Book Review – Little Women (Louisa May Alcott)

There is no denying that Little Women is a classic. It’s one of those books that if you admit to never having read it, people will give you this look. I had read it once before this time, back in primary school, but I’m almost certain it was an abridged version, made into a smaller…

Book Review – The Narnia Code (Michael Ward)

♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️ I read this book in a couple of days, I just couldn’t put it down! Michael Ward’s explanation for the structure of the Narnia Chronicles is simply mind blowing. As a child, Ward’s parents read The Chronicles of Narnia to him and his siblings, but one thing in particular stood out to him that…

I Will Never Be Too Old For Narnia.

C.S. Lewis himself wrote in the dedication of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to his goddaughter Lucy, “some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” It may be obvious enough already from my starting point in this post, that the stories that got me through my childhood were…

Book Review – Northanger Abbey (Val McDermid)

Book Review – The Light Between Oceans

♠️♠️♠️♠️ I love reading books before I see their films. I haven’t been able to do it a lot in the last few years, due to school and laziness if I’m completely honest with you. In the last couple of months however I have had the opportunity to read The Girl on the Train and The Light…

Book Review – Jane Austen’s First Love

♠♠♠♠ I went in reading this book, not knowing at all what to expect. Which was probably a good thing; because I don’t think I would have bothered with it otherwise. I love Jane Austen, but the Jane Austen portrayed in this is not the way I would have imagined her. Even at age 15….

Book Review – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

This parody of Jane Austen’s classic, is a well put together, entertaining read. One must remember that it is a comedic parody, and not made as an insult to the original writings and author. It did not vary so much from the Pride and Prejudice we all know and love, with the addition of Zombies…
