Their ship sunk, Professor Aronnax, his servant Conseil, and Canadian harpooner Ned Land are captured by the terrifying yet enigmatic Captain Nemo and held captive on his submarine, the Nautilus. During the harrowing journey across seas and oceans, the professor witnesses and partakes in many dangerous missions. Large creatures never before seen. Shipwrecks with stranded people. Gold littering the sandy shores. Lost cities. Cold icebergs that threaten to crush them. The struggle for survival.

The group must play along with Captain Nemo if they have any hope of getting free of this prison.

 

First things first, I didn’t realize that this story was more scary than it was adventure. This was nothing like Journey to the Center of the Earth. The tone is so much graver in this book, since the character are a part of this journey against their will. Each new adventure that the Nautilus happened upon had a great build-up! Really got that feeling of uneasiness, like the music from JAWS right before the big ass shark bites the ass of a boat. I loved that feeling. It was eye-widening and sometimes

TLUTS

Following from Aronnax’s POV, each character was very well distinguished. The characters were all cramped together, but had their own independence from each other. Ned Land was going crazy in this submarine and wanted to escape even though that seemed like that opposite of what you think he’d want. Conseil’s greatest pleasure was helping his master, but he had his own opinions and thoughts along with doing his service to Aronnax. Aronnax is utterly mystified and swept up in all of this. He never expected that the creature taking down ships was this submarine.

The antagonist, Captain Nemo, was nothing like I originally thought. He was so intelligent and persuasive. So much so that sometimes I forgot that he was holding this group hostage, though he made them feel like they were a part of his crew. His lack of concern for the dangers

TLUTS

The scenery was amazeballs. So vivid and beautiful. The imagery is so powerful and moving. Verne has a way with words! It’s menacing, yet not. The ocean is a vast space filled with all kinds of wonders, but Verne doesn’t leave out there are a lot of dangers there as well. The balance is incredible.

 

This book was great. The was so much depth, both dark and bright with life and heavy feelings in regard to this journey. It worked my nerves a little here and there. I’m not going to say it’s my ultimate favorite though. It felt dragged out in some spots. And speaking of spots, if they would’ve gotten stuck in the Bermuda Triangle for a spell that would’ve been interesting, too. Do I recommend giving this a read? YES! Though, if you have a fear of the ocean then this may make a great horror story. LOL.

Read on precious bookworms!

There’s a Hole at the Bottom of a Volcano at the Center of the Earth…You Know the Song (Journey to the Centre of the Earth – A Book Review)

Journey to the Centre of the Earth
Author: Jules Verne

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

6/25

 

What is darkness to you is light to me.

Go on a journey to the center of the earth where the crystals formed are beyond beauty’s imagination and the creatures there were thought to be extinct thousands of years ago. Professor Liedenbroek, his nephew, Axel, and their guide and hunter, Hans journey down a dormant volcano tube and find adventure, danger and wondrous things that you could only believe it you saw it for yourself.

 

This book marks 6 out of 25 authors, from my New Year’s resolution, that I’ve never read from before. I was glad to put this one on the list. I’ve been meaning to read more books that change my point of view.

 

At the beginning of science fiction there was Jules Verne. And this is sheer science fiction, down to the very measurements. Reading this book gave me a look at how the genre truly began. It wasn’t’ about flying spaceships and mega-aliens and mutating.

Journey

It was about true science and the magical places it could take me. And while reading this, I felt like all of this was possible.

The imagery and specifics were on point! There wasn’t an unanswered moment. Every part of this journey was so well-informed. Well-informed is the only word I can think of because this is mostly fact-based. Nothing matters but the intense adventure. It was all incredibly vivid and truly a wonder.

Journey

So many dangers! If it’s not the scary creatures that are pretty cool to see because they don’t exist on the surface, then it’s the possibility of starving to death. There’s no harrowing adventure without the life-threatening parts, right? It makes for a great story.

