If You Like Sherlock Holmes, Read These Series

I'm a massive fan of Sherlock Holmes, and so I've read quite a few mysteries set during the end of the Victorian era. So today I'm going to share my favorite series which remind me of Sherlock Holmes. I actually did this as a video over on my Youtube channel (if you haven't subscribed already, … Continue reading If You Like Sherlock Holmes, Read These Series

Book Review: The Wilderness of Ruin: A Tale of Madness, Fire, and the Hunt for America’s Youngest Serial Killer by Roseanne Montillo

When it comes to Halloween (and October in general), there are two types of books I crave to read: horror novels, and nonfiction true crime books, especially those about serial killers. So it makes sense why I picked up this book. Like the majority of famous serial killers, I've heard of Jesse Pomeroy before, though … Continue reading Book Review: The Wilderness of Ruin: A Tale of Madness, Fire, and the Hunt for America’s Youngest Serial Killer by Roseanne Montillo

Book Review: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

It seems like I have been reviewing a lot of classic books recently. I must be in a classic mood, or I'm just reading a lot to keep up with my "Favorite Books of the Year" series. Either way, this is a book that has sat on my bookshelf for months, and on my TBR … Continue reading Book Review: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

Book Review: Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

I'm ashamed to say I've never had a great interest to read this book. I have watched two different adaptations and I've hated both of them. Heathcliff and Catherine are both horrible human beings in my opinion and the romance was way too idealized for my taste. However, this is such a famous classic, and … Continue reading Book Review: Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Book Review: And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander

This book is the first of the Lady Emily series, a series I have seen on the shelves of bookstores and libraries alike for years and, despite it being part of one of my favorite genres (historical cozy mysteries), I have never read it before. Until now. When I put it on my TBR, there … Continue reading Book Review: And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander

Book Review: The Five The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold

I mentioned this book a while back in my I Love Spring Book Tag, where I mentioned I was anticipating its release. Well, it's now three months later, I finally got a chance to read the book. Having a pretty good working knowledge of Jack the Ripper, I went into this book expecting for it … Continue reading Book Review: The Five The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold

Book Review: Silas Marner by George Eliot

I'm astonished to think I have never read a single book by George Eliot. She's one of those authors who I've heard of for years but never bothered to read (I feel like there are many authors like that for me). I've been wanting to read Middlemarch, but when I stumbled upon this book at … Continue reading Book Review: Silas Marner by George Eliot

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
