1984 and Topics of Discussion

Dear reader, 1984 is absolutely fantastic. The novel is unlike any book I had to read for school before. I’m not hating on the other books I was forced to read, but 1984 is a book I would’ve read even if I wasn’t assigned to read it. It’s mysterious, clever, creative… The only other dystopian books […]

Of Big Brother and Quotes

Dear reader, I started reading 1984 by George Orwell recently, and I’m super stoked about it! I’ve heard great things about this particular novel. I’ve read Orwell’s Animal Farm, and I absolutely loved it. This famous quote from the book kept ringing in my ear throughout the novel: “All animals are equal, but some animals are […]

Heart of Darkness

I like to pre-download them on my Kindle so that I have them ready to go. […]

I blasted […]

It was a fantastic read, and ever since then, I’ve found myself wanting to read more and more. I’ve downloaded a ton of books that friends and […]

The Big Bang Frankenstein

Dear reader, I was watching The Big Bang Theory (my favorite TV show) when I recognized the poem that Sheldon references (The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot): “To paraphrase T.S. Eliot, ‘This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with  nephew.’” (The actual verse is “This is the way the world ends / […]
