Throwback Book Review: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

I read this book in college about five years ago, and absolutely loved it! I grew up watching the 2004 BBC adaptation (which I also love) and in many ways this book is kind of a deeper version of Pride and Prejudice. But recently, since I'm doing the 5 Tomes, 5 Weeks challenge, I felt … Continue reading Throwback Book Review: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

If you've been following my blog for any significant length of time, you've probably heard me mention Rhys Bowen or one of her books.

Book Review: Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky

This book is on pretty much every "top books to read during your lifetime" list. And, after this book sitting forgotten on my bookshelf for a long time (I actually own it on Kindle too, so technically I own two copies), I read it. And I am completely lost for words of this masterpiece! Release: … Continue reading Book Review: Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
