Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare – Review

I just finished my reread of Lord of Shadows fifteen minutes ago and I scurried to get out the laptop because everything is so fresh in my mind. People ask me all the time what my ultimate favorite book is and honestly I can read all the big classics and the “must read before you […]

The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde – Review

I was bored and I was looking at the free Apple Books when I found The Canterville Ghost. It sounded interesting and it was quite short! I don’t usually read short stories out of the blue like this. I am typically a strict 300pagesisconsideredashortbook typa gal. The Canterville Ghost may be a short read but […]

Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley – Review

  A couple weeks ago I was browsing free ebooks on my phone and landed on Frankenstein. Although I’ve obviously heard of Frankenstein I have never read it nor did I think I would want to read it, since the premise of the novel did not seem to my great interest. But I can affirm […]

Chain of Gold (The Last Hours #1) by Cassandra Clare – Review

Four years ago I walked into my local chapters waiting to get picked up after a day of shopping excursions with some friends. As I roamed the stacks of books aimlessly – since I wasn’t that big of a bookie and usually relied on the box sets my parents chose for me as Christmas presents […]

“People are only invincible in books,” said Cordelia. “I think you will find most of the time, not even then,” said Tessa. “But at least we can always pick up a book and read it anew. Stories offer a thousand fresh starts.” ― Cassandra Clare, Chain of Gold (2020)
