The Wicked King by Holly Black

To say I was excited for this book would be a gross understatement. All I could think about since reading The Cruel Prince in January last year was this how much I wanted to read The Wicked King. Was it worth the wait? Hell yes! my review of The Wicked King Now, I read this immediately upon its release in January but I wanted to re-read it again before posting […]

A Quiet Place by Peter D. Burchard

Review A Quiet Place by Peter D. Burchard wasn’t a bad book necessarily but it just felt kinda… pointless? Not really sure how I felt about it.

The Morning Gift by Eva Ibbotson

I had to read this book – even if just for the sole reason that the main character shares my first name! On a more serious note, this book really was a fantastic read. This was a wonderful story about a young girl called Ruth (great name btw!) who flees Nazi-occupied Austria when her Jewish heritage puts her in danger. Her family have already traveled to London but Ruth comes across […]
