Book Review: The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen

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. I'm a great fan of hers and have read and loved both her Molly Murphy Series and Her Royal Spyness Series. In the last couple of years, she's started coming out … Continue reading Book Review: The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen

Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

On the rare occasion I will read a Middle Grade book, and 9 out of 10 times, I will really enjoy it. With YA novels, the chances are usually as low as 3 out of 10, so it makes me wonder why I don't read more Middle Grade books. Anyway, I spotted this book a … Continue reading Book Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

Book Review: The Alienist by Caleb Carr

No, this is not a book about aliens, as the title might make you surmise. Instead, it is a historical mystery about a psychologist, known at the time as an “alienist.” I was introduced to this book through its TV series adaptation released early in 2018, starring Luke Evans, Dakota Fanning, and Daniel Bruhl. I … Continue reading Book Review: The Alienist by Caleb Carr

TV Series Review: Riverdale

This series has been on my radar since it started airing at the beginning of 2017. And since the third season just started, I thought it would be the perfect time to binge-watch the first two seasons. There is one main reason I avoided this drama like wildfire and one reason I finally decided to … Continue reading TV Series Review: Riverdale

Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

This is the first book I read for Spooktober, and I thought it would be fun to read a classic horror. I’m surprised at how I never thought to read this book before, as I know the idea so well. Whether I’ve seen it featured in The Pagemaster (great movie) or The League of Extraordinary … Continue reading Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Indie Book Review The Verona Exchange by Lauren B. Grossman and Bernard Jaroslaw

For the handful of people who were following my blog way back in March of this year, you may (but most probably not) remember that I did a review for The Golden Peacock by Lauren Grossman. If you know nothing of it, I advise you read that review first, since this book is its sequel. … Continue reading Indie Book Review The Verona Exchange by Lauren B. Grossman and Bernard Jaroslaw

Book Review: The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters

A couple months ago, I was catching up on trailers for all the newest movies coming out and I came upon a movie called The Little Stranger, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, and Will Poulter. The plot looked really interesting, so I searched it on Wikipedia, only to find it was based on a book…this … Continue reading Book Review: The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters

Book Review: The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog by John R. Erickson

Where do I start with my experience with this book and the series that follows it? Rewind about seventeen years to a tiny library in Sherwood, Oregon, which was my first library. I happened upon a book about a dog who protected a ranch and loved it. Now flash-forward to the present day, I have … Continue reading Book Review: The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog by John R. Erickson
