Book Review: Rakkety Tam by Brian Jacques

You sick of book reviews yet? Well, don’t worry, because this one will be the last review following BookTubeAThon, as I never did end up finishing my final book, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty (though I will finish it eventually, I promise). Anyway, this series (a.ka., the Redwall series) has been on … Continue reading Book Review: Rakkety Tam by Brian Jacques

Book Review: The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis

I had never heard of this book until I stumbled upon it a few years ago at the Goodwill (my number one place for buying books). Being a massive fan of Lewis since childhood (due entirely to The Chronicles of Narnia), I snatched it up quicker than a fox chases a hare (that got dark … Continue reading Book Review: The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis

Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

I have no idea how I grew up without reading this book. I am probably one of the few kids in the United States that did not read this during childhood years. However, I can safely say I knew this plot only from Muppet’s Treasure Island. I grew up watching that movie multiple times per … Continue reading Book Review: Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson

Book Review: The Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

This is the fourth book I have read by Terry Pratchett, and probably the one I am most familiar with. In 2006, there was a miniseries called Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, starring Michelle Dockery (from Downton Abbey), Marc Warren, David Jason, and other fabulous British actors. I loved the miniseries, and have watched it multiple times … Continue reading Book Review: The Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

This is a childhood book for many people, but for some reason I never read the full book. I had a shorter picture book of it and I watched multiple movies, but never did I actually read the entire book. Since it’s relatively short, I added it to my list of books to read for … Continue reading Book Review: Heidi by Johanna Spyri

Book Review: The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill

This is the first book I completed for BookTubeAThon this month, and I read it in one day. Though, I will say the quality of this book made it easy for me to read quickly. I can say with little reservations that I loved this book, and I am not a massive fantasy fan. But … Continue reading Book Review: The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill

Book Review: Island of the Mad by Laurie R. King

I know I just did a book review on Wednesday, but due to BookTubeAThon, expect a whole lot more book reviews in the next couple weeks (apologies, regular posts will continue soon). Anyway, this is the 15th book in the Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes suspense series. I have been following this series since I … Continue reading Book Review: Island of the Mad by Laurie R. King

Book Review: Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery by Eric Metaxas

When I was about twelve, a movie by the title of Amazing Grace was released in 2006, starring Ioan Gruffudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Romola Garai. It tells the real story of William Wilberforce, who was the main instigator of abolishing the slave trade in Great Britain. I loved the movie. I had never heard of … Continue reading Book Review: Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery by Eric Metaxas

Book Review: My Secret Guide to Paris by Lisa Schroeder

This book was a complete impulse read. On occasion, I’ll browse through the children’s section in the library to see if any books grab my attention. And, to be honest, the one and only reason I picked up this book and decided to read it is because, well, Paris. The idea of a book taking … Continue reading Book Review: My Secret Guide to Paris by Lisa Schroeder

Throwback Book Review: Abarat by Clive Barker

Way back in my middle school days (well, what would have been my middle school days if I hadn’t been homeschooled), I picked up this book from the library, knowing nothing of the author or the series. Let me just say, to most people Clive Barker is a horror writer, but since this is the … Continue reading Throwback Book Review: Abarat by Clive Barker
