Book Review: The English Wife by Lauren Willig…finally a good book from 2018

If you followed my last two reviews on my blog (The Cruel Prince and The Mitford Murders), you’ll notice I haven’t been a fan of books released in 2018. I did find one cozy mystery I finished a couple days ago (Murder and Marble Cake by Nancy McGoven), but besides that so far I hadn’t … Continue reading Book Review: The English Wife by Lauren Willig…finally a good book from 2018

I tried earlier right after I read the book, and I found my thoughts were too jumbled and incoherent to form even … Continue reading Book Review: The Cruel Prince (an unpopular opinion)

A Note on Book Translations: Who Do You Trust?
