Book Review: “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson
