Short stories

I wasn't familiar with the short story world up until the moment I started my studies.  I acquired my bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature in 2018 and I really got to learn a lot about storytelling.

Why I read Wuthering Heights every year 

I have a problem. I recognize this. I try to fight it but it's all in vain. I ready Wuthering Heights every year and here is why: The Moors. I'm so in love with England's countryside and the way the moors are described. Scenery and setting are key in this novel. The characters are so real. They [...]

WINTER IS COMING! With Christmas fast approaching, I don't know which books to stock up on, in order to be all set for the Holidays. I have been meaning to buy some series like the Vampire Academy and the Divergent series since I have only read them in ebook and I would really like to [...]

Orlando by Virginia Woolf

I read this novel last year for my English Literature class and I have to tell you, I was not impressed. I struggled to keep up with Woolf's unique -chaotic- writing style.

Similar [...]

Jane Austen Ruined Me Forever

It's true once you read the ideal romance as presented in Austen's novels you will never be able to go back!   The first novel that actually ruined me and set my standards way up high is of course "Pride and Prejudice". Darcy and Elisabeth are what I am looking for in a relationship and [...]

Shakespearian Readings

As an English Literature student I had to take a course about him, in which I got to read a few of his plays and sonnets. I did not expect to like it as much as I did! I have heard from my peers that he wrote in a unique way and that is why [...]
