New Year Schedule (+ December Reading Wrap-Up)

Happy New Year! December got really quite busy for me, and I regretted almost immediately creating that page in my journal regarding my posting schedule. But hey, at least I had… hopes and dreams. It just happened I didn’t fulfil them. Bleh. Review System My book review posts are going to change slightly from now… Continue reading New Year Schedule (+ December Reading Wrap-Up)

Review: When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr

  Finished 15/10/2016 HarperCollins Children’s (2008) (first published 1971) | 246 pages 3/5 stars Technically, I’m a few years late with reading this.

Review: The Falconer by Elizabeth May

Finished 21/08/2016 Gollancz (2014) (first published 2013) | 317 pages 4/5 stars This isn’t the kind of book I would normally choose. In fact, in general I’m not that big a fantasy nut – I like a bit of magic realism and elements of the supernatural, but full-on pixies and folklore and epic battles isn’t… Continue reading Review: The Falconer by Elizabeth May