And this was a great story. I enjoyed it immensely. It’s nothing like the movie. NOTHING. There’s not a single woman on this trip, though Axel tried. And the book really put me on edge here and there.

But both of them are pretty great. I will say this; the writing isn’t your typical. There’s a lot of facts. It’s basically how book the is written and it’s why I struggled a little. I alos looked up a lot of the terms Verne used so that I could better understand the characters. It’s straight up a journey. There’s no romance or drama mixed into it. So, you’ll be there for the adventure and nothing else. And you know what? We all deserve a little adventure.

 

Quotables:

“I spent the whole night in one nightmare; in the heart of a volcano, and from the deepest depths of the earth I saw myself tossed up amongst the interplanetary spaces under the form of an eruptive rock.” (Liedenbroek to Axel, p. 63)

“The farther I go the more confidence I feel…” (Liedenbroek,, p. 74)

“Will there be an end? Is the atmospheric condition, having once reached this density, to become final?” (Axel, p. 142)

Midnight Tease

Midnight Tease - Giphy

My bookclan! Good to see you! I mean good to…no, not that either. It’s great of you to visit. I love it when you visit. That’s better.

It’s midnight and this is the Midnight Tease because I never sleep. Just kidding. I sleep….sort of.

I hope the holiday was good and the spring rains are upon you. It’s April!!!! That means flowers and birds and crazy squirrels dive-bombing the ground. (Is that only me who ever sees that?)

Squirrel

Currently, Star Wars: Empire Strikes back is on TV and I’m chowing down on a Nerd Rope. Why not. Jules Verne is waiting on me so at some point I need to get on with that adventure. I’m in a volcano at the moment and traveling to the center of the earth.

I have a lot of reading coming up, some reviews too. Here, I have the list of what is going on this month so that you know what’s coming up and who knows, you may pick up one of these too, or you might’ve already read them.

Also, to keep up with my New Year’s resolution, I’ve got 6 out of 25 authors I’ve read from so far. Many more to go.

So with that said I have a question. Would you guys be interested in a book tag? It would be short, monthly book tags.

As you know, I leave a song at the end of every book review because as much of a bookaholic as I am, I’m also a music junkie. Love listening to tunes. One of the best daydream inducers. Where I’m going with this is, I would put up a self-made book tag based on a certain song. The tag would be three or four books worth. What do you think? I would love feedback. That’s what’s going to encourage or put this idea to rest. I’d love to spruce up this blog with a little extra.

The Mirror Sisters comes from Andrews notes not the woman herself. I’ve been told and told and TOLD to read from the master herself and I’m finally getting to. Took me a little bit to get the whole set but get ready. Andrews is storming the blog. I’m very excited which then makes me a wee bit nervous because I don’t want this to suck. I really don’t I’ve heard how twisted this series gets and I saw the Lifetime movies. (And yes, I’m a sucker for them. They were pretty good in my opinion…for Lifetime anyway.) So I’m a bundle of different jittery emotions. And over books!

So there we go! Lots happening.

I just want to take a moment and say thank you to all of you fantastic book nerds and others! I’ve reached 100 followers and I know, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but it means quite a bit to me. I enjoy sharing what I read. I started this blog because I enjoy that. Well, that and because I think my mom was getting tired of me geeking out at her, and I was wondering why I wasn’t doing this sooner. So, thank you. I do my best to make this enjoyable and fun and something that gets people interested in all kinds of books.

I know I do older books along with newer releases. I’m always up for reading all kinds of books and want you to be as well. Though, I’m not going to lie, I LOVE Young Adult. Mysteries and Thrillers make me sleepy. Classics take me a lot longer to read. ARCs are always exciting because it’s like getting Christmas presents. But all books are worth a shot.

All in all, what I’m saying is, I love you book nerds. Keep on page turning. And find me here whenever you’re looking for an adventure. I may be able to spitfire a book or two.

