Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

Phew, what a week. It took me forever to finish Hallowe'een Party, partly because it was a bit disappointing and partly because, I am happy to announce, I am starting a new job next week. So last week was a veritable shitshow of tying up loose ends and saying goodbye to beloved coworkers from afar, … Continue reading Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

Down the TBR Hole #12

Since I haven't made good progress on my reading this week, I think it is time for a good TBR cleanup. I managed to remove 6 out of 10 books during my last TBR cleanup, which was a feat and a half. This session, I am feeling slightly less ambitious. A while ago, I discovered this … Continue reading Down the TBR Hole #12

Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

It has been way too long since I have written a real review. After promising myself not to get into a slump, I lingered while reading Murder on Cold Street and took a full week to finish it.

Book Review: “The Orphan of Cemetery Hill,” by Hester Fox

I am very delinquent on this review - this week has been hectic, since I am changing jobs in a couple of weeks and needed to get affairs in order. As such, I read The Orphan of Cemetery Hill in almost no time, but took almost a week to review it. This is my first … Continue reading Book Review: “The Orphan of Cemetery Hill,” by Hester Fox

Book Review: “The Left-Handed Booksellers of London,” by Garth Nix

I was so so pleased to finally bang down my ARC pile and get to read The Left-Handed Booksellers of London. Garth Nix played a massive part in my life as a middle grade and YA reader - his Abhorsen series brought me life. I even got to write about it for my senior thesis … Continue reading Book Review: “The Left-Handed Booksellers of London,” by Garth Nix

WWW Wednesday – October 14, 2020

Happy Wednesday, all! Today was a wonderful day to wake up to, since it is the first day that it hasn't rained all week. Don't get me wrong, I love rain, but it was a lot. So, I woke up today excited for the WWW challenge. The WWW Wednesday meme is currently hosted by Sam … Continue reading WWW Wednesday – October 14, 2020
