The Old & The New

I haven’t written a blog post in a very long time. Mostly because I haven’t had any idea what to do with this space. 2020 was a trying year for all of us, and although I want to believe that I was largely very positive, optimistic and light-hearted, this whole situation has started to grateContinue reading “The Old & The New”

Weekend Recaps ~ Second Chances & New Favourites

Well, well, well has 2020 been a year of change and transformation, or what? It’s no secret on this blog that I hated the book Stalking Jack the Ripper.

That being said, I feel that it was almost fitting that I read this novelContinue reading “The Book Thief ~ #JNGReads”

The White Queen – #JNGReads

This is partly because I don’t even know that it should be classified as a novel, and the writing style and structure doesn’t really fit exactly within my knowledge of the genre of historicalContinue reading “The White Queen – #JNGReads”