Just Around the River Bend (Wind in the Willows – A Book Review)

The Wind in the Willows
Author: Kenneth Grahame

On Goodreads

 Wind in the Willows

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

5/25

 

“Look, baby! There goes the great Mr. Toad! And that’s the gallant Water Rat, a terrible fighter, walking o’ long him! And yonder comes the famous Mr. Mole, of whom you so often have heard your father tell!”

In the Wild Wood, Mole, Water Rat, Badger, and the troublesome Toad with his need for speed on a motor car, go on harrowing and fantastical adventures. From a wintery night in the Wild Wood to escaping jail, these creatures whisk away its readers through a magical story. True friendship is experienced and tested with each new obstacle and they’ll rely on each other to make it through.

 

This book marks 5 out of 25 authors, from my New Year’s resolution, that I’ve never read from before. I really wanted to put some classics on this list to encourage and widen my interests. This was such a great choice.

 

Young. Old. It doesn’t matter. This is an amazing story for every age. Much like Winnie the Pooh, this story really personifies these bumbling animals, allowing them to act and do a lot of what humans do. The personification isn’t a lick out of place. Rather, it’s enchanting and felt completely natural, really sweeping me further away into this magical place with these characters.

Wind in the Willows

I must say, Toad is so troublesome! He’s inconsiderate, careless, and rather rude! He’s very lucky to have friends like Mole, Water Rat and Badger. I would’ve flung his slimy bum out in the snow. He truly wound me up and had me looking very angry. Crazy, amphibian…

The book isn’t very long. Definitely one you can read in one sitting. The description from the setting of the Wild Wood to how the animals speak is so beautiful. Every inch of this book is lush and beautiful and wondrous.

The writing is just…I’m seriously speechless. But, something has to be said for something so lyrical. There are songs and poems strewn throughout by the characters. The way each bit flows from the world of the Wild Wood to the homes of the animals to their speech, really swooned me. I could sway to Grahame’s language. Get lost and stay that way. It was just magnificent. So much depth, yet completely accessible.

I honestly don’t have a bad thing to say about this book. I laughed, I scowled, I enjoyed is so much. I always think that classics should be on everybody’s reading list. There are some you like more than others, of course. This one is one of those one I like the best.

 

Quotables:

“Beyond the Wild Wood comes the Wide World.” (Rat to Mole, p. 18)

“The poetry of motion! The real was to travel! The only way to travel! Here today – in next week tomorrow!” (Toad, p. 35)

“There seemed to be no end to this wood, and no beginning, and no difference in it, and, worst of all, no way out.” (Mole, p. 48)

“He sang as he walked, and he walked as he sang, ad got more inflated every minute, But this pride was shortly to have a severe fall.” (Toad, p. 154)

Self-Punishment is Still Punishment (Crime and Punishment – A Book Review)

Crime and Punishment
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Published: 1866

On Goodreads

Crime and Punishment

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

 

Well, of course, everything is in a man’s own hands, and if he lets everything slip through his fingers, it is through sheer cowardice. That’s an axiom. I wonder, though what people fear most. It seems to me that what they are afraid of most is of taking a new step or uttering a new word…

Living in St. Petersburg, a poor student, Raskolnikov, lives in a tight apartment and suddenly believes that he has been fated to kill money-lender & pawn-broker, Alyona Ivanovna and her half-sister Lisaveta. Managing to steal whatever he can grab after the act, he flees. Quickly he falls ill physically and mentally. He worries and begins to obsess about the possibilities of people knowing of what he’s done yet he manages to escape suspicion.

In the midst of his delusions, his sister, Dunya, and his mother come to visit with news that Dunya is to be wed soon. Her previous employer follows her to St. Petersburg after the death of his wife as well. And the attorney investigating the murder may be on to Raskolnikov, though many have come forward and confessed already. Raskolnikov hangs by the smallest of threads.

 

I love classics. I do. They’re the spine to great storytelling, really. That being said, they do take a while to read. The language is dense sometimes. The great depth of detail is sometimes tiring and feels drawn out, but at the same time it’s beautiful. Makes how I feel about them complicated sometimes. LOL.

