I have a penchant for reading banned books, apparently.
Though this one isn’t as pleasant as To Kill A Mockingbird. It’s actually really depressing, but a thought-provoking read.
Animal Farm is actually a fairy tale. No, not the fairy tales of princesses and dragons. It’s specifically a book written with flat characters. Character arcs are few and far in between. Continue reading
(Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been a little busy.)
Anyways, isn’t the weather just delightful? *sneezes* The pollen is flying through the air, bugs are biting, and every single flower and tree are releasing some sort of allergen.
So I’ve been stuck indoors, and what do you do when you’re stuck inside? Read. Lots of reading. If you’ve re-read all your favorites, you might just want to scroll through this post to find similar books to your tastes. 😉 Continue reading
Story Time: English class, with my wonderful teacher. (It’s a homeschool class, with maybe 20 students.) We were discussing poetry, and the topic of conversation was William Shakespeare’s Sonnets. One girl (obviously a fangirl,) cried, “I ship it.”
My poor teacher. She was like, “what on earth are you talking about?” So the girl repeated herself. “I ship it.” My teacher had no idea what she was talking about. No one really wanted to try and explain our craziness to the world, so eventually, my teacher gave up, and turned back to discussing people that were like summer days.
Read on for ship worthy fictional couples. ❤ Continue reading
I was googling some things, and I saw this recommended search: “why books should be banned.” Curious, I clicked on the search button.
Basically, the articles that came up said that books put poison in children’s minds that they can’t get out, and are bad for civilization. Books that explore ideas such as racial prejudices, unpopular religious views, adult stuff.
Should we ban those books?
This is my opinion, and you’re welcome to disagree. Continue reading
Yay, it’s time!
Shadows of the Hersweald is the third novella in the Legends of Light series, a fantasy series. It retells the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel and I get to share the cover with you all today! Continue reading
“Where did you learn to break into a lock? You’re eight years old!”
That, my friends, is a start of an epic story. We have all these crime-fighting kids in books and movies, but really, how many eight year olds are going to be on the streets by themselves while working? It’s crazy. Someone has to babysit.
So of course you’ll click the button, right? —->>> Continue reading
Here’s the promised book review. Let’s start by saying that I really didn’t think I would like this book at all. Sure, it received a bronze reader’s award, but it couldn’t be that good. This is Christian fiction we’re talking about here, right?
I was so wrong. Continue reading
I’ve been gone for a while. But I was reading. A lot.
Is anyone else thoroughly loving winter break? (I know I am!) Let’s see, I’ve read… five books in the last three days. It’s been a good past couple of days. 😀 The good news is that I have a few book reviews for you! Continue reading
Christmas is right around the corner, and many adults are starting to quietly panic/celebrate. After all, Christmas is practically synonyms with presents. Children are trying to be good, and parents are buying presents, food, drinks, and trying to stay sane.
All this to say what?
It’s easy to become a little grouchy, shall we say? Continue reading
Bunnicula, authored by James and Deborah Howe, is the only book written for children that I read over and over again. Bunnicula is the only book that with talking animals as the characters that I like. Bunnicula is the only book where I laugh every time I read it. Bunnicula is the only book I’ve ever read that had the subject of vampires in it.
In my opinion, it’s a pretty awesome book, but don’t let the vampire references scare you. Continue reading
