Hey bookworms,

I know it’s been kind of quiet on here (save for the four book reviews I just reblogged) so I just wanted to give an update.

I’ve probably mentioned this somewhere in my reviews before, but I’m a writer and because of that I have a blog to showcase it. I’ve been updating that blog for over a year now and a few months back I got the idea that instead of having separate blogs with my writing and book reviews that I should combine them together so that my writing is altogether.

Basically, I’ll reblog my book reviews from my writing blog onto here but this site will probably be solely book reviews and no other book related topics. It’s not that I don’t want to talk about them, it’s just that I’m focusing a lot on writing and I just don’t have the time to focus on particular focused book blog posts.

And thank you all for reading my book reviews and be ready for more! And if you like my writing, maybe check out some of my other stuff on my personal blog!

So I was so happy when my friends gave me this for Christmas a few years ago because I had wanted to read it for forever! Continue reading

“Here’s the truth of the world, here it is. You’re never everything anyone else wants. In the end, it’s going to be you, all alone, on a mountain, or you, all alone, in a hospital room. Love isn’t enough, and you do it anyway. Love isn’t enough, and it’s still this thing that everyone wants,” (Dahvana Headley 216-217).

Honestly, I don’t know a lot about Beowulf. I only read a snippet of it in high school, and picking up this book I knew I’d be reading it more as a book than as an adaption. I was intrigued by the idea of an adaption of Beowulf set in the suburbs, even if my memory on the original myth is fuzzy and incomplete. But still, I enjoyed it, and if anything it made me want to read Beowulf so that I could see the connections Dahvana Headley weaved into her work. Continue reading