The story takes place in Petersburg in multiple homes, though mostly in Raskolnikov’s, the main character. Though when ill, he goes to many places, even the police station. A good portion of this book also takes place within Raskolnikov’s mind as he deals with the treachery he committed.

The detail to the settings were very specific down the very wallpaper and lamp and I really liked that. It gives me a clear vision of everything. I enjoy being able to see clearly since my brain turns words into pictures more often than not.

Guilt, poverty, and death are the more common themes I picked up on throughout the story. Raskolnikov is always at odds with himself. While he wants to help other people, he can barely help himself. And he certainly doesn’t like others trying to help him, as it makes him feel inferior and helpless. He also tries his best to avoid talking about what’s caused him to get so uptight and ill. The tone goes hand-in-hand with this. You can feel that as Raskolnikov observes the cruelty of people around him, a few people beating an old horse to horse to death, for example.

One of the biggest questions posed in this book is: Is crime justifiable?

It’s picked up in conversation often as Raskolnikov often hints at what he’s done. Several scenarios are presented in which people argue which is right and which is wrong. It brings s about a very good question. When would crime be acceptable if ever?

I found this to be very interesting because there are many variables to think about when answering a question like this.

 

I enjoy Russian literature, as I’m sure I’ve told you dozens of times. This wasn’t a particular favorite of mine. It felt a bit drawn out, though there was quite a bit going on. It also reminds me quite a bit of the Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe with how haunted the main character is throughout the story. This one is certainly an acquired taste and does pose a valuable question.

If you love classic literature, a good debate, and watching a person lose their sanity then this one’s for you.

 

Quotables:

“Gradually he had arrived at all sorts of interesting conclusions, and, in his opinion, the main reason for it lay not so much in the physical impossibility of concealing a crime as in the criminal itself; the criminal himself, at least almost every criminal, is subject at the moment of the crime to a kind of breakdown of his reasoning faculties and of his will-power, which are replaced by an amazingly childish carelessness.” (Raskolnikov, p. 90)

“Let him have his laugh—let him! I don’t mind. What I want is strength—strength!” (Raskolnikov, p. 208)

“It’s the moon that makes everything so still. It must be asking a riddle.” (Raskolnikov, p. 294)

Midnight Tease

Midnight Tease - Giphy

Hello, starshines!

If you’re up this late then, like me, you’re getting your twinkle on in some way. Whether it’s dancing around the kitchen to ‘September’ by Earth, Wind & Fire (guilty) or maybe finishing that book you started just three hours ago, you’re awake. Come on, we all get a little insomnia. Plus, some of the best movies are on at midnight. I know just the other night, I was finishing up my laundry and Friday Night Lights was on. My heart ached at seeing Lee Thompson Young (The Famous Jett Jackson, Smallville, Rizzoli & Isles). I miss him.

Who is happy that January is over!? It can’t be just me it. The month was dreadfully long. And where I am, it was ridiculously cold. I am ready for spring. I’m even more ready for summer. Two months down, one and a half to go. There were a few exciting things that was happened this month for me. I got some free books: Star Wars. I even got a new calendar that will help me brush up on my epic origami skills! They actually suck but I did make an awesome tee-pee:

Origami

I also went to see Mazerunner: The Death Cure. For anyone who knows me, knows the primary reason is because of this human,

Mazerunner

I’m not going to give anything away. It was a great film. A lot of action and there were a few surprises at some parts. I did the awkward grimace and laugh at those heart-wrenching moments because I’m inhuman and suck at emotions. I really did have a blast and ODed on popcorn. No complaints. I’ve actually considered going to see it again. We’ll see.

Moving on to the important stuff! BOOKS! So I have some book on my queue for this month. I’m currently waiting on a pre-order that I’m beyond ecstatic for.

During this midnight hour, I’m going let you know what’s coming up, what I’m currently flipping through and what is up on the chopping block for review.

So, without further ado!

