September and October Book Haul

Happy Wednesday everyone! I am currently not having a good time, because my landlords decided to terminate the rent, so I am slightly stressed. And with slightly I mean a lot. But, Blogtober must go on, so here I am! I didn’t buy too many books the past two months, but still enough to make a decent post about it. I tend to buy books as both as coping mechanism and as a reward, and I’ve had a lot of bad moments and a lot of good moments lately. So, I spent money on books. That’s just how it is.…

It was the first bookish account I ever made! But my blog followed soon after. Let’s take a look…

However, it seems like this list has not changed a lot over the years and it’s also not exactly fun. Now I’m wondering, is this method of making kids read outdated? Did you enjoy your required reading in high school? When I was in high school, we had to read twelve books from a list of approved literature, of which three books had to be historical. I managed to find a current list of literature,…

The Most Lovable Book Villains

Is it weird to kind of associate Halloween with villainy? Actually now that I think about it, probably not. I think we all love a good villain story, and I can’t even begin to tell you how often I’ve seen people dream of a book in which the protagonist decides to side with the villain. I mean, I dream of that day too. But I’ve also seen some discord online about whether it’s okay to love the bad guys in books so much. These people make valid points. Some of these villains are incredibly toxic, and would be horrible people…
