Review Dump

Hey there Sports Fans! So I realize that I’ve been M.I.A. constantly. It’s just who I am now. I’m so far behind that most of these are from LAST SUMMER. What. On. Earth. So I’m  going to just dump a handful of short reviews on you. The Bookstore—Deborah Meyler  This book didn’t get a fairContinue reading “Review Dump”

Death Comes to Pemberley–P.D. James

This is a decent “sequel” to Pride and Prejudice.  Felt like it picked up right where we left off. And also kind of felt like Downton Abbey.  I liked the writing, it was a more readable Jane Austen (I know, I know, what a shit thing to say, but we all know how it isContinue reading “Death Comes to Pemberley–P.D. James”

Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm–Kate Douglas Wiggin

Grain of salt here: This is a children’s book. And I usually don’t like childrens books that are classics just because I find them quite boring and like nothing happens. (Generational gap, I suppose.) This was no exception. It’s about a little girl who is lovely, but a bit of a show off. She isContinue reading “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm–Kate Douglas Wiggin”

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child–J.K. Rowling, John Thorne, Jack Tiffany

I wish I had seen this in play form. This was so interesting and cool! Even though JK Rowling didn’t write the play itself, she did approve of this and it’s based on a short story she wrote. I missed my people. This is the only universe that’s ever felt completely like home to me.Continue reading “Harry Potter and The Cursed Child–J.K. Rowling, John Thorne, Jack Tiffany”

The Jungle Book–Rudyard Kipling

We all know what The Jungle Book is about yes? Okay. I really liked it, but I don’t know that I should’ve been reading it to my little cousin. There’s a lot of carnage in here. Like a lot. It even had a drawing in there of a dead/dying animal. It was not okay. However,Continue reading “The Jungle Book–Rudyard Kipling”

The Roald Dahl Collection

Fantastic Mr. Fox Admittedly, I didn’t know Roald Dahl even wrote this. I thought it came from the likes of someone with a twisted mind like Tim Burton. Well, given what his other books, I wasn’t totally wrong. This book was good, but had some serious darkness in it. I didn’t like reading to theContinue reading “The Roald Dahl Collection”

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory–Roald Dahl

Contrary to what I’ve been writing about Roald Dahl’s books on here (those were the questionable ones to be sure) I do actually enjoy his writing. It is not really for toddlers, but I should’ve probably knew they weren’t going to be. My bad. However, this book was totally lovely! Just as I remember it.Continue reading “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory–Roald Dahl”

The BFG–Roald Dahl

The kid and I have moved on from short baby stories for the soul purpose of helping me to not keep reading the same story over and over again at nap time. Thus taking us over to his sisters collection of Roald Dahl books that I thought would be a safe bet when reading toContinue reading “The BFG–Roald Dahl”