Skulking in the Shadows (Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde – A Book Review)

Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
Published: 1886

F-D-JH

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

 

If he be Mr. Hyde, I shall be Mr. Seek.

In Victorian London, Dr. Jekyll struggles with an experiment gone wrong. His life is turned upside down from a serum he created that brings a much more darker part of himself to the surface in the form of the disfigured Mr. Hyde. More and more often the doctor is locked away in his own body while the crazed and destructive Mr. Hyde is out on the streets at night terrorizing people and there’s nothing he can do about it. Dr. Jekyll turns to his trusted lawyer, Mr. Utterson, for help before it is too late.

 

I really got sucked into themes and ideas with this book. For a short story it was quite in-depth and was very dramatic. It was quite enjoyable and fast-paced. Dark is an understatement here. A good portion of this takes places at night and most of the characters’ nature match that darkness, which now I will propel deeper into.

This classic novel didn’t lean on the horror genre in my opinion. It felt like more of just a Gothic fictional piece. Mr. Utterson who is investigating this ordeal between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde goes about the story with great detail. He cares deeply for his friend which is why he can’t give up on the doctor and his troubles like many others seemed to do throughout the story. Much of what happened was just tragic, but not scary.

The theme is obvious to all of those that have read this story before: the duality of man-that there is both a good and a bad side to a person that cannot be avoided. (Yin-Yang, etc.)  Throughout the book it is pressed upon that the darker side of man is to be locked away and the key thrown away. This is one of the most common contemplations both in books and in the real world. Who are we? What kind of people are we? It’s a complex question with variables that blur the lines of black and white when you get nitty gritty. Life is never so simple.  There’s always that grey area.

Jekyll and Hyde

However, what about the idea that rumors are like wildfire? That one terrible incident can ruin a person’s life and consume them, forever making them this hideous creature according to other people for the rest of their life, with no hope of return? No amount of apology or repentance can fix this evil deed? Or what if this rumor isn’t even true? This debacle involving the doctor and his serum all starts with a story between Mr. Utterson and his friend about seeing a man who assaulted another person at night. In the dark it can be hard to see all of the features of a person and shadows can certainly morph those features. So while people assumed who it was, was it actually this person? Was it somebody else? While guilt does eat away at the person to blame, I know from personal experience that it can also it eat at a person blamed who is completely innocent. So, I find that

Think

The style really moved me. It’s haunting and chilling with the description of shadows and how they lurk about in the night. Parts of this story are based around letters and stories rather than directly from what is happening at the time. I feel like I don’t get a full view of what may actually be happening; that it’s mostly hearsay from other characters rather than the man it’s actually happening to. When Dr. Jekyll really did get his moment it was too late. He was completely influenced by everyone around him. It was incredibly heavy on him. I found it very interesting.

The characters were very interesting, but not as people, but as in their purpose. I guess it’s tricky to understand. Like, the way they all circled around Dr. Jekyll like sharks. Even Mr. Hyde circled around him. There wasn’t a moment in which I was directly in Dr. Jekyll’s shoes, but he was the main character. He is what the story is all about, but I learned all about him from everybody else. Jekyll’s appearances were very few and in between. It added to my wonderings about if I could trust the information by these characters who professed to know him so well.

This was a great tale that really got me to think about the nature of man, but like I said, there wasn’t anything that really screamed horror like Frankenstein and Dracula. This was more thriller than anything. My anticipation to see Mr. Hyde was ever-growing the further I read. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it. It really got me thinking and from time to time I enjoy a good story that makes me question things in my life/in the world. That’s really what I gained from this.

 

Quotabales:

“I swear to God I will never set eyes on him again. I bind my honour to you that I am done with him in this world. It is all at an end.” (Dr. Jekyll to Utterson, p. 29)

“With every day, and from both sides of my intelligence, the moral and the intellectual, I thus drew steadily nearer to that truth, by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck; that man is not truly one, but truly two.” (Dr. Jekyll, p. 60)
