Sherlock stories are just so innately smart and witty that I am not sure many--if any--books have ever been able to replicate at that level. This book nails it for me. Five Stars I adore Holmes and Watson retellings because … Continue reading My Sherlock-loving self is quaking
I read this book for a college class this semester which was exciting because YA books rarely are used in college classes since they're so often not considered "literature." BOO.

Spinning Silver was a phenomenal retelling of a story I … Continue reading Rumpelstiltskin Returns for Another Incredible Retelling

However, I think I'm ready to start venturing into adult fiction. I want to read about 20 somethings since that's where I am at in my life, but … Continue reading Adult Section Recommendations: I need help!

I thought it was an interesting exercise in picking favorite books. Like Regan, I am choosing books based on their publication year, not when I … Continue reading Fav YA books 2010-2019
Friends. FRIENDS. This book was marvelous. I didn't have a lot of expectations going into it. The description really interested me and I read a review about how Asha was a little like Aelin form TOG, but still her own complete character.
