Book Review: The Mitford Murders

I am absolutely obsessed with historical mysteries. I read a lot of them, but (due to their similarities) I haven’t done a review on any. So today that will all change with this one…for the worse. This book was released on January 23, 2018 (so about a month ago as of this post). It features … Continue reading Book Review: The Mitford Murders

Book Review: The Cruel Prince (an unpopular opinion)

I feel like everyone and their mother is writing reviews for this book, so why not add one more to the mix. This is the second time I’m trying to write this review. 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)

Book Review: A Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

This book has been on my TBR longer than I even kept a list of my TBR. Since grade school I have been meaning to read this book, and yet for some unexplainable reason (a mixture of procrastination and pure laziness) I never got around to until now. Not only is this book featured on … Continue reading Book Review: A Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Book Review: Ophelia by Lisa M. Klein

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ll probably have heard me mention my great love of Shakespeare. If you gave me that ultimatum to choose one author that I could read for the rest of my life, it would be he. Back when I was a teenager, I loved reading modern retellings of … Continue reading Book Review: Ophelia by Lisa M. Klein

Book Review: Death Comes As the End by Agatha Christie

When most think of Agatha Christie, a cheeky Belgium detective with an egg-shaped head or a sweet old lady who knits too much and has a knack for solving strange deaths comes to mind. The first book I read by Agatha Christie was Death on the Nile back when I was twelve or thirteen and … Continue reading Book Review: Death Comes As the End by Agatha Christie

Book Review: A Zombies Christmas Carol by Jim McCann

I discovered this book a couple months ago when I was reading another blogger’s review of it and immediately I had to put it on my TBR. Although I rarely enjoy comics in general, I happen to love modern, darker twists on classics, whether it is the gruesome Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or the … Continue reading Book Review: A Zombies Christmas Carol by Jim McCann

Book Review: The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett

This book is the first book of Pratchett’s infamous fantasy series Discworld, and the third book I have read in this series (following Soul Music and Guards! Guards!). It was originally published 1983 and is Pratchett’s first full published book. The story revolves around a pretty useless wizard Rincewind who offers his services as a … Continue reading Book Review: The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett

Book Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

I watched the first season of the TV show based on this book series back a couple years ago and I mostly enjoyed it. I mean, it’s certainly wasn’t Lord of the Rings, but it’s a nice, interesting historical romance. The book has been on my TBR since (for over three years) and finally this … Continue reading Book Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Book Review: The Clockwork Dynasty by Daniel H. Wilson

I rarely read fantasy, mostly because that genre involves long series with countless characters that never seem to come to an end, and I prefer reading stand-alone books. But in this case, I could not simply stand by and not read this book for two reasons. First, I’m obsessed with the historical brilliance of automata, … Continue reading Book Review: The Clockwork Dynasty by Daniel H. Wilson

Book Review: The Diplomat’s Daughter by Karin Tanabe

Have you ever picked up a book just for the setting, even if the plot sounds atrocious? Well, I have a few times and this book in one example. I happen to love stories set during the two World Wars, and especially those featuring Asian cultures in a meaningful way. So, while this is essentially … Continue reading Book Review: The Diplomat’s Daughter by Karin Tanabe
