Book Review: The Old Man and the Sea by Earnest Hemingway - K M Tanner

Book Review: The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

This is going to be a short review for a short book. Unfortunately it isn’t short enough. Not my review. The book. I wanted to love this. I didn’t. To start, The Old Man and the Sea is boring!

I’ll start this review by sharing perhaps the best review of a book I’ve ever read.

New Year New Blog

As you’ve likely noticed it’s been a long time since I wrote here. A really long time. I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog over the holiday period and I’m feeling refreshed now after a new year, a wedding and honeymoon in New Zealand. 💙

So unlike my first ever post where I said I would never do reviews, I’ve changed my mind and I’m going to start with the first book I finished this year. So there will be a lot of reviews (though I’ve set my Goodreads challenge at just thirty this year as I’m tackling some longer books like War & Peace which has been on my TBR forever).

When do you stop reading a book? At what point do you decide it's time to call it quits?

When do You Stop Reading a Book?

When do you stop reading a book? As soon as it becomes too boring, when the pace starts to slow, at the first page when you don’t like the opening line or do you dig a little deeper, trying desperately to hold on and finish what you started?

I’ll admit, I’m definitely the latter type. I will try to finish every book I start until that little voice in my head that tells me I’m wasting time on a bad or boring-to-me book when I could be reading something I really love, or at the very least like. I know it’s illogical.

  • When I don’t like a television show that’s on, I’ll immediately change the channel
  • When I don’t like the song that’s playing, I’ll immediately skip it

I Ship Weird Relationships or Wierdships

Let’s get one thing straight, I’m not talking about made-up relationships here. Not like when people ship Draco and Harry. I’m talking about relationships in movies, tv shows and of course books where there is an actual or implied relationship going on. You probably have a bunch of weirdships as well and I want to know all about them in the comments. Continue reading “I Ship Weird Relationships or Wierdships”

Always Books. Never Boring.

Welcome to my blog. While this is my very first blog post here, I’m in no way a blogging n00b. In fact, I’m a professional blogger, writer and digital marketer, but I won’t be talking about that here. This blog is going to be all about books. Nope. Not a review blog. I won’t be reviewing any books to share though I’m sure you’ll discover all my favourites in no time. If you want read my reviews, follow me on goodreads. Continue reading “Always Books. Never Boring.”
