Book Review: The Adventures Of Lola by Jade Harley

Books like The Adventures Of Lola remind me why, even at 21, I still wholeheartedly love reading middle grade stories. They offer a fresh, funny perspective on life that may go over our heads as we get older and start to get used to the normal day-to-day "adulting." The Adventures of Lola follows a spunky,… Continue reading Book Review: The Adventures Of Lola by Jade Harley

These Are The Top 10 Books Americans Tried To Ban In 2016

Book Review: Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone By J.K. Rowling

Case in point, I began the Harry Potter series a… Continue reading Book Review: Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone By J.K. Rowling

Book Review: Lord of the Flies by: William Golding

This book was assigned to me in school ( 7th grade English, I remember)! Going in, I didn't know what to think of this story but overall I really did enjoy this book. It's definitely not a happy-go-lucky-story with a happy ending, but wow the middle to the ending is really what made the story… Continue reading Book Review: Lord of the Flies by: William Golding

Book Review: Ender’s Game (The Ender Quintet # 1) by: Orson Scott Card

  Normally, I'm not really into Sci-Fi books or stories but I had to read this one in middle school. And... it wasn't half bad! I really didn't care too much for reading assignments in school because I never thought that the books were really all that interesting as ones I usually read but I… Continue reading Book Review: Ender’s Game (The Ender Quintet # 1) by: Orson Scott Card
