The Miniaturist – Jessie Burton

I was recommended this book by a co-worker and as it was highly praised I was really excited to get into it. I didn't like this book much and I'm afraid this is going to be something of a rant.

Never had I… Continue reading A Natural History of Dragons – Marie Brennan

Naturally, I looked into it. Β I liked what I read on Goodreads and I got a copy for my Kindle. My… Continue reading Unwind – Neal Shusterman
