WWW Wednesday – October 21, 2020

Happy Wednesday, all! I have to admit, it is going to be a quiet WWW this week. While I got so much reading done for last week, this week, I haven't finished anything. This isn't for lack of desire to read - no slumps here. I have just been so preoccupied with work stuff that … Continue reading WWW Wednesday – October 21, 2020

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

Book Review: “One for the Books,” by Jenn McKinlay

This is going to be a fairly short review, because One for the Books is book 11 in the Library Lover's Series.

ARC Review: “The Inspector of Strange and Unexplained Deaths,” by Olivier Barde-Cabuçon

First of all, I would like to thank Netgalley and Pushkin Press for the opportunity to review this ARC. This imprint of Pushkin, Vertigo, has the unique job of publishing crime fiction from around the globe and providing translations where needed. Such was the case for The Inspector of Strange and Unexplained Deaths, originally published … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Inspector of Strange and Unexplained Deaths,” by Olivier Barde-Cabuçon

October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)

This is probably not comprehensive, or even probably accurate. This month is going to be very hectic for me from some changes in my personal life (more to come, all good things), but man do I want to read everything, particularly fun spooky stuff. October is the month before my birthday, and I live for … Continue reading October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)
